    Same problem - tried the same solutions with resetting breakers and unplugging - happened twice before - finally corrects itself - but not this third time

    we just bought our dryer a couple of weeks ago...and should have know better due to the troubles we have with our Maytag wash machine that get's repaired every other month or more. We have the same 8.8 come up on the panel.... I will try the suggestions and hope that this machine will not cause as many problems as our wash machine.

When my dryer showed an 8.8, the maytag help line said to hold the off button down for ~5 seconds. After I released it, the regular display came up. Still has a problem with not heating, which they say could be the control panel.

Klv32s310A sony bravia gets start on with green light and after a second turns to stand by mode blinking the red light 6 times after each 2 second interval


Hello Sagar,
green led means tv powered on and status ok.
Red blinking light almost always means defect, overcurrent or overload.
6 blinks for Sony lcd flat tv means trouble in backlight circuit, or backlight inverter (backlight illumination or lighting makes your tv screen visible).
common problems in the inverter circuit, which drives the backlight, or shorted drivers, or short-circuit transformers or open circuits.
You should find the problem in the inverter circuit, or in the power supply board or in the main board.
Also look for bad capacitors (electrolytic caps) which are bulged and swollen on top.
Decoupling plugs from printed circuit boards can help you in finding the problem board by elimination method.
If you power up the set after unplugging certain plugs on f.e. the inverter board , this could result in getting a green power led and concluding that this board is faulty.

succes,
Walter from Antwerp, Belgium.

"LOC". As I turn the dial to the requested setting, all the times (15min. 55 min., etc.) are displayed, but as I go to push the 'start' button, the screen says, "LOC",...


Hi, "LOC" indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. Hope this helps.

Dryer wouldnt turn on its saying door is open


most of the time. its the door switch that causes this. if door is closed and it does not start, its the door switch. try this! unplug power, remove the door switch, hook the wires from switch together. this will make a complete curcuit.put black tape on wires so it wont short out. plug back in. it should work, if it runs ok door switch is bad. good-day !

2001 TAHOE STUCK IN 4LO CANT SWITCH BACK TO 2HI


does the light say its in four low and it actually isn't or is the truck actually in four low and you cant drive normal speeds? Alot of times in winter and rain conditions moisture gets into plug connection under vehicle and causes a malfunction or short due to moisture and will stop actuators from working. Unplug connections and check for moisture, Spray plug with carb cleaner or starting fluid and blow out plug with lots of compressed air. You can also use a blow dryer or heat gun to dry the plug but do not use starting fluid if you do.

Dryer runs intermittently


"Could the cord/plug and/or receptical be bad and need replaced or is it likely to be something in the dryer's internal wiring?"

Yes, that electrical smell and the dryer not working are all signs of a bad motor.

"I noticed that the plug looked like it was somewhat scorched."

I would replace that plug. This is how electrical fires start.

Kenmore dryer


IF THE DRYER COMES ON BY ITSELF WHEN THE TIMER IS SET AND THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. THIS WILL CAUSE THE END OF CYCLE SIGNAL TO BUZZ WHEN THE TIMER IS IN THE OFF POSITION(END OF CYCLE).UNPLUG THE DRYER, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL OF THE CONSOLE, AND REMOVE ONE WIRE FROM THE PUSH TO START SWITCH. ISOLATE IT SO IT ISN'T TOUCHING ANYTHING AND PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN. SET THE TIMER AND CLOSE THE DOOR. IF IT DOESN'T START UP OR BUZZ, UNPLUG THE DRYER AND REATTACH THE WIRE. PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN AND SEE IF IT STARTS BY ITSELF. IF IT DOES, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED AND WILL NEED REPLACED.
