Hello from our service,

My name is Chas, I am so happy to help you today.
Before we get started, I would like to help us get on the same page so that our interaction will go smoothly.
I might give you an answer immediately, or ask you a question. Either way, we are likely to be in a question and answer format, so you will need to click reply to expert if:
a. You want to add detail.
b. Your question was not fully answered.
c. You want to ask further questions.

Since I am inviting you back to do any of these, do not use a 1 or 2 rating or this will likely NOT help you get a satisfactory answer. It will delay our task, and it tends to be depressing for the expert trying to help you, often right at the beginning of the exchange, before we have accomplished our task.

I know the rating system is somewhat complicated, but you do not have to do a negative rating in order not to pay or to get your deposit back.

In addition, a negative rating only serves to rate the expert doing his/her utmost to help you. The expert also will not get paid under these circumstances.

Negative ratings do not cover site problems, delays, or anything else on the site that might annoy you, as experts are only involved in trying to answer your questions.

Negative ratings do not cover posts that do not come through, or any other difficulties...experts face those just as you do. This includes frustrations that you might have had before meeting your expert.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. But, it is up to your honor to click a smiley face and make sure that I am compensated for my time and effort. Please realize we are only compensated PER smiley per click and from bonuses, so extensive time with you would hopefully stimulate your consideration of this aspect of the system.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes I did but it will not go on wash it does everything else
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
will it allow you to do a rinse cycle?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I will have to double check that I think it did ,but I took the circuit board off right now I will put it back and try ,it seems to me the problem is in the motor or circuit board,I did try to spin the drum and it seems to wanna lock up seems a little hard after half a turn
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
Does it fill on the wash cycle?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No it does not on the normal cycle it only add a little bit of water about 5seconds then it goes straight to spin,no agitating of clothes
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
Check to see if the water lines on the back of the machine are clogged where they hook up to the machine..


Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm checking
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Everything it's normal so far
Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
Water is coming in for 5 seconds, have you tried different temps, like cold only and hot only?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Expert:  Chas replied 3 years ago.
I give up, I don't know what is going on, I am going to opt out and open this question to other experts, sorry about that...

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok thanks ,could you sign me on to someone else please
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for using this service. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first.

Okay does the unit actually spin? Can you see the tub spinning?
