    I washed my v176 accidentally - I didnt dry it though - I am drying it out after slightly dismantling it - the battery AND phone have the red dot, none are white - would it even be worth it to try and turn it on after I have dried it out? - it almost doesnt sound like it

The white sticker is a witness hint for repairman & service dealers warning them about shorted (and overheating) battery before going any further beyond there.
If you washed and dryied your cell phone you can use it as a good projectile for any big dog jeopardizing you, as a paper holding block in windy environment desks or, in a couple years, as an antiqe and ancient valuable collector piece.

I sold a phone on ebay cuz it had water damage and the guy said he got it going pretty quickly. when i asked how he fixed it he said he put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 125 to 150 degrees. sounds odd but when i tried it on my husband's slobbered (by the baby) phone it worked great!

I was washing my car one day and my VX9800 fell in the wash bucket, I thought for sure it would be shot. Luckily I pulled it out dried it with a towel then set it by the fire place to dry. That was about 6 months ago. my phone still works ok. Has its issues sometimes. The white dot is reddish-pink and the "g" doesnt work right all the time. otherwise. it was worth it to dry it out. So try it and see if it still works.

The white dot is an indicator for service techs to see if a phone has been water or liquid damaged at a glance.
if the dot is red then they won't touch it under warranty.
any repairs they try they will charge for and there is no Gaurantee

Take off the body of handset and put ur phone in sunlight for at least 2 hrs , it will solve ur problem.

The little round sticker is a trigger to tell the technicians that you got it wet. Good luck cuz techs don't like wet phones; you're prolly screwed!

When it come to water damage, and over heat. you have to take it to someone who can tell you the extent of the damage. most likely your going to ghave to replace the phone since it went through that punishment.

Posted on Sep 06, 2007

Your phone battery shorted out. Just replace the battery and it should work. However, the phone also has been water-damaged, so I can't guarantee on how long your phone will work. Most phones will develop problems over time after they've been water-damaged, so you should keep that in mind. Also, the white dots on the phone and battery are liquid indicators. They indicate if the phone has been wet by changing colors. Ex: White to red. This is usually for warranty purposes as phone companies won't fix a phone that's been water-damaged.

The white dot is litmus paper. Measures acidity. When wet it turns pink, that way they know if you got your phone wet or not.

If the phone still functions fully even when plugged in to your charger you are really lucky, however it seems you have very bad water damage to your battery, the only thing you can do is get a new battery i recommend eBay they have the cheapest prices

Most new cell phone batteries have a little white round sticker located on the outer side and also another one attached to the phone, usually found underneath where the battery rests. I'm not sure on the technical specs off this round white sticker, but when I shorted my battery out and it was no longer usable, the round white dot turned red. The white sticker on my phone stayed white. I replaced the battery and my phone worked normally again.

I have alot of particles in the bottom of my washer at the end of the cycle.. if i run another cycle with no clothes they stay in the bottom of the washer..appears to be dirt, leaves..etc


Hello, Suzanne -

So someone, whose clothes are washed in your machine, picks up "crud" on his or her clothes. (My dad used to collect "crud" in his pants cuffs and pants pockets, so my mom would make sure she emptied the pockets and cuffs over a wastebasket before putting his clothes in the washing machine.)

First, make sure pockets, cuffs, and whatever else clothing parts might collect "crud" are emptied over a wastebasket prior to placing in the washing machine.

"Crud" like pet hair or disintegrated facial tissue left in a pocket may still be left over in a washing machine tub after clothes are removed. I use a wet sponge to wipe out the washing machine tub when ever I see left over "crud."

Newer washing machines have lint traps, which are not as easy to access as those on clothes dryers. The washing machine lint trap may need cleaning out.

Where is the lint filter? Why does it put lint all over clothes?


lint is usually removed in the dryer. If you have lint on clothes after going through the wash, you probably left something in a pocket somewhere.

Why does my washing comes out with stains on it.... they weren't there when it went into the wash...


yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.

ASKO washer WL6511XXLPP


Purchased ASKO Washer WL6511XXLP and Gas Dryer with pedestals, 12/01/09. It threw a drum paddle during 2nd. wash cycle. Damaged several articles of clothing.
ASKO replaced the paddle 2/19/09 after a lot of phone calls (lip service from the ASKO 800 #). They claimed the part had to come from Sweden (reason for delay).
Washer threw another drum paddle during 4th. wash cycle. Damaged several more articles of clothing. We have made no claim for the damaged clothing, the retailer has been cooperative.

ASKO has promised to replace the washer after the retailer we purchased the washer from, strongly encouraged them to do so. We are still without a washer (03/23/09). My wife and I are retired, I am 76. Point being; we do not abuse washing machines and we don't like going to a launder-mat.
I know this is not the venue to address this problem, but am at my wits end.

I forgot to empty pocket. a ball point pen exploded and i have ink all over the inside of my dryer. I have not found anything to remove it. Any suggestions?


Try aerosol hair spray. It removes dried ink from clothes, may also work for your dryer. If not, try paint thinner or mineral spirits, available at any hardware store.
