The reason for "F" flash is that if your machine doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely if it's frozen or stiff replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Thank you !!

Stuck between programs, won't drain or spin, help me please?

First, check that the machine is getting power, are the indicator lights on?
If they are not check the main fuse has not tripped and that the fuse in the plug is ok.
If you have power try moving the programmer toward the end of the cycle so that it drains the machine of water. It possibly might do this despite having issues.
The problem is llikely to be with the programmer control which might need replacement, a good technician will be able to advise if this is the case
If you cannot get the machine th end the cycle put the programmer to the end of thee cycle position and switch of at the mains. After a few minutes the door should unlock for you to retrieve you clothes. Put some towels down and have the mop ready !!
A repairman should be able to sort this issue out fairly easily at little cost

The hole is not open to put pin in rear end of 2002 camaroo

If you push your axles in towards the center of car, put the locks in place, then push your axles out towards wheel end as far as they can go (locks will bottom out in carrier) there should be room to place the pin, then lock down the screw that holds the pin in place. There should be no issue with room. If your axles are too long, then they would just stick way out at the wheel end. YOUR ISSUE MAY BE THAT YOU NEED TO TURN THE DIFF AROUND AND INSERT THE PIN FROM THE OTHER END OF THE CARRIER.

LE error after full cycle toward end of wash it comes up with an error. not sure if it LE or upside down F E? Anyone have this prob?

LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.

Washer is taking forever to go through rinse and spin. It ends with a code nd. Clothes are still wet and soapy.

HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Couple of questions from a new RS owner

#1 As these are an injected bike they do not need to be blipped on start as it reprograms the ECU to think that the slight blip setting is the normal closed according to the computer. You may need to get it reset at your dealer unless you have an OBDII or a Triumph GameBoy. #2 Change out the oil to a semi synth. Your choice on brands. I'm not starting You'll find that it will improve the shifting as they aren't the smoothest with old oil. I use Motul 15-40 semi synth myself FWIW I change mine every 5000 kilometres (about 6 months) but go on k's travelled and not duration myself.

Kenmore washing machine motor coupling

It goes between motor and transmission, underneath.
You need to remove 2 screws in console. They might be in back, on ends or in front ends. If you can't see any, they are under the console end caps. To remove end caps, pry off by pulling caps towards outside from center part of cap. Pry toward you and towards outside. Then remove 2 screws and flip console up and back. Unplug connector to washer cabinet. Remove 2 gold colored clips by inserting straight screwdriver in them and prying back. Make not of their position first. Now tilt cabinet toward you and slide forward and off base.
To replace, tilt cabinet and slide under frame in front. Now lower cabinet on to frame, making sure cabinet is on frame on sides. Re-install clips by placing them in position and pushing down with palm of hand. Plug in connector, lower console and install screws.
