Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
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 motor 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!

I have an old Kenmore garage door opener. The door will not go down. It acts like something is in the way of the electronic stoppers, but there is nothing in the way. Any ideas.???


Make sure the door sensor are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

Garage door opener won't close. travels 6-8 in.,


If you cannot get the light on the sensor to come on by tweaking it,making sure it is pointed at the other sensor and your wiring is not broken or shorted then your sensors need to be replaced.

The code it is sending by flashing 5 times is 'RPM sensor or motor overload'. Is the door stuck in the open position?

Remote will open garage door but will not close garage door. light for electronic eye on left does not come on.


The door sensors may have been bumped. They need to point at one another to work properly. Tweak them and see if the light will come on. If not the sensor or the wiring connected to it is bad.

6 month old garage door will work.


On the back of the opener near where all those white wires go you will find 2 controls. One is labeled "up force." Increase this about 1/4 turn.
