Draw for washing powder won't open

Any ideas? So far I've managed to pull the cover off but luckily the clips haven't snapped. However the draw simply will not pull out.

The drawer will be stuck in by detergent or softener, only way to get out is to prise out from dispenser box, in the past I have managed to lean machine backwards against a wall and poor a kettle of boiling water around the edges of drawer sometimes this will soften detergent other wise only one sollution brute force, soory no other way of getting it out.

I assume its a front loader? If so, the centre of the drawer (when open) has a clip which you push down to release the dispenser. It should slide straight out.

My hotpoint wmud843p washing machine is leaking from the detergent draw at the start of the rinse cycle?

Open the draw. Grip it tightly and pull it out. clean the draw and clean the dispenser housing. Usually leaks due to powder etc getting stuck under dispenser draw causing water to bridge across and leak under draw. Also use a pipe cleaner or cable tie to clear any blocked holes in the dispenser.

The detergent draw won't pull in and out easy. You've really got to 'pull' to get it open and 'push' really hard to make it close.

theres is probably soap inside the track where the drawer slides, just clean it out and you should be fine.

The easiest thing would be to switch to liquid detergent or a different brand of powder. There might be diminished water flow. Try cleaning the nozzles where the water comes into the dispenser at.

Philips dvdr 3480 disc draw refuses to open

This usually happens when you close the drawer with no disc in it. There is a strong magnet inside the DVD-drive that keeps the spinning disc in the correct position. But when the drive is empty, the magnet is connected to tough to its counterpart (no disc in between) and the worn out motor and/or transmission (belt) is not able to pull them apart in order to open the disc tray.

How to fix - "brute-force-attack":
Press OPEN and give the disc draw a couple of decent slaps (or snap at the tray cover with your forefinger) until it opens. Repeat procedure, if motor stops before drawer is open.

How to fix - "high-tech-approach":
Disconnect power chord. Locate the slot provided at the bottom of the device, near the smaller, left clip holding the front panel. Insert a screwdriver into it at the far right (when viewing from the front), so you can push a small white plastic-lever-thingy (can be seen thru the slot) to the far left. Now the tray is partly opened and can be pulled out completely.

Future outlook:
Don't you never ever close your old machine with no disc in the tray - or just start over again...
