The start button fell or broke behind the panell

top lid needs to be slid back first to access console, this is achieved by removing 3 Torx Screws size T20 from rear of lid. Next: slide dispenser drawer out and press down on tab in rear of drawer and remove complete dispenser drawer out.
you can now see another Torx Screw that needs to be removed. once this is done, the console will snap out of place, just grab it buy the center and corner and tug on it carefully, you will hear clip unsnap and entire console will be accessible

The detergent/softener/bleach tray looks moldy and it is only possible to wipe out part of it. More important on the last load the softener did not dispense and the dispenser is now full of water on top...

the drawer is removeable, there is a concave tab where you depress firmly down; to bypass drawer stop. remove and clean the drawer and all compartments under hot water. also, now clean inside the dispenser cavity itself. finally. remove both hoses on back of machine and clean the inlet screens.

How can I replace the pump belt of a washing machine Sears Kenmore model #110.82671710 stock #26717

The Kenmore top load washing with the given model number 110.82671710 is a direct-drive type and doesn't have a pump belt. The pump is directly coupled to the rear spline of the motor.

The cabinet needs to be removed if access to the drain pump and replacement is necessary. Remove the screws attaching the bottom front corner of the console to the top of the cabinet then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base. Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up and set the cabinet aside.

With the cabinet removed, pry the clips securing the pump to the motor off and remove the pump.

Detach the hoses from the drain pump and attach it to the new one then install it back into the rear spline of the motor and secure it with the retaining clips. Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

How to clean pump filter on lg wm2688hwm

No, probably have a bad water pump, very common for this washer. I would pull the washer out, lean it against your wall, brace or block it up so you can crawl under it. You will see where the drain hose comes out of the bottom left of the drum and enters the drain filter. Remove the hoses and check for debris or clothes in the hoses or where the drum outlet is. If no restrictions then replace your water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

OE error

First, open the small access door at the lower left on the front of the machine. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine. Then, unscrew the big knob to remove the filter and clean out any obstructions there. If you have the "OE" error code, which is really a "DE" (drain error) code, and you have checked the filter and it is clear, then most likely the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall. You can reach through the large hole in the bottom of the washer base to access the pump. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 5.5 or a 6.

Bearing on front load washing machine needs replacing (Frigidaire

You will need to replace the tub rear shell/bearing assembly (part # 131525500).
To do this, practically the whole machine will need to come apart.
To remove the drive pulley, remove rear cabinet panel. Remove the pulley screw and pull back on the pulley (you may need to giggle it as you pull to remove it).
For the shock pins, grab the open end with a pair of vise-grips. On the "pointy" side of the pin press the tab in with your finger (if you can't push the tab in slide a 9/16" socket onto it) and pull the pin out with the vise-grips (twist back and forth slightly as you pull).

A qualified tech could replace the rear shell/bearing in about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I can certainly give you more help if you need it, let me know.
Good luck!

Miele washing machine

All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
