I looked over your model number and saw what I thought I would find: moisture sensors2415f22.jpget clothes are electrically conductive. With electronic sensing dryers as the wet clothes tumble, they touch the two metal bars in the drum. There is a capacitor on the control that is trying to build up a charge, but when wet clothes create a short from one bar to the other, this charge is released to the frame of the dryer, therefore discharging the capacitor. As long as the capacitor charge is low, the control knows the clothes are wet. As the clothes become dryer, they short the bars fewer and fewer times. Once the capacitor charge builds to a certain level, the control knows the clothes are mostly dry, and it advances the program to the final timed portion, usually less than 20 minutes, some of which is a cool down portion to reduce wrinkling. If your dryer is shutting off after only 10 minutes, that means the control capacitor is never getting discharged. This can be due to a few different reasons: 1. Sensing bar wire is disconnected or broken; 2. Load is not large enough (remember the bars must be contacted repeatedly); 3. Bars are "coated" by fabric softener build up and need to be cleaned with Windex or 409. 4. Defective control board. 5. Airflow is restricted and moisture can't escape the drum. 6. Corrosion built-up on sensing board connection.(yank out the board and clean the contacts that sometimes is all it takes) Address the airflow condition and load size. Clean the sensor bars and make sure the wires are all connected securely. Yank this DUDE out of its slot and clean the contacts. Re-install. Retry.

How to reset brandt washing machine


Stopped or Won't Start If the washer won't start or has stopped during a load, verify it has power. Plug a nightlight or other device into the power outlet to test it if you can easily access it. Otherwise, check the circuit box for a tripped breaker. Open and close the lid or door of the machine. If the washer stopped during a wash, adjust the load so that it is balanced. Check if the drain hose is clogged, and clear if needed. Turn the machine on with dry hands. If it still won't start, unplug it or turn the circuit breaker off, then back on until the breaker firmly clicks in place and plug the machine into the outlet. Push the restart button. Some machines may require you set the knob to a specific setting for the reset feature to work. On some machines, hold down the button labeled "Start-Pause" or "Stop" for a slow count of five. Turn the washing machine on. Run a rinse and spin cycle to check that washer is working and that the error code, if applicable, cleared.
Washers Without a Reset Button If it isn't possible to access the washing machine's plug to manually reset the washer, turn off the circuit breaker. Leave it off from 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the machine model or instructions in the owner's manual. For washers with a knob control, turn the dial clockwise to any cycle other than "Final Spin." With button controls, select any cycle other than "Spin." Check that the water to the washing machine is on. Turn the breaker back on. Turn the washing machine on. Some machines require that you open and close the lid six times after plugging the machine in to reset the motor.
When Reset Doesn't Work In some cases, after using the reset button -- or resetting the washer manually -- nothing happens. Your machine may have a problem or a faulty part that keeps it from operating. Among the most common are problems with door switches, latches or a faulty timer that may require replacement. Authorized technicians can replace parts or service the washing machine as needed. Websites of major manufacturers have replacement parts available to order and some provide schematics or answer your questions. On a recent-model washing machine, check if it's still under warranty.

If the door of the machine is opening you can follow the below reset procedure so that the machine will function properly but if the door in your machine is not opening you need to first get the door to open by following the procedure as stated in the link http://www.fixya.com/support/r4240518-door_not_opening_in_equator_hirundo
Resting the unit will make sure that all the memory storage in the chip will be erased and hence the unit will be ready for a new cycle.

  1. Make sure that the machine is turned OFF.
  2. Make sure that the door is opening.
  3. Set the dryer & wash temperature knobs to the off position (12 o'clock / pointing vertically upwards)
  4. Make sure that the door is latched properly.
  5. Set the washer knob on the Red Reset position and switch on the power.
  6. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  7. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  8. Set the washer knob to the Green Reset Position and switch on the power.
  9. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  10. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  11. Set the washer knob to the Grey Reset Position and switch on the power.
  12. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  13. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.

Door not opening in Equator / Hirundo (EZ3612CEE/EZ2512CEE/EZ1612V)


Door not opening in Equator / Hirundo ( EZ3612CEE / EZ2512CEE / EZ1612V )
If the door in the unit is not opening it means that the unit has not completed the cycle selected or else there is something in the unit that has malfunctioned. In such cases if there are clothes in the unit, one tries to open the door by pulling the door handle which mostly results in breaking of the door handle and also the clothes in the unit cannot be removed
To avoid the breakage of the door handle and also the damage to the clothes you can follow the following procedure to open the door.
  1. Make sure that the machined is turned OFF.
  2. Set the dryer & wash temperature knobs to the off position (12 o'clock / pointing vertically upwards)
  3. Turn the wash program knob to cycle no. 4 & advance the knob by 6 clicks in the clockwise direction.
  4. Turn the machine ON by pressing the ON/OFF Switch.
  5. You will observe that the machine starts draining out the water and also the drum starts moving ( goes into the spin cycle)
  6. Wait until the water is drained out of the machine, this can be understood by paying attention to the sound made by the drain pump when it initially starts draining out the water and once the water has been drained out.
  7. Once you are sure that all the water in the unit has drained out switch OFF the power.
  8. Try opening the door now, the door should open.
Once you have managed to open the door, it is advisable to reset the unit first before further using the machine. For the Reset Procedure Click Here

Door starts and stops immediately i sprayed the tracks and it worked for about a week but now it's back to starting and stop[ng prematurely


With most garage door openers, you can look under the light bulb cover and you'll find two numbered knobs. These knobs set the motor torque/speed ratio. Basically, if the door is really smooth having the knob turned down will make the motor go faster. Turning the knob up will give the motor move "oomp" but it will move a little slower. One knob adjusts the power going up and the other knob adjusts the power going down. This basically depends on how good the springs are working on the door itself. So just adjust the knobs until the motor is running each direction "comfortably".

Door wont open


I am assuming you have a front loading machine. This is a safety feature so you don't open the machine and water runs out or a child crawls in. You need to turn the machine off (turn the dial to finished and push the switch in)

Washing machine


The knob keeps turning when you have a problem with the machine the most common problem with indesit is the pump. check to see if there is any thing in the filter compartmet located at the bottom on the front of the machine if so clean and replace.. THEN you will have to reset the knob. you do tis by turning the dial to one of the off position (the big black dot ). Then leave the door open and keep switching the machine on and off quickly from the button on the front of the machine untill you c the lights flicker rappidly.. once this happens the machine is reset and ready to wash ... p.s The pump can be one source for a problem... others include brushes on motor.....but most likely it will be the pump tell tell signs are water in the drum
