Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It's possible. I would gently suggest as a first step that you check and clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. Here are my complete 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!

My HP D1560 Deskjet Printer keeps blinking and computer says Cartridge Problems but I have refilled my ink cartridges like I have in the past---what do I do ? It won't let me print ? Ahhh Help


First of all understand what is cartridge the you can solve your problem your self in future if related same: The cartridge contains two parts 1. ink tank, 2. Pen(electronic nozzles controlled by mother board).. Ink tank contains ink & main source to pen to write,.. if ink is over you wont get any image.Ink is there but pen is not writing then no use..both conbination has work to gether to create image..As you said ink is there, but pen is not working due to ecetronic nozzles are faulty & this information with mother board, that's why its indicating that replace the cartrdige..And we can't repair it because of micro technology.
See fig: 1. Container, 2.Nozzles. 3. Electronic contacts to control nozzles..

How do you refill the black HP 940 ink cartridges? Where is the hole?


While "Solution #1" is true for the older cartridges like the 96 and 57 (I have filled many), the 940 is completely different.
First of all you turn the cartridge upside down, cut the label in between the 940 and the colored rectangle. This simply allows you to pop the cover off (it will still be held by the back label).
Once open, you will see a stem with a silver ring on top, an oval black rubber plug, and the refill hole with a very small rubber ball plugging it. To refill the cartridge you must get this small rubber ball out. You can you a sewing needle or some other sharp object. Be careful not to damage the plug too much - you must put it back in and it can not have a hole throught it. You fill the cartridge through this "port" once the ball has been removed. Then you put the rubber ball back in - use a ball point pen to push it in so you do not damage it.
If you damage the ball, you can purchase more, but obviously you cannot use this cartridge while you are waiting to get a new ball.

My Calypso machine is giving me an error code FL. This has happened in the past and with enough unplugging and restarting it has corrected itself but not now.


My memory isn't as good as it used to be, but with this faut code on the Calypso, I would look for something caught in the pump. Take a flashlight and look in the suction port of the pump. Make sure that none of the blades on the impeller are broken or missing and that the impeller moves freely. If not, the pump will need replaced. No matter how hard we try, things make it into the washer (like coins, nails, pens/pencils, etc). Some small things can get to the pump and can damage the blades on the impeller. Hopefully, it is just something clogging the pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Can I refill the original ink cartridges on my HP Officejet Pro 7500 Series Regards Dontacho


Step 1) Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill such as a sink. Be sure that you are wearing old clothes, since the first time you fill the cartridge, you will probably get some ink on your clothes and hands. You may wish to wear rubber gloves if you don't want to stain your hands. I also don't recommend refilling as a family project. Step 2) Look at the cartridge. Near the bottom of the cartridge you will see a horizontal break line in the plastic where the two parts of the cartridge snap together. Step 3) Using a sharp knife or scissor blade, cut the label on the front of the cartridge along the line where the two parts of the cartridge come together. Step 4) Using a knife,screwdriver, or just your hands pry the cartridge open along the line. Let it hang by the backside label. Step 5) The exit port is the point where the ink comes out of the cartridge. It has an obvious stem. Place this stem to your right. Step 6) You will also see a rubber oval-shaped bulb. To the left of this bulb is the fill hole. You will see a small ball in this hole. Stick a pin or the end of a sharp knife into this ball and pry or lift it out of the hole. (Saundra recommends a sharp steak knife. (*** Don't stab or cut yourself!***) Don't lose the ball! Step 7) Fill your syringe bottle with the appropriate ink. You'll need about 30 ml (1 full syringe bottle) for the regular cartridges, about 75 ml (2 1/2 syringe bottles) for the high capacity black cartridge. Step 8) Insert the needle 1/4 to 1/2 inch (5-10mm) into the fill hole. Be careful not to puncture the bag, especially if you have a sharp needle. Step 9) Inject the ink into the opening. Step 10) Tilt the bag so that the opening is at the top. This will let the air bubble up and out. Step 11) Using the syringe, suction about 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) of ink and air frothy mixture out of the top of the bag. Step 12) Inspect the ball. If it has been damaged, you should use a new ball or the damage may cause a slight leak. (We have additional balls for sale.) Step 13) Replace the ball in the cartridge. Saundra says, "The tip of a retracted ball-point pen is ideal for this." Step 14) Turn the cartridge upside down (stem down) and gently squeeze to check for leaks.
If you see a leak there are three possible problems.
1. The bag inside the cartridge has bursted or is punctured. There is no fix for this: the cartridge is dead.
2. While refilling you allowed ink to escape and get on the white collar surrounding the exit port, bulb and fill hole. The ink has now leaked between the bag and the sides of the cartridge. Even though this is usually only a small amount of ink it will act like you poured an entire pint in there! The solution is to remove the bag. Please do this over the sink. As you are looking at the cartridge you will notice that the sides are long ovals. Hook your thumbs inside the ovals and pull as if though you are going to pull the cartridge apart. You will see two plastic tabs. Release one and then the other. Using the bulb frame as a gripping point, pull straight up and lift the bag. This will be messy. Rinse the outside of the bag and the inside of the cartridge shell. Try not to get water on the copper chip while you are working. Using an old towel or a paper towel, dry off the bag and dry out the inside of the cartridge.
3. You have not pushed the ball into the hole securely. Push it in again and wipe up the excess ink. Squeeze the cartridge to make sure you have it sealed tightly before putting it back in the printer.
If there are no leaks insert your cartridge into the printer and print.
The light on your printer warning you that the ink is low will remain ON. This is normal. Do not panic: just see if it prints

How to remove ink from dryer


None of the chemicals you describe should be used. The heat or spark from the motor could cause a explosion.
Put some old laundry material in there and run it multiple loads with no heat it will eventually wear it off.

My Cross pen fell on the floor and won't work


was it a ball-point or ink pen tip???
if it is ball-pint. then all you have to do is get a refill cartridge from any of the office supply store or specialty shop.
if it is a fountain pen tip, then you have to send it back to cross for repair.
