I was fixing some minor problems when I had the machine on its' back side a pin fell out. I wasn't sure where it came from; looked but to no avail. I put everything back togther and the spin cycle didn't work so back apart thinking the pin was the problem but I remembered a connector that I left loose. While I had the machine on its' back I was using a very bright light and found a small plastic bottle with a pin in it. Upon further investgation found another bottle but no pin. Perfect fit of the original pin that I found. Leading to my puzzling question, WHAT IS FUNCTION OF THESE TO PILL BOTTLES AND PINS?

Re: not a problem but more of what is it?
The pins are shipping pins, heldin by cotter pins to prevent the tub from shifting in delivery, when the unit is set up initially, the shipping cord releases all the pins ans instead of having htem hit the floor they fall into conviently located plastic cups. they have no function past that you can discard them

The steering column wheel has 2 pins pushed into the back side of it and as you turn the steering wheel making a turn, the pins slide over the humps of the blinker signal. As you return the wheel back to center to drive straight, these pins then hit the humps in the turn signal and push the turn signal back to the original position. It sounds like one of these pins fell out or broke off. You need to pull steering wheel and check to see if these pins are still inserted on the back side of the steering wheel.
My wife has the same model and the planetary unit fell off shortly after we bought it. Since we had moved overseas to a remote pacific island, getting it fixed under warranty was out of the question.
Since the rotary unit is a pressue fit, I pressed it back into place and it worked fine for about 3 months before I had to repeat the process. After that it became a monthly ritual.
I finally decided to fix it for good. What I did was drill a 3/8" hole in the center of the nub in the middle of the inverted rotary cover plate. I then drilled a 5/16" pilot hole in the center of the grooved shaft that the rotary cover plate presses onto. I then tapped that hole with a 18 NC tap. I was careful to tap it just a little shy of the depth of the cap screw that I was going to insert into the threaded hole so that it would jam as I tightened it. I then greased all the gears with a white machine grease and pressed the roary cover plate back onto the shaft. I then put a washer on a 5/16"-18 x 1" socekt head cap screw and clamped the thing together. It hasn't come off in the last 2 years.
While I am moderately skilled in this sort of thing it wasn't a precision operation. Since I was living in a fairly remote location with no shop, I did the entire operation on the kitchen counter using a handheld electric drill. Probably the hardest part was determining how deep to tap the shaft. I did it by trial and error. You can adjust the depth by using a washer or two of varying thicknesses.
I'm really surprised how lame a design using a press fit for this assembly is. They could easily prevent the problem by using my approach or even putting a cotter pin through the shaft and reciever tube in the rotary cover plate (a small hole would be needed in the side of the tube to set the cotter pin).
From what I've seen on the internet while looking for a solution, this is a fairly pervasive problem.
We thought we were buying a high quality machine that we thought would be reliable in our remote situation. Fortuantely, other than the falling rotary cover issue, the machine has worked great.
The pin fell out of a catch cup used for transporting the washer when new. It is not important unless you put it some place it does not belong.
If you laid the washer down to do the repair you probably got the base plate out of alignment. Open the lid,reach inside and grab the wash tub. Pick it up as much as you can and shift it around. It will usually reseat the plate. Also block the front of the washer with your foot and raise the rear of the washer off the floor. The self leveling legs should drop down. Let the back of the washer loose and it will settle in on the leveling legs.
This washer should be left in the upright position to change the drive coupling.
I fixed this in a 2010 Rav4 by lowering the glovebox all the way and finding that the cover to the cabin air filter had fallen off and was jamming the hinge of the glove box. To lower the glove box, pull the glove box side walls inward until the lock tabs clear the sides of the opening and you can rotate it all the way down. Clear whatever is jamming the hinge and rotate the glove box back into position. Be sure the hinge is pushed all the way forward onto the corresponding pin before closing the glove box, otherwise there will be misalignment. There is also a plastic air piston on the right side of the glove box assembly that damps the movement of the glove box. Be sure the piston assembly is secured into the two corresponding locking pins (one on the glove box, the other on the glove box opening) before closing the glove box.
Try a camera shop that still repairs obsolete camera's, if you have all the parts it can be fixed or replaced ( top cover ) with a good used one . If your KR10 has a flash socket on the front of the camera buy a flash bar and use that. Be sure the loose wire from the hot shoe is not touching anything.
HI i just recently 5 min ago fixed this problem.....I tried for days. Most likely something like in my case a small bobby pin fell in the back tray and went into the machine. Some people turn the machine upside down and shake it to get whatever it is out.. nothing fell out of mine when i tried this.. I had to take off the left side of the machine panel ,,,2 screwss in the back and pry down and outward there are 2 screws in the front as well under the silver corner push downward on edge.
I held a piece of paper in front of the front roller and revese fed it into the machine by turning the exposed "wheel " on the left side. You have to guide it through lift up top to see in there as the paper goes under the white rollers. At this point the paper may jam so look inside top at the white rollers about an inch from the right there is a small rectangle shaped hole in there is a black plastic part that part needs to be lifted with a paperclip so the paer can be feed under it,,,,at that point is when the paper i was reversing pushed out a bobby pin.....now mine works great again......main thing here is there mostlikley is something clogged in there,,blocking the paper.........also check you paper that gets stuck my paper kept having a bend in it where it jammed and thats where the pin was in there.
You should be able to place it on the retainer and press it on, you may need to move it around a bit. If it just flat won't snap back on, check the retainer to make sure that the pins that fit into the clips on the back of the key aren't bent or broken, and check the clips on the key to see if the sides are bent or broken. If the pins or sides of the clips are bent, take a small flathead screwdriver and straighten them. If they're broken it will need to be replaced.
WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)
