I suspect the start capacitor on your motor has failed.

Remove the back of the machine and inspect the motor to find the start capacitor. Contact your local appliance parts place to see if they have or can order a replacement part for you.

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.


When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

Why does my dryer keep turning itself off before end of cycle?


If the dryer makes a motor growling noise at start up and shut off a short time later then it is probably a bad motor bushing and that will nessesitate a motor replacement. Bruce

My tv turns off by itself and makes a clicking noise


Most likely it has some bad capacitors in the power supply. Flat--panel sets are VERY hard on capacitors, due to the fact that the "rising heat' from the set "cooks" the caps and they fail VERY early.

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise


its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.
