It could be a drive belt problem, a motor problem or a programming problem.
If there is a removeable rear cover, then have a look to see if the belt is o/k.
Hope this helps.

Humidifier doesn't provide more than 28% humidity


Hi Joe,

If you've got water flowing, but the pad is dry - I suspect that the motor is failing to turn the drum/filter. You might want to somehow mark the drum and watch or check it at short intervals of time to see if it moves or not. If the motor fails to rotate the wet portion of the drum/filter into the airflow - it will be difficult for it to raise the humidity of the space.

I found replacement motors as "#10" on this page: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/humidifiers/general/747.html These motor looks awfully chintzy to cost $55 - $70 (depending on whether it is a 24V or 115V type). They look very much like a standard clock motor. If that's the case, you can probably replace yours (if defective) for a small fraction of that price - if yours is the 115V style anyway.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Washer Control Locked blinking and won't washer won't work


Water still in the bottom of the drum. Empty, clean filter and check pump is turning. Once pressure switch is satisfied no water is left it'll allow the door to open, assuming the door interlock is still ok.

The drum on WF325 hotpoint washing machine does not rotate


Sounds like your gearbox/transmission has went out. Usually cheaper to get a new washer than to replace. Sorry.
It is not the motor, if the water is draining - pump is attached to motor.
Hope this helps...

I have 2 problems with my AEG Lavamat 981. 1. The drum won't empty out. We have tried using the emergency drain and even removed the hose connecting the drum and the pump(at the pump end) but the water...


first if you drum is filling again after wash you may have a faulty hot or cold inlet valve turn water taps of after wash has finished if no water in drum the next day just a matter of isolating which valve it is
your second problem sounds like you have a blockage in the hose coming out of your drum to the water pump may be that missing sock you were looking for hope this helps let me know how you went

Water appears in drum hours after being emptied


could be several reasons...condinsation, if small amount of water moisture try leaving door ajar and see if evaporation takes care of it then you will know and it's possible that your water inlet valve has some "dirt" trapped in the seat and allowing water to seep into washer even though unit not calling for water

Drum not rotating


If you clean your lint filter after each load faithfully, try removing the dryer vent hose that goes to the outside and inspect it for lint accumulation, water build up, or some other foreign material, as this will restrict air flow and cause your described symptoms. If your are unable to inspect your vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and start your dryer to see if it works that way.

Drum filling with water when machine switched off


what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them
