Though the idea of repairing a clothes dryer can be pretty intimidating, the truth is that some types of repairs are surprisingly easy. Yes, dryers appear to be built like huge, impervious metal boxes, but they are typically pretty easy to open and relatively simple to fix.


As shown at How Clothes Dryers Works, a clothes dryer has a motor that turns a big drum containing the clothes, a heat source for blowing warm air into the drum to dry the clothes, and controls for operating the motor and heat source.
Some dryers have an electric element to do the heating while others utilize a gas flame; the latter must be vented.
Clothes dryer problems generally occur because the heat source doesn't heat properly or the motor fails to turn the drum.
If a gas dryer doesn't dry properly, the first thing to check is the pilot light or igniter--it may not be lighting the burner. The second thing to check is the dryer's vent-if it is clogged with lint, the heating system won't work properly.

Pay attention to basic safety measures when working on a dryer. Always unplug the dryer, and turn off the gas supply to a gas dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.
As with most appliances, maintenance will keep your dryer purring. Clean the lint trap after every load, and clean the vent system once a year.

Samsung vrt nd or nb error code


ND is not draining, the washer probably has water in it and won't open. In which case you need to open the little tiny panel on the front of the washer and pull out the little hose and drain the washer and then clean our the filter next to the hose. NB means not balanced and the clothes have become unbalanced, move the clothes around and start it back up. If it happens a lot the washer is not on even ground and needs to be leveled.

Hi i have a hotpoint aquarius wd440 14000 spin i have flashing lights on the on off and on the drying heat. It is a washer dryer .but I never use the dryer. can somebody please tell me what's


I believe your issue is a blocked/clogged water drain. If your unit appears to drain all of the water at the end of the cycle, you may just need to clean your filter. The machine can sense when it takes too long to drain and it flashes those particular lights to let you know what the problem is.

Water does not drain after cycle


Hi,
Although I don't know your particular machine, if you haven't already done so check the drain motor lint tray/filter- it could be blocked.
It is normally found in most machines behind the lower front cover.
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE AND /OR RAGS AT CLOSE HAND!
The filter is behind a round panel/knob which should turn anticlockwise- this is when the water is likely to appear! The filter may come out with the cover or remain in its housing. Should just pull out for cleaning.
Hope this cures the problem, if not it could be the drain pump itself malfunctioning. That would be another step.
Cheers,

John C

I have a bosh washing machine WFO2462 and my problem is that: washing solution does not completely drain. I have cleaned the pump several times but the problem still remains and every time I want to use...


I believe that it's on the front bottom right side of the machine. Press the tab down and open the little door and you'll see a hose and a circular cover. You need to place a little towel on the floor and a shallow pan. Pull the drain hose out just about 6 inches and pull off the end plug. This will drain the remaining water in the washer. Put the cap back on the hose and tuck it back into place. Unscrew the round cover and pull which will be the filter. Should be clogged and rinse out the filter at the faucet and reinstall. That should do the trick.

My LG washer shoes OE and I don't know what to do??


If I'm not mistaken this is a drain issue so check to make sure nothing has your drain hose kinked or clogged. There is also a drain filter that you need to check and clean if needed. There is a small door cover on the bottom fron of the washer. First pull the tube out a little and hold it over a container then remove the cap. This will drain the pump and when no more water comes out you can remove the drain filter by turning the cap thats next to the tube you just drained. Sometimes there is still a little water left so you may have to clean up a little but not much. Clean the filter if needed and you can also look in the pipe to see if any debris was left in the pipe. Place everything back and this should get you back to doing more laundry.

Whirpool DU1055xts water does not drain after wash


Hi,

There is a fourth screw under the spray arm. Here are some instructions I put together to clean out the pump. But I do not think this will help the drain. The drain hose or drain pump could be restricted.

The best way to find the restriction is work backwards. Start at the sink where the dishwasher drain hose connects, take that connection apart and try to drain into a bucket. If it does not drain the work your way back to the dishwasher checking at every connection point.

This link will be for the pump cleaning.

Kenmore model 24054 washer that leaves dark streaks on clothes.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump

removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following for how to access the console, pull the cabinet, agitator(s) and tub if necessary.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=ef7d852e2285d2944a8b015a847b15db

You don't have to pull the pump, motor, transmission and drive tube to pull the agitator and tub.

HOWEVER:

A number of the diagnostics and repair procedures for these washers require you to remove the agitator(s).

In order to get the agitators out, you need to remove the "Spanner Nut" and "Drive Block".

Many instructions call for a special spanner wrench to remove the nut. However,

You don't need a special spanner wrench. (About $20 retail)

I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (About $9 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner

nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.

With the agitators and tub out, it's relatively easy to clean out the gunk that builds up over time.

Delta single handle kitchen sink faucet


Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench  and allen wrench  needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.

just pull it off.on the control panel you will see two screws on the front or back back them out as far as you can then pull the control panel slightly forward then flip it back there are two gold clips on the body of the washer with a screw driver holding the handle pointing toward the back pop the two clips off but remember how they go as it can be tricky putting them back on if you don't then tilt the washer at about 45 degree's and pull it forward disconnecting any wires you see then take the body of the washer off and you can start working you will need a special wrench to get the tub block nut off or a small pipe wrench and hammer will do can get wrench fairly cheap at an appliance parts store now when you put washer cover back on tilt to 45 degrees and look down .the front of washer goes under frame and the sides go on top there are two rectangular slots that fit on tabs on the frame look close and you will see
