Typical of the Bosch help desk, the instructions given to us related to the previous years model where access was via the filter etc.

Managed to find, on a different website (sorry), a similar problem from 2005 in which you had to access the pump via the plate at the underneath the dishwasher.

Cause of all the problems - a sinle piece of popcorn that had not popped!!

How to remove center desk drawer

Some drawers have slides that have latches that have to be manually depressed simultaneously, in ordert to remove the center drawer. Look at the slides and see if there is a button, or possibly a machined strip of metal, that releases a latch that keeps the drawer from falling off the end of the slide.

How do take the front of the dryer off on Kenmore model 417.94812301

To remove the front of the dryer you must first take off the control panel It starts with 2 small screws (one each side ) just up and under the overhang on each side. Then take the two screws out of the white cover plate that is above the washer lid. The cover plate that is angled toward you. Once that cover plate is off you can remove 4 screws to remove the aluminum cover plate that hides the electrical connections. ( Which of course aren't live as you already unplugged or turned off the power to the unit). Once the aluminum cover is off you can see the dryer exhaust connection and some of the electrical connections. Remove the last two screws for the control panel ( which are now visible). Disconnect the electrical connections 2 or 3 as well as the safety override wire. (These are all plug type type connectors). Put the control panel aside. Now go to the top of the dryer and remove the 4 or 6 screws holding the lid on the dryer. Remove the lid. You now have access to the dryer drum (which is much lighter than you think and easy to remove (write ups elsewhere)). You can also remove and replace the heating element, the idler arm and the drive belts. (Hint:, before disconnecting the drive belts and idler arm draw them. They assemble backwards to the way your brain thinks after the fact).
To get to the washer is completely different. You start by removing the 2 screws at the front of the washer at floor level. Once these are out you can remove the front of the washer by pushing the panel down to release it. ( about 1/2 inch). Once the panel is off you then remove a screw under the top of the washer at the front on each side. The lid can now be removed. From there you have access to the water inlet valve, the idler arm, the drum, the motor, the drain, etc etc .

Have fun and cheers

Where is the fuel pump locted on a 99 acura tl

HI. First, you will need to remove the filler cap. This will release the pressure in the tank. Once this is done, simply, remove the rear seat. This will expose the fuel pump access panel.The access panel will be secured by three screws. Remove the screws to lift the access panel. Once the panel is lifted, the pump will be accessible.

Middle arm isn't washing, need to check for debris.

How to remove the access panels....
There are many different styles of dishwashers built today. One of these should point you in the correct area's to look for the screws that hold the access panels on the dishwasher. Remember, remove power first.
The most common configuration of the access panels used today...
This is the newer "over sized" door, looks like a one panel front, but there still is small access panels on the very bottom....
Some Asko Dishwashers....
2 Torx # 20 screws hold the toe plate on. Once toe plate is off, 2 Torx screw hold the lower panel on and the 2 brackets the hold the toe plate on have a springy locking tab, press the tab away from the bracket and the brackets will pull straight out. The service panel has 4 or 6 Torx screws holding it on, 2 are pointing up in the corners.

Motor and pump assembly screw and impellor help....

One of the most common question that I get on a dishwasher repair is "how does that motor and pump impellor screw come out?"
Inside many dishwasher pump assemblies is a screw that goes through the upper impellor and screws directly into the motor shaft. Since the motor shaft and screw are made of guessed it...they can / will rust. The screw can rust and become very tight and difficult to remove!! These screws are normally a right ( regular ) hand thread, socket or nut driver can be used to remove the screw. One hard thing to do is to hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, they often just turn together. The impellor may be jammed with a screwdriver to hold it still so the screw can be removed...sometimes the impellor can be help still by placing a rag on it and hold tight with your hand, the rag will help prevent a sharp edge on the impellor from cutting your fingers. The odd time that screw is too rusted into place, soaking a little rust buster or 3in1 oil on it over night may help loosen it. Sometimes trying to tighten the screw a little at first will help break it free. There are some tool that can be purchased to help hold the impellor stillso the screw can be removed, these are only for a few models and pump assembly styles.

Anymore questions ask.

I would like to remove the Accumulator assembly. looking for instructions on how to remove. I think something is jammed in the motor gears etc.

Thank you for the reply. This is a pretty simple procedure. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the lower wash rack and lower spray arm.

2. Remove the upper wash rack and spray arm.

3. Locate the screws holding in the upper spray feed tube. Remove the screws to the feed tube and turn the whole assembly 1/4 turn to the right (CW direction). The entire assembly will unlock from the wash pump assembly and lift out.

4. Remove the strainer assembly (known as an accumulator) that covers the pump sump area by loosening the screws around the perimeter (you may need a torx type screwdriver for this, I believe the size is a T-2).

Once the accumulator is removed, inspect the sump area for food particles and debris. You may want to additionally remove the chopper assembly cover to make sure the impeller area of the wash pump is not clogged. If you need some guidance, has some very helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you. The chopper assembly cover will be listed as item 8 under the "Pump and Motor" heading.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher seems to have gotten louder over the last month

time for a cleaning.. dont worry.. its pretty easy (but gross and probably full of broken glass)..

1) switch the breaker off at the panel
2) remove the baskets and unscrew the plastic thing holding on the bottom wash arm (remove the wash arm and check it for debris)
3) remove the top washer water feeder (there should be little clips that unclip it from the inside of the dishwasher).. and then it twists clockwise and pops out
4) you'll need a med flat head or better yet a star screwdriver set for the next part
5) unscrew the screw(s) holding down the plastic cover that covers the water pump intake inside the dishwasher.. this should expose a 'trap' at the front.. BE CAREFUL
6) start cleaning that out.. there should be everything from GLASS, to olive pits to cherry pits etc etc down there.. get it all!
7) while you're in there, there is another (delicate) cleaning task with the food grater/processor inside.. there is another screw that once removed, allows you to gain access to the food grinder.. there's probably debris in here as well.
8) once you've cleaned that out, take care to line up the grater into the right channel before you reinstall everything..
9) put everything back together, and run an empty load on hot with hot dry and it should be waayy quieter.. (and you'll be surprised at how clean the glassware is).

good luck

Mazda 5 replacing external handle on sliding door

Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.

Kitchenaid dishwasher kudp01 pump problem

holding the center nut for lack of better word and unscrewing the wash arm, the next piece will require turning clockwise while pulling up on the plastic lock tab holding to up spout for water supply, gives you access ot 5 torx screws, after that theres 2 more torx screws giving you access to the chopper/ impeller area, thats as far as youll be able to go.

Dirtlifter Powerbrush does not turn

Make the machine safe from the power source first
When you remove the belt access door you are looking at the pump belt,
To gain access to the brush belt you must turn the machine over and remove the brush at the bottom of the machine.
there are two screw in the red retainers at each side of the brush, remove the screws and the retainers and the pivot arms ,you should see the brush belt and the pump
