Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT 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!

All Cycle Lights on with one blinking sometimes working often not working.


1) tight the connector wires very well and clean with spray contact, of course unplugged the machine
2)resolder all point from the board for colder joint
3) Try again.
4) If the problem persist the problem is the board defective.
5) Call some service tech.
God bless you

I have a 91 Buick Century that dies after a few minutes.


Fuel or ignition problem? Right after it dies, check for spark at a plug. A bad coil will often work till it's warmed up, then fail. If you still have ignition spark after it dies, or if it starts right up again, then it's something else.
Check the fuel pressure to make sure it's at proper pressure. Also scan the computer for any trouble codes that are related. It's easy on your car if you understand how the flashing light translates to two-digit number codes. Use a wire or paperclip to bridge terminals A and B of the diagnostic test connector protruding out from bottom of dash. It's a 12 pin connector. A and B are the two upper right terminals on it. Now turn key on and the check engine light will begin blinking the codes. Code 12 is diagnostic mode-one blink, pause, pause,blink, pause blink. See? 22 would be blink, pause, blink, pause, pause, blink, pause, blink. See? 33 would be three blinks, short pause and then 3 rapid blinks. (I"m going blink crazy!) Well, get the codes-they are two digit codes, and will keep repeating, lower numbers first and in succession, over and over while in diagnostic mode. Maybe an idle sensor fault will show up.
Good luck.

Tv turns on then turns off and the standby led starts blinking


Standby light blinking is sign or internal problem in tv and how many times it blinks is error code that will show what section of tv got problem. Count light blinks and let me know, there would be 3 seconds long pause in blinks so count pause to pause.

My KDF-42WE655 will not turn on . The green start up light comes on and I can barely see the tv come on . After a few seconds the red light starts blinking and does not stop. The screen never comes on ....


Hello! When was the last time you replace lamp in your TV? If long time ago (2+ years) - replace the lamp. If red light blinks in sequence (example 4 flashes, pause, 4 flushes, pause and so on) - then I need to know how many flushes between pauses. It is an error code. If it blinks just constantly - it is a bad lamp. Regards. Russ.

Green light comes on then goes right back off.


The TV indicates an error code 22 (short circuit protection). Check 2 STK392-570 convergence IC for shorts and 5amps pico fuse for open. I usually replace both STK's.

Sony Wega


Please count light flashing again. Light flash time is "0.3 Sec" and there would be pause (light Off time) for "3 Sec". Start counting after pause to next pause.
