Hello zurdo4ever
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

You said, power on , but it won't spin. hear a clicking noise in the motherboard.
Everything seems to work. except it won't spin.
The dryer was only spinning but not heating lately. need assistance

The clicking is a bad relay sound.
This is an electrical problem and it may be a need for a new cpb (Control panel Board) also.
time to get a tech in there to diagnose which problem you have and get you doing laundry again

Thank You For trusting us with your question

Sounds like corrosion in the motherboard . Get an electronics serviceman to take a look, could just need soldering point to point connection. Hope this helps.

Rear driver's window won't roll down

Most probably motor. Have someone push button while u hold ear to inside door and listen for motor to try and run.

Most time shot in dark as most will not make noise but sometimes you will hear a click letting you know that power is at least getting to motor.

Samsung dryer, model: DV317AEG turns on, but won't spin

Could be the motor is full of lint. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are take the belt off and spin the barrel and the motor separately motor should spin free, barrel a little harder to spin,but spin at least a quarter turn after letting go.

Im having a problem with some sort of power issue, sometimes it works and sometimes it just doesnt come on. i can hear a buzzing noise but it doesnt spin can you help thanks

I think I had this kind of issue before on my computer. I sorted it out. First I check the motherboard and wiring inside if there are any wires touching the fans because of the buzzing sound. Found nothing. I noticed that the buzzing sound came from my hard drive. It seems that it's not getting enough power that's why its struggling to spin. What I did was I changed my power supply to higher wattage and everything was fine after that. You can give it a try though. If it still the same issue, you might as well try a different hard drive.

It just stopped heating

If you have a gas dryer the burner is ignited by a eletroniic ignitor. It will make a ckicking noise upon starting it when set in the heat mode. You should hear the click or clicking noise it makes within 30 seconds after starting the dryer. If no click is heard, replace the spark ignitor

Power on but it won't spin.

You have a broken drive belt. To access the belt you have to remove the back metal cover.
The no heat problem could be a heating element or safety thermostat. These are also located under the back metal cover.

No picture on the screen


I have this Panasonic PanaSync SL70 17'' monitor, I don't use it often. It is still in very great shape. However, I tried to turn it on yesterday, I got a black screen. The power LED is on and I can hear the relay is clicking when signal received. I tried to remove the signal cable, I can see it turns to power saving mode. It seems that everything works fine except no picture. I am if the transformer is gone, but not sure. I am wondering if you can help?
