Goes in reverse when i push start button

The control panel switch membrane is dirty. You take the right side cover off, take the entire control panel off ( 2 philip screws). The take the control panel apart (5 philip screws) wipe off the connections on the pcb and also clean the "buttons" on the reverse side of the membrane switch. it will work, you still need to replace the membrane in the near future. dirty connection was giving false reverse signal.

Why will my vhf radio not respond to on/off switch

Odds are you have a dirty contact. Soft!!!! Touch switches are exactly that. The switchs in a tv remote, microwave oven, calculator or office equipment have this type of swithch. If you find your pushing them harder to activate them, they need cleaned or batteries need replaced. When I worked on copiers (27years) I noticed that only the the slower copiers had keyboard switch problems. I called this the elevator syndrome. You know the more times you push the button the faster the elevator goes? Ultimately this damaged the button resulting in a cracked solider joint . Possibility #2. I have a set of the radios your discribing odds are it's option #2. They force you to hold swithch down until it "boots up" end result cracked solider joint goog luck ,

you can unplug it for about 30 minutes, but I would venture to guess that the sensor which is located below the lint trap(if you look down the trap you will see to screws) is dirty and need to be cleaned, clean gently as not to break the sensor. Good Luck Tim

Duet washer stopped during wash cycle.

take off the panel below the door three screws and look for the tech sheet located on the right side. It will coach yoou thru the codes and common problems. Sounds like it may be the door swithch does it lock when you push the start? If not the door switch my guess would be a machine control. 877-262-1479 parts.
