The filter is located at the rear of the m/c, remove lower rear panel, and u will see a large black hose on the right, remove clip and hose ,inside u will see the filter, remove and clean ,refit making sure u get the hose on properly.
If your outlet pipe goes into the sink waste, remove connection and clean inside.
If it goes into a stand pipe make sure it is clear at the outlet end where it goes outside.
Also if u do not already do this, put the washer on a very hot wash with powder in but no clothes and let it do a full prog.
This is called a maintenance wash, and should be done 4 to 6 times a year, this helps to keep it clean and stop it smelling.

Also make sure u are using sufficient powder, and not washing everything at 40oC.
Plz rate my sokution.
Thanks.

Why is my ac window unit not cooling as well as it use to? .


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A, is not cooling as well as it used to. Please try cleaning the air filter as well as the cabinet.

Air Filter Cleaning:

The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing.
• Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.


Cabinet Cleaning:

• Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
• Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
• Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
• Plug in air conditioner.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

What does the code f-05 for a hotpoint ultima WT640 1400 SPN


F05 measn some blockage, check and clean the filter at the front; remove the top cover of the machine,(power off) and disconnect the flexible hoses from the dispenser. Check if theyre blocked. The dispenser itself can be seperated - generally held together with plastic clips. Clean out any crud or hardened detergent.

Fabric conditioner is taken from the detergent tray by siphon action. Most likely flexible siphon pipe is blocked. Remove machine top, identify the pipe coming from the softener compartment, detach and clean.

Hope helps.

HEAT PUMP/AIR CONDITIONER UNIT SMELLS ONLY WHEN AIR IS ON


Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.

I have a Renault 225 sport cup. The problem I have is with the water bottle for the washers. This has been smelling really badly for some weeks and when I spray the windscreen the smell inside the car is...


Are you sure the smell comes from the washer water and not the air conditioner? If the washer water smells you will smell it strongest on the windscreen on the outside of the car. Check this to be sure you have located the source of the smell.

Commonly smells inside the car come from the air conditioner because there is mould growing on the air filters. These can be taken out and cleaned to get rid of the smell. Look in your user manual for guidance on how to do it.

Smell in washer


What kind of smell is it?  If I can guess, I think it may be a musty or "locker-room" (sorry for bad memories) smell.  I have found that sometimes a change in detergent (or sometimes the same detergent you have been using for years) can cause build up and retain that musty smell.  I had to actually remove a inner basket completely and wash out both inner and outer drums to get rid of the funky smell.  She had used the same detergent for years.  Do you wash a lot of clothes in cold water?  This could also make the situation worse.  Try running a full empty load on hot with a bunch of bleach through the wash cycle, then stop the unit for a bit and let it soak and see if it clears up.  Also, try changing detergents and use a HE type soap.  HE causes very little sudding action, which in turn will stop the build up.  If this doesnt work, you may have to remove the inner tub and clean out both baskets (a lot of time, and need a special wrench, unless you know how to work it off).  Let me know if this helps any.   Jim
