I have a nec nw-691, when you put it on spin cycle it brings error message --lid open??? plz help


Yuo might try making sure it is still level but I'd just try using a lower spin speed. How have to use "gentle spin" when I wash towels or my washing machine has errors and stops. If still too damp just use a gentle spin only cycle once more to finish the job.

Kenmore sewing machine mod 1703 motor runs but


By 'The wheel the belt is on' you mean the motor pully? If that is so obviously some oil has some how made way on the pully and the belt. Try to remove the belt and clean both wheels and the belt free of oil. This shd slove the problem.

If it doest then please send a photo of the arrangement showing pully and belt. U didnt mention if the machine is old or new. Did u oil it recently before trouble developed?

Turntable spinning too fast


The turntable speed is controlled by a belt, which is virtually a big rubber band. If it spinning too fast , then this means the belt is too tight. The only way this can happen is for the unit to be fitted with an incorrect size belt. You didn't say if you have a new unit, or a second-hand one, or if it has recently had the belt replaced. If it is a new unit and still under warranty, take it back to the retailer and ask them to fix it for you. Again, if you have recently had the belt replaced, take it back and ask them to do the job again, and this time to please use the correct belt. Be polite but firm....If you are a handyman, the job is not too hard to do yourself, and if you need any extra help, just ask, johnatwagga@yahoo.com. To buy the correct belt, you will need the name, model number, and preferably, the serial number. All of these can be found on the back of the unit. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

Washers isnt working


Most probably its your belt that has come off. Open up behind to check and refit. If belt is too loose, replace. The belt should "give" about half an inch after it is fitted. Or it would be too tight or too loose.
