The sensor would help it detect vibration and go back to settle mode and restart the spin.
If you have abnormal vibration all the time be certain
1st that machine is really level. can you push or pull the machine when it vibrating and does that stop most of the noise. if so it is not really level.

then open the top (3 screws in top rear)

remove power to unit as you want to live.
Check the suspension and springs they should act like your car.
look,feel, nothing should be loose or disconnected.
the concrete balances should not be loose or cracked.
push on the basket it should resist in all directions.

1. I need a service manual 2. how do you raise the water level of the machine

The water level sensor is a pressure switch and there is setting to which as the water gathers into the TUB the pressure exerted on the diaprgram within the pressure switch will correspond and determine the point of switching. So to increase the level within ( make sure that the switch is working as a damaged pressure switch will REQUIRE more water pressure to switch -- faulty diaphragm.)
To increase the level you can set the diaphragm controller to a higer setting-- this provision is seen on most pressure switches so that a higher pressure is needed to switch on thereby the water level goes higher.

My ps3 pad will not stop vibrating even when i turn it of

Toggle the vibration function on the controller (turn if off then on again). You can do this by holding down the Playstation button in the center of your controller. Then select "Controller Settings" and switch the "Vibration Function" to off. Exit out and repeat the steps, but this time turning it on.

You could also try to reset the controller. There's a little button in the controller on the backside at the top; it's near the L2 button. You'll need a paper clip in order to reach it. Press it, then reconnect/re-pair your controller to the PS3 (you know, hook it up via USB then hit the Playstation button).

If there's still problems just let the battery drain; hopefully it'll be sorted out when you charge it back up.

Hope that helped!

The tub is spinning off balance. Yes the load is evenly distributed and the washer is level. We repaired the coupling and now hooked the washer back up it is spinning out of control banging against the...

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

The plastic cup and brass pin are simply shipping tub locks. The pins are designed to brake off and fall into the cups when the washer is installed. They are NOT a problem.

You can buy rubber pads at the home center that damper the vibrations.
The high pitch noise could be an object stuck between tubs.

The problem you have is a faulty image stabilizer. It's a well known problem in these cameras. It's a hardware fault and I'm afraid you won't be able to fix it yourself. Usualy it requires the lens unit to be replaced. You should contact your local Sony service center or me at - I give the best prices. ;)

Hope this helps!

Washing machine has a seizure during the spin cycle.

Try leveling the washer so that it is about half a bubble biased towards the rear. This usually helps front loading washers balance properly even if the installation instructions say that it should be perfectly level. This can also aid draining problems.
Also, some newer front loading washing machines are simply prone to dramatic vibration even when they is "anti-vibration" or "vibration reduction" systems. You can never go wrong installing an anti-vibration pad under the washer. Good Vibrations Inc, Kellett Enterprises and The Vibration Solution all have good products. The Vibration Solution seems to have figured out the best solution and offers excellent support and return policies.

If all else fails call the retailer and ask for an exchange.

Vibration on 1985 740gle

Volvo claims that if you don't put them back just as you took them off, this will happen. You probably should pull it again, replace the U-joints and then attempt to put the shaft back as it was originally.
