Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have an obstruction in the air flow leaving the drum. I believe that too much latex backing on carpets has cloged the chamber directly behind the drum. I'm having a problem getting this chamber out of the dryer.

Do Not dry latex backed carpets in dryer. You need to have your dryer serviced.

Water continues to flow into bowl and overflows on to the floor


If it overflows while not in use it will be the water valve. If it overflows while in use it could be the water valve or pressure switch or pressure hose kinked or cloged or pressure chamber cloged need model number for more info

Cabin air filter location and replacement. Owners manuel says to take to dealer for periodic changing of the carbon filtration system. Is it under the glovebox? Any tricks to opening and who could sell...


Your cabin air filter is behind the driverside carpet. pull out your floormat, pull back the carpet. now way back behind the center console theres a white plastic door. just squeeze the clips in and pull that out. now theres two cabin air filters. just pull them out with the tab. as for the replacement filters, aftermarket ones will not fit quite right and will usually leave gaps inside the airbox. oem will fit like its supposed to. I'll leave the decision up to you. youll save about 20 bucks getting an aftermarket one.

My kenmore was smoking and is not blowing cool anymore?


Hi

Please check the air filter as it might be clogged with dust, you can try to clean the air filter and re-install it. Also check the air flow from the outside condensers as that might be obstructed and leave a clearance of over 1 meter between the back of the air conditioner and the wall behind it. If still the issue is not resolved then you need to contact a qualified repair tech. as this might be due to a burned wire inside the unit.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Washer door will not open. washer just making humming noise


Hi there,
OE-pump blocked. Disconnect the power before attempting any work. Use of an RCD (plug in power breaker) is recommended.
Disconnect pump from sump hose and check for obstruction in either item. Pump removal: power off, remove cover, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.

Bosch WTM C3300 Dryer


I don't own this model of the Bosch dryer, but my guess is that your hot air flow path is partially blocked with lint or something else. Our heating/air flow element was blocked with a errant latex club hit the elements. I cleaned the flow path and removed the heater obstruction with good results for nearly a year to date.
