SOURCE: I cant get to the washer to change it

Ok is this a standard toilet where the water reservoir tank is just bolted to the bowl with 2 or 3 bolts and is removed separately or is this an older style where the tank is elevated and connected by a long any rate...the flush assembly...usually just has the one large plastic or metal nut that retains the flush valve assembly....they get stuck in place afters a few years and just need a little coaxing...and have been APT/Home maintenance industry for 35 years in USA...I have never had a flush valve that needed to be unscrewed but that doesn't mean it isn't if I were a guessing man which I am generally not (I prefer to know exactly what I am talking about) just like I know that 99 percent of all threaded material in the USA requires them to be removed in a counterclockwise direction...

I hope this helps...if this is a different device altogether...maybe you could send a picture ....good luck....thanks for rating my effort.....the Fang.

Have you tried to remove the outer ring by unscrewing it before you attempt to remove the buttons? I don,t think you should remove the buttons first.

3378513.020 Toilet - The toilet only flushes on the second or third time and it no longer flushes quickly but has to have the handle held down completely until it flushes. What to do?

Not sure about your exact model, but while being more in the electronics / electrical / computer field, I have done a few home repairs to our toilet cisterns with the same fault.
Older cisterns use a small float attached to a lever.
When water is full this L-shaped lever presses a rubber ball shaped grip against the plunger shaft, with shaft and its attached washer seal fully down, plugging the outlet.
The toilet is flushed, brass shaft with its seal-washer is lifted by the linked handle, so water level drains and drops mini-float, which in turn rotates the 'L' away from the shaft, allowing gravity to drop the shaft/seal again.
So if its this system, renew rubber, and check that float still floats.
Newer cisterns such as the one now at home appear to have a float in the center of a large plastic housing.
I've never opened this up since the plumber installed it but I guess it may also work on a friction system..

Fowler cistern. What causes flush buttons to stick?

normally wear and warpage
try sanding the edges of the sections, but the fix will be a new section in the cistern

My fowler dual flush ltoilet slowly leaks water form the cistern into the pan

replace the big rubber washer at the end of the shaft that is above the pipe to the pan
it requires the controls to be pulled from the tank and get advice on how to fit the washer as it is difficult to get in dead center on the plunger
if you don't get it set right the tank will still leak

Fowler cistern doesn't close off after flush

Adjust the screw to raise or lower water to make get it to work right. Some times the installation isn't put in right so it needs to be drained and loosed and set right before tightening down and turning water on.

Half flush does a full flush

It's not nessesarily a half flush just as little water as is possible for that toilet. The full flush has just a little more. It may be hard to tell the difference.

Twyford dual flush cistern

replace the whole control unit
There may be 2 problems
the small washer that shuts off the water flow when the level is reached may be swollen and not sealing properly
the section at the bottom has cracked at a thread level
so by replacing the unit you will eliminate both problems
to remove the unit, turn off the water tap, flush the system, holding the button down until all of the water has gone
remove the inlet pipe at the bottom of the cistern
undo the retaining nut under the cistern and lift the control unit out
there will be water in the bottom of the cistern so use old towels on the floor to soak up the water that will run out
