I have a Samsung DV5451AEW/XAA dryer that will NOT shut off. It ran a cycle and finished drying. The panel is now turned off and non responsive, but the drum is running without heat. I have left the dryer...

Sounds like you have the spin relay for the drum, stuck in a closed position. If you can locate where it is, you van give it a few taps to get it to disengage. You will then have to try to clean the contact on the relay that is sticking with a toothbrush and some spray contact cleaner that is safe for plastic. If this doesn't work, you will have to replace the relay or the contact. I hope this helps.

Drum will not spin.

first disconnect your cord from the dryer, and ohm out the cord. place your test leads to each end of each of the wires. you could have a bad cord. one side of the cord could still give 110 to your board. check to see if the broken belt switch is tripped. if all this checks out, then should be your relay board. the one above the drum.

Samsung WF7700N6W1 washing machine not draining

Could be a sock or something between the 2 drums that moves over the outlet hole from the drum when upright and trying to drain but moves away when machine is on its side. Get a flashlight and look through the holes in the inner drum and you may find the culprit.
A coin may also be stuck in by the pump blade, not always easy to see but worth a look.

I have a Samsung SCX 4200 laser printer. It was fine for the first two years but then I started having problems with the print on the edges of my pages being lighter/faded. This is of the last six months....

Confirm what the dude told you, then act. Lots of folks out there do not really know what they are talking about and not even familiar with Ohm's law.

Drums do also go bad and have to be replaced. Surprised to hear hear that on your machine they are together. Didn't you say you just replaced the toner? So how could they be an ensemble?!

Maytag Neptune washer always has water in the drum after wash is done? Any ideas? I can hear lots of water left in the washer when I spin the drum manually and of course it has a moldy smell having water...

The liquid is a saline solution which is hermetically sealed in the front balance ring on the spinner. It is there to reduce vibration and acts like a gyroscope when the spinner revolves. Good sound to hear when you spin the basket. The smell can be gotten rid of by using a washing machine cleaner like tide.

It was working fine. All of a sudden, the dryer stopped. When I press the start button I hear a buzz or grunt sound, but the drum doesn't spin.

Hello- Its possible that there is a bad start relay or switch but most likely the motor is bad. Try spinning the drum by hand, if it doesn't spin there may be something (a sock) stuck in the blower motor. You would have to take the machine apart to determine this. Depending on the Make and Model it could be difficult, or not. Just BE SURE if you open anything up the dryer is unplugged. Good Luck

Drum does not spin

We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$).  So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards.  We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake.  Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.
