SOURCE: whirlpool washer door won't secure

Do you mean that the door won't lock, or that it locks, but requires an extra push and hold to make things work. If the latter, find the finger in the door area that trips the interlock switch and extend it's length slightly with hot glue or epoxy a small piece of wood or some such.

What causes start/pause button to work sporadically?


It sounds like the switch is getting bad, contacts in the switch no doubt have burned spots and it is hard to get a connection through burned spots. So I would say replacing the switch is in order.

A button and right direction on d-pad on ds lite starting not to respond


You've probably either damaged the contacts, or the contacts have gotten dirty. You can always try blowing, but your best bet is to clean them. Follow one of the guides for taking it apart.

My dyson dc14 all floors won't stay on when I press the power button. I can hold it down and it will work, but that makes cleaning very slow.


Quick Fix...takes 4 minutes max

Remove the switch by using instructions here:

http://www.sparesaver.com/vacuum-spares/help-and-support/dyson-section/dyson-technical-advice-450/dyson-dc14-technical-advice-474/replacing-the-cable.html

(The was an additional torx screw 3 " below the one in the directions...yours may have this too...just remove)

Then...While holding the body of the switch in one hand, use your other to hold both contacts between your thumb and forefinger and gently place pressure on each contact in the opposite direction, just like screwing a nut onto a bolt. Press the switch down while applying this torque and see if it sticks. If it does just bend the contacts slightly and continue pressing the switch to ensure it holds. Reinstall switch.

I still advise buying a switch from amazon for $4.00 and replacing it but this will help you to continue to use your vacuum in the meantime without having to hold the button...

Stop working. brush was cloged. It there a reset button?


i had a similar thing happen and just got off the phone with dyson. there is a resettable switch on the handle. they told me to start the vacuum in the upright position, put it in the non upright position, then push and hold in the beater bar switch which is located next to the on/off button for 10 seconds and the beater bar should start to function once again
