You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: swan sw2020b wont spin

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.

Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a 1994 plymouth voyage se and it will not strat. It tell me to check gauge light comes on. what should i do or what does that mean?


Turn key to on ( not start) then off, then on, then off, then on and leave on, and have a pen and paper ready to record flashes of "check engine light". It will flash then pause between second number of 2 digit code. Then a short pause and flash again, pause, then flash. For example: if it flashes 2 times, then pause, then flashes 2 more times, that would be code 22. If it flashes 3 times, pause, then flashes 5 more times, that would be code 35. As I said, there will be a short pause between 2 digits, as well as after number. Write them down as they come up and get back to us with those codes for advice. When you get code 55 ( 5 flashes, pause 5 more ) that means end of message. Those codes should point everyone in right direction of trouble spot.

I have a jazzy 1121 power chair and the lights on the joy stik are flashing and the chair just stoped working


Doggy count the number of flashes ie 4 flashes pause 4 flashes if you are not getting any pauses
what lights are flashing the battery level lights or the speed lights? Are all the battery level lights flashing or there are 3,4,5,6 or 7 etc. lights flashing? if you are getting a pause between flashes the number of flashes will tell you the error. Your owners manual should tell what each code means. Hope this helps
