Hi from uk if the object sounds as you say between outerdrum and wash drum ? may i suggest you unplug machine and disconnect water supply pipes then remove the rear panel this will give access to the main drain hose from bottom of outer drum which also connects to drain pump this hose is rubber and held usually with circular spring clips each end ? remove hose and you may be lucky the offending item/s?? will be resting hopefully near hole? if you use a piece of wire coat hanger you may /will locate item at the bottom of drum with a little patience? and you never know thge mysterious missing sock ? bra wire/ or the thong ? sure you've heard this b4 ? ps with rear panel off you can also rock the drum and listen for item's location ? and with hose off you can check pump for debri/fluff too hope this helps best wishes

My paper keeps jamming after I changed the drum of my printer in my Brother HL-5250DN printer-- it seems that I touched something when I did so.

1. Unplug the printer.
2. Remove the drum.
3. Make sure there are no obstructions. Check for pieces of paper obstructing the feed and any small objects such as torn paper or even a stray fingernail.
4. Replace the drum.
5. Plug in the printer.
6. Attempt to print again.

The pilot light won't stay on. Also, the heater will just shut off five minutes after turning it on. I would have to light the pilot again and then it would stay on. But know the pilot won't even stay...

There are a couple of things that may be causing your problem. First, the unit may just need a thorough cleaning. You van do this by completely removing the heater cover on each side of the heater. Do this with the pilot off and the heater is cool.

Using a vacuum cleaner (a shop vac works well) that has a hose and brush and crevice tool attachment. Gently vacuum all of the interior of the heater, including the burners and around the pilot assembly. In addition, using a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with), blow out the pilot and the burner ports. After cleaning the Pilot Assembly, check the Thermopile (also called a Thermogenerator or Pilot Generator), it's the solid bi-metal rod like piece that's in front of the pilot light. Track the wire(s) from it back to the Gas Control Valve and make sure the connections are secure. Depending on on the age of the heater, it may need replacing. ( While the heater cabinet is open, using a flash light look up into the vent stack for any obstructions that may be present. If you see any, clean them out. Before reassembling the heater cabinet, go outsie and look at the exhaust stack on the roof. Pay particular attention to the termination cap. Due you see any obstructions there? If so clean them out.

After completing all of the above, reassemble the heater cabinet, light the pilot and take the heater for a test run. If it repeats what it was doing prior to your cleaning and servicing, you'll need to replace the Pilot Generator.

To help you even more, I have included a link to your Owners Manual, just in case you have misplaced yours.

Hope all of this helps solve your problem.

Low or poor signal is mainly caused by the following major factors:

Going Around Physical Obstructions
Wireless networks are also susceptible to obstructions that may lead to low signal. Often, the signal gets reflected, refracted or absorbed by the obstruction.

Common obstructions are:

  • Cabinets
  • Mirrors
  • Glasses
  • Metal objects
  • Thick walls and ceilings

If you have any of these objects between your wireless adapter and access point, consider relocating your access point somewhere high to get around the obstruction.

How to drain the washing machine?

the best way to drain the unit is use a wet/dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose.
once all the water is removed then you can take the small acess panel off the front of the machine and take out the the drain pump plug. look for anything that might be stuck or obstructing the drain pump.
there is a small hole in the acess panel that you need to insert a small screw driver into push the locking tab in and rotate counter clockwise to remove.

Keeps ejecting disc

The laser lens could be dirty or the circuit could be faulty.
You can remove the cover to gain access to the glass laser lens eye, then take rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and clean the lens and it usually works after this. If it is not a cleaning problem, then the circuit itself may be faulty. You can test power to the circuit with a voltmeter to see where the power begins and ends.

Washing machine wont spin

Maybe something is physically preventing the drum from spinning, causing the motor protection to kick in and stopping the machine.

I'd check this out as a first step before calling a repair man:
1) unplug the machine from mains
2) make room between the rubber gasket and the drum for your hand/arm to reach down into the bowels of the machine, in the compartment between the drum and the bowl (or whatever you call it). If you find something strange there, remove it.

I've done this on occasion and have found lots of obstructing objects that don't belong there. Most notably hardware from underwire bras I might add... :)

It is worth a try.

Good luck!

Dishwasher Frigidaire FDB2830CES does not start. All the leds of the pannel work fine but it does not want to start. Seems intermittent.

Check for continuity on both door latch switches (maybe only one on some models) make sure cabinets are not obstructing proper door closure which will prevent the latch switches from working.

Washing machine will not drain water.

you did remove the cabinet to replace the lid switch correct?, try removing it again and unclip the pump assy dont remove the hoses, just unclip form motor assy and hold out of the way, try putting unit into a spin cycle now.. is it spinning ?? or at least he motor spinning??? this is a direct drive unit so as long as he motor spins the pump also spins, with exception of a bad pump , something clogged inside the pump, or an obstruction in the drain line itself.. if the motor not turning at this point id have to believe that switch isn't making contact( but is new and it sure should be)timers not sending down power (doubtfull).alll seems pretty doubtful less the bad switch( remember that with the cabinet removed youll need to TEMPORALLY jump out the lid switch,
