OOB switches are located under the motor controller. You'll need to disconnect enough of the wires to the controller to be able to expose the OOB assembly. Either remove controller, or fold it back with some wires still attached..
Remember to pull power lead from socket before you uncover the electrics.
Good luck.....Nomess

Washer stuck in drain and spin mode

Hello. I need the model number to help you accurately. When the unit drains, can you verify water *is* actually being pumped out? This is important because no washer will spin if it can't pump all the water out--modern electronic washers have to balance the load and water is an unknown, shifting quantity. I need the model number to assist you in initiating the diagnostic mode and explaining the possible error code(s) you might be getting. I hope I helped you!

Speakers stuck in diagnostic mode, know how to get them out of it?

The user manual states to plug the sound cables into the correct sound output jacks of the sound card of your computer to get the speakers to come out of diagnostic mode. I am guessing that once a signal is picked up on the audio cables that the speaker will switch modes.

My machine stopped and made a constant beeping while the 3rd, 5th, 7th & 8th lights across the top remained on. What does this mean????

It sounds like this is a Fisher and Paykel-made top load washing machine and you are referring to the Wash Progress LEDs. The flashing of the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th LEDs from left to right indicates fault code 43 and it means the Motor Controller Module has detected that the out of balance switch is permanently tripped. The out of balance switch lever may have been stuck in the open position or the harness connecting it and the Motor Controller Module is disconnected.

Move the basket assembly as far as it can go towards the right hand rear corner of the cabinet several times to possibly lodge the lever back into close position. Raise the top cover then locate the out of balance switch at the right hand corner of the cabinet then make sure the lever is hanging freely. Disconnect the out of balance switch wire harness, if the lever is properly hanging but the same LEDs are still flashing (Fault Code 43), then join the terminals together to bypass the switch.

Reconnect power then start the machine. Replace the out of balance (OOB) switch if the machine works fine with the switch bypassed. If not, check the continuity of the OOB switch wire harness and make sure it is snugly connected to the Motor Controller Module. The problem is in the Motor Controller Module if the wire harness is intact and snugly connected but the machine still doesn't work even with the OOB swicth bypassed. Replace the Motor Controller Module if that is the case.

Blue screen on start up tech information stop:0x000000024

try safe mode, if you can get into safe mode try sys restore if still same hold the Fn key down while sys is off and then press the power button like turning the computer on to run diagnostics - if sys fails with an error code like 0142, 0143 or 0146 its hard drive failure. you have to replace the drive but if it passes the test you have to reinstall windows.

I have a Maytag neptune model mdg3000aww, and the spin cycle is not working. I have replaced the control board, yes the r11 resitor was burnt, the wax motor, yes the door lock light comes on now, and...

Did you check the out of balance switch on the bottom.I FIXED ONE LAST WEEK. All I did was push it a couple of times real hard until I heard it click. You can activate the diagnostic mode & see if the out of balance switch is activated. That is what I did after I found out the out of balance switch was activated & stuck on, I pushed it twice & it deactivated & spun out fine.

Dell B130 won't load up

Finding where the problem is.
Start windows in SAFE MODE
You will see the last file that it hangs at. Usually AGP440.sys
Disabling AGP440.sys
Boot the system - Hold F8 Key
before the METER BAR on the bottom starts

Go to the Recovery Mode -
When it ask for directory <1> should be shown (unless you have multiple boot partitions.
When in the console mode enter
disable AGP440 (or AGP440.sys)
***depends on SP level***

Exit the console and attempt to reboot normally

hope that helps
