SOURCE: Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast

Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.

I had the code E21 error (not draining) on my 2012 Electrolux EWFLS70JTS0, which I'm guessing is similar to a Frigidaire Front Load Washer. After reading about the potential causes being related to drain or pump obstructions, I decided to try forcing compressed air into the drain hose at the rear of the washer to see if I could push out whatever got into the system. So I moved the washing machine out from the wall, and pulled the drain hose out from its wall inlet. No disassembly required. Then I placed the trigger air nozzle from my compressor into the drain hose that's connected to the back of the machine, and held it in place with my hand so that most of the air pressure would go up the hose and into the machine.
Once I pulled the trigger to start the air flow it only took a few seconds to see bubbles appearing in the washer's tub. At that point it seemed any obstruction was now pushed out (where it went, I'm not sure. Somewhere in the standing water in tub I suspect).
I suppose it would be just as effective to use a garden hose with water (if you don't have an air compressor), but a little more messy. Anyway, as soon as I put it in "quick wash" mode (which starts with a drain cycle), it drained fine. 100% problem solved! No more error code. And no repair bill!. I just hope that whatever was restricting the drain flow does not find its way back into the system again. It's been a couple of days and so far, so good.

Electrolux icon duel fuel range racks red light wont stop flashing even though I removed all racks, so oven will not start self clean cycle

Good Morning Andrea,

I see that you are having trouble with your Electrolux range, model# E30DF74GPS, and getting it to go into the self-clean cycle. I would suggest giving it a hard reset. First make sure the racks are in. Next, cut the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for 2-3 minutes. After the time has elapsed cut the power back on. Start the self-clean cycle with the racks inside the oven. We're trying to get the oven to recognize the racks are inside. Once it states the racks are in, cancel out and take the racks out. Now, with the racks out start the self-clean cycle again. If you are still receiving the red light blinking, I suggest contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

Sounds like you later lens has been damaged or is dirty. There is a cleaning kit at Walmart. If that doesn't work, google a local repair shop.

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

When i put a disc ...the screen goes black and then it says error reading disc please press the eject button and turn the console off. what do i do?

The cause here is the Drive itself is ether dirty or showing signes of intermittency now the folks at can take this into consideration and have it repaired for you if its under warranty or not give them a try. Otherwise you might need to have nontendo get involved.

Playstaion 3 games wont load how can it be fixed. the clock (loading icon) stops. no errors appear no disk shows up.

listen for the disc to start spinning

if the disc spinns then its prolly just a dirty laser lens and if it doesnt spin could be a bad laser i doubt its the blu ray logic boad cause the ones i have seen that were bad the disk reading icon never stops, this has also happened on broken lenses where it never stops. ussually if it stops its bad motor or dirty lense.

My ps3 is acting up

Dirty lens on BluRay? Clean by opening Rom tray and BLASTING it with air. DO NOT TURN CAN UPSIDE DOWN or SIDEWAYS you will ruin the drive with -75degrees (crack glass lens) TKeep can of air upright and move PS3 around

Hot? Make sure you have airspace all around it

P/Supply fan not spinning? Could be packed with dust and causing fire! Give it a big blast too, but DO NOT ALLOW to SPIN FAST for long time - you will burn out bearings and ruin it. I hold it still (Power off) with long thin chinese skewer stick so it do not spin ;-)
