Hi Maria.

When a washing machine takes a long time to complete the cycle, that means that one of the conditions required to complete the cycle takes a long time before being met or detected.

In simple words this means that, depending on what part of the cycle the machine hesitates, you are in one of the following conditions:

1 The water inlet is blocked or restricted.
2 There is a water heating problem, usually thermostat not detecting temperature correctly.
3 There is a drain blockage and drain takes longer than usual.
4 The pressure switch used to detect water level is defective, and timer board does not detect that drain is complete and keeps draining for a while.

1 If possible move the machine and check the inlet hose at the back, ensure that there is pressure, that the hose is not restricted or blocked. Check also for blockage at inlet valve.

2 This must be tested removing parts from washer and using a multimeter. The job is better done by a technician.

3 You can check the drain pump. On most front loader models this is accessible opening a panel at the front lower side of the washer, under the door. On top loads the pump is accessed from behind (also some top loader), and from underneath the washer. Instructions are often described in the manual. The hose or filter housing can be removed to check for blockage.

4 Same as 2, the pressure switch is replaced when there is long drain or water level related problems.

Disconnect power before performing any maintainance.

As first step check warranty status by contacting Whirlpool at the number listed on manual. Long cycle is a fault condition, if your warranty is still valid, manufacturer will send an authorized technician at their expenses.

All the best.

Zanussi dishwasher ZDF601M 1 in 3 red light comes on and programme doesn't work through


26269906-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-0.jpg "3 in 1" function
This appliance is equipped with the "3 in 1" function, that
allows the use of the "3 in 1" combi detergent tablets.
This function can be selected with all washing programmes.
With the selection of this function the inflow of rinse aid and
salt from each respective supply container is automatically
deactivated and also the indicator lights for salt and rinse aid
are deactivated.
Select the "3 in 1" function before the set of a washing
programme.
Once this option is selected (indicator light illuminated) it will
remain active also for the following washing programmes.
With the use of the "3 in 1" function, the cycle durations may
change. In this case, in the digital display, the indication of the
running time of the programme is automatically updated.
NOTE: Once the programme is running, the "3 in 1" function
can NO longer be changed. If you want to exclude the "3 in 1"
function you have to cancel the programme setting (see
chapter "Starting a washing programme" - "Cancel a washing
programme in progress") and then deactivate the "3 in 1"
function.
In this case you have to set a washing programme (and
options) again.

Activation/deactivation of the "3 in 1" function
(The dishwasher must be switched off)

1. Press the On/Off button. The On/Off indicator light
illuminates (setting mode).If a programme button indicator light is on, this means that a washing programme is set. The programme must be cancelled: press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3
for about 2 seconds. All the indicator lights will turn off (except for the On/Off indicator light and eventually salt and rinse aid indicator lights) indicating that the set programme has been cancelled and the machine is now in setting mode.

2. Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3, until the
indicator lights of function buttons 1, 2, 3 and 4 start
flashing.

3. Press function button 4, the indicator lights of function
buttons 1, 2 and 3 turn off while the indicator light of function
button 4 goes on flashing.

4. Press function button 4 again, the "3 in 1" indicator light
illuminates, indicating that the "3 in 1" function is active.
To deactivate the function press function button 4 again, the
indicator light turns off.

5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by
pressing the On/Off button or wait about 60 seconds after
which the dishwasher will automatically return to setting
mode.

Would like to trim music to fit slides and add naration


Hello, Wren

SlideShow Expressions is a very basic programme: simplicity is the key. It is designed to give instant results. Therefore, the things you can do with the photo's, music, etc. are very limited. No frills, no complicated editing. For example: no fading in or out of music; no cutting a music track down to a certain length, etc. Also, the programme doesn't allow you to have a different time setting for every photo. Whatever duration time you select (say 9 seconds), it goes for each photo.
As a result you would typically go about adding your music tracks as follows:
After you have added all the photo's that would make up the whole slideshow, make a rough estimate of how long each photo should be displayed on the screen. Type this number in the open slot (for seconds). You can now get an idea of how long the entire slideshow will be: the duration will be showed at the bottom. Now, choose tracks that, together, will just about (more or less) account for the whole length of the slideshow. When you've added them one by one, click on the option to fit the slideshow to the soundtrack. Obviously this could change the amount of seconds that each photo will be displayed. That's about it. Play around with tracks of different lenghts and see what the time duration would be if you were to fit the slideshow to this altered track length.
Be careful about the music you use. This programme (as would many others) may develop problems when using downloaded music, because this music is usually protected in some way (for example, tracks downloeded from iTunes are known to cause problems: they may not play or sound bad).
Also, it is always good to read the User Guide. If you have a legitimate copy of the programme, the User Guide will be included on the install disc in pdf format. You can look for it by exploring the install disc or by simply clicking on the relevant link after you've inserted the install disc.

I hope this was helpful. Best of luck to you. From: 11407336.

The duration on commercial kenmore coin operated dryer isn't long enough to dry the clothes. How do i lengthen the cycle time?


Some dryers require timer cams to extend the cycles. The electronic dryers are programmable. The owners manual will tell you how to change the times. The owners manual can be downloaded at www.searspartsdirect.com.

Hello, :)


Some car Alarm(s) are wired with the cars computer system. This often is a programmable cycle. The duration of the parking could have reset the default setting. Try and re ~ install the alarm system. :)

A key has appeared in the electronic window and a zero for the duration of the programme. This happened after completing a wash cycle which was interupted and changed a short time into the wash cycle.


This is a "child lock" notification. It was probably triggered by the interruption.

See your manual to reset the child lock. If you see the child lock button, press and hold it for 3-5 seconds and it should beep to reset.
