Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
John C

Vacuum is clogged with dog hair. How can clog be removed?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

If your Shark vacuum is clogged with dog hair there are a number of general maintenance cleaning tips you could perform to help keep your vacuum working at its peak performance.

First let's check out your brush roll. Is there dog hair wrapped around the roll itself? If so remove it by pulling out the dog hair, or use a razor if its tightly wrapped around. Manually rotate the brush roll to help unearth any hidden clogs behind the roll.

If there's dog hair throughout your unit be sure to empty the dust cup after every use. When the dust cup isn't emptied often this leads to clogs and a loss of suction.

Also, be sure to check your vacuums hose for any clogs, or clumps of dog hair. Stretch the hose out as far as you can. If you notice a clog in a hard to reach place use a broom handle to unclog it.

Your Shark vacuums filters may need to be replaced, or washed and may be a source for a lot of the dog hair in your vacuum. Wash and clean your unit's filter 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.

Poor pickup especially cat hair


If you have a bagless, you filters are clogged. There are usually several filters in a vacuum... even the dyson. Bagless clog quicker with pet hair. If you have your owner's manual, use it to find all of your filters, take them out, replace them or clean them the best you can. Put all of them back, and it should work better.

My wife was washing some throw rugs in the HE5t and one of them fell apart in the wash. Clogged up the filter and will not drain. Door is locked so I can't get inside to clean filter and washer. How do I...


hello, You should remove the lower panel at the front of the machine, behind there you will find what looks like a gas cap from a car right next to the pump, unscrew the cap making sure you have plenty of towels handy and remove the filter...empty the water out and clean the filter...re-install the filter trap and you should now be able to open the door. Don't forget to unplug the machine before servicing. Hope this helps, thanks for using fixya..good luck . Mike

Dryer isn't drying


Your dryer has some internal ductwork that can get clogged and prevent the dryer from operating efficiently. In most dryers it takes quite a bit of disassembly to get to the internal ductwork. Take out the lint filter and look into the opening with a flashlight. Clean out as much as possible with a vacuum cleaner. Also check the venting to the outside. Make sure that the vent is not clogged up and that the flap on the exhaust vent on the side of the house is not stuck closed or partially closed. I will assume that the heating element is working and that the dryer is heating up. If not, that would indicate another issue. Sure hope this helped ya and best wishes.

Filters


No filters in a top load Whirlpool. Most likely, the pump is leaking. Also check the drain hose for pin holes.

Washable filter is getting clogged with dog hair


I have a Dyson Animal Absolute and a rescue white american eskimo dog and two tabby cats.

We found white hair on top of the washable filter and called Dyson to fix it. There shouldn't be anything on that filter.

The Dyson rep said:

Check the black rubber seal that surrounds the "cyclone" holes as it may need to be pushed down because it isn't sealing properly.

To do this remove the cannister and dump out the stuff in there. Do it outside so the fluff doesn't circulate in the house.

Turn the entire filter part upside down so you can see inside.

Check the seal that is at the bottom of the entire filter part and look at the two half moon "nozzles" that **** up the dirt.. now make sure the black rubber band that surrounds those two nozzles is either up or down... do this then vacuum a bit.. check the washable filter to see if it is clean...make sure the rubber seal actually is sealing.. it should just set into place once you have it done properly.

Now if this doesn't fix it, call Dyson, the number is printed on the front of the machine.. and give them your serial number which is located behind the removable cannister. The machine has a 5 year warranty.

Is there a filter and how/do I need to clean it?


most washing machines have a lint trap that is easy to find. I don't know this model, but open the lid and find where the recirculating water falls out from a hose or plastic tray above the wash tub. somewhere below this point, in the path of the falling water, is a lint trap. remove it and clean it
