Make this tests and fix it. God bless you

Thermal Fuse

If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work. The thermal fuse is usually located in the control panel on the control board or mounted to the bottom of the tank behind the lower panel. The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity.

Door Switch

The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Door Latch

If the dishwasher does not start, the door latch assembly might be defective. These are normally made of plastic and cannot be repaired. If the door won't latch and the door latch is broken, replace it.

Main Control Board

The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. You should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Timer

The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

My lg front loader wont spin


If the machine does not spin then either the stator or rotor assemblies are faulty. If the rotor or stator fails or is damaged the washer might not spin or agitate.

8 YEAR OLD LG FRONT LOAD WASHER WONT SPIN OR DRAIN


If the washer won't spin the stator or rotor assemblies at the back of the washer tub might be bad or damaged. The rotor is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the rotor fails or is damaged the washer might not spin or agitate. Check the rotor for damaged magnets or other defects

The tail rotor wont spin


It appears that the tail rotor holds the horizontal stability when going backwards. i.e. only works when command is backward.
If the tail rotor does not spin then try lubricating the shaft with some talcum powder. To test whether it working blow down on to the rotor and it should spin rapidly. The talcum powder worked for me.

Stealth flyer ii bottom propellor wont rotate. any help on how to fix


Ya, I've got that problem too. I note that the bottom rotor spins without turning the gear inside the copter (I can hear the gear when I turn the top rotor. So I'm thinking that maybe the rotors plastic sleeve was glued to the shaft and that came loose. But I'm a little hesitant to put glue in there until I'm sure!

Heli wont go up very much and turns to the left


If thi is a Reflex with two opposing rotors and two directional fans then use the "trim wheel" on the top of the rotor assembly to counteract the spin. If you crashed it often enough the shaft for the top rotor may have come loose. I'm not sure how this actually works with the trim wheel but mine crashed a bit and the shaft came out. I re-inserted it and it worked OK for a while but eventually the gear inside stoppped grabbing the shaft and the top rotor would not spin. I took it apart and tried gluing the gear to the shaft and that got the rotor to spin at the same rate as the lower rotor but I could not trim to get rid of the spin on the body. I would advise not buying the Reflex becuse it does not hold up very well. I went out and purchased a Sharpshooter which is easier to fly and seems more durable

Spins out of control wont trim out


Have you tried checking the back tail? It comes down right under the rotor. If it is ripped, DONT TAPE IT! Taping will just ruin the weight balance and ruin it. If it is ripped, return it and exchange it, dont try and fix it.

Spinning no matter what i do


Issue: Heli spins to the Left (counterclockwise) uncontrollably.
Problem: Tail rotor not turning fast enough, Dragging.
Background: My son's Heli Cage also started spinning to the left after he had flown it a couple 3 times. The trim and direction stick could not compensate. One time, the tail rotor came off during a crash. It was put back on and ran fine a couple more times until the dreaded left spin. I began to troubleshoot the issue. I checked for damage, hair and whatever else on the shaft. There was no obvious signs. When I pulled the tail rotor off, I noticed that it came off very easily. I put a new one on it and problem solved.
Diagnosis: the tail rotor shaft was spinning inside the rotor. This prevented the tail rotor from turning the correct speed.
Corrective Measures: replace rotor with new one. Avoid hitting the rotor while it is spinning...good luck! :-)
