Hello. The Dewalt random orbit sander has a 3 year warranty so if yours is still under warranty you should contact a dewalt service center and not repair it your self except for this

As part of CFS (Controlled Finishing System®), your sander is equipped with a replaceable
disc (F) which is located between the pad (C) and the sander body (G). It is designed
to increase the dust collection efficiency and control the pad speed while the unit is off the
work surface. The disc is designed to be a consumable part and will occasionally need to be
replaced. Replacement is necessary when the pad speed increases very dramatically when
the unit is lifted from the work surface.
TO REPLACE YOUR CFS DISC (FIG. 6)
CAUTION: Turn off and unplug the tool before making any adjustments or removing
or installing attachments or accessories. Be sure the switch is in the OFF position.
a. Remove the three screws from the bottom of the pad.
b. Remove the pad (C).
c. Remove worn CFS disc (F).
d. To install the new CFS disc, place the spring side of the disc toward the sander.
e. Align the notches (H) on the CFS disc with the seams in the sander body.
f. Replace the pad and the three screws. Be careful not to over-tighten screws.

Washer won't agitate or spin


Hello there and welcome to fixya
there are several things that you will need to check first ok please verrify the following
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Not spinning to let out water


Hi

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
