Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

A suggestion: better switch handles

A suggestion: please don't sell any more machines that require the customer to pinch and pull a switch to turn on a toploading washing machine. I cannot be done with wet hands. Drives me crazy.

I have two cordless Uniden cordless phones (DECT 6.0) that don't work. Can you fix them and what will it cost me. I'm a retired telephone man. THANK YOU!!! Don Broderick Sandy Utah 801 572 ****

Phones are seldom repairable unless it is just battery replacement. Even Uniden don't fix them, they just sell you a new one or replace under warranty. Phones are cheap to buy, all made in China.

Replacement Program

The replacement program is designed to better serve Uniden customers by making it simple to start their service repair order and to get their issue resolved quickly. This program is used to handle IN WARRANTY customers by replacing your cordless telephone, accessory handset, or two-way radio without requiring you to send the product to a repair facility. When determining a suitable replacement the program takes into consideration the technology and features of the original model that is in need of warranty service. If the same model is available then it will be used to replace your unit, if the same model is not available then a comparable unit will be used to replace your unit. Your order will be processed when we receive a copy of your receipt either via fax or mail.

Uniden Loyalty Program

The loyalty program is an easy and quick option to replace your unit. This program is used to handle OUT of WARRANTY customers. This program offers a "Loyalty" discount on the purchase price of a cordless telephone, accessory handset, or two-way radio purchased directly from Uniden.
Please don't put phone numbers in posts, as you will have all the crazies phoning you, and people trying to scam you out of money. As moderator, I have removed the last 4 digits.

Crankshaft damper turning tool

In a pinch, don't have the right tool, take an old serpentine belt,<br /> <br /> cut it to fit around the damper plus about 4inches on each side,<br /> <br /> take some welders c clamp pliers and pinch the serpentine belt<br /> <br /> close to the damper, now you have a handle to turn as well as<br /> <br /> leverage. good luck!

Crosley washer don't fill up

Hello - Are the house valves turn on fully? Are the hoses kinked or pinched? If not, then it sounds like you have an issue with the water pressure and possibly will need to replace the pressure switch. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I need to know what amp fuse i need for my yamaha htr5840 receiver. i pulled out the blown one, but it only says 125 v. it does not tell me the amps.

The power consumpyion for yor amplifier is 350W / 440VA and the 2 switched AC outlets at the back panel can handle up to 100W, totally 450W. I suggest you to use a 5A / 110V fuse and in case burn down use an 6A / 110V fuse. DON'T INCREASE these values, you may damage the amplifier.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I have a dyson dc07 hoover, is it possible to replace the carry handle

Hi thanks for contacting FixYa. My name is Don.

Whilst it is "possible" to fix the carry handle it is a far trickier job than just buying a whole new Cyclone. For this reason Dyson do not sell the handle separately.

I would suggest you buy the whole new cyclone. You can buy them new for around £30 £40 from Dyson or

You could probably get a second hand one or better still a refurbished one on eBay though. Shouldnt cost you too much on Ebay. Maybe £15

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks for contacting FixYa. Don

The handle on our Marcato Atlas 150 keeps getting stuck and is difficult to pull out for storage. Any ideas?

I opened the rollers to the widest setting (Zero), and placed a folded business card between the rollers. I then turned the dial down so the rollers were "pinching" the card, and while keeping tension on the dial to gently squeeze the card, I gently shook the handle for a few seconds and it came out!

Minolta EW501 Electronic Typewriter switch problem

A totally dead machine is usually the easiest to find the problem. Make sure the outlet works. Test it by plugging in a lamp or fan or something. Once you are sure the outlet works make sure the cord is not cut or pinched. Most machines have a micro switch that turns off the machine if the cover is open. I don’t know this machine but check that the cover is properly closed. See if you can find the switch, and try to determine if it is being activated. Some manufactures have a plastic “tab” that hits the switch when the cover is closed. Those tabs can get broken off.

Last suggestion would be to look for a blown fuse. Again seeing that I am unfamiliar with this model I don’t know it the fuse is in the back cover if it’s no there (near the power cord) chances are that you will have to remove the cover (not open the lid). This means you will have to pull out a screwdriver. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE POWER CORD!!! If the fuse is inside it would likely be near where the power cord.
