If spin and agitate don't work on cycle while on or is erratic and the door stays locked I would replace the motor control unit as the high speed portion burns out or vibration kills the integrated circuit.

Mother board heats up and computer does not start


Does it start up at all ? Will it start up in Safe mode ?

Heat will cause computer components to expand sometimes not being able to make connecting to the hard drive. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ Motherboards can go bad for many reasons, although there are a few common culprits. Among the most common causes of motherboard failure are excess electrical shocks, physical damage, or excess heat. Some of these dangers are inescapable, and may vary in likelihood depending on your computer model. Fortunately, there are some simple steps to protecting the computer's motherboard, or mainboard, as it might also be called.

Signs of a Failing Motherboard Detecting the difference between a failing or failed motherboard and other failing components can be difficult. This difficulty arises because all the components of a computer are plugged into the motherboard. Thus, if you are having trouble seeing the screen, it could be that the motherboard is failing or that the video card is failing. For this reason, any part of the computer failing can be a sign of a motherboard failure. However, there are some more specific indications that the failure is the motherboard. These include the system randomly powering down, all the components of the computer powering up without a live image appearing on the screen and only certain components of the motherboard working. b> Causes of a Failing Motherboard b> As with most computer components, the most common culprit when a motherboard fails is heat. All computer components are particularly sensitive to heat, and the inside of computer can become quite hot. Over time, this wears out the motherboard and can lead to its failure. A second common cause of motherboard failure is electrical damage. Commonly this occurs during computer maintenance such as installation of new peripheral devices. During maintenance, if the technician has static electricity built up on his or her hands, it can discharge into the motherboard, leading to a failure. Electrical surges, such as those created by lightning striking a power line, can also lead to motherboard failure. This is most commonly prevented by using a surge protector, but some surges are powerful enough to overpower the surge protector and destroy the motherboard. The last common cause of motherboard failure is physical damage. This can be in the form of water damage or actual physical impact. Although the motherboard is typically well protected, a strong enough hit to the computer case or the introduction of water into the case can lead to motherboard failure. b> Diagnosing Motherboard Failure b> Determining that the motherboard is the cause of a particular symptom can be difficult. Although specialized tools exist to determine if a specific component has failed, the easiest method for determining which components are damaged is a simple bench test. This does, however, require having a second computer, or at least extra components. The method for this is to determine what possible causes could lead to the symptoms of motherboard failure. For example, if the system shuts down randomly, it could be the motherboard, the power supply unit, or connecting cables. In this case, you could plug the power supply unit into another system that is known to be working and if the problem persists on the other system, then the power supply unit is the likely cause of system instability. Similarly, if the computer powers up but fails to display an active screen, you can move the video card into a second, working computer and determine if the video card is bad. Then try using the good video card from the second computer in the damaged computer to determine if it is only the video card or if it is also the motherboard. Although this method is not foolproof, it is effective. b> Preventing Motherboard Failure b> A few simple steps can be taken to ensure the motherboard does not fail. While a motherboard may fail anyway, simply due to age or unforeseen circumstances, it is less likely to fail if you take a few simple precautions. First, ensure the computer is in a stable location where it will not be knocked over and will not be likely to have liquid spilled on it. Second, if any maintenance is performed that will expose the motherboard, use an antistatic wrist strap or discharge any static electricity before working in the computer by touching a grounded metal object. Third, keeping the motherboard clean and free of dust can ensure that it continues working, although some computer manufacturers do not allow the users to open the case during the warranty period. Last, ensuring you use a quality surge protector can prevent the motherboard from being destroyed by power surges. b> Laptops Laptop motherboards are more exposed to damage than desktop motherboards. Although they tend to stay cleaner, they are more likely to be exposed to heat due to the small case. They are also more likely to be exposed to impact since the computer is being regularly moved. When transporting a laptop, it is crucial to use a case designed for laptops that will prevent blunt forces from hitting the laptop. Also, many laptops have vents on the back and the bottom. As cooling the inside of a laptop is much more difficult given the confined space, ensuring that these remain unblocked while working on the laptop is critical. Learn where they are on your laptop and ensure you leave them unblocked while working and the laptop's motherboard should be effectively cooled. Hope this helps.

Computer stop after 10 seconds,motherboard maybey


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit


hope this helps

Stop working during a wash cycle, power was at the plug


ince the washer is stopping during the fill, wash and rinse cycles, it is possible that you have a failed timer. A loose wiring connection could also cause this problem. Before replacing the timer, I recommend that you unplug the washer and check the wiring connections on the timer for a loose wire. Check the wiring connections on the water level pressure switch as well.

Moffatt washer is washing and draining but not spinning out the clothes

> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water
