Synonyms of "Washer" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between washer (a flat disk, not washing machine) and gasket ?
A: https://www.melfast.com/blog/2012/08/ask-the-fastener-distributor-what-is-the-difference-between-a-flat-washer-and-a-gasket/

This is a very technical question.
Q: What is the difference between washer and washing machine ?
A: same thing. washer is just easier to say, and it's understood that you mean washing machine.
Q: What is the difference between washer and gasket ?
A: This is a hard question. I enjoy fixing things around the house and working on cars, so I've used a variety of washers and gaskets before.

I honestly had to use google, because they are so similar sometimes.

I like this definition for gasket. It basically prevents air or liquids from escaping, it acts as a seal.
"a flat piece of soft material or rubber put between two joined metal surfaces to prevent gas, oil, or steam from escaping"
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/gasket

Now, for washer.
"a flat ring of metal, rubber, or plastic that is used to make a tighter connection between two pieces or parts of something"
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/washer

Here's what got me a little confused. Sometimes washers are made of rubber, or a soft metal like aluminum or copper. So in addition to making a connection tighter, they can also act like a gasket when a softer material is used.

In addition, washers can also ensure that even pressure is placed on the surface that the washer is on top of.

Sorry for the long reply, it's just not an easy question for me to answer, but I tried.
Q: What is the difference between The washer wouldn't work this morning. and The washer didn't work this morning. ?
A: The first one sounds more formal but they both mean the same thing.

He wouldn't take it
He didn't take it
- the first sentence sounds like he was rejecting it over and over. The second one sounds like he just rejected it once (because if you don't take something if you are offered a chance then you could be rejecting it) and went on his merry way. In both cases he did not take it, so the meaning is the same but there is undoubtedly a slightly different nuance. I assure you that, if you used both interchangeably, the meaning you wanted to get across would not be lost.
