Water is blocked inside the machine

The warning buzzer should have sounded after 15 minutes with a warning code of "5E" on the display, if the machine has recognized the fault. Check the drain hose height reaches 90-100 cm as stated in the manual. Set the machine to spin only cycle and minimum water level:-
Press the FUNCTION button four times.
Press the START/HOLD button once.
Spin drying goes on for 11 minutes.
(When the FUNCTION button is pressed during spinning,
the spin time can be changed to from 1 to 7 minutes.)
If this doesn't work try repeating spin and reducing the height of the drain pipe gradually 10cm at a time.
Operation manual available here:
Good Luck.

Washer stops during normal wash cycle for a minute or more, and then continues. Would replacing the timer fix it?

If it actually goes on and finishes the cycle and that really bothers you replace it. If not leave it alone and allow a little more time to complete its cycle. The lid switch only keeps the spin cycle from going with the top open.

Downloading movies isn't the problem. It is saying that netflix and roku isn't connected. But how could it get unconnected? I haven't asked for any changes in my account. The screen insist that I ente

There could be a time-out issue with it. But try uninstalling it' then reinstalling it. My ps3 did that to me, where it said Netflix was not compatible. But I just had to reset the cache, and the permissions to get it going again. Hoe is that Roku box for you? I watch a lot of Netflix, when I'm not at work or busy doing automotive care. I was thinking about getting off those to do my netflix on instead of the ps3. All of my computers at the house are Mac though. Not sure if that would really matter. I could just do Apple TV instead for better and easier connectivity.

I have a Roku 3 which uses the Internet to access Netflix. My ISP gives me unlimited access during 23.00 and 07.00. Is it possible to down load a film during these hours and view it a few hours later

Netflix will only load the stream for a short time before it stops, streaming must be done live but you could pause it but doing so all night would not be of much help. Just start and hit pause 10 to 20 minutes before you really want to watch a film or show. If this is really a problem you may need to improve your internet capability either through increasing speeds, getting a plan with less throttling, or moving the router closer to or connecting directly to your devices. Other than that you could download movies and avoid the problems of streaming altogether.

With Netflix, the show stops about every two minutes to retrieve for about ten minutes.

This has more to do with your internet connection then it does your console. If your using wireless, be sure it's fast enough to handle video streaming. If your using a wired connection, Ethernet or the like, then check your service and make sure that again, yours is fast enough to handle video streaming.

As I can activate my roku that still buys not it I have been able to activate

I've never activated a roku (I presume with Netflix) but I've activated a couple of PS3 devices.
Step 1. You make sure the PS3 has network connectivity. As I have been able to tell, it does not matter what level of NAT or any of that, any activity will do.
Step 2. You start the Netflix disk. I'm sure that happens automagically on the Roku since it does nothing else. On the PS/3 it is a game.
Step 3. A code is produced.
Step 4. You log into Netflix. I have usually used my phone for this. You go to the right webpage and you enter the code.
Step 5. In under a minute, the PS3 recognizes that it is activated and it downloads your queues.
So where in the process is your failure? If it is after the serial part, call Netflix. All the comm stuff is happening, this is them declining the authorization for some reason.
If anyplace before this, then we need specifics about what you have done, what you have not done, what messages do you get and what falls.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback

Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.
