Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Answers follow!
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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!

During the spin cycle it spins correctly until the last 2-3 minutes and then it just fluffs clothes


Some machines used a variable speed slow down process to avoid clothing damage, this removes the items from the outside of the drum where if the clothing was left for a length of time after the cycle has finished it could damage the fibres, this way the clothing is also easier to remove from the machine and promotes airflow over the items

Macine stops on drying programme and F13 is displayed. What is this?


High temperature Rise In Drying cycle due to Reduced air flow through dryer heater assembly.
Check operation of fan motor and dryer filter for blockage...fluff/fibres is the main suspect i think as fibres attatch itself to the fan blade and slows the revolutions or create an obstruction in the silver dryer chamber on top of the tub beneath the lid... Good luck..

Connecting a 3Com 2952 Plus switch to a Cisco 3750 switch


If you also have a standard copper cable (or a second fibre cable) connecting the two switches (for resilience perhaps?), this issue is probably being caused by something called Spanning Tree. This is implemented on switches as a 'loop avoidance' system, and can look like you have described with one end 'ip' and the other end no lights.

On the Cisco switch, get to a telnet/ssh/console session, log in and enter show spanning-tree and press enter.

have a look to see if the fibre interface has a status (sts column) of BLK. If it has, then this is called 'blocking' and will remain like that until you remove the second link to the other switch.

Hope that this has helped!

Hoover Vision HD VHC391 saying it is full of water


My son seems to have fixed my dryer.
Although I followed the instructions about cleaning the filter after each cycle and the condenser after ten, fluff had blocked the drainage from the internal reservoir to the water collection bottle. It seems like this will be an ongoing problem, as even cleaning every time, fluff will gradually biuld up. The filter isn't good enough to stop fibres getting into the condenser and then into the reservoir behind it.
I expect that taking the cover off the reservoir to clean it invallidates a guarantee if you have one, but that is what my son did and now the dryer is working.

Excess fluff on clothes


you should clean filter after every load. If dryer is getting unusually hot (cabinet), then you may have a plugged vent line. Check where vent is on the outside and see if plenty of air is coming out of it. If not it is plugged up

Constant blank streaks on both printed and photocopy items.


Hi Wooky,

The streaks are likely only present beside a bold character or heavy print section of the doccument content.
The print head assembly is likely carrying an obscure hair or piece of fluff back and forth which is acting like a paint brush.
The offending fibre is mos likely attached to the adge of the cartridge or print head carriage assembly. Also check the dervice station where the catridge docks when not printing as it can store fibres in the capping and wiping components especially if the printer is situated low to the ground where fibres tend to fly or you have fine haired pet like a cat, rabbit or toy dog.

Best way to clean is to trick the printer to unpark carriage (open top door to trigger carriage to present itself) then uplug power. Now you can move things at will to clean up with moist cotton buds (clean water is best).

Good luck
