Maytag Frontloader MFW9700S Frontloader Disaster

4/11/08 Yikes! We bought this model in October of 2007 and were quite happy with it until this week and now I'm smelling an overripe lemon!!!! The first issue occurred about a week ago when I put a small load of laundry in before I went to bed. I woke up to find a load of soaking clothes, a torn gasket and the O-ring clamp laying in the barrel. Fortunately, it is still under warranty, so I called the appliance store. Okay...the guy comes and replaces the gasket and O-ring and says we must be overloading it. :o Next load several days later...water comes spewing out during the rinse cycle. Call repairman. Tinkers with it again. Says we must be overloading it.. Yea, okay... next hour after the guy leaves...water spewing out again! Repairman coming again today. I'm smelling another lemon similar to the Neptune disaster, but I suspect I'm one of the early birds in making this discovery, on this particular model at least.

Maytag the washer quits and a f20 or f11 shows up

Its a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.

1979 Maico 250 Enduro Wiring

with Steering lock on headstock and correct tank using the plug in black connector Bosch ignition - she looks great and pulls like a train.... My problem is that I am entered into an Enduro in France (I am in England) on the 14th October and the bike must have working lights.....It has a headlight and Tail light but no wiring connecting them. There are several spare wires taped up under the tank I am quite happy to carry out the wiring I just need to know the colours to use...and how to check them I have a multimeter available. It has a horn attached and I have bought a high/low /horn switch , as well as a rear brake light switch...,I have written this motoplat instruction quite a while back: Right at the bottom is the color coding for the lightning wires.,,,

Blowing fuses

[double post]

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

But I would wait until the authorized servicer gets there (or take it to them) to maintain your warranty.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Daylight savings time adjustment

Go to:

The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).

Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.

Short version (may require three hands :-) )

DST start:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.

DST end:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.

This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.

BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source:
