SOURCE: I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring. How can this be resolved

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
goodluck!

SOURCE: cancel forward

The most common star code to cancel call forwarding is *73

If that works, be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me.

If it doesn't, post back here and tell me who your phone service provider is, and I can look up their call forwarding codes for you.

Instructions for call forwarding on a KXTGE234B


Hello Eve Lansing,

Call forwarding is CUSTOM CALLING feature...

(TYPICALLY not free).

Which has nothing to do with your telephone set
(cordless or wired). Since FIXYA is actually a GLOBAL site...
PONTIFICATING about telecom feature invocations would be foolish for me to try...

(But you could look at the nifty wiki page I attached at the bottom to see how WIKI thinks CALL-FORWARD is done GLOBALLY).

Typically local network instructions (were... in my day (long past))
found in the front of your phone book...
The paper-type (in my case formerly Pacific Telephone & Telegraph... (see below for me being foolish)).

Example...
Lets say you were in a USA serving area...

To cancel call forwarding... listen for dial-tone... then dial: *,7,3

To invoke, dial: *72.. listen for second DIAL-TONE (INPUT THE 1+ (FULL TEN DIGIT) destination code (eg: 1+ 415-555-1212)...

If it rings... and is answered... Job done!

Else: (no answer repeat the sequence: *72....
1+ 415-555-1212... (rings again... job done).

To test... simply dial your own number...
(you should hear a "ring splash" (one short ring) on the forwarding line (but will not be able to answer calls there again until you cancel with the *73.

(If you get fast busy... trying to dial *73... the FEATURE NEEDS TO BE ACTIVATED by your local provider.

Hope this was more informing than tedious!!

Nota bene:
If indeed you use the 555-1212 (as seen on TV)... all your calls will now be forwarded to the San Francisco AREA information operator
(bad idea).

T7316 phone does not cancel call forwarding


#73 is a a feature you use on a telephone line to cancel call forwarding (cfw) of an outside call (some codes may differ). You need to have the dial tone of that outside line to cancel the cfw. to cancel the cfw of a norstar set (internal calls to extension) just press the cfw key or press 'feature #4'

I have a KX-T7130 phone system with intercom. for the last 4 weeks, every phone will ring once and then the call gets hung up before I can answer it. I can use every phone to call out, but just can't...


Most likely NOT your phone system (anonymous)

Neither is it likely accidental...

What it sounds like you are getting is a "ring splash"

It is a token ring to let you know a call was forwarded...

My best suggestion would be to call YOUR OWN
number and find out who has been getting your call...

Or at least what kind of TREATMENT your callers have been getting...

Since this is a GLOBAL SITE... I would suggest you consult
your service PROVIDER.. for the appropriate enable & cancel CALL FORWARDING.

BELL-SYSTEM Codes to invoke and cancel

Codes: *72 and *73: respectively

Forward... *72 = ("star, seven, two")

*72 (wait a second dial tone) dial tone + (forward number)...
If the call is answered the FORWARD is complete...
(confirmation)

Else
Repeat the SAME dialing PROCESS
(OK: indicated by two stutter dial tones followed by dial tone).
((confirmation)).

Cancel FORWARD...
*73: To CANCEL forwarding... *73 = ("star, seven, three")

(again OK... Success is indicated by two stutter dial tones followed by dial tone (yet another confirmation))...

Hope this helps...

Call forward will not turn off, have tried *74 & *73 , have rebooted and turned off then on, call divert symbol still on and phone calls still diverted.


To set Unconditional Call Forward ON Dial "*72" for a dial tone. Dial the forwarding number followed by "#". Wait for dial tone. LCD will display "Call FWD Activated"
To Cancel Unconditional Call Forward: dial "*73" and get the dial tone, then hang up. LCD will display "Call FWD Activated

but, since you have tried those two, it could be that there might still be a different type of call forward option that is still ON, on your phone like Busy Call Forward and Delayed Call Forward 1. To Cancel Busy Call Forward: dial "*91". Wait for dial tone. Hang up.
2.To Cancel Delayed Call Forward: Dial "*93" for a dial tone, then hang up.

Let me provide you a link to the website which I used as a reference for your future reference.

Cancel call forwarding


Call Forward Variable is done at your phone by dialing a code like *72 then the phone number you want to forward your calls to. To turn it off you dial another code like *73 or *70. These are popular codes, try the *73 and if it does not work you will have to contact your phone company and ask for the code.

If you have Call Forward Busy/No Answer then you will have to contact your phone company to stop the call forward and setup voice mail or another option.

How do i forward a call to a cell phone?


I believe your landline carrier just needs to have the capability of call forwarding (ie we utilize Verizon for our business). We also use the call forward feature by: picking up line, (hear dial tone) dial *72 [ then phone number you want calls to forward to, even a cell]. To discontinue: pick up line (hear dial tone) dial *73

Can i forward my home phone to cell phone


yes, providing you have that service through your provider. It's typically done by accessing your line and dialing *72 if the service is active you'll recieve a stuttered dialtone. then dial your cell phone number. once you've answered your cell the transfer is established. To deactivate call forwarding, from your home phone dial *73. you should recieve a stuttered dialtone confirming that the foward is off.

You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press *7 2.
In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.

You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.
