Brother AE2500 reverse sewing lever is too stiff to move , how does this work please, bacause in the CD provided with this sewing machine , this lever (plastic) for doing reverse is being moved down t


Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

I think I ground up a plastic bag in disposal....I have cleared out as best I can, turned the blades with a wrench, re set the button, but it won't move, just humming....does the unit need to be...


Don't keep running the disposal when it is humming or motor will burn up.
You might need a plumber, and/or might need to replace disposal.

1) If the disposal cutter disc turns freely, and motor will not start then disposal has gone bad.

2) If disposal cutter disc is still stuck, then you might be able to salvage by removing two nuts on p-trap below sink.
P-trap drops free.
Remove 2 bolts holding tailpiece to side of disposal so you have access to plastic bag from below the cutter disc.
Keep removing plastic bag and keep working the wrench from below. It should eventually give way.
Put wood broomstick down sink opening and wedge broomstick against sink opening to get cutter disc to rotate.
Spray WD40 into opening to help lubricate the struck parts.

3) I wrote ez disposal replacement steps that also cover tips for reassembling p-trap.

My washing has come out of the machine covred in brown slimey stuff, also was very noisy when it was washing, so i cleaned the door seal and ran a 95 cycle twice with a little flash in to clean it then...


This is usually the result of built up residue being dislodged from where it has been lying (quite innocently and without any detrimental effects) between the inner and outer drums.

There will be 2 possible reasons for the residue to have been dislodged:

1) A coin or some other such object has fallen out of a pocket, got between the inner and outer drums, banged about a bit and dislodged the residue. If this is the case, the coin will (If it hasn't already) find its way into the empty pump's debris trap/filter, which you will need to clean out (No harm in doing this anyway and I will attach instructions below for you.

2) The drum bearings are failing allowing the inner drum to flop about more than it should, hit the outer drum and dislodge the residue (This scenario is bad news)

To clean the filter/debris trap:
Depending on the model (You have not stared make and model, so I can't be sure) there is either a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

OR

You will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).

To check if your bearings have failed:
To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.

The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. If there is a problem here, then symptoms will typically include:

A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings and/or hitting the outer drum)

You will have become aware of the spin cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins

The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open

A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is the result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear



BEARINGS FAULTY

I'm sorry to say, that if the main bearings on the drum have failed, this is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are) will be about £20 (($30) or so. But its a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I

Hi! Our FEW 12 machine has not drained so I have manually drained it from the pipe at the back. I think there might be something blocked in the pump. How do I remove the plastic clips that hold it in?...


You don't need to remove the pump (Or you shouldn't have to anyway) Here's a copy of my standard advice for this problem (Most hotpoint machines without a filter access door are covered in paragraph 3)

The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. Your repeat of the rinse/spin cycle is giving it extra empty time and then the spin works OK.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not sure which with the model you mention) there is either a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) or, you will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine.

If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).

I have a Maytag Atlantis Dryer Model MDE6400AYW - it is making a loud screeching noise which seems to be coming from the rear of the dryer. I have unplugged it and removed all the lint from every possible...


If you remove the screws from the lint trap shute, unscrew the 2 screws on the back side of the control panel, on the outer back, and take a flathead screwdrivew or putty knife to the front corners of the lid, you can pop the tabs and lift the top to remove the front of the dryer, to access the drum and motor.

I can't locate the filter on my wmd940a to clean it


You are NOT going to like this. To access the debris trap/filter on this machine, you need to tip it on its back. The trap is UNDERNEATH the drum. A rubber hose comes from the drum to a rubber trap bout the suze of a cup, then on to the pump.

The cup device is held in place by a spring clip that you will need to compress with pliers.

Once the trap is off, you will find a hard plastic cup with a ping pong ball inside. Remove the ball, remove the cup, clean out and re-assemble.

ont you love hotpoint for making this so user unfriendly!!

Stiff / Locking rear break on YBR 125 58


Take the wheel off and remove the brake hub. Now clean out all the dirt and mud from riding in the creek and through mud puddles. The brake shaft has dried mud on it and can not rotate freely in the hub. You will probably need a plastic hammer to punch it out of the casing. clean the shaft and the casing hole the shaft goes through. Grease the shaft with waterproof grease.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt


Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!
