  • Anonymous Mar 19, 2008

    a few hours after doing a wash, the machine (a Hotpoint First Edition 1200) starts to fill up very slowly with dirty water and after checking everything else and cleaning out all the waste pipes I decided to clean out the filter but can't seem to find it! Is there one? we live in an upstairs flat and have spoken to neighbours downstairs who are not experiencing any problems with waste water which makes me think it may be the washing machine. any ideas?

You mean the filter inside the machine(tub) or the one that's inline with the inlet hoses?

In most machines the filter is located under the panel in the bottom of the machine (the panel under the front door).
If u have manual refer; pull the panel out and you will find the filter there.

Before you open the filter keep a bowl & cloth to collect much water.

What does F02 code on duet washer mean?


Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out.
With the filter out clean and install it back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back, it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.

My dryer had a horrible smell when in use, had the lint filter cleaned by a repair man and now it throws it's breaker when not in use. What is going on?


The repair man should have done a safety check. Call a different one. Clean your filter after each load.

You probably have debris clogged in the impeller. The pump has to be opened to clean or repair the impeller.

How do I clean the filter of the Hitachi CP-X1200 multimedia Projector ?


Remove and use fine bristle brushes assisted with a jet of air which will clean up the fine netting of the filter. It is important that the filters are occassionally cleaned so that there is no dirt accumulation within the lens unit that can reduce the life of the LAMP and save an expensive repair.

Maybe I could replace the belts and brush, but there seem to be too many places to go into to repair a suction problem. I need a repair shop for Hoover Wind Tunnel.


The belt and brush have nothing to do with the suction. The impeller on the motor creates negative pressure which results in a vacuum. ( or suction ) Many newer vacuums have as many as 4 filters. if any become completely clogged, the performance drops to nil. Start at the debris exit and work backwards. As a bagless, pulling the dirt canister out and removing the main filter is a good start. Most filters can be "tapped" clean and some are washable. after pulling out the filter, look where the passage way enters the filter chamber. Is it clogged? There is usually a secondary filter, which actually is set in a previous stage to the filter you just pulled out. Its main purpose if to catch hair, small nails, wire, and other material that could damage the more visible filter. If this filter is clogged then that will explain the loss of suction. Pull it out and clean it. An exhaust filter is located typically above the motor. Its purpose is to prevent fine particles from being blown about. It should be cleaned as well. With the filters clean and the hoses and passage ways clear, you should be good to go.
Good Luck!

Air filter need service and tv shuts off after 1 min. I have attempted to clean all the dust from the tv by removing the rear cover and using shop air to clean. I am wondering wether this is going to be...


I have the same problem with my 50" panasonic PT-50LCX64 tv. I have a call into a technician to see if it is going to be a cost effective repair, I am very unhappy with their technical support. I also have removed the bace and cleaned everything back there and blew it out. Their techs. say it is an internal filter that has to be cleaned by a service center or dealer. They will not say where the filter is at so I can clean it myself.

How to set it to high, med or low


Grease filters can be cleaned, according to your manual.

If you've misplaced yours, it's online here.

Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned and must be repaired.

From the manual:

Reusable Grease Filters
The reusable grease filters should be cleaned at
least once a month. Never operate the
microwave without the filters in place. In
situations where flaming might occur on
surfaces below the hood, filters will stop the
entry of flames into the unit.

To Remove Grease Filter
To remove grease filter, grasp the “finger hold”
on the filter and slide to the rear. Then pull filter
downward and to the front. The filter will drop
out.

To clean Grease Filter
To clean grease filters, soak and then agitate
filter in solution of hot water and detergent. Do
not use ammonia or ammonia products because
they will darken the metal. Light brushing can
be used to remove embedded dirt. Rinse, shake
and remove moisture before replacing.

To Replace Grease Filter
To replace grease filter, slide the filter in the
frame slot on the back of the opening. Pull filter
upward and to the front to lock into place.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
