Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Why is the machine full of brown pieces - confetti-like in size and in its being thin paper texture? Never needed service. Has provided excellent quality washing. - Re this problem: Occasionally this

Cleaned the filtering/excess-build-up collector and then ran a cycle -without content - hot and with baking soda instead of the regular laundry detergent I use by Ecover. The cycle again left the machine full of these confetti-like brown pieces --- From Steve in Jerusalem Re some others I see here have asked similar or same question: the caked-up drum rim does not apply at all. Re cleaning the fabric softener dispenser - first, I never use softener. Second, I am regularly cleaning the dispenser - all three dispensers --- I keep the whole machine very clean ---

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

SOURCE: Water goes thru fabric softener dispenser not soap dispenser!

Yes you will need a service call, you may have a issue with the water valve or control, At the start of the cycle it should not be filling the softener dispenser till later in the program.

SOURCE: Fabric softener won't dispense

Have you tried thinning the softener with water? It's what I used to do on my older washer, it wasn't the new Duet, but it seemed to help. Hope that helps. (PS I don't use softener anymore as I have developed a terrible skin allergy to these newer longer scented softeners! )

Could be the fine holes in upper dispenser are blocked. Remove soap dispenser drawer and use a washing up brush to clean upper dispenser, replace drawer & test. If not could be upper dispenser or inlet valve.

I have a Bosch shu9925uc/u12 dishwasher. It is leaking from the bottom. What could be the reason & how to resolve it?


Lay a thin piece of brown paper or a thin piece of cardboard and locate the exact location. Sounds like the drain hose may be damaged or improperly seated.

I find it very difficult to remove the paper pattern once the item has been cut out,I use 3M Repositionable Spray Mount.Can any one help


This may help: If your mat is too sticky, you need to prep your mat, sort of like "curring" your cast iron skillet when it is new. (I guess I just aged myself.)
Remove the clear plastic film from the mat. Pat both hands all over mat for several minutes. Next place a piece of cardstock (same size as mat) and remove, repeat 8-10 X. This should also reduce the "confetti" or leftover tiny paper pieces on messy mats.

Hope this helps!!

E450dn get's a paper jam any time two or more sheets are sent on a print job. There is no space between the papges to allow the input sensor to reach the Home position. How do I fix it?


This is a possible pick tire issue. Try to reverse the tires, turning it inside out. Fan the paper and adjust the tray guide. If that doesn't help, printer will probably require service. I suggest you contact Lexmark technical support or your authorized service provider. Thanks.

Cannot use die cuts


No I don't think your machine is defective. Here are some "sandwich" ideas to help you. I know you asked just for Cuttlebug dies; I included other "sandwiches" that you can do with your Cuttlebug. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me.


Cardstock
Chipboard
Magnetic/ Metal Sheets & Thin cork (Media)

Cuttlebug Dies
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Die (cutting side up), Cardstock, Plate “B”

Cutting Sandwich - (Stack from bottom up)
1. A plate
2. C plate
3. Spellbinders Die (cutting side up) that means the side with the
ridges

Embossing Sandwich- (Stack from bottom up)
*Remove C Plate for embossing sandwich
1. Place A plate on bottom
2. Leave die face up on A plate with die cut still in the die.
3. Place one Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat on top of the die.
4. Use 2 or 3 pieces of cardstock to shim.
*Cautionary Note: Using more than 3 pieces of cardstock to
shim Cuttlebug Embossing sandwich will result in B Plate
breakage. When using Spellbinders Edgeabilities card making
dies, shim with only 2 pieces of card stock.
5. Place two acrylic B plates on top of sandwich and run thru
Cuttlebug machine to emboss Spellbinders die cuts.

added detail.

My canon MP830 produces a thin vertical black line on documents fed through the document feeder to be copied or faxed. This only happens using the document feeder.


The expert told me to run a porous piece of paper through the adf 10 to 15 times. I used a piece of Avery textured paper for notecards that I had. The problem was solved after about 5 runs through.

Red Light on, but no jam


Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.

Brown "film-type" pieces


Hi Jaws, I'm a repairman, actually i also love this model of printer. Actually the brown film you print out is a fuser teflon cover or some people call it fuser film. This film functions is to transfer the heat to toner powder on paper. If this fil are broken or damage, there will effect your printer easily paper jam when print and also will effect your print our quality. For example, when you print out something (full of the page), you will find some of the section, their character or graphic(toner powder)will missing or not stick on paper, when you use the finger to touch it. If you need to change the fuser film, you can buy it any where and if you need the service manual to disassembly it, please go here http://www.fastrepairguide.com to download it.
