Look in the dispenser for a green nylon cord - looks like weedeater line. I believe it's green but can be another color. Pull it. This is the emergence release and will allow you to get your clothes out. Chances are you have a bad wax motor and control board. Check control board for burned resistor. Your looking at a 3-400 fix. Otherwise, look on ebay. You can buy a kit for cheap and do the repair yourself if you know how to solder.

My Panasonic 1300w microwave will not turn off. It doesn't cook but won't turn off without actually unplugging it or opening the door and leaving it open. Any help?

You may have a shorted door switch or a shorted relay on the control board.

You can see a help file on door switches here.

Dryer wouldnt turn on its saying door is open

most of the time. its the door switch that causes this. if door is closed and it does not start, its the door switch. try this! unplug power, remove the door switch, hook the wires from switch together. this will make a complete curcuit.put black tape on wires so it wont short out. plug back in. it should work, if it runs ok door switch is bad. good-day !

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the

Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

Unplugged, Then allow 1 or up to 5 hour then open, if not get screw to open the compartment door. check all side of the compartment door. avoid so much full content to your ice maker refrigerator, and always give a free space to the compartment door.

It keeps on sayin my access door is open but my printer doesnt have a rear door

Access door is usually the one that opens to allow the insertion of new cartridges. Try opening and closing that one and restarting the device after completely unplugging from the mains and waiting 30 secs.

My front loader door is locked and will not open, I have tried to restart, unplug and everything the machine is turned off and the door still will not open.

First unplug the washer. Remove the front valance under the door (three screws at bottom front of machine) reach up inside by the door lock area and there will be a plastic tab, pull that tab down and that should unlock the door.

Kadak Easy Share 5300 printer. Screen reads "Please wait"-stuck

Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.

Auto headlight feaature not working

Before you go into any extensive electric workup, you should first check the trigger on the door to see if it is defective. It happens often in ice cold weather on old vehicles. It is a little black mushroom held by spring on the frame where the door has contact with. Wiggle it a few times to see if it turns the lights off.
