Check and see if you are getting voltage to the motor. Then check if the timer motor has continuity. If it is good you want to check the dryer sensing control board or the thermostats.

    Look for the dryer's metal sensing strips. Clean the gunk off of them real good.They may not look exactly like this and could be mounted under the filter or opposite side the drum. Look fer em. If your dryer has a small dryness sensing board yank it out and clean the contacts real good. You may not even need any parts. Other dryer styles redirect the power to the timer motor when the heating element is not on through the temp controls. If you have no sensing strips you probably have a bad limit or control thermostat or both.

How to reset driver window motor in 2006 BMW 750


Press the window 'open' switch beyond the second switching position. When the window has reached the lower final position, operate the switch for at least 15 seconds but not longer than 25 seconds. Then let go of the button and immediately pull the switch beyond the 'close window' position. Do not let go of the switch! The window now moves into the top final position, stops, then moves to the lower final position, stops again and then moves back to the upper final position. The switch must be held in the "pulled beyond engaging point" position during the entire procedure. Once the window has reached the upper final position, the initialisation is complete.

Dryer stopped working?


  1. From the top of the dryer, remove the lint trap. Using your screwdriver, unscrew the assembly that houses the lint screen and remove it from the dryer, setting it aside.
  2. Using your screwdriver as a lever, insert it under the front right side of the dryer, between the top and the body. Press down to force the top slightly up from the body. Repeat this process on the left side, and lift the top off the dryer.
  3. Remove the lower panel from the dryer by inserting the screwdriver into each side and rotating to release the clips that hold it in place. Slide your phone book under the now-exposed dryer drum so that the drum will be supported.
  4. Loosen the screws at the bottom of the front cover, but do not remove them (this allows access to the belt without requiring you to remove and replace the entire front cover). Move to the top of the dryer, and remove the screws holding the front of the dryer in place. (These will be located at the top, behind the front.) Tip the cover toward you, exposing the drum, and slip the broken belt off the drum without fully removing. Slip the new belt over the drum, and lift up on the drum while returning the cover to the closed position. Replace the screws to the front cover and tighten the lower screws. Remove your phone book from its position under the drum.
  5. Check the rear drum seal to the back of the dryer, and position the new belt identical to the old, with the textured side facing down.
  6. Directing your attention to the motor area, remove the old belt and feed the new belt through, passing the entire belt, doubled over, under the idler pulley. Push the belt toward the motor pulley, placing the belt around it, and allow the tension to release on the idler pulley.
  7. With your hand inside the dryer drum, rotate the drum counterclockwise to ensure that the belt has been properly installed. Replace the top of the dryer, exerting downward pressure for a snug fit, followed by replacing the lint screen assembly, and the lint trap, and then replacing the lower front cover.
  8. Run the dryer for several minutes to ensure that the dryer is operational and that you have installed your belt correctly.

How do i set the day of the week on my Invicta subaqua noma 6125?


For Invicta chronographs to set the day you need to pull the crown out to position 3 (2nd click after releasing the crown/ furthest crown position/ same position to adjust time). You can only set the day by rotating the crown clockwise. Every 24 hours of clockwise rotation will move the day indicator forward 1 position (Mon>Tue, Tue>Wed, etc). If your watch is set one day ahead of the correct day (Its Tuesday but the watch displays Wednesday for example) you will need to rotate the crown clockwise through the entire remainder of the week in order to get to the correct day, you CANNOT rotate the crown counter-clockwise in order to move the indicator back a day.

Dryer stops but the timer continues on


Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

One of the 3 arm or flip in dryer is very loose


Remove the top of the dryer by removing the four screws in the back. the entire top should slide forward an inch allow you to lift and pivot the top off to the side. it will not come off entirely because of electrical wires. with that moved off to the side you should see the top of the drum. reach in the front door of the dryer and rotate the drum so that the loose blade is at the top. in that position you should be able to tighten the screws.

Washer is shaking violently when it is time for the spin cycle


Check to see if all shipping blocks and bolts were removed. Refer to installation and setup instructions for your model.

I once moved into an apartment furnished with washer and dryer. The washer had worn holes in the vinyl flooring and a neighbor said the previous tenant made her son sit on the washer to hold it down. I investigated and found the shipping bolts were still in place. The tub, which is supposed to be able to swing, was rigidly held in place, so the entire machine danced around the room!

Doesn't stop


The problem is probably the plunger switch that you press to start the dryer. If you select the OFF position and then move the dial to a cycle, does it start running without you having to press the start button? If so, that switch is your problem.

If you disconnect the dryer and remove the rear panel, you can unplug the switch and repair it yourself (the contacts probably just need to be adjusted) or you can replace it. Depending on the dryer you might be able to get the part number from the inside cover of the rear panel.
