According to kitchen aid reps, you can not clean the filter, you can only buy a new one from them for it. i have cleaned mine, but it is only a limited solution

Vacuum will be working and then it cuts out, like it loses power. Plug it into a different outlet and it starts working again.


Your vacuum has a thermal reset built into the motor. If it is getting to hot it will shut off and won't turn on until it cools down. This is a sign of a clog somewhere or the filters need to be replaced. If you are getting dust building up on the vacuum that is an indicator the filters may need replaced.

What does flashing h f mean


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error HF on your washer means that a water inlet problem has occurred. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

If there is no water in the unit:-

  • Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
  • Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
  • Check inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit:-

  • Check Drain pump operation
  • Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch.


However, it is also caused by a clogged drain filter.

Step One: Unplug Washer

Step Two: Remove front Panel from Washer

Step Three: Locate Filter Assembly(and be ready to soak up water with a towel)

Step Four: Remove Filter. It’s Gross. Check for some coins, socks, toothpicks,etc.

Step Five: Clean Filter

Step Six: Replace Clean Filter

Step Seven: Reinstall the Front Panel. Run load of clothes.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?


yes you can, what you want to do is right after you read my solution... rate it. :D but anyways wht you have to do is take out the filter underneath the bottom tray where the dishes go. and clean out all that yummy wet gross food from last week. it'll be all gunked up. that's stopping the dirty water from draining.

As the other posters mentioned, the problem with draining is most likely caused by a clogged filter. Mine had 14 cents, 2 zip ties, and a bra wire stuck in it. Here is the process (after many hours of swearing and bleeding) so that it should be pretty easy.

The first step is to tilt the washer back so the front is 3-5 inches off the ground. Prop it up with something. To remove the front lower panel, there is 2 phillips screws under the bottom edge. Remove the screws and the panel should drop down off the pegs holding the top edge in.

Inside, attached to the drum you will see a rubber boot with an accordion sleeve which contains the filter. There is 2 green spring hose clamps (the source of many expletives) and a silver phillips screw on hose clamp. To get at the filter, you should not need to, nor do you want to, remove the green spring clamps. You will spend hours trying to get them back on.

I have attached a picture for reference. Unscrew the silver clamp (large one, closest to drum) and pull down the sleeve to get access to the filter. If you are full of water, you can slide a pan inside the machine and just pull down the edge closest to the pan to drain until the water is gone. Reach down into the accordion (gross) and grab the filter. It has a lip on it so you will need to work it out through the accordion thing, but it likely has some really gross stuff in it. Clean it out, wad it back into the boot, and reattach to the drum. Dump about 2 gallons of water into your drum to make sure you are not leaking. Switch the knob to spin cycle and hit start 2 times. It should drain the water out within a couple seconds.

Good luck!

Depending on how far up the growth is, a Q-tip or old fashioned pipe cleaner will do. Typically this is due to the water having the chlorine removed by the filter. I recommend that you remove your filter and install the bypass plug (if needed) and run a few gallons of unfiltered water through the system then let it sit overnight. The chlorine will kill any growth, then you can put the filter back in for filtered water. Usually doing this every few months will keep the "green" out.
