You cannot open the buttom part. You have to disassemble from the top piece by piece. It is very trickey. First remove the cover of the scanner. Then remove the scanner part. Be careful with the wiring. Now beginn to remove the part which covers the ink assembly. At this point you have access to the screws which which are holding the mechanisem to the buttom part.

My washer door will not open its a wd645 model i cant find the lever when i took lid off


The door latch is probably broken. Emergency opening can be done accessing the door latch from the inside of the washer assembly.

Before attempting an emergency opening, disconnect power cord and empty water inside the machine through the filter located at the bottom front side of the machine.

After removing water connect back the machine and try opening again.

If that does not work, then the machine must be disassembled. Most models have an emergency cable located on the inside of the door latch. Pulling the cable will release the latch.
The inside of the door latch is reached either from filter housing or from top of the machine. Either the filter (usually held by screws) or the top panel must be removed to access the inside of the lock mechanism.
Power must be kept off while doing maintenance. Due to the safety issues involved the door latch emergency opening and repair must be done by a trained technician.

I have an Oster DLC-7 food processor. It has always been very hard to close requiring force. The last time I used it, a white plastic part popped off from the back. I don't know whether anything is...

You have a broken the door latch.Most people have the habit of slamming the door shut ( the same way some people hit the enter button on the computer ).With age the plastic becomes brittle and the slamming accelerates its demise. Now connected to this latch is a safety feature which shuts down the Microwave when the door is opened during cooking. So till you replace this latch the microwave will not work. Disconnect the microwave from the power outlet and remove the top cover ( 4 to 5 screws at the back ) , look near the bottom close to the DOOR OPEN button.You will see the rest of the latch with a spring attached to it.Do not attempt to glue the broken piece because the force exerted on the latch is very high and will not hold. You challenge is getting a replacement. Best would be to contact the seller or locate a authorized service center from where you might be able to procure it. It should cost you about 5$.

I had the dealership address the rattling of the sliding passenger door on our 2002 Honda Odyssey. The removed the inner panel and adjusted the door striker which didn't stop the rattle. Any suggestions...

The sliding door has upper roller, lower roller, and center roller mechanisms. These rollers can become damaged and rattle in their respective tracks. The upper and lower rollers are easy to inspect, as they are at the front of the door (top and bottom) and in plain sight. But the center roller cannot be inspected until the center rail cover (an exterior narrow long panel) is removed.

To remove the center rail cover, first remove the tail light assembly on the affected side. (That procedure can be found by doing a fixya search for "2002 Honda Odyssey brake light replacement"). Now open the sliding door. Notice at the front of the rail cover there is a small bolt. Remove this bolt. Go to the back of the center rail cover and remove the two screws (only accessible when tail light assembly is removed). Then slide the center rail cover rearward to remove it. Now you will be able to inspect the center roller mechanism and door cables. Look carefully for damaged rollers which will let the door wobble in the center track and rattle.

How do these rollers get damaged? When kids climb onto the doors and "slide along". The door guide rollers and latches were not designed to carry much more weight than the door itself.

Whirlpool front load door handle jammd can't open door.

The door latch assembly must be replaced if an error code appears on the display prior to the jamming of the door. The code is either "Fdl" or "Fdu". Please let me know if that is the case.

There is a pull tab located at the bottom of the door latch assembly purposely for manually releasing the door by pulling it down. Here's how to access it:
  1. Lean the washer on its back against the wall.
  2. Remove the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer to remove the lower panel under the door.
  3. Reach the tab with your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right side and pull it down.
  4. Pull the door to open it.
  5. Inspect and clean the door latch for any material or dirt that causes the glitch.

Dacor dcm 24s one broken safety door latch- door open button not

If the broken part is in the door, you will not have to pull the oven out of its place.

If the broken part is in the door open button area, you will have to remove the oven and take off the outer cover. Chances are it will be a broken "door open lever".

Assuming it's a door latch, you can use a thin strip of plastic to open the door.

It has to be somewhat firm but very flexible because it will have to bend at a right angle.

I have a flexible ruler I use for this.

You have to first shove the plastic strip into the crack between the door and the control panel frame about halfway up the door.

Then the strip will need to be maneuvered so it will bend to the left. Do this by pushing the rear end of the strip down as you continue to push it forward.

It may take a few tries.

Once you have it between the back of the door and the front seal of the cooking cavity, pull the strip straight and firmly up and it will lift the upper door latch and the door will open.

(If the upper latch is the one that's open, you have to start with the strip at the bottom edge of the door instead of the middle).

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly and troubleshooting tips, and the parts list is here.

Most computers will open these documents automatically, but you may need the free Adobe Reader.

You can order parts

Once you have the door open, you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have a Whirlpool WFW9200SQA12. F22 light

"F22" is a Door Lock error code. This is an indication of a door latch failure and/or interconnecting wiring problem. The first step in troubleshooting the problem, however, is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of your washing machine. Sometimes these error codes are erroneous and can be easily cleared by resetting the CCU. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a genuine problem. In addition, if the door latch remains locked following this procedure, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains:

If you still have the error code displayed, inspect the door latch mechanism for any broken, loose, or missing components. Next, opne the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the rear of the washer that hold the panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Locate the door latch on the right hand side behind the front panel. Inspect the wiring harness from the door lacth the to CCU. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the top rear of the washer. Make sure all the connectors are snug and not loose or broken. In the majority of cases, a persistant error is a failed door lacth. If all these preliminary checks are unsuccessful, replace the door latch. The next link explains how:

NOTE: "Fdl" is the same as an "F22" error code. This error code appears on older models.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have questions please let me know.

I have a bottom feeder paper jam but cannon see the paper to remove

Most bottom feeder printers also have a roller system on the back of the printer that pulls the paper up and through. Usually, if the paper is not visible, it is jammed in that back set of rollers.

Look on the back of your printer. Is there a bulge on the back? Does it have a latch or obvious set of buttons on each side? Try to push or pull the latches to open this compartment. The paper usually is wadded up inside this.

Would like to help more but don't know which model of printer you have. Please respond and I can be more specific.

Have a Viking trash compactor VUC181 that will not open. Appears latch is broke. How can I get it open?

I have had this same problem and found two causes. Latch was never the problem.
#1 - Ram not in full up position. To check remove top plate and attempt to run compactor - depressing microswitch when ram is at the top. If compactor will not run you can check the ram position by turning the primary screw drive with a ratchet wrench. When ram is at the top position attempt to open the compactor drawer. The stop microswitch seems to frequently bend out of alignment - check the microswitch positioning before resecuring top plate and adjust if necessary.
#2 - Can (or other debris) is wedged in between ram and drawer. Remove back cover and carefully inspect insides of the unit - use a flashlight. Pry out any debris that may impede the drawer from opening. Attempt to open the compactor drawer.

Good luck,
Jon B.

F9 error message - what does it mean and how can I fix?

If the heading you used is correct and this is a Maytag Kitchen Range, "F9" is a Door Latch Supervisory error, or a defective Electronic Range Control (ERC) board (this is the clock assembly board). Since you mentioned you are having difficulty with the door latch mechanism, I would attempt to repair or replace it first. The door latch costs around $50, while the ERC runs about $140-$150 @ Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu and there's a complete parts listing available with illustrations. They also have a service manual available (item# 893398) for about $30 that you can order to assist in repairs. Post back if you need further assistance, please. I hope this helps you.
