Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If I am understanding you correctly this is at the end of the spin cycle.

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.


It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

The door lock light remained on and the elements won't heat up.

Hello- Sounds like a door switch. If power is shut off and turned on again, lock motor should cycle back to 'open' . If not, one or both switches could be bad. Control boards are rarely the cause of lock light on. Switches are difficult to get to and check. A good tech should have these parts close at hand. If you choose to repair yourself, we can help. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- ED

How do i close applications on the main page on a samsung jet mobile?

Basically to get rid of any reminiscent widgets (like if you were playing music and the widget still is in your desktop), just drag the widget you want to get rid off into the sidebar (the side bar will automatically expand when you drag the widget into it, and your widget will minimize and insert itself into the side bar).
Now the widget is officially closed .

Enjoy :) Ed

Brake light on dash won't turn off.

I just had my brakes done (all 4 rotors replaced and brake shoes) on my 99 Camry, and when I took it for a test drive, the Brake light was on. The way I got rid of it was by disconnecting the battery for a minute or 2. It reset whatever was causing it to stay on.

Hope this helps.
