    Sorry about this post showing up here on your request for assistance. There was a washing machine question I answered and I am not sure why this post showed up here. JT

    I knew I shouldn't have put that washing machine motor on my refrigerator but was trying to multi-task. I suppose it won't help try to put one on the oven.

Check engine light flashes and the car shimmies, although not as though it's out of alignment.

A flashing ck eng light is an indication that your vehicle is burning way too much gas, enoigh to damage the catalytic converter. Is the shimmy rhythmic, like a constant repeated vibration that increases with acceleration? If so, have your ignition coils checked. You may have a defective one creating a misfire.

A rhythmic vibrating noise has recently started coming from the motor area. Any ideas?

Generally this means the belt that goes from the front roller to the motor (drive belt) is off center or is wearing out. If you will take off the motor hood cover and run the machine you will be able to see if that is the case. It will determine exactly where the sound is coming from.

Hotpoint sxs compressor stays running.

Fasnipe, it sounds like you are starting to lose the gas in the unit. Fairly soon, you'll see that the unit will fail to keep things cold. If it is less than 5 years old, you may have a warranty. If more, I suggest you get in a technician when the problem begins to impact the ability to keep food. You cannot fix this yourself.
