Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

My dispenser door sticks. It only comes out about 1/2 inch and then you have to keep opening and closing it that little bit until it comes open all the way. Where is it sticking and how do I fix it?

With the dispenser fully opened, reach in the tray to the retaining clip at the top above the tray. depress clip and fully remove tray. rinse tray to remove dirt and detergent, and with a toothbrush scrub away at interior guide path. use a silicone based lubricant on side rails of the dispenser tray and reinsert, open and close till problem is solved, if problem persists repeat proceedure.

Garage door will not stay closed. hit remote button when door is down to keep it closed


Assuming that you do not have anything interfering with the obstruction sensor located at the bottom/sides of the door opening, you most likely will need to adjust the "force-down" control. This control switch should be located on the power-head of your opener. An arrow should indicate direction to turn to increase the force down. You must be careful not to increase it too much or you will create a crushing danger for pets and children. Turn only a little at a time until a test keeps the door closed. You must then place an obstruction under the door (1 inch tall) to make sure it still reverses when an obstruction is met. Sometime temperature conditions will affect the correct operation of the opener and it will need readjustment.

It sounds like the actuator for your dispenser switch is sticking. To fix it you will need to get inside the dispenser housing, which involves removing the decorative front panel on the dispenser.

It's kinda tricky to get this thing apart, and it's even harder to get it put back together if you've never done it. I'd recommend calling a repairman.

How to unlock a child proof lock for a Toyota Camry?


open the door (from the outside)
keep the door open, sit down on your heels and look at the inside of the door next to the latch, (the bit you never see with the door closed) you will see a little "tag" sticking out, probably with <LOCK/UNLOCK> printed next to it, this is the child-lock.

please leave feedback good or bad

Ice dispenser appearing to get stuck in the open


The noise is probably the solenoid which operates the door or the one that switches it from cube to crushed ice. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} You'll have to look to see what's wrong.

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Here's a diagram of the dispenser which may help.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 630 1630 9400 Soap Dispenser Problem


From your description even when the soap dispenser opens it is opening late which is why all the soap does not dissolve.

Try adding only half as much soap and see if it opens then - even a little spilled soap catching on that little latch mechanism can cause it to be difficult to close and stick opening.

Also make sure that the spring that controls the door is not broken.

Fridge door pops back open


The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.

Cann't eject cassette from Canon ZR60


I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60.
The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own.
I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever.
Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps.
Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it.
I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it.
Good Luck to you.
