The teardown information from rbrown67 was very accurate and easy to follow. It helped tremendously in tearing down my machine to replace the AC plug.

SOURCE: Need to clean out lint trap

No, the lint basket/grid does not remove from front panel. This is what drives me nuts about this dryer......the worst lint catch design on any dryer I've used. I have purchased several vac attachments to get down in there, but every so often I take it apart.
You have to remove the bottom lower front panel of the dryer. It's not extremely difficult, just time consuming. I copied and pasted how to do so below thanks to a poster from another site, as I'm not so good at explaining these things in writing.
" Unplug the dryer. Remove the two screws that connect the front panel to the lint trap housing.

- Open the upper cabinet dryer and unscrew the four screws that span across the rear of the control panel.  

- Move the control panel up and be aware that you will have to detach at least one electrical connector to get the panel out of the way (This will allow you to swing the control panel to the left).

- Remove the five srews located across the top of the bottom panel (Previously hidden by the control panel). 

- Swing the top of the panel out and gently pull up to remove the bottom of the panel from the brackets. 

- Unhook the yellow moisture sensor harness 2 wire electrical connector on the lower right side which will allow you to swing the panel to the left. " 


You can download the Service manual online. It has the photo's to show you how. Not sure if this site has it but some other sites do. If you type in the model # + service manual in a search  it should bring up several sites to get it. You may have to pay for it. I ordered one soon after buying the dryer.....you never know when you may need it and being able to order the parts and fix it yourself saves a bundle, especially when it's one small little $5.00 part that could cost $100 or more on a service call. The electrical connections inside the front panel and on the digital console are not difficult to remove at all. I wrote on the inside panels w/ a marker as I removed them the first time I opened it as to how they hook back up. You can also take pics as you go w/ a digital camera if you have one. The 3 plug in connectors on the logic board are 3 different sizes, so they only can go back in one way.
I just got finished putting mine all back together last night.......I had a chewed sensor harness thanks to a chilly tree rat thinking my dryer vent on the roof looked like a toasty place to keep warm.....not realizing he'd fall 20ft straight down w/ nowhere to go but into dryer doing some damage trying to get out.
Anyway, sorry if I wasn't very clear on things, as I said I'm not to good explaining these things in writing, but the service manual is a must.
Good luck and take care, Teresa ; )

SOURCE: dishwasher not cleaning - want to clean drain

We have a Kenmore 665.17702k600 Portable dishwasher with a similar problem. What we did was pop off the drain cover (turns out the one screw wasn't doing anything and just pushed down into the unit when screwdriver was applied). We popped it off by shimmying a screwdriver under the panel, and applying torque on the long end. It just popped right off. Then there was this nasty stale water, and not much obvious debri. We used a wet vac to slurp all that up. So that's the solution we took -- haven't tried it yet, so not sure if it will actually fix the problem...

Csx22br freezer ice build up water runs out bottom of freezer


Your defrost drain hole may be plugged or frozen over. Open the freezer door and remove the lower shelf and basket so you can get to the back evaporator cover, and right under it is the drain hole. Remove what ice may be built up and pour very hot water into drain. It helps to have a syringe to remove the water and pour more hot water into drain. Then use a wire or other flexible tubing to poke into drain to clear restriction then flush with water.

I have my Mom's 193909WB coffeemaker, It runs like a top! How do I clean it?


Here are the cleaning instructions directly from West Bend's instruction manual. Good luck!



Cleaning Instructions
1. Unplug coffeemaker and allow to cool before cleaning.
2. Clean basket, stem and cover in hot soapy water with a dishcloth, rinse and dry. Coffee stains on underside of cover or stem may be removed by scouring with a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser.
3. Clean inside of coffeemaker by filling with hot water until about one-third full. Add small amount of liquid dishwasher detergent and wash with a dishcloth or sponge. Then clean the heating unit well (where stem fits) with a scouring pad, to remove coffee residue. Twist pad inside heating unit well to clean thoroughly. IMPORTANT: If heating unit well is not kept clean, coffeemaker will not perform properly.
4. After cleaning inside of coffeemaker, drain and rinse inside. Clean faucet by letting clear water run through it into sink, while moving faucet handle up and down. Drain water from inside of coffeemaker and dry.
5. Clean outside of coffeemaker with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive metal scouring pads or cleansers on outside of coffeemaker as scratching will occur.

DO NOT WASH COFFEEMAKER PARTS IN AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.

Special Cleaning Instructions
To Remove Mineral Deposits: If coffeemaker is used daily, a special cleaning every 2 weeks OR every week if used for heating water, is necessary. Fill coffeemaker with 1 quart each of water and white distilled vinegar. (If a white mineral buildup has formed on inside of coffeemaker, use an additional 2 cups of vinegar.) Place stem and empty coffee basket in place, secure cover onto coffeemaker and plug in. Allow coffeemaker to complete perking cycle, then let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Unplug and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
To Remove Discoloration: Inside of the coffeemaker can discolor when used for heating water, which is normal. To remove/lighten discoloration, fill coffeemaker with water to the level of discoloration (at least to the 12 cup level, but not past maximum cup level). Place stem and empty basket in place. For every 12 cups of water added to coffeemaker, add 2 teaspoons cream of tartar to basket. Secure cover onto coffeemaker, plug cord into coffemaker and then into outlet and allow coffeemaker to complete perk cycle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes or until discoloration is lightened. Unplug cord and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
Do not use baking soda to clean coffeemaker, as it will discolor inside metal.
After frequent use, coffee residue may collect inside faucet. To clean, unscrew top half of faucet. Move a small brush up and down through faucet. Insert brush through opening inside coffeemaker to clean faucet connection. Rinse and replace top half of faucet.

I've completed the set-up, but the eyepiece still is black. I looked in the trouble shooting guide and it says to check to see if the objective lens cover has been removed. Where is the objective lens...


What I believe you did was mount the scope UPSIDE DOWN. If it looks like the picture in your question the eyepiece and focuser end is pointed UP the mirror is on the bottom.

Turn it around and take the lens cap off.... this end is pointed toward the sky.

I have a maytag MSD2754GR, the freezer bottom is all iced


The drian hole has become stopped up and ice has accumulated in the the drian hole. You will need to unplug the fridge and remove the cover on the back (located at the bottom, 6 screws). On the freezer side there is a drian hole with a rubber 90 and a clear line that runs to the drain pan. Remove line and unstop. Don't not put the line back on yet.

Now for the fun part, remove the basket and the two bottom shelves from the freezer. Half way up the back there are 2 screws that need to be removed. After removing screws pull up on the top cover to so you can remove the bottom cover. The bottom cover maybe froze to the coils and to the inside drain pan. Break the ice with a butter knife, and remove cover ( do not hit the coils). Now you need to break the ice that is froze to the the pan and under it. Once you have remove all the ice you will see the drain hole, use a small pointed object to break ice that is in drain hole. Now you can put the drain line back on and make sure that the other end is in the drain pan under the fridge. Now reassemble the fridge and plug it back up.

It took me about 20 minutes to do this.

Hope this helps.

Tape cassette stuck after rewinding. Will not eject.


This happened to me with a Sanyo model but I believe this may be a universal solution.
Remove the top cover and the front panel.
The tape is held in a basket held down by 2 (only) screws toward the back end of the basket. Unscrew the two screws. Wiggle the basket out. The tape should come out with it.
Turn the basket upside down and the tape should slide out, because it is now not being obstructed by mechanical stuff that was holding it in while it was screwed onto the base.
Reassemble. Good luck!
