Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I think this should help and be just what you need to get to that piece of glass and remove the spray arm so you do not have to call a technician...and maybe more.


You`ll need to follow these steps to access and clean it. (The key with the spray arm nut is to hold it while you spin the spray arm, not the nut...provided it is a KUDS02 series dishwasher as stated).

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) liftA glass broke and pieces of glass fell inside of - 87fb0d6.jpg the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.

4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out. This should allow you to remove the broken glass.


If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

My dear wife took the lid handle off our breville gourmet wok. The pieces include a screw, a spring and 3 other parts. Im not sure if i put it together properly. Could you help out. Thanks


This is for assembling the Breville Wok lid. This has a built in vent that lets steam escape during cooking. There are 8 pieces not including the glass cover: bolt, metal vent, black O ring, tan round plastic piece, black lid piece (has open/close) on it, spring, clear plastic seal, lid handle.
Order of assembly as follows, starting on inside of glass cover.1. Bolt.2. Metal vent piece sits on top of bolt.3. Black O ring fits snuggly onto of vent piece.Insert what you have assembled against inside of glass cover, bolt poking through topside of glass.4. Add tan plastic piece with 3 prongs going facedown against the glass hole of cover.5. Larger black lid piece goes next. You will need to line up the openings on tan piece and this lid piece so that it sits semi-flush against glass. When complete this piece will turn in place to open/close vent (less than 1/4 turn before stopping).6. Add clear plastic seal to underside of handle.7. Place spring between handle and top of black lid piece and screw together until snug.
Test lid by turning lid piece. It should move back and forth according to the open/close print on top. If no luck, go to step 5 and try again. It is a little tricky, but does work when done correctly.

The plastic piece inside the dryer (about 18"


If you are referring to the "fins", there are 3 of them that tumble the clothes, you can refer to some previous questions. You will need to remove the top first and then tighten them up. I have to replace one of my "fins" because it broke off inside of the dryer.

When checking out the lid switch on my roper washer as jsrock suggested in another post, i heard a screw drop from the inside of that area which caused the lid switch to become unmounted completely. also,...


Top lid pull up. Look in seam between top and front cover. On each side you will see where top clips to front cover. Put a screwdriver in there and lightly pry up till clip releases. Front cover will now pull up and be removed, so you could get what fell in.

I'm so convinced I've lost a part perhaps someone can tell me I'm wrong . The part is a collar/washer that sits on the back of the s.steel strainer that you remove during cleaning of the brew unit .So...


HI
There is a piece under the strainer, but you don't need it if you remember that the plastic bolt is called a thumb screw. When you tighten the thumb screw, you do it finger tight and you won't have any problems. The strainer just needs to be flush with the brew head so nothing will get under it. If you can't feel the edge of the strainer when you slide your finger across the brew head it is plenty tight. The piece you lost is to prevent people from over tightening the thumb screw with the wrench which you are not suppose to use to tighten the thumb screw.

Bosch dishwasher wont drain. At end of cycle is full of cloudy water.


It is possible if you have broken a glass recently that the piece of glass has made its way to the drain pump impeller. You need to remove bottom basket. Remove the filter strainer clamp by rotating CCW. There may be another round filter under the strainer (depending on model). Then with a torque screwdriver remove one screw which holds the plastic pump cover on. Remove the pump cover and pay close attention to the pump impeller. Does it rotate by finger movement? If not it could be jamed with a piece of broken glass. You must remove any obstruction to allow the impeller to turn. I usually force a paper towel piece (half piece while rotating the impeller by finger to allow the paper towel to bring up any obstruction below the impeller) Reassemble the cover and filters carefully and make sure the final strainer clamp aligns correctly with its marks. This insures nothing will make its way to the impeller in future.

How to clean the inside of the glass door of Electrolux Wall Oven


I scoured the internet trying to find how to clean inside the glass of my Electolux Icon double wall ovens. Short of "The Big Q-tip" method (which only made a smeared mess) I didn't find anything. So I went ahead and started taking the doors apart. I'm happy to report I just finished with fantastic results. So I'm going to do a step by step, I know I would have appreciated reading instructions for it. It's very easy but time consuming. You'll need a large work area because there are actually 4 sheets of glass, a Philips screwdriver, and a straight razor with handle.

Refer to your manual on how to take the doors off - but it's very easy. Simply open the door, flip the locks toward you and pull up and out at the same time. Be careful...the door is very heavy.

Lay door on blanket or towel, especially if it's stainless steel. There are 4 screws along each side of the door. The 2 screws that hold the hinge at the bottom are smaller than the 2 closer to the top.

On the very bottom there are two more screws to hold the bottom outer frame. Under that piece are 2 more screws that hold the inner bottom frame. That's it. Slide out the hinges and you're ready to go.

Remove those 2 frame pieces and keep in mind how they fit back together. Remove the top piece of glass and put on another towel. Now I'm not sure if it matters but I was mindful of the side of each piece of glass as I remove and cleaned them to make sure they went back exactly as they came out.

The first piece is going to be the most time consuming to clean. One took me over an hour. The grease is hard to get off because it just spreads around. I found a straight razor really sped this along, just make sure you always use the razor on wet glass or you'll scratch the glass. It's fiddly...just keep at it. I also used mineral spirits to help degrease. When done I laid this on the dining table.

The next 2 pieces of glass are in a frame that comes out together. The frame is only on the sides so be careful it doesn't come apart on you when carrying it. Inside the frame piece is a rubber gasket to separate the 2 pieces of glass. Watch how the frame comes off, there is a wide and a narrow side. It's easier to take off the frame piece and simply lift of the first piece of glass. The bottom piece of glass sits in a channel of the rubber gasket.

Pretty simple. Lots of elbow grease if you cook a lot. Reverse the order to reassemble. One thing to note - on the door sides near the top, you'll see a silver metal piece inside the black frame. Make sure the screw holes are visible thru the black frame. I have very small fingers so it was easy to do it with my fingers but I would imagine someone with large hands will have some difficulty. Also, when screwing the hinge in place I had to twist the hinge so the screw hold was up against the black frame. The screws are so short that they'll just spin without catching if you don't.

Happy cleaning!

Replace JED8430ADB Ceramic Glass


First, you have to pull out the cooktop from the counter and remove the knobs.
Next, there are hex screws around the perimeter - do not remove the lowest ones on the front and the back (they hold the tray that the burners sit in) or the ones on the bottom (they help to hold on the blower assembly).
The final trick are two screws that are located in the downdraft plenum - there's one on each side (you don't have to remove the two in the back or the front - those are for small covers only).
The glass should lift out.
When putting the new glass in, remember that the plenum walls fit on the inside of the glass (you won't see the top of the steel).
