Vent fan makes noise at end of cycle

I've seen several posts that advise cleaning the hose coming from the fan - the posts mention removing the door panel. I see 4 Torx screws - also 3 philip heads going into the sides of the inside part of the door on each side, 2 of those are larger and are in and indented part of the metal. And then more philip head screws with the tip of the screw facing the outside panel of the door. Could you tell me which screws need to be removed?

A noise at the end of a vent cycle, as the fan is slowing down, may also be caused by the bearings on the fan shaft starting to go bad. As they get worse, you will begin to hear the oise as the fan is runing, not just as it slows. Solution: replace fan.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series. it takes two cyclyes to dry clothes and they come out smelling musty


Check the vent hose! Have you ever cleaned out the hoses? This can reduce your drying capabilities drastically! Not to mention create a FIRE HAZARD. If you haven't done this since having the dryer installed, you should do it asap. Also check the hookup for the hose & make sure it's not blocked & is the proper material (e.g. not vinyl or plastic)The most common reason is that the exhaust vent is clogged. Longer vent ducts to the outside are more prone to this problem, so if your duct is only 3 feet long, that probably isn't it unless it is completely blocked. If the duct is 6 feet long, or longer, clean it first to see if that will help. A cleaning kit is easy to find and not expensive.

My Panasonic DVD home theater sound system (SA-PT450) is not working and showing error code F61 I've cleaned the fans and they're spinning fine, what could be the problem?


F61 usually means the amp has detected a short or a severe microprocessor error.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

F02 Error Code on Kenmore Elite HE 3T front load washer. Cleaned filer. Pump not blocked. Drain hose coming out of back of washer clean. Even held hose to drain in utility sink to make sure eliminate...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted I understand you have the Kenmore HE3t washer, correct ?


Reading your description and factoring in all you've done and inspected, it may in fact be a faulty pump...(the F02 ultimate worse case) even if it is draining slowly it does not rule it out, trust me I've seen many of them.

By reading your post I've gathered you are pretty thorough so I don't expect you missed it, but I must mention it or I wouldn't be thorough either, I think you can appreciate that, have you checked the back-flow/check ball ?


If not, here's how...

Pull the boot off if you have not and just see if anything has got in there to obstruct the "ball" from working correctly. It is shown here...(this is from the back, but you can do it from the front...just not as easily...in my opinion)

Undo the clamp and inspect inside...if you have not already.

macmarkus_938.jpg

It's amazing how often I find this ball "stuck" or the bellows clogged with debris of all sorts of items...definately worth looking into before declaring the pump has failed. Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

I've also included a more thorough link of my repair tip below

Sa-ht540 f61 i have removed both fans and cleaned them thorourly but im still getting f61 just befor it turns its self off is there anything els i can do?


You don't say if perceived heat or dead fans are issues.

F61 usually means the amp has detected a short or a severe microprocessor error.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

If a dryer is heating but takes to long to dry you can bet the dryer has a air flow problem. I would check the dryer vent first for restrictions due to lint build up or kinks. Remove the dryer vent and clean the lint out. Also check the outside flapper on the end of the dryer vent to make sure it's free of lint and able to open all the way.
It also a good idea to take the dryer apart and check around the blower/fan housing for lint build up.

The drying vent on the front of our miele dishwasher is leaking water and the fan is making a lot of noise at the end of cycle


Hi,

if you remove the door panel you will see a small hose from the fan to the combi dispener. Remove this and blow through it. Also connect it to the combi dispener and blow and then to the fan end and blow. Food and muck block the pipe and the excess water cannot escape back into the unit so instead it pours out the vent. you will find the fan is then quieter.

My dryer heats,tumbles,but takes several cycles to dry a load(small).Not much air coming out of vent and have cleaned vent out.Any ideas?


The fan that pulls the hot air through the dryer and pushes the exhaust out through the vent hose is plugged with lint. You will want to remove the cover on the fan and manually clean the fan out. I had the same problem with my dryer, I was astounded by the amount of lint that was trapped in the fan.
Also look inside the cloths drum on the back wall and make certain the hole in that wall are not clogged with lint also. Use a flash light and make sure the hole are perfectly clean.
Good luck, clean it all out and let me know.

Washer: Thundering herd of elephants. Dryer: Increased drying time


if vent is clean, did you push it too far back afterward and flatten vent hose? also blower fan may be loose on motor shaft resulting in slower rpm also may be excess lint in blower housing ..washer suspect lower bearing although not sure what a stampeding herd of elephants would sound like ..if noise is on spin if during agitation suspect transmission gears ..both will require new transmission ..if noise is more of a knocking noise possible broken bolt in basket trunion block remove agitator to ck
