Table saw stopped running. Will run when I tilt it forward

The fact that it runs in one position but not in another tells me that you have an electrical problem. Specifically, it suggests that you have an intermittently broken circuit that opens and closes as the position of a wire or relay is moved by gravity. However, it could also mean you have a short if a bare hot wire touches bare metal as your changing the position of the saw. If that's the case, then you'd probably see and hear some electrical arcing--one heck of a spark--when the motor stops running.

So let's assume it's an open. If you know how to use an ohmmeter, you can easily find the break and then replace the damaged part. If not, you could first begin by unplugging the power cord, removing the blade, plugging the power cord back into the wall socket, and hitting the power switch with the saw in the level (not working) position. Then start manipulating the power cord from the wall socket to the on-off switch--move it back and forth and up and down to see if one of the wires in it is broken but the broken ends can be put back into contact by these movements. If the motor starts to turn during these manipulations, replace or reattach the power cord. If nothing happens, unplug it and examine the leads from the switch to the motor to see if they're firmly attached at both ends. If one of the leads is loose, reattach it. If they look good, plug it back in and manipulate these leads one at a time like you did the power cord. It would be a good idea to be wearing some heavy insulated gloves during this procedure. If the motor starts to run, replace the damaged lead. If nothing happens, then temporarily wire around the on-off switch to see if it's damaged. If the motor runs when you do this, replace the switch.

Again, it would be far better to try to find the location of the open circuit using an ohmmeter with the power cord unplugged. If you don't have an ohmmeter, consider buying one. They're not expensive and not difficult to learn to use.

Good luck.

Wshing machine keeps filling with water

You probably have a stuck fill valve. This is the part where the hot and cold water hoses connect. Just to be sure unplug the machine and if it still fills Remove and replace the fill valve assembly. Don't forget to unplug the machine and turn off both the hot and cold water supply valves. This is a rather simple repair.
