So is this a Washing machine or a Dryer? It is hard to tell with these front loaders. If it is a Washing machine it is not suppose to dry.

If it is a Washer: Do you mean it is not spinning the close to squeeze most of the water out before you put them in the dryer?

If it is a Dryer: There is usually a lint trap just inside the door. However, if that is clean then you could have lint building up in the hose behind the dryer where it is supposed to vent outside. Sometimes that hose gets squashed between the dryer and the wall and doesn't allow the lint to move freely out of the tube. You can remove it and clean it out with your vacuum cleaner.

If the filter is clogged would it quit working

Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

What does code E2 mean

E2 Indicates that the filter needs to be removed and cleaned. It's a good idea to clean the filter at least once every 2 weeks, as standard routine maintenance. Be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before removing and cleaning the filter. You can access the filter by pulling on the filter frame handle on the right side of the unit, behind the front louvers. You can either vacuum the filter or wash it in warm soapy water (dish washing detergent), rinse it and dry it thoroughly, before reinstalling it. A hand held hair dryer will dry it pretty fast.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Shortly after I turn on the sanitizer on the machine, it turns itself off (the whole machine). Does it need to be cleaned?? What type of solution do I clean the boards in??

Remove the plaques and using an old tooth brush clean with mild soap and water.. Rinse thoroughly, towel dry and finish drying them with blow drier. The interior of the unit and it's filter should also be cleaned. Depending on what type filer it uses (Aluminum mesh or soft mesh plastic) they too and can be washed with mild soap and water, rinsed and thoroughly dried. Any other type filter material may need to be replaced. Clean the interior with canned compressed air with a straw nozzle and a dry paper towel.

Of course, before you do any of the above, unplug the unit.

Craftsman wet dry vac no longer sucking enough to use, cleaned the filter, sounds strong but barely works??

Buy a new filter. Make sure hose is cleaned out. Sometimes if the filter is wet and not allowed to dry it will do that. Also make sure hose is on the right outlet

I have Black and Decker wet and dry vac how do I best way clean it out when it is full of dirt and dust ? Where is safe place to empty it when it is full ? Without making such a mess. Do I just remove...

Wet and dry vacs are great to have. In order to use the wet function, you must detach the dry filter or bag from the motor. You will have to seperate the motor head from the collection cannister to do this. Once the dry filter or bag id removed, then you can use the vac for wet applications. Remember to clean and dry out the collection cannister after every wet use. Don't forget to reattach the dry filter or bag for dry vac use. Occassional cleaning of the dry filter or bag will prolong the life of the vac. This can be done by gently aggitating the filter with a small hand brush in a well ventillated open area. Preferable outdoors and over a trash can.

Does not dry thoroughly in sensor mode heard that softner sheets may require cleaning the sensor . How do you find and clean sensor.

First, I always set the dryness level at the maximum dry level, because the Korean's "Normal Dry" is what we call "Damp Dry". The sensor is located just inside the door, by the lint filter. If you stick your head into the dryer drum and look back toward the filter you will see it. (two curved metal bars, about an inch apart and about 5 inches long.) Clean with soap and water, or I've heard rubbing alcohol works. If your sensor bars need cleaning, the dryer usually will go quickly to the 6 minute mark after starting.
