Turns over and tries to start but doesn't, but later or the next day starts right up. It normally reuns great except for this problem. it has 123000 miles on it. ideas?

have you ever replaced a fuel pump or fuel filter on it, next time this happens turn the ignition off take a rubber mallet or your palm of your hand and hit the bottom of the fuel tank around the center of the tank give it a good thump, try to start it. sometimes this will get you home but is just a temp. fix if its a fuel pump. open the fuel door remove the gas cap and put your ear where the cap was have someone turn the ignition on without trying to start it,if the pump is working you should here the pump it should pump up and turn off when it gets up to pressure. you could have a bad fuel pump relay also. your problem is either gas or electrical its just a matter of doing some checks.

My Bosch Nexxt DLX series has an E:04 error code

The E04 code is a blocked pump code.

You will need to remove the round door on the bottom right hand corner of the front panel. Behind that door is a cleanout handle on the pump. You will need to unscrew that and clean it out. When you take the cleanout off there will be some water in the washer so put a pan under it OR have some towels handy. Or better yet a shop vac with the paper filter removed. You can loosen the cap about a full turn and another quarter turn before water will start to slowly flow from it. With a shop vac you can suck the water up while controlling the flow with the cap. Easy peasy. Once the water stops unscrew the cap all the way and pull the basket out. If it\'s really full it can kind of act like it\'s jambed in there but it will come. Dump the crud and don\'t forget to check the hose that goes from the tub to pump for debris. Also make sure the impeller inside pump will move and doesn\'t feel cocked to one side. If you have it put a little petrolium jelly around the threads and o-ring of the basket cap before reinstalling it. It will make removal easier the next time you clean it. If you have trouble let me know.

Kenmore Elite HE3 - Washer stopped - door locked - did not drain and spin - Getting error message F02

  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer.
  3. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
  4. You can see a diagram of the pump at
  5. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap.
  6. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise.
  7. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand).
  8. Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface.
  9. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly.
  10. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. If the error comes back, you may need to replace your drain pump.
  11. Replace the kick panel if none are found.

I have a Kitchen Aid refigerator with a top freezer. I'm trying to replace the water filter on the bottom of the unit, which is with the grill. The cap of the filter won't turn counter clockwise to remove....

  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left. (Counterclockwise)
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.

Where is the fuel pump located on 1998 Plymouth Voyager and how will I gain access to it because I'm not having any fuel pressure in the fuel rail. The van is trying to fire and runs for a second then...

The in-tank fuel pump module contains the fuel pump and pressure regulator which adjusts fuel system pressure to approximately 49 psi. (338kPa). Voltage to the fuel pump is supplied through the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump is serviced as part of the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is installed in the top of the fuel tank and contains the electric fuel pump, fuel pump reservoir, inlet strainer, fuel gauge sending unit, fuel supply line and pressure regulator. The inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator and level sensor are the only serviceable items. If the fuel pump requires service, replace the fuel pump module, using the following procedure:

  1. Remove the fuel filler cap and properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the fuel tank assembly from the vehicle.
  4. Clean the top of the tank to remove any loose dirt.
  5. Using special tool No. 6856 or equivalent, remove the fuel pump locknut by turning it counterclockwise.
    1. Remove the fuel pump and O-ring from the tank. Discard the O-ring.

    To install:
  6. Thoroughly clean all parts. Wipe the seal area of the tank clean. Place a new O-ring in position on the pump module.
  7. While holding the fuel pump module in place install the locking ring and tighten to 43 ft. lbs. (58 Nm) using special tool No. 6856 or equivalent spanner-type tool.
  8. Install the fuel tank assembly.
  9. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill the fuel tank with fuel. Install the fuel filler cap. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position to pressurize the system. Check the fuel system for leaks.

I have an kenmore elite with error code f02???

The drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap).

Unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Pump Blocked - Cannot open/remove cap

the pump cap goes back into the machine about 7 cm (3 inches). It has openings that allow the water from the tank to drain during normal operation. However, if something (like a hairpin) is long enough to lodge between the cap's hole and the drainage tube then when you try to twist the cap open it jams against the offending item (hard to explain without a diagram). The only way to remove it is to tip machine up, unscrew whole pump unit, undo clips holing it in place and then pulling rubbish out. It's a pain. Then make sure the propeller is back in place, securely (or this will lead to more noise and refixing - which will be easier 'cos at least you can get the @#$#$% cap off now).
