Why wont the top[ drawer on my Kenmore elite dishwasher open all the way ?

Is that the one with the high-quality slides with ball-bearing glides? If so, then you probably have to replace the bad glide assembly. If it's the kind with the plastic rack adjusters with the plastic wheels, then 1 of the wheel hubs has probably broken, and you would need to replace the adjuster. Probably should order 2, because the other side will probably break too.

How to install correctronic ribbon

Open top cover, small correction tape orange or yellow lift off is kind of tricky, left side goes on small spool holder feeding off the top and going around front of print wheel. by the way relaase the printwheel so it pivots back toward you, eaiser to see, correct tape goes in front of wheel and pivots very similar to left side. Correction tape has good side and bad side good side a matte finish should face away from you, this is the correction. Regular riboon just lifts up reom the front and snaps back in place. two little plastic tabs on back of ribbon case fits in two little holes in carrier. Hop this helps real hard to describe.just works...

I want to change the door seal on a w970 how do i open the front to access the seal, and any other problem that i may come across ?


There is a very useful video here that demonstrates the process for changing the seal on a front loading machine. Additional instructions for Miele are also included.

Click here to view and then click play to see video tutorial

As to the process for replacement door seals - this is generally the same for all Miele frontloaders and the instructions I have included below are generic for Miele and should also apply to your model;

1. Open the machine door.
2. Turn the main power off and unplug the machine from the wall.
3. Completely remove the powder dispenser drawer. There is a small button at the rear of the dispenser which you need to depress to remove it fully. Once you have withdrawn the drawer to its stop position you should see it.
4. Undo and remove the 3 x hexagonal head bolts surrounding the door seal. Note these bolts actually secure the front panel to the machine chassis. They do not retain the door seal.

5. Now look inside the powder dispenser drawer where you removed the actual drawer earlier. In the lower left hand corner you should see a recessed philips head screw. Undo and remove that screw.
6. Locate the underside of the front panel right at the bottom. About an inch or so in from the left hand edge you should see a spring loaded clip which located within a slot on the underside of the front panel. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, you need to carefully lever the spring clip open whilst gently pulling the whole front panel from the left side. It should pop out for you.

7. Open the pump access door lower on the left hand side of the front panel and unclip the drain tube from its plastic retaining clip.
8. Now carefully swing open the whole front panel. It is hinged on the right hand side.

9. Unseat the rubber door seal from around the door opening area so that the seal falls inside the machine.
10. There is a thin steel band holding the door seal in place around the drum. On the right hand side there is a tensioning screw for the band. With a flat bladed screwdriver undo this completely and remove the screw Retain this as you will need it later.

11. Extend the steel band and remove it.

12. Remove the old seal completely.
13. Reassembly is the reverse of removal. Ensure you have fitted the new seal correctly back. There is a lip on the seal and this has to go over the lip on the drum. Remember, the seal goes on the outside of the drum. Ensure the 'tag' is at the 12 o'clock position.

Thanks for using FixYa. Please do leave a vote for the solution.

How to completely clean the Crisper drawer

I don't know if you've already figured out how to remove the front panel on your refrigerator crisper bin, but here it is. Once the drawer is removed, pull back those clips on the top left & right of the front of the drawer.Just hold the side and pull back at the same time, then you can remove it. Once both side have been released you should be able to remove the clear plastic front and clean both pieces. I hope that is clear enough. Best of luck, unless of course you've already discovered the answer yourself.

My Zanussi ZWF1430W won't take fabric conditioner from drawer - it washes and spins okay on all programmes.

Sometimes the drawer gets blocked with congealed fabric conditioner and or old soap powder, try removing the drawer and giving it a good wash. An old toothbrush is useful to get in the small areas. To remove the drawer: Pull the drawer out as far as possible, there is a small depression on the left hand side at the top of the drawer, about the size of a fingertip press the depression to release the drawer, and pull the drawer out. To relocate, line the drawer up, and place the long thin piece of plastic on the left hand side in the corresponding slot in the top of the drawer opening, you might have to kneel down to see it and slide the drawer in, you might have to press the depression again to pushe it home.

CASIO TE2200 Error E010 while drawer is closed

This type of problem is normally caused by a switch. When the drawer opens, the switch closes and the machine goes into 'drawer open' mode to prevent another transaction. The switch or the switch activator has probably failed.

Remove the entire drawer assembly, meaning everything that comes out when the drawer is opened. Use a flashlight and look at the inside rear of the drawer opening to see if you can see the switch. It may be a lever or a button and it may be in line withe the drawer or in may be off to one side. When it is located, try to press on the button or lever. If you can and the machine goes back to 'normal mode' the problem will be identified and you will know that the switch is good. Now you need to locate what actuates the switch to see why it is not making contact. Look on the part of the drawer that should come in contact with the switch. If a small, thin piece of plastic has broken off, tape a small piece of a hard substance in that area. Close the drawer to see if the 'open' message goes away. If id does not, try a thicker piece. Repeat until the 'open' message goes away. When that happens, glue the last piece in place.

If the 'open' message does not go away when the button or lever is press, it indicates that the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. Most of these switches make contact when the button or lever are not pressed. In the short term you could locate the switch and disconnect one wire. That would simulate the button being pressed. You would just need to remember to not start another transaction until the drawer is closed.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out.

Soap dispenser stuck on LG WM2277HW

Great advice. I used a portion of you plan. Pulled off the top, but since the softener cup is on the right, I only uncliped the 3 clips on that side of the assembly. With those loose, I could pry gently up on the back portion of the assembly lid, and the drawer pulled out.

I also see no need for the cover, other than a measuring device. So removed the screws at the front, pushed the assembly back into the washer, and unclipped the rest of the lid. Once the lid of the tray assembly was off, it was easy to remove the softener cover. The only challenging part was getting the re-closed assembly to go back into the cut-out in the face metal. I got caught a couple times, but getting my hand up under the assemble allowed be to push evenly up on both sides as I pushed it forward into place.

Now the door works fine again. Seems to be a significant design flaw by LG.

Hope the helps other.
