How do I remove the top of an LG front load washer

I want to remove the soap tray to clean it. It looks like I have to open the top to do it. What holds the top down? Do I just lift it gently or are there screws?

Am machine drum damaged(pit marks)my machine model cannon6570i


Step1 Put on your latex gloves to protect the drum from skin oils. Cover a firm, stable working surface with a few sheets of clean newspaper to prevent spreading toner dust over your work area.
Step2
Disconnect your Canon copier from its power source and allow it to cool down for several hours if it has been used recently. Locate the access door to your toner cartridge and drum, typically located on the front or side panel depending on your specific model.
Step3 Remove the toner cartridge from its holding tray by lifting from both sides and pulling it up gently. Gently shake the cartridge to remove caked on dust, then place it on top of the newspaper sheets. Using your vacuum's hose attachment, clean away any toner dust from the cartridge's holding tray.
Step4
Lift the hinged door behind the holding tray to expose the copier's drum. Turn the spindle to the side of the door to rotate the drum. Apply a microfiber cloth to the outside of the drum as it rotates to clean away toner dust. Continue until the drum is as clean as possible.
Step5
Close the hinged door and replace the cartridge in its holding tray, ensuring that it is oriented the same way as when you removed it.
Step6
Reconnect your copier to the power source and make a test copy to ensure proper function.

Just got a Blu ray disk of MARINE 3.. but wen d disk is being loaded... smethin as WRONG REGION pops up on d scrn.. plzz help me out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clean a DVD disc:
  1. Hold the disc by its central hub and outside edge.
  2. Blow dust from the bottom surface with a can of compressed air.
  3. Clean dirt and fingerprints from the bottom surface with a lint-free cloth dampened with CD/DVD-cleaning fluid or denatured alcohol, wiping from the center outward.
Remove screws from the rear of the case to remove the top and access internal components.
Service a DVD player disc tray:
  1. Open the housing by removing mounting screws and anything blocking the tray. Press the open/close control to the extend tray, then unplug the unit. To remove a clip-on tray front, brace the tray and slide the panel to one side.
  2. Unplug cables between the front panel and the interior. Remove any screws securing the front panel and remove the panel. If it won't move, check beneath it for clips or additional screws.
  3. Remove the hold-down on top of the disc tray and gently pull the tray out of the player. Clean the travel rail and guides with a swab dampened with denatured alcohol. Lubricate lightly with white lithium grease.
  4. Remove the drive belt (using gloves or tweezers) to inspect for dirt, water, or damage. Clean with a lint-free cloth moistened with denatured alcohol. If the belt is damaged, replace it.
Once inside a DVD player, you'll see that it's mostly made up of circuit boards. Not much to work on-except testing a fuse and maybe replacing the tray motor.
Service a DVD tray motor:
  1. Unplug the player and test the motor with multimeter
  2. Unplug the motor plug and spray it with electrical contact cleaner, then plug it back in.
  3. To remove the motor, unscrew or depress the end of each bale and lift out the motor. Replace the motor if necessary.
Clean the objective lens:
  1. Remove the housing and lift the hold-down clamp to expose the lens.
  2. Remove dust with canned air or soft brush. If needed, use a foam swab or a camera-lens tissue dampened with lens fluid.

Frigidaire Affinity washer not dispensing soap


Does water come into the soap slot; if it doesn't the small hose connecting to it has disconnected. To access this you must open up the top of the machine to locate, connect. Another aspect could be the soap slot could be blocked with old soap, and water could be overflowing into adjoining slots. Try to gently remove the push tray to clean out.

Hi my problem is with the dvd tray it does not open . it make a funny noise but it does not open thx


OK I fixed it. One of the CD's had gotten stuck between trays in the loader. I pulled out a few CD's by forcing open the trays gently. However even after removing as many cd's as possible one was still stuck. 1. Remove screws holding cover plate on in back and sides. 2. Remove cover. 3. Lift face plate latches and lift over top of unit. Remove serial cables from connectors on board. Take face plate and place aside. Remove screws from back of CD tray unit and bend back metal tab with flathead screwdriver. Lift CD unit up on one side so you can get your fingers up inside underneath and push stuck cd towards tray openings. You can gently force top few trays out. You may need to shake unit so that stuck cd reaches open end. Pull out CD. 4. Replace faceplate and connect serial cables. Plug in power cord, power on unit and make sure trays will eject normally. 5. Put it all back together!

Cartrige won't move


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Cup of distilled water
  • Clean wash cloth
    Fixing The Printer Cartridge
  1. Shut down the HP 6480 by pressing the "On/Off" button on the right side of the control panel. Some paper jams will clear themselves just by turning the printer off and starting it again. Wait a few minutes after the printer has shut down and then turn it on again.
  2. Remove the paper feed tray. If the printer does not clear the paper jam by itself, shut off the device again. Be sure to pull the tray out gently to avoid damaging the device.
  3. Lift up the automatic document feeder. The feeder makes up the top half of printer, and it can be opened like the hood of a car. Lift the sides of it slowly. This exposes the printer mechanism and ink cartridges. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer mechanism with both hands. Pull it gently to ensure you don't damage any components.

  4. After removing the paper, clean off the cylindrical, silver printer roller. Dampen a clean cloth with distilled water, and gently wipe any dirt, ink or paper off the roller. Rotate it when you're done cleaning one side, and continue rotating and cleaning until the roller is clean on all sides.
  5. Close the automatic printer feeder. After removing all paper, close the top printer feeder and shake it to ensure it's fastened. Re-attach the printer tray by lining it up with the arrow markers on both sides of the printer.
  6. Put one sheet of paper into the printer tray, and reset the HP 6480 by pressing and holding the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds. The printer should automatically restart and return to factory settings. It will run diagnostics and the printer cartridges should begin moving again as they print a test sheet.

Where is the cabin air filter on a Saab 9-3 Aero convertible?


Open the hood and you see the wide, black, flat plastic cover that goes all the way across just under where the windshield wiper blades are?

On the passenger side, remove the piece of rubber weatherstripping by gently pulling it out partly. Remove the black plastic screw at the passenger edge of the big black piece.
Gently pry the black foam up but hold the connecting side down with your other hand so you don't rip it off.

Lift up the big black plastic tray like piece. See the filter?

Remove the filter by lifting up the 2 clips at the top. Don't break it off. They are hinged at the top and swing up (just the opposite of the post office blue mail boxes which have the hinge below and swing open). Then take off the filter.

Wipe the area with a damp cloth to do general cleaning and then put a new filter in. Look at the arrow to fit the filter in the correct direction (it draws air forward and pulls it to the passenger compartment)

I have a Kenmore Elite top load that is leaking some water on the floor. I had this repaired before and I know the problem that time was the liquid chlorine bleach dispenser was dirty and needed cleaning....


Usually the soap tray has a black tab at the back of the soap dispenser tray , remove the tray and take a cloth with some CLR and rub the top of the slot were the tray fits into the washing machine. If you look inside you will find that there are holes in there this is were the water come through to wash the soap out, chances are that it is starting to block the holes with either calcium or soap. Hope this helps you out.

Replacing door hine on hotpoint washing machine


Its a ***** of a design. Mine is a Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62. If you cant get the backing plate then get someone to tilt the machine right back and you can put your hand under to get it out. Then take the top off the machine(3 screws at the back). Then slide your soap tray right out,(put it to one side) you will then see 4 screws (Which hold in the other tray that holds the soap tray) take these out, you will then need to remove this white plastic tray to get your hand down the machine to reach the place were the backing plate goes. Once u have taken the screws out slide the soap tray holder to the left or right (can't remember) it will then come loose. You will then need to slide it back to lift it out the way (No need to take the pipes off the back of it) you may need to push the whole drum back at the same time you are pushing back the soap holder (Be gentle but it will come out). The holder should then lift up out the way, you can now get your hand down to hold the back plate on whilst you get a helper to affix the door. Make sure backing plate is on the right way, the screws will only go in one way (Check which way b4 u put it down into place). Then go backwards on all steps to put machine back together. This sounds like a load of **** but it worked for me and took about 15 minutes. Good luck!!
