Question about Splendide 6200

1 Answer

Fixing the broken door.

I broke the handle, and I super-glued it back. The super glue seems to hold very good, but I forgot which way the pointed lever faces, and how to put the spring on. I've been trying to put it back together, but haven't been able to.

I took the pin, spring, handle the hook all out. Any know? or at least which way things point?

Re: Fixing the broken door.

The hook part points to the right because it has to engage the electric lock which is the right, in inside of the machine.

The rubber bladder doesnt seem to come right off. i pulled it from the top and it comes off, but it seems like its glued in spots and i dont want to put a hole in it by pulling it off.

Most rubber door seals are held on with a wire with a spring. But some older Frigidaire(sears model #starting with 417.) Are glues on and need to be carefully removed so not to tear and glued back on

How do I remove the door striker that is glued to the door.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are trying to replace the door striker on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The door striker should only be held on with 2 screws. Take the 2 screws off and you should be able to replace the striker. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have a Hotpoint WDF740 washer dryer. When I turn the dial it doesn't register any cycle it doesn't make any noise when the dial is turned, therefore I can't use the machine at all. Can this...

This just happened to my hotpoint washing machine, I realise it has been a long time since this has been asked but since my answer is different from the others I thought I'd add it anyway in the hope it will be useful to someone one day. The fix was super easy, all that was wrong was the plastic knob itself, which had broken internally. I only found this out after taking the top and front covers off, which is an easy enough procedure, I did it this way: unplugged the washing machine, removed two screws from back of machine that hold top cover in place, then using a putty knife pushed between the top and front covers front to back right at the corners, thus releasing the top cover, once this was out I could unclip the front cover and get to the screws that hold the control board to the front cover. I unplugged the electrical connection to the board, removed all the screws and unclipped it from its plastic cover. At this point I could see the plastic knob had broken, I recovered the broken bit and glued it back on. After the glue dried, I just put everything back in place reverting the previous actions. Hope this helps. If you don't have glue or can't find the broken piece, you should be able to just buy another plastic knob off the internet.

How to change door rubber on miele premier 300, can the front of machine be opened allowing to change the door rubber

I'm assuming you mean the flexible rubber between the door and the drum. Can it be replaced? The short answer is no! However...
I recently repaired a door rubber with a tear that caused the water to flood onto the floor. Here's how:
Yes, you can open the front to get to the door rubber however the rubber seal is glued to both the door and the inner drum lip.
You may have to tilt the machine on it's back to remove three screws from the underside of the front lip. (I forget if you need to take the water pump cover out as well but it wouldn't hurt to do so.) This allows the front panel (including door) to drop down a quarter inch or so and be eased out a little.
This allows *better* access to the drum rubber. To repair a tear - really the only reason you would want to do this - you need glue and some tape.
The door rubber is silicone and will stick with normal 'super glue'. However, bear in mind that these machines can do a wash up to 95C, which is hot enough to soften superglue.
I found a new version of superglue called Repair Extreme by Pattex that copes with temperatures up to 120C. It sets in about 5 minutes.
The glue needs to be flexible. Do not use epoxy resin.
I gave the glue some form by sticking a 10-15cm piece of duct tape - the silver shiny plastic tape plumbers use, readily available from any hardware and most supermarkets - to the *back* of the drum rubber. It's a tight squeeze to get your hands in there but it can be done.
Take the tension off the drum rubber by moving the front panel roughly back in place.
Then squeeze a generous amount of glue along the tear (about 3cm long on the bottom edge; a typical problem) to completely whet the edges to be joined.
Apply a little pressure to the location of the tear for a few minutes to help the glue hold fast. Leave the glue to set for at least half an hour before reassembly.
If you can source a replacement drum rubber the old one can basically be removed by force. A good cleaning and then a suitable glue could stick a new unit in place. However, if this is required, seriously consider buying a new unit. It is difficult to make a good seal that will not leak and may not be worth the effort in the first place.

The washer control knob came off in my to reattach?The white sharp things behind the knob..some are broken? Can I glue it? With what kind of glue or are there replacement parts?

Most likely the knob itself just broke. You would do better to replace the knob than glue it because if you glued it and ever had to replace the timer then you might cause more damage getting the knob back off.

I have a frigidaire front load washer model fwt449gf. What is the best way to get the door safety switch out? The front seal appears to be glued on so that route is not available.

You can carefully pry off the seal with a knife or similar tool, focusing on the glue points which on mine were at the 2, 4, 8 and 10 o'clock positions. I then installed a door lock switch kit which came with glue/cement to glue it back on once you are done, but you could probably use any good general purpose contact cement because the seal wants to stay put on its own.

Door broken at hinge area on Maytag front load washer 24".

Try using some J.B. Weld on it instead of glue. It will essential form a weld and should hold up better. You might want to give that a try. Good luck and best wishes.

Frigidaire Washer GLTR1670AS0: broken shocks + chipped rear shell

Check the diagram for the part you described as missing a chunk, it might be possible to get it as a replacement part for not much money. I would caution against trying to use any type of "super glue" since it doesn't have the durability to withstand the repeated shock and vibration that this part will experience. If the broken part is item #22 (shell/rear bearing) then the cost for the part is $170.00 - check the diagram to verify what your broken part looks like at the following link:
(copy and paste the entire string, as the hyperlink doesn't always load on the fixya site) TUB,MOTOR&documentId=R0111530&backToLink=Return to Sub Components list

IF I was going to attempt to repair (glue) the part, I'd use something like JB Weld for plastics as it would likley provide better results and I'd try to keep the inside as free as possible of any excess so as not to snap clothes, etc. Good luck to you and hope I've helped.

I broke the door handle. How do I open the door?

I went to the RV dealer and looked at a new unit to see how the door handle actuates. After I understood that, I was able to take a screwdriver and GENTLY duplicate the same action. I had some success for several months after gluing up the broken handle before it broke again. The second gluing attempt didn't hold at all so we'll be purchasing a new handle unit. From some of the reader's forums, it is indicated that this is a very common problem. Supposedly, they have reinforced this replacement part. Unfortunately, you can't just purchase the piece that's broken. You have to buy the whole assembly for $40-$50. Nice after market income for the manufacturer since it happens so often - expensive for us. I just hope the new one is sturdier.
