Hello. Those tangs will need to be bent to recreate the snug fit you had before. You may have to experiment a wee bit to find the tool that will best allow you to bend then. I usually have success with an ice pick or a small pair of long needle nosed pliers. J.

How do you remove the front plastic front piece to clean the "grille" behind the filter?


Has to come off somehow. Maybe there are clips holding it in place. Was put together by man so it can be taken apart.

I have a hotpoint wma58. please can you tell me where the lint trap is located. thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP ANY WATER BEFORE DOING ANYTHING!

Although I don't know your particular washer, the lint trap/filter is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel. This panel is probably held in by a couple of plastic screws which turn 90 degrees anticlockwise to release. The filter is normally held in by a round cover/knob which should be turned anticlockwise to release. THIS IS WHEN WATER MAY APPEAR!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.

Good luck!

My dryer is not drying very well, we beleive it may be because we need to clean the lint tray. where is the lint tray and how do you remove it


On this model your lint filter is in the middle of the door. Simply ope the door and unsnap the plastic grill. The filter is behind it. Also the venting from the rear of the dryer to wherever it ends up outside needs to be cleaned.

I want to take my ecoquest fresh air apart to clean it, but do not know how, i have misplaced the manual


Unplug the machine and unscrew the phillips head screw on the back grill of the machine, that is just above the plug. There are depressions on the sides of the back grill that has a plastic tang that hold the back grill to the machine. Press the back grill inwards to allow the tangs to clear the sidee and the back grill should now be easily removed. Remove the two thumb screws on the top corners to remove the filter. Once the filter is removed, then you can remove the purification plate and remove the two screws that hold the RCI cell. The RCI cell and filter can be cleaned by vacumming out the dust and dirt.

The purification plate can be cleaned with a old toothbrush and a water and amonia solution. Scrub the metal grid with the toothbrush. Do both sides and then rinse with water, allow it to dry completely before reinstalling the plate. After every part is cleaned reassemble the purifier, and plug it in. Then press the reset reminder button on the front of the keypad to clear the "perform cleaning" message. This message will appear again after the purifier runs for 30 days to remind you to clean the purifier. Hope this helps you.

Light won't go on; Model MMV1153WB-O


You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Enter it as MMV1153WB0 (no dash, zero on the end, not "oh")

Or just get it here, to be more exact.
On page 4, it says:

"Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
■ Grease filter: Grease filter is on the underside of microwave
oven. Clean monthly. Slide the filter away from the tab area,
and drop out the filter. To reinstall, place end of the filter into
the opening opposite the tab area, swing up the other end,
and slide it toward the tab area.
■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months.
Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it
out, and remove filter. To reinstall, place the filter into its slotted
area – wire mesh side up, replace vent grille, and secure with
screws.
■ Cooktop light(s): The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on
the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable.
Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace
bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw.
■ Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille,
tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
with screws."

HINT: Unplug the oven before removing or installing the bulbs, or you may need this service.

Need to clean fillter on hotpoint wf000


The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. In side is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats in side. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Would be good to check out the pump too.

Lint pile up


Hello Lintjammed ( I like the name).. You may be able to add a skinny tube to your vaccuum cleaner to get down in that area.. Most hardware stores sell clear tubing by the linear foot and it is not very expensive or you may be able to salvage a piece of old garden hose to make that extension tube.. It has to be skinny enough to fit into the open area where your filter resides.. I have used tubing and some duct tape or electrical tape to transition the bigger vac line to the smaller tubing.. Hope this helps you..

Remove the water filter


Yes if it is the filter that is located where the bottom grill is..... It rotates 1/4 trun counter clockwise. If you cant seem to break it loose try removing the grill by pulling it towards you (it clips on) take not of the tabs on the grill and the clips on either side of the fridge. Now you can get a better grip. Also its a good time to look and see how dirty coil is under refrig.

Air filter


If the bucket is removed, the filter is accessible from just behind the lower edge of the grill...there should be two tabs that you can use to pull it down from behind the grill...they sometimes have clear blue tape holding the filter in, so remove the tape or pull hard and the filter should drop down for cleaning.

How to locate and clean the lint trap


Top load washing machines do have lint filters, they used older models have trays that sit on top of the agitator. Newer ones aren't as obvious and are attached to the bottom of the inner tub. If you remove the agitator, you'll see a bunch of holes in the bottom of the tub, the filter right behind these holes. Cleaning/replacing it involves removing the inner tub, so it's not an easy task. It is likely that by the time you're having problems with the filter, it will be beyond cleaning and will need to be replaced. Considering all the trouble it takes to get to, you might as well.
