Face of the drier

When you say the face of the drier, do you mean the actual front cover with access cover? I thought it would be easier to access everything from the rear? Thanks in advance

    Thanks for clearing that up. Do I need to brace the drum when taking off the front cover? Thanks.

  • DSLG Apr 28, 2008

    My drier has intermittenly been working (drum will not spin and you can hear the motor humming). I was going to take off the cover and inspect the belt and motor. Any suggestions?

  • DSLG Apr 28, 2008

    Thanks for the tip. I have a long arm grabber that I have used to pull lint out of the filter holder area but I have never seen anything substantial down there. I guess I will have to take the cover off. Thanks again.

No, there is no access panel in the rear of the dryer.  Everything comes off from the top or the front.

    No, the cover will come off without the drum falling out.  There is a front support for the dryer that holds the drum in place.  When you take the support off, the drum will come loose but won't fall out of the dryer.  What are you trying to do??

  • Richard Lew Apr 28, 2008

    You may have something stuck in the blower fan that is preventing the motor from turning.  Remove the filter screen and look down in the filter holder area.  See if you can see something jammed down there by the blower.  If there is, try to pull it out.  If it doesn't come out easily, you may have to remove the front cover to get to it.

Remove dash to access the gauges for cleaning faces

You just have to figure out how to remove everything necessary from the front of the dash, so you can actually get at the gauges.

It's just the trim piece first, plastic clips or screws. Now remember,if you were trying to remove the dash cluster, it would come out just the same way. You just need to get to it, not remove it. t should be pretty easy to figure out. Phillips head and/or 1/4 inch head sockets for screws and small bolts. Some are 5/16ths.

This guy said he changed my waterpump but can't get the cover off to change the timing chain. I thought you had to have the cover off in order to do this...

No, the cover of the timing chain is different from water pump. Belt is used to operate the water pump.
Hope that clears everything!

Not much access to the spark plugs

depends upon what vehicle your dealing with, if it`s a rear wheel drive V6-V8 vehicles, usualy you can get to them easier thru the wheel well. Front wheel drive V6-V8 vehicles are easy for front of vehicle access, and under vehicle access to get at the ones facing towards the rear of the vehicle.

How do I actually get to the circuit board on dishwasher

Undo the top two screws on each side of the back of the door and all the ones across the top edge. Then the panel can be manouvered away from the door. The catch mechanism tends to hold the panel back and there is only just enough free length on the wiring to pull the panel away a couple of inches, but it's enough to access the on/off switch and control module.

How do i fit a drive belt on a hotpoint tumble drier

Hi, To fit the belt to your dryer you will need to remove the top of the appliance by removing the screws at the rear. Pull of the timer/control knob. Look inside the top of the t/dryer behind the control panel you will see little plastic stems which are attached to the facia panel. You need to knock these out to remove the facia. Once this is off then you can remove the the top 3 screws and the bottom 3 screws the front panel will now come off for you to place the belt on the drum and over the motor spindle. Becareful as the t/dryer will be very loose and will twist. it is easier to lay the appilance down on its back to stop everything falling about. Now you can put it back together in the reverse order....
Good luck.............

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt

Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!

How easy to access the 3 screws?

Underneath. Don't see original post here, but to replace a pump (actually, just the pump motor) on an LG front load washer: Drain water out of small hose inside recess and remove access door cover (at lower left of machine). Remove one phillips head screw and use a plastic putty knife or similar tool to push in on left or right side of recess to remove the plastic recess cup. Now remove the two other phillips head screws visible. Tilt machine back and access pump Assembly from under machine. There is a tab that you will have to work loose. Disconnect electrical wires from pump at disconnect plug. You probably want to remove the hoses going to and away from the pump (squeeze clamps). Pump motor is easy to change out now with three more phillips head screws.

Removing air filter for Buick Century 2000

Simple, you don't! Remove the passenger's side front tire and there is a little door from which you access the battery.
Actually, you do need to remove it. You can't access the terminal posts or the tie-down bracket from the access door. The good news is the process is straightforward, and you don't need to remove the tire.
First, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. From here you can remove the six screws holding in the battery access panel.
Next, open the hood, unclip the air filter housing and remove the filter. It helps to get the cover up and out of the way by using a spare piece of wire and attaching it to the hood.
Now, you're ready to remove the air filter housing. On the right side of the housing (facing the car) you'll notice a fastener with no apparent means of removal. This is a friction grommet, akin to the snaps on a baby's shirt. Grip the housing right above this fastener and give it a firm pull upwards. The housing should pop out over the fastener. The left side is not fastened - there are two "bumpers" that hold it in place on that side.
Now you have complete access to the battery and can proceed with the replacement, sliding the battery out through the access door once it's been disconnected.
Finally, it's much easier to re-install the battery access door from the top, before re-installing the air filter housing. It's possible, but not easy from down below.
