Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

the best way to find it. is to look for the door lock switch.
the door lock switch goes to a large connector on one end, and the other side of the switch goes to a line connector 3 wires in and 2 out. follow the 2 wires you will find 3 switches to this line, the last switch or the first switch on the a little loop. is the unbalance switch the other 2 are displacement switches.

Check the inbalance/lid switch for continuity.Ck speed selector switch (if any)the water level and water temperture switches for proper opreation.NOTE:If any of the selector switches on the console are only poartially pushed in,it may cause improper function.I do not know how old your washer is.TEST LID SWITCH FIRST.If above does not solve,ck timer circuits for continuity.Get ready for this:there is to much to ck with out been motor buzzing,test capacitor,washer spins but does not agitate,ck the agitator splines if they are not rhe problerm,the transmission might be the problem.GOOD LUCK.FYI I own Whirlpool washer and dryer and I repair my own,I prefer KENMORE/WHIRLPOOL/ROPER PRODUCTS because they are easy to repair and parts are not as high priced.

The washer did not spin due to continuous inbalance

Check the unbalance sensor, or inertial switch, it should be N.C., or normally closed, giving a "balanced" signal back to the control board. My unit had no continuity even when there was no out of balance, or severe shaking. If you have a voltmeter this can be tested by disconnecting the wires to the sensor and setting the meter to Ohms, it should be very low, 0-5 ohms. If it is higher than this the contacts are bad. I fixed mine by running a small electrical load through the switch, a 100 watt light bulb, with power cord that I rigged up. I shook the sensor several times until the lightbulb had power when the switch was still. This "cleaned" the contacts by running the 100 watts of power through the contacts and creating a spark. Or you could jumper the wires together and see if the unbalance condition goes away; if so, replace the switch.

Any one have any sugestions on how to fix 2004 chevey blazer extream brake lights allready replaced the brake switch checked fuses and lights nothing wrong there also tried to gigle the multy switch while...

If your talking about the light on the daskboard . What light is telling you is that there is an inbalance in the system like air got into the system . So the problem is more likely with a leak then an electrical switch . Check all aronnd your system for brake fluid leaking look at the insides of the tires at the bottoms and at the master cylinder out side by the vacuum booster control unit and also inside the cab at the top of the pedel where the rod goes into the back of the master . If brake fluid can leak out of the system then air is leaking into the system . If the air bubble travels up to the antilock system then that will need to be bleed aswell to reset the light if it hasen't then the brakes can be bleed convenitionaly but the olny time the dask light will come on is if there is an inbalance in the system and air in the system is what causes this

Camerra is not working

Hi Inbal!
Try Restoring the iPhone's software... Instructions could be found here.
If it fails to help, it is probably a hardware fault. In that case, take your device to an Apple service center.

Good luck and best regards,

Front loader shakes bad, is level, and on a concrete floor

You will have harmonic inbalance about 800 rpm on most front load machines, causing them to shake termporarily as it ramps up on the spin cycle. Be sure to check if the shipping bolts have been removed. This is the most common mistake most people make while installing front load machines. If you don't remove the shipping bolts, it will cause most machines to shake violently and can cause damage.

Bleed your brakes first, and make sure no air in lines, second check the poportional valve located after the master cylinder. follow the lines from the master cylinder to find it, last but not least abs system, run diagnostics and the code should lead you to your problem, if yu want the factory service manuals with troubleshooting guides, go to and purchase a subscription, 20.00 and you will have all manuals on your car.
