Sounds like pump is working and motor is not. You will need to test the pump and voltage to the pump. A faulty selector switch or lid switch will also cause non working problems. Go to this site to see what I am talking about.

The timer/control module is obviously faulty.

Please use the "continue with this expert" option and reply with a verification of the model # in question.
Is it AWM5145/2 as noted in the subject selection?

Then I can help you to locate a replacement part.


Thanks
:)

Hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.
One test to try would be to remove the agitator and then put the machine into spin mode. Does it make that noise you spoke of? I guess here, that this is a somewhat uncommon gearcase problem with stripped gears inside. That's a wild guess. You would almost have to look at the clutch to see what it is doing. When in spin, if the clutch is making some wild jerking motions, then the gearcase 
needs to be replaced.

Thanks

What is making creaking squeeking noises in power chair?


hi, that noise can be caused by the seat mount moving slightly within the seat holder, because it 's a tight fitting when it does move slightly , you get the noise...only needs mm amounts of movement, Careful spraying WD40 in the gaps will solve this but take CARE making no electronics or electrics are near...disconnecting one battery will be ideal..

a visual inspection of all of the bolts and nuts should prove peace of mind...

WARNING: You need to tip over the power-chair to carry out the instructions set out below so extreme care is required.

This noise can also be caused by the motor gearbox ,, carefully place your hand on the gearbox as someone powers the chair , can you feel a grinding sensation ? , bear in mind you will get some feeling there of a dragging.

Regards
Rob

Dryer has stopped spinning was making a slight wooing noise but will not spin, i can spin it manually by hand but will not spin when plugged in


You need to check the power to the motor when the dryer is started, if there is no power then the program controller is a suspect and must be checked.
If there is power to the motor - motor warms up then the capacitor to the motor must be checked.

My microsoft is not opening, they said that l should use the control panel to repair it


They're partially correct. What you need to do is open Control Panel and choose Add or Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Office 2007 and select Change (NOT Remove). A window should open that gives you the option to Repair. Select that option and it should resolve your issue.

If your using Windows 7 it's a slightly different process. Open Control Panel, click Programs and Features, then select Office 2007 and select Change. Once again choose Repair and you should be good to go.

Clicking noise under hood - have repaced alternator belt and pulley


i dont want to alarm you but you really need to check into this. the only 98 explorers i have heard with clicks have led to timing chain slider failures which is not a good thing,it was cheaper to buy used motor than to repair. go have it checked out or while the motor is running put your hand on top of valve cover on the rear pass side and feel for clicks or small taps or knocks while reving motor slightly. and repeat on the driver side front of engine. and i sure hope this is not your clicking noise location.

Avaya 18D unable to make outgoing calls


Sounds like you changed your line selection. Changing line selection on a Partner system is done on either ext 10 or 11.
At one of those ext's press the feature key and "00"
Next press the left hand intercom twice
The display should say system programming

Press the right hand intercom once. The display should say Centralized Programming.

Enter in the extension number that you want to program.

enter **
press the lit line in the order you want the to be used, i.e. line 2 then line 3 then line 4 etc.
enter ** when finished with line selection
.
Press feature "00" to logout
Hope that helps
