Hi,

Please check out this video which helps you to understand how to use and work with a washing machine which includes the dial settings. Donot worry about models as the use is same with all washing machines.

http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-use-your-washing-machine

or If you love reading then :

  1. Read thoroughly your washing machine owner's manual. These instructions are designed for your particular washing machine. If you don't have an owner's manual, read the button control labels on your washing machine to get an idea of what they do.
  2. Step 2 Sort your clothes. You should wash white or light-colored clothes together and dark-colored clothes together. Clothes should be further sorted according to their material. Heavy fabrics should be washed together and light fabrics should be washed together.
  3. Step 3 Add detergent to your washing machine. Follow the instructions on the detergent box. The detergent should go on the bottom of the washing machine unless your washing machine instruction manual specifies otherwise.
  4. Step 4 Use the special bleach or fabric softener dispensers for your particular washing machine, if you are adding bleach or fabric softener. Otherwise, follow the instructions on the bleach and fabric softener packaging to find out how much and when you should add them to the washing machine.
  5. Step 5 Load your clothes loosely into the washing machine. Load the laundry as high as your owner's manual specifies or to the top row of holes in the tub.
  6. Step 6 Close the lid and set the controls of your washing machine according to what you are washing. Use hot water for only white cottons. Use warm or cold water for colored fabrics. Set the other controls according to the weight and durability of your clothing.
  7. Step 7 Turn on your washing machine. Allow it to work through all of the cycles and turn itself off before you unload the washed laundry.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Gaggia titanium inside cog won't line up with brew units cog, the brew units is in the correct possision. Machine comes on some one said I need a new ct board


If you've had the back off it may be this.....there are two grey plastic prongs sticking out of the back of the casing, when you've put it back on they haven't gone into the two lugs that are on the back of the cog, this affects the two cogs lining up.you may have to pull the cog up a little to line them up when you put the back on, the cogs should line up again as long as the prongs have gone into the lugs. Hope this this helps.

Tips & Warnings
  • Do not set the date or time between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. to avoid damage to your Geneva watch. The gears sit too close together during these times.
  • If your Geneva watch becomes wet, wipe it dry as soon as possible. Keep your watch away from saunas and hot tubs, as the extreme heat diminishes the watch's water resistance.

Why agitator not trning in kenmore washing machine?


If the spin cycle works, but the unit only fails to aggitate......the problem is most likely a clutch or transmission problem. If the unit neither spins or aggitates, you could have a broken belt or even a defective lid switch. Sometimes a model will have broken dogs, or cogs in the aggitator base. To check this, with the machine off..reach into the machine tub..grab the aggitaror and try to turn it manually by hand. If you can turn it and also feel a sensation such as a gear slipping or teeth not properly taking hold or meshing, the cogs or dogs may need to be replaced that are under the aggitator itself. Best Wishes

Dial won't set


you can possibly remove the knob itself, and see if you can turn the dial itself. if you can, then you can probably see the knob is broken. if if the shaft turns, but doesn't move the gears, then you will just need a new dial switch.

Top stitch looks great, under stitch bunches. I have rethreaded, rebobbined, changed tension. same result. :(


Bunching of thread is 99% a top tension problem. Make sure you thread the top thread correctly. Thread the machine with the presser lever up. Test the tension by lowering the presser lever before threading the eye of the needle, by pulling the thread with your left hand and adjusting the tension with your right hand while slowly pulling downwards. There should be no resistance when the tension dial is on zero, and you should be able to feel more resistance when you increase the tension. Ideal tension is between 3 and 5. When your top tension is correct, your machine should operate correctly. If you feel no resistance with the presser foot down and the tension dial on 5, check the tension disks for fluff or broken thread. When you lift the presser foot, the tension disks should open and you would be able to remove any cotton or fluff. Good Luck

How does calender works?


Normally, the dial on the right hand side of the watch has two modes when it is unscrewed- time and date. Pull out on the dial until you hear or feel a small click. Turn the dial a little; if it moves the hour and minute hand then you need to pull out again. When on the correct setting, turn it until you have the date on the right number!

Chain slips on front cogs - half a turn on larger cog followed by half a turn on smaller cog - therefore unridable. The front cogs are warped ,moving left & right when being turned. I have got full...


I have straightened a large cog with a big screw driver, putting it through the outer part and levering against the inside. The metal of the cog bends quite easily and you need to work carefully, checking and correcting from the appropriate side as you go along. Your friends can stand and marvel at your brilliance, you don't need their help.

Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

How do you set the day of the week?


Since you didnt tell me what KIND of watch it is I am giving you a general instructions.

  • Wait until the second hand is at zero (the top of the dial). Then pull the crown knob out as far as it will go to set the time on your watch. Turn the knob in either direction and look at the three additional hands on the time dials of your watch: the minute hand, the hour hand and the 24-hour hand.
  • Step 2 Stop turning the knob when all minute and hour hands are pointing to the correct time. Pay special attention to the 24-hour hand so that you have a.m. or p.m. correct.
  • Step 3 Push the knob back in exactly when a new minute is starting so that your second hand will be correct. Use another clock you know to be accurate as a reference, such as the government clock available online.
  • Step 4 Pull the knob out halfway so you can set the date. Turn it counterclockwise until you notice the date on the watch changing. Stop it and push the knob back in to its starting position once you reach the correct one. Try to set the date before 9 p.m. If you set it after that time, it may not register with your watch that it should switch the date at midnight. If this happens with your watch, just fix it the next day.
  • Step 5 Set the chronograph, or big dial, on your watch. It works like a stopwatch to let you time activities for up to one hour. Push the top button on the side of your watch to start it. Push it again to stop it. Push the bottom button on the side of your watch to reset it.

  • It would certainly help if next time you let us know what kind of watch it is you have, Best of luck.
