The only place lint will collect is right now by the blower wheel, there should be 2 screws that go up and into the lid on the top of the door opening, take those long screws out take the top off and there are 2 more screws facing towards the front of the dryer on the top 2 corners of the front those are phillips also, take those out and the entire front panel assembly will pop off, there will be a couple wires attached at the bottom for the door switch assembly, and the drum also rides on this front so it will be laying on the front, and there are 2 hinge like hooks at the bottom that the front panel sits on you will have to lift it up before the bottom will come off. If you need further assistance, let me know.

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


Hi.

You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

My maytag dryer takes almost 2 hours to dry 1 load of laundry


I would try cleaning out the dryer lent from the exhaust duct from the dryer and also the duct to the outside of the house. Lint also collects inside the dryer. It may worth cleaning out behind the lint filer through to the exhaust duct.

My lg dehumidifier is collecting ice on top and no water is collecting in waste. Is it dead? this is a new problem but machine is not old


Sounds as if the air filter may be clogged, which causes the coils to freeze. Unplug the unit and allow it to thaw. Once thawed, follow the Owners Manual"s instructions on accessing, removal and cleaning of the air filter. That should solve your problem.

I HAVE A KENMORE 400 SERIES DRYER. THE LENT NO LONGER STICKS TO THE FILTER. WHEN I PULL THE FILTER OUT TO CLEAN IT, THE LENT SLIDES OFF THE FILTER CONTINUALLY CLOGGING THE VENT IN THE BACK OF THE DRYER....


Try cleaning the filter to remove any residue from dryer sheets (a dish detergent solution should cut the softener build-up). Be as gentle as possible. An old toothbrush is useful for this.

Also, a weak exhaust flow may be the culprit. Check the dryer vent line all the way outside for excess lint.

Your fan impeller (inside the dryer) may be loaded with lint, too.

First begin by pulling away from wall. Unplug and begin by checking for 240 coming from outlet. We will need a multimeter to check ohms and test points along the way. Most times people do not answer so I will leave some information and will pick up on your case when you respond. Fact is I had a service call on one like yours. The lint filter had a hole that allowed lint to collect in the exhaust to the point that moisture collected in the lent blocking ventilation. I know you said you checked yours, but we need to find where the power stops, door switch, thermal overload, etc. Those dryers are a trick to open, I will be around later if you would like my assistance, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dishwasher won't drain


I rethought your problem and will provide a generic answer that is common to your brand of DW....

GE dishwashers will have a sump entrance screen ( #4 ) that should be removed and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which is behind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separate drain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the most common GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drain solenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stop the draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain port will not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. The solenoid can be ohmed with an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GE dishwashers have a self clean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back. The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body. This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow the draining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and the plunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstacle for the draining water in the back flush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twist or distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to be accessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the self clean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drain hose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked for restrictions.


Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....

During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled water falls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes through the filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( we hope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into the collection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump out mode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closes the piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collection chamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve is located in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the drain direction only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drain line check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve in the collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out is complete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into the tub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

Here is a link for you to check out...I have all this info in my data base but since it is in PDF format it does not translate well to this format...

Samsung U700 disassembly problem


Remove the large white identification label from the rear of the slide and you will find 6 small screws. Once these have been removed you can seperate the the slide and access the flex cable connector. The service manual for the SGH-U600 which shows full disassembly instuctions can be found here.

Hi Marcia.

You are correct in thinking the machine has A thermal cut out.

I think your problem is caused by one of the following.

1) The filters need cleaning or replacing, Not just the top filter Premotor sponge washable but check the filter directly under waste bin The premotor.

2) Check the 2 inspection ports for partial blockages there is one at the front left hand side & one at the bottom back of machine.

3) Check & clean vortex unit remove clear bin to do this.

4) remove flexi long hose it unclips at the rear bottom of machine & pull out metal wand check them for any blockages.

5) If you have access to an air line when you have postmotor filter out blow in to the oppening under the plastic plate with 2 screws and holes in it this will blow out the fine dust that collects around motor, ( dont do this part indoors you will have black dust every where.

If you need more help contact me.

Chris..
