Depending on the make of washer which you do not specify, most brands now have a cancel button, you press this to cancel the programme, and reselect the new programme., it may be incorporated in the start button.
I cannot be any more specific, as you have not given the make.

Washing Machine not stopping water flow

in the back of the machine attached to the bowl is a small tube that goes up to the controller in the dash panel. This tube should be straight with no kinks or pinch points. This is pitote tube and conveys pressure to the controller diaphragm that connects to a micro switch that turns the water off and the machine on. As the water rises the air trapped in the tube increases in pressure and pushes on the diaphragm. Sometimes if there is water trapped in the tube it stops working You control the pressure that the diaphragm works at by the water level you select

I want to switch back to yahoo mail classic

How to change back to Yahoo--try this & see if it works for you
Log in to your yahoo mail account
In your web browser go to the yahoo mail home page sign in to your account using your yahoo ID and password, then click the yellow sign in button. Once you've successfully logged in you'll see your email folders on the left and the what's new and inbox tabs in the middle.
Choose the mail classic option
On the upper right side of the page there are three links -- Mobile, Options, and Help. Click Options, and when the drop down menu appears, choose mail classic
Confirm that you want to switch back
A dialog box will pop up with two choices -- switch to yahoo mail classic and cancel. If you're sure you want to switch, click the first option; otherwise, choose cancel to keep the new yahoo mail.

Depending on your computer's speed and your internet connection, the switch may take several seconds. When it's completed, you'll be looking at the old familiar yahoo mail classic interface.

1993 Dodge Dakota 5.2 318 4x4, turns over, but no spark. Cat converter shot, removed. Plugs, cap, rotor replaced. MAP sensor recently replaced...will start and run once in a great while.

Try switching the ASD Relay for another relay in the Fuse Box in the Engine Compartment. If the ASD Relay fails it cancels the power to the Hall Effect & Fuel Pump.
If that doesn't change anything, check the wiring harness that travels down the left wheelwell for damage, It actually goes outside of the engine compartment, into the wheelwell where it can be damaged by rocks, road debris or a tire (if you've flexed the suspension, or had the truck off road). If the wiring there checks out, it leaves one other thing.

Dish washer does not turn on CL light stays on when reset count down 6 appears then goes to CL

Hello and welcome to Fixya,

I have a ton of service info on Bosch so it`s best I post you an exert from the service pdf`s I have on my PC which will explain the meaning of "CL" and then go from there. This is not a common indication of a control problem, but it could be a problem with the plastic casing which houses the control, we`ll deal with that later.

I`ve underlined the section pertaining to the "CL", this is for the SHU68** dishwashers only.


First depress the On/Off Button until it locks in place.

Once the On/Off Button is depressed the LED above the previously used cycle will illuminate.

To change the cycle, simply press the desired Cycle Button twice. The LED above that cycle will then illuminate.

The Cycle Countdown will display an approximate run time for the cycle chosen.

This run time will depend on incoming water temperature and the turbidity of the pre-wash water.

Note: It is normal for the Countdown Display to remain at a time increment for more than one minute, or skip a time increment depending on the calculations of the Control Unit. Also, with continued use the Control Unit will learn the wash and temperature patterns for the most commonly used programs and will then reduce the overall start and running times.

At the end of the cycle the display will show a CL, indicating that the cycle is complete.

Press the Scrub Wash and Delicate / Econo Buttons both in at the same time. The unit will then drain and the figure CL will appear in the display.**

The Delay Start feature allows the unit to be delayed for up to nine hours. To program, start the unit as described above, but after selecting a cycle push the Delay Start button. The display will show a 1h, or one-hour delay. Continue to depress the Delay Start Button until the desired delay time is reached (up to nine hours, 9h).
The unit will begin automatically once the delay time has elapsed. To reset the delay, press the Delay Start Button until it reaches 0h.

The Top Rack Only feature can be used in conjunction with any cycle. To active, press the Top Rack Only Button after selecting a
cycle, the Top Rack Only LED will illuminate and all water will be diverted to the upper wash arm for the complete cycle.

The Refill Rinse Agent LED is activated via a Reed Switch on the Detergent Dispenser, Section 4, Fig. 8-3. The LED will
illuminate when the Rinse Agent Dispenser is empty.
Service note: The Refill Rinse Agent LED will also illuminate when the dishwasher door is opened and then
closed even if the Dispenser is full, but will only remain lit for a few seconds.

An “F” in the display window indicates a filling fault.

Please note: If the door is opened during the cycle, the On/Off Button will be reset to off and must be depressed again to re-active the cycle. The cycle will resume from where it left off.

Now that you are equipped with this info, what I`d suggest is trying the **cancel option. ( ** see above )

Once you`ve tried the cancel option, select a Regular Wash and post back what happens and I`ll try to assist you from there.

Good luck.

Water pump goes through the whole cycle with door open.

You can replace the lid switch to fix it. The best thing to do is sort your laundry first from all over the house where you left the items. Make a load sized pile and place in washer along with the detergent and then turn on washer. If the switch has been straight wired it will do this. The switch on mine is straight wired and I have no problems with it. The lid switch is on there to keep small children and arms from getting hurt and broken.

The unit fails to turn on, 2day's ago it worked fine i've put it in stand by with my remote. Today it won't start i've disconected everithing, unplugged power sply for halt an hour. Still don't work...

If you don't mind resetting all of your personal parameters you might want to flush everythign and start fresh.

The manual says to Hold TONE CONTROL and PressStanby/On to turn the unit on as if you want to reprogram it.

Press Program </> to select Preset

At this point I would think we would had established that it CAN turn on or not.

If it's ON, Press STRAIGHT until CANCEL appears, then Standby/On to Cancel and turn it off.

Try to turn it on normally.

I NEED to cancel warning tones...

You cannot cancel the feature but the on-hold recall timer can be increased. This is a system programming feature that will effect all phones. You could change the timer from 60 seconds to say 240 or more. Do you know who is in charge of making programming changes for your system? You may have someone at the office or you may pay a company for adds, moves & changes. As far as programming goes, changing a simple timer is about as easy as it gets but it's still a bit complicated and would require a programming manual for your phone system (not the phone) so the first step is to find out which NEC phone system you have.
