I would start troubleshooting your problem by turning my attention to the safety mechanisms designed to keep people from getting cleaned by their washers:

  1. Review the action of the latching mechanism for 'locking' the door closed. If the latch is not engaged, the machine will not start.
  2. There is also a secondary safety switch that confirms for the dishwashers brain that the door is securely closed. Check it's action, clean it, confirm it is not damaged and is working.
There are more things that can go wrong with an electronic dishwasher
than the latch and the safety switch, but those are great places to start!

I hope that helps.

Hi,

If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn’t run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch.

To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch’s strike slightly, using a screwdriver (turn off the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel first).

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Dc4 has low suction


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Low suction from your Dyson DC07 can be directly related to basic vacuum upkeep and maintenance. Here's some simple things you can do for your vacuum to help ensure optimal performance and to keep your vacuum running for a long time with great suction.

After every use, make sure to empty your Dyson's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged.

Wash and clean your unit's filter screen weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours. Be sure to allow it to FULLY dry.

Foam and cloth filters should also be washed and dried weekly, by following the same steps from cleaning the filter screen. Do not use any soap, dishwasher, dryer or washing machine to do so. Allow your filters to air dry for 24 hours before re-installing them in your Dyson.

Last, make sure to clear your brush roll of any hair strands or debris monthly and to replace at least every year. When examining your brush roll take note of the condition of the bristles. Are they loose? If so this would be a good time to change your brush roll.

While checking the brush roll you might as well examine your Dyson's belt. With use the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. So if your belt feels loose as well replace that.

All of the previous general maintenance tips will help improve your vacuums suction and overall performance.

How to order / replace motor exhaust foam filter?


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Maintaining your unit's filter clean and clog-free is crucial in keeping your unit working properly. Your Dyson DC39 has a washable and reusable pre-filter, part number 923413-01.

Washable filters are recommended to be washed after every 1 or 2 uses and replaced every 3 to 6 months, depending on the use of your unit.

First, make sure your unit is 'off' and unplugged. Remove the dust bin by pushing the button next to your unit's handle and remove the filter from the bin. Wash your filter under running lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Allow your filter to air dry for 24 hours before placing it back into your unit. Do not use any soaps or detergents and only dry your filter naturally. Placing your unit in a dishwasher and/or dryer may damage the filter.

Having a spare filter is a great idea to have while washing the unit's filter.

Where to find WA80V3 control panel


Even if you do replace the panel you still need to get rid of the cockroaches because it will keep on happening. Since the panel may be hard to find I see no other alternative then to replace it with what they suggest. I see no other option except for getting rid of your washing machine and buying a new one, so for the $60 they want to fix it seems well worth it.

Good luck,

Marty

How often do I wash filter for dyson dc33 upright vacuum cleaner


Hi Mary,

In normal use, you should wash the filters in your DC33 at least once every 3 months. Use cold water without detergent - do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine. Allow at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine - it may help to place them somewhere warm, such as by a radiator.

For step-by-step guidance on maintaining the filters, please see our online Support guide:

With microwave door shut oven continues to run


The door switch when closed seems to give a feedback to the processor which is triggering continuosly the circuit.
Please check on the board for insect secretion or dirt that seems to RUN the board when the door is shut.
Wash the board and replace, check the connectors to be tight and test.
if not there are errors in the board/ control panel which could be stuck with the start button in ON state. remove panel to confirm.

Dyson animal is giving me fits


Hi,

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it. The suction problem is happening because when the machine is put in the upright position it diverts the suction from the floor to the hose automatically, and it's probably stuck in between the lower part and the hose part.

Step 1.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.

Step 2.
  • Hold the section under the airway inspection pipe.
  • The black forward lock button must be held down simultaneously, otherwise the valve carriage will not move.
  • Pivot this section upwards until it clicks into place.
  • Release the black button once the valve pipe carriage is moved up into place.

    Step 3.

    • Tilt the machine forward.
    • The cleaner head should now slide underneath the part you have just clicked into place.
    • The machine should now stand upright.

    In terms of the machine not picking up, this could be caused by a few things.

    The first thing you should check is the filter. The DC14 has a motor filter that is recommended to be washed every 90 days. Here's how to access this filter:

    • To remove the washable filter: Remove the clear bin; and cyclone top from your machine by pressing the cyclone release button.
    dc14_cyclone_removal_01.gif
    • Lift clip to remove the filter from the machine.*
    dc14_filter_removal_01.gif dc14_filter_removal_02.gif
    *The post-motor filter located under the clear bin should last the lifetime of the machine and does not need to be washed.

    There are two different types of filters that were used on the Dyson DC14, and One part filter, and a two part filter. Here's instructions on how to clean both of them:

    ONE PART FILTER:
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.giffilter_1.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. (Please do not use detergent, do not wash in a dishwasher or washing machine).
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    filter_wash.gif filter_clean_squeeze.gif

    • Leave to dry in a warm place for 24 hours. DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    • Please ensure the filter and filter case are completely dry before refitting into the machine.
    1_part_filter_drying.jpg TWO PART FILTER:
    filter_2.jpg
    • Wash the filter in cold water only. Please DO NOT use detergent on the filter, or wash the filter in a dishwasher or in a washing machine.
    • Repeat the steps shown below until the water runs clear.
    • Leave the filter to dry in a warm place for 12 hours, until completely dry.
    • DO NOT dry the filter inside a clothing dryer, hair dryer, microwave the filter, place the filter in an oven, or near a naked flame.
    dc14_filter_01.gif dc14_filter_05.gif dc14_filter_06.gif
    The filter should be washed at least once every 6 months.

    Also, since you have removed the bottom plate, a common problem on the Dyson's is when this plate is reinstalled. It is very easy to put the plate on incorrectly, which prevents the brushes from hitting the carpeting. This can seriously decrease the pick up on carpets. Check the bottom plate to make sure that it was put back on properly. Here's pictures of both the correct, and incorrect way to reinstall the bottom plate:

    Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:


    9739790.jpg
    Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:


    8b953d0.jpg
    I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.

    The suction on my eureka optima stopped working but the roller still works, what might i do to fix it?


    Hi there. Most suction problems are due to a blockage. Start with the base and look carefully for debris that is stopping air flow. You may have to remove the base plate to get to the problem. I am including a link to the manual for your machine. look on page four so see how to remove the base and check for blocked airways. http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/75287_eng.pdf
