You have to give more space for virtual meomory, this is called paging file problem, when your pc try to shutdown it doesnot have enough memory to close the services that opened by windows, so go to my computer, hit properites, then advanced, then uder performances hit setting,select the best performance and hit apply, before you exit this, hit advance again, and go down to virtual memory and select the higest number.change it and put the higest number. for more information visit this:

Washer will not spin agitated slow GE WJRR4170G1WW


Dawn, sounds like your lid switch may have gone bad. Just a guess. There is a place called repair clinic that has some videos of how things work. Check that out and see what you think. You may need to repost your problem if that doesn'rt help you any.

Will not spin, and drain water


could be a couple things
first check the switch on the door lid. sometimes it is not being pushed down enough. Try pushing with a screwdriver, lightly. You should hear a clicking sound as it engages.
If it clicks but still no spin. You will need to access the switch by lifting the lid or from the back. unplug the washer then unplug the switch and use an ohm meter to check that the switch is conntecing when being pressed down. if not replace the switch.
Another quick test is to jump the two wires together and if it spins then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
If you hear a humming noise then something under the unit is the problem. depending on make and model it could be a belt for the old ones. could be a rubber grommet above transmission on the direct drive styles.
Start with those and see what you find.

Agitator will not spin


check the lid switch first,lift the lid a couple of inches and close it down,if it clicks the lid switch is good and you most likely broke the motor coupling.remove the twoscrews that hold down the top console,lift it up and with a screw driver pop the metal clips and disconnect the lid switch wires in the middle,it's a white platic connector,now remove the whole cover of the washer,down the bottom you'll see the pump.with a screw driver pop the two metal clips and remove the pump,next remove the tow screws and clips holding the motor in place and pull out the motor,on the back you'll find the coupling,there should be two pieces of white plastic with three arms on each piece and a black piece of rubber that goes in between the two white pieces,remove the old coupling and tap on the new pieces one on the motor shaft and the other on the tranny shaft,slide the rubber piece on the tranny part of coupling and then line up the other piece that's on the motor shaft slide it together and put everything back,it's easier than it sounds,let me know how you make out,if you sent the model number i could of gave you the part number,i think it's PL337

Had a problem new yrs eve. Drove home fine got in the drive and turned the key off the lights went off in the dash but the truck didn't shut off. Pulled the ignition fuse to shut off. Today truck started...


Sounds as if dimmer slider/switch is going to ground on this model the headlight switch should have a dimmer thumbwheel, if it is all the way up and then you feel the indent and that should turn the inside domelamp on, if it does not the switch is bad. also check your vanity mirror covers, sometimes the little pins that shot off the light when you close the mirror covers stick open and run your battery down over night or in a few hours. Charge battery and then check these lights first, depress white pins to shut off.

I have a Kenmore 900 series washer. It fills with water but them doesn't run. I see no switch on the lid but if I lift and shut the lid sometimes it will start. This is getting worse.


There is a lid switch which is proabably going bad it is located at the rear of the lid lift the lid up all the way look where the lid touchs the tol at the back in the middle you will see a little tab sticking out which when you close the lib the lid presses down on this tab which makes the switch function. You have to take off the top of washing machine to replace switch. Unplug washer before doing this

The symptoms you describe are often caused by a lid switch malfunction. It may be loose or not making good contact. hence, the reason why you can get it to work sometimes by lifting and closing the lid. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. A replacement switch usually cost between $25 and $35. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.

NOTE: For future reference, it is strongly recommended that you do not slam the washer lid or place heavy objects on the lid. This can cause damage to the lid switch.

Have to slam the lid


The same thing happened here. It turned out to be the lid switch. It can be accessed by taking off the back plate (behind the controls) by unscrewing three screws and two screw bolts -simple.

I removed the lid switch and tested it with an ohm meter - instructions are on this site. You should have continuity across machine-motor, as well as across machine -line. (These are labeled on the switch).

If you don't have a meter and you still want to see if that's the problem, after you have removed the lid switch, short the machine and line connectors, (you'll see these labeled on the lid switch so you'll be able to figure out which wires go with what) as well as shorting the machine and motor connectors. Both of these need to be shorted. That bypasses the switch and will activate the motor and controls.

That's what I did to confirm that it was all a "lid switch " problem. I ordered a lid switch from this site for $24.95 for the repair, and will use the "shorting process" to do a couple of loads of wash as I wait three days to get the switch. Good luck.
