Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

My whirlpool microwave/oven combo is displaying a "DOOR" error message, and the microwave won't work. I have replaced a 20a bus fuse and all 3 door micro switches... It is still displaying the "DOOR"


When microwaves first got popular I used to be a helper with my next door neighbor who fixed them. I does sound like you should have covered it with those switches. If you close the door very slowly, pulling back on the door see if you can hear all 3 switches clicking. You should be able to hear them easily. If you only hear the first 2 try pushing on the door to hear the 3rd. If it will click with pressure on the corners or in the middle then you door is tweaked, possibly from pulling on the door hard to open it or smacking into something on the edge. If you can hear all 3 switches and it still wont start then its going to be the sensor that receives the signal from the switches. I'm not sure how accessible those are on today's models since they make them as disposables now, back then they cost around $500 so they were serviced.

My printer ESP5210 is showing error codes 3501,3606,3507. What can i do to fix this


To resolve this error, close the printer access door. The printer will not operate while the door/cover is open.
If the error continues even after you close the printer access door, power cycle the printer:
  1. Turn off the power (press the On/Off button on the printer).
  2. Unplug the printer power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Wait approximately 30 seconds.
  4. Plug the printer power cord into the back of the printer.
  5. Turn on the power to the printer.

WHY MY PORTABLE DVD WON'T PLAY


It won't play for one of two reasons:
1. There is something inside the DVD player, which keeps it from playing.
2. The DVD player's battery has run out of juice and can no longer play, meaning the player needs to be replaced.

I have a Maytag range that is displaying F9. The oven door is locked as well as the cook top that allows finding the model number. Please help if you can. I appreciate it so much.


Hi

F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a kenmore elite dryer hE4. the dryer will run for a while then shut off... and will not restart for a while, i have changed the moisture sensor, thermistor, thermal fuse, the moisture sensor wire...


its a door switch problem. Make sure the door is latching properly at the top. If the top latch doesn't engage properly the door switch won't make contact.
Try holding the door switch closed with your finger and starting the dryer. If it still wont start and you have no error codes displaying you will most likely have to replace the switch. if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Error code dL F is popping up on washer. Door will not open, is locked but light will not come on on panel where is says "door locked." Can't wash, nor get the clothes out that need to be washed.


Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. This error occurs because the washer senses that the door cannot be locked (even if it is). The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.
