Unplug the machine then drain the water manually by gravity. Place the drain hose into a bucket or shallow basin on the floor to drain the water. Water should gush down the drain hose if the drain system including the drain hose is clear. This signifies that the drain pump is not working. Check to make sure that the drain hose is not clogged or kinked and the drain pump filter, if there's any, is clear if water does not flow down the drain hose. Also check the drain pump for any sign of degradation or damage.

Malibu Lighting ML300RTW Transformer Motor

Motor has gotten weak, and is overheating and soon will not work.
Some people report taking apart motor and cleaning gears.
Others report that they didn't record how the gears came off, and can not reassemble.
PB912M10 Clock module is not sold separately.

Switch power pack to override so lights are ON, and plug transformer into cheap wall timer.

Copy following link for tips to get power pack to last longer, troubleshoot, and warranty, etc.

Not spinning and showes error F 50

F50 = Motor Stall Error
The biggest problem with this machine is the rps sensor. If you pull the motor cover you can get to the rps. Then take the rps on and off about 5 times to remove a factory coating that keeps it from making the contact that it needs. For some reason the machine will work fine for several months after purchase before this occurs. After you do this it works fine. F50 f51 f70 codes

Machine having same error E3 not spining, does water pressure influence

The error code e3 is related to weak motor or faulty motor brushes.The brushes gets worn out and causes this error code in most of the cases/.Check the motor brushes and replace/.But if the brushes looks fine then its the faulty /weak motor causing this problem.The cost for pair of brushes is $45.And the cost of new motor assembly is near to $230. -----------

The motor keeps turning on & off like it is overheating

it sounds as if it is overheating. there is a sensor inside all motors that shuts the motor down if it reaches a certain temperature.
If your motor shuts down after running for a while then 15 minutes or so just comes back on then that is what is happening.
Could be the result of not enough air around the motor to keep it cool, or something inside the motor making it work harder than it should like the bearings going out.

LG washing machine Model # wm2077cw

LE is a locked motor error. If this happens often then 95% of the time this is just a bad hall sensor (motor position sensor). A technician should be able to ohm out the hall sensor to make sure. The part is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace.

This can also happen if the motor is overheating slightly from being overfilled (too many clothes) or if you do one load after the other and do not allow at least 10-15 minutes between loads for the motor to cool down. In this case the LE error will only happen occasionally.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Xerox DC12 Error: 7-286

Accurate on the code.
If the lift motor is not running in diagnostics, that is telling you one of 4 things.
In order of likelyhood.
1.The lift motor itself is bad.
2.The connector to the motor needs unplugged and plugged back in.
3, The source to the motor is out, therefore the power supply is bad.
4 The MCU, main processor board is bad.
I suspect the lift motor has failed.

Error H02

I had the same problem and found that the motor that spins the cd so it can be read would start and stop. I opened the case removed the assembly with the motor and placed a drop of 3in1 lightweight oil on the shaft of the motor ran it a few times and now it works perfectly fine. Good luck hope this helps you as well.
