There are thumb screws that hold the ribbon. Hold the ribbon with one hand and turn the screw with the other.

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and

Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.

Faceplate won't open all the way

Sometimes the mechanism is misplaced, just disassemble that mechanism and turn on radio without the secondary plate and wait until the motor to get to the final position when it turns off again, reassemble.

The Hold to start button is not starting the washer anymore. It used to work but it no longer makes the click that used to start the washer. It seems to be stuck

The user interface board is not serviceable and it requires to be replaced when it is not working properly or when a button is stuck. The procedure is quiet easy and you can do it yourself.

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws attaching the rear of the top panel to the back of the washer then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the washer.

Disconnect the 7-terminal user interface ribbon connector from the left side of the central control unit.

Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops; press down the release tab then pull the drawer completely out of the washer.

Remove the screw in the recessed hole at the left of the drawer opening. Press and release the tab securing the right side of the console to the cabinet.

Open the washer door then insert the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver into the slot at the bottom center of the console then push the console up to release the tab attaching its bottom to the cabinet.

Gently pry up and release the top of the console then pull it off the washer.

Pull the cycle selector knob off the control panel then release the tabs securing the user interface/LED assembly to the control panel. Lift the user interface/LED assembly from the control panel once all of the tabs are released.

Inspect the Hold to Start button and the alleged stuck membrane in the user interface board. Replace the button if it is broken. Try your luck by trying to unstuck the stuck membrane. If no luck at all, replace the user interface assembly.

Install the new user interface/LED assembly into the control panel by inserting it into the tabs from one side to the other until it is completely secured, and then reinsert the cycle selector knob.

Align the console tabs with the slots in the cabinet then insert the tabs into position. Secure the left side of the console with the screw previously removed, and then slide the dispenser drawer back in place.

Reconnect the user interface ribbon connector to the central control unit then slide the top panel back into position and secure it with the three securing screws.

Note: The user interface assembly part number may differ from version to version of the same model. The version is indicated by the last digit of the model number so make sure to indicate the complete model number of your washer located on the left side of the door opening.

The ribbon won't 'take up'. It seems stuck in one

Remove the ribbon and wind the feedwheel by hand and check for ribbon movement, if none, replace. Visually inspect the ribbbon feed assembly to see if it is rotating the feed gears (mark with felt pen) A drop or two of oil mayhhelp, but the ribbon motor may be defective also.

How Do I Get the Old Ribbon Off the Spindle?

The large button in the middle of the ribbon take-up spool releases the two bars that press out into the ribbon, making it looser and easier to remove. You might have to push kind of hard. Last resort, there's always scissors
