How do I clean the filter on the Novotronic W 310 Miele washing machine


Cleaning the fluff filter and pump
Check the fluff filter initially after 3 - 4 washes to ascertain how often it is likely to require cleaning. With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of water run out.

If the drain outlet is clogged, more water will be retained in the machine (up to 25 litres).

Caution: if laundry has been washed at a high temperature,
water draining out of the machine will still be hot!

Take the (yellow) filter flap opener from behind the detergent drawer facia panel. Open the flap.

Place a dish under the drain fixture. Turn the fluff filter lid round 2 - 3
times. Do not take it right out.

With large volumes of water when the dish is full, screw the fluff filter back into position and empty the dish before repeating the procedure.

Once the flow of water ceases, remove the fluff filter completely and
clean it.
Remove any foreign bodies (e.g. buttons, coins, etc.) and fluff.
Turn the impeller by hand to check that it is free to rotate. Any foreign objects causing an obstruction should be removed.

Clean the inside of the fluff filter housing. Remove any deposits of lime scale and detergent or foreign bodies from the thread of the filter housing and filter unit (as these objects can cause a leakage
of water). Put the fluff filter back and screw it in firmly.
Cleaning and care

To clean the water inlet filters
The washing machine has two filters to protect the inlet valves. These filters should be checked every 6 months or so, or more often if there are frequent interruptions to the water supply.

To clean the filter in the union in the open end of the inlet hose:
First turn off the stopcock.
Unscrew the threaded union connecting the free end of the inlet hose to the stopcock.
Remove the rubber seal from the recess. Using pointed pliers, take hold of the plastic filter bar, remove the filter and clean.

Put the filter and seal back in the reverse order and reconnect the
hose. Turn on the stopcock and check the connection is watertight.
Inspect the inlet hose which is subjected to high pressure while the machine is in operation. The hose should be replaced if there are small cracks in the surface, or if it has been otherwise damaged.

If replacing the inlet hose only use a hose able to withstand pressure up to 70 bar. Miele's own hoses meet this requirement.

To clean the filter in the water inlet valve:
Using pliers, carefully loosen the ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve,
and unscrew.
Use water pump pliers to withdraw the plastic filter by the bar.
Clean, put back and secure.
The two filters must be put back in place after cleaning.

How do you change transmission fluid on a 2007 explorer with no dipstick


WRONG! At least CHANGE the FLTER and 6.75 quarts of MERCON V transmission fluid, not anything less!! $ 5.50/quart at Advance Auto. Get a Haynes manual or similar - it's NOT clear, what to do either! AT LEAST do what's being described for this "life-time sealed A05 Automatic transmission! Now if you have the BMW car A06 speed (so-called) transmission - YOU"VE got a REAL PROBLEM + use MERCON SP fluid ($ 10 per quart).

NOTE car MUST be SAFELY, up at least 18" from the ground and LEVEL. Parking Brake ON and BLOCK front and rear of ALL tires! To CHECK fluid level Trans must be at least 80 degrees F and ENGINE RUNNING = DANGEROUS !

The problem is you need a screw in fitting to properly fill and check the A05 speed Automatic transmission ADAPTER (up to 100 dealer) 9 at Amazon worked for me. A small pump with hose (similar, but larger than what hand soap uses) (from $ 6 Amazon to $ 32 - $ +9 at the car stores). A new filter ($ 18 to $ 100). WARNING some filters say they come with a Gasket, the don't! The gasket is special metal and silicone should be reusable IF you don't tear or over torque (tighten). REMOVE Drain plug, the trans pan 15 small bolts, take off pan CLEAN WELL, remove magnet CLEAN, remove two small bolts on filter, LET DRAIN 20 plus minutes. Wipe with clean, lint free cloth ALL of the bottom of trans - then LIGHTLY clean the gasket surface. bolt up the new filter. Lightly install all bolts. Then LIGHTLY with a short 1/4" ratchet tighten all of them.- NOT TOO TIGHT!

Remove the Torx screw/plug from the middle of the Drain Plug - screw in the Adapter, put pump hose onto it - pump 5 quarts into pan. Start engine, pump the next 1.75 quarts into transmission. Using another CLEAN transmission bottle, remove the hose AT the top of the pump - put into the bottle, when about a 1/4 th of a quart drain out on its own - remove the Fill adapter - reinstall the Torx Plug. WIPE all off evidence of oil - drive! Check for leaks the next day!

While doing this, why not protect your investment AND SAVE MONEY? Change the Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter? Use Purolator or Ford Brand Filters ONLY! Use 15-40 Chevron Delo Diesel Grade Oil or Shell Rotundunda . In 500 miles or less I would suggest replacing oil and filter - NEVER MIX OILS. (or use WD40 (designed for arthritis - it's fish oil with water IN it! Destroys engines! Factual Opinions' count, feelings base on LIES, don't!

Lime scale build up and slime in bottom of filter tray


If your water is suddenly evaporating into limescale, your local water company may have switched to a different water source, or your water softener device is out of salt. The limescale can be easily cleaned with vinegar and a sponge, but this will keep occuring unless you use water that doesn't contain disolved calcium. Try getting an RO water filter and use that water.

My Bosch dishwasher is failing to clean anything and there's guck and residue on everything. I've cleaned the filter repeatedly to no avail. HELP!


It needs a thorough cleaning, the "guck" is your problem. Do not use liquid, it will make it worse. The "squares" are also detrimental. BOSCH engineered this machine to function best using loose powder. Remove all screens and use a calcium or lime scale remover with water very very hot, like from a coffee pot and run it empty a few times.

I can't get water through my Cafe Retro machine


I ruined one Cafe Retro that way, but I managed to fix a second one, here is how: the worst scale tends to build near the exit filter. If poking holes in it with a needle does not work, you need to unscrew that filter.
(1) turn the machine upside down (2) remove the bottom panel by unscrewing the feet (3) remove the central bolt that hold the filter using a special 'snake eyes' 2-pin screwdriver. Since it is hard to find and expensive I made one myself by filing an old screwdriver. I had to use extreme force to loosen the bolt (I enlarged the holes using a small drill, and used a spanner to get more leverage on the screwdriver). (3) once the bolt comes off, remove the dirt that built underneath, and thoroughly clean the filter holes. I used white vinegar and a toothbrush. (4) reassemble the device and run a commercial descaler through it. It's a great machine but poorly designed with respect to scale buildup, now I descale it very often.

Scrunci steamer no steam when the button (for steam) is pressed Vinegar has been used to no avail. Please advise. Thank you


Its most likely this iron is clogged with lime scale as you have already used Vinegar . Buy a lime scale remover liquid , mix it with hot water. And pour it into iron leave for 24 hours then empty , clean iron out to get rid of any lime scale solution. And try it again..
Hope this helps.

Steam comes out of the base system reducing the amount of steam that now comes out of the iron. The filter has been changed, could it be block with scale.


Yes it could. Try using CLR, Lime Away, both are Calcium, Lime, and Rust removers. They attack and disolve all 3 types of build ups almost instantly. You can buy eithere at most supermarkets, hardware stores. Use it on your shower heads too, it will improve water flow, Follow instructions to the letter,
