Wfmc3200uc keeps trying to lock door

I hear the door lock solenoid continually try to lock the door even though it locks on the first try. This won't let the machine do anything, including releasing the door lock to remove clothes. I replaced the door lock assembly and it didn't help. The door lock sensor is working because i traced the wiring up to the control board and when locked i get continuity and when unlocked it reads open.

P.S. to anyone that needs to unlock the door if the unit isn't working. If you open the round panel in the front and look up inside towards 1:00 you will see a thin green plastic string, similar to fishing line, just give a slight tug and the lock will release.

SOURCE: Door locked open

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

Could be the door solenoid either plug has come off from stretched wires from opening and closing door or the solenoid has packed up altogether.Very common on a lot of cars if fuses are all good.

It could still be the relay, if the solenoid is working but the contacts are faulty. There are also several other places in the circuit which could cause this. Follow the diagnostics from p90 on, here

Does any one know why the drivers door won't lock


The power door lock solenoid/mechanism may be bad. A bad solenoid would not keep the door from being locked with the key.

2002 door locks failed ford escape


Using a multimeter, check for voltage at the lock/unlock solenoid. Disconnect the connector and probe the unlock side with the other lead on a good ground. Hit the unlock twice and see if you get voltage. If yes, the solenoid may be defective or if not, you could possibly have a bad relay. Even though you can hear the relay, that doesn't necessarily mean it's completing the circuit. My car did the same thing and I ended up replacing the relay.
The lock side check would be the same.

Hope this helps!

Oven not working -makes a buzzing sound when turned OFF!


You just need to adjust your door latch assm. Try putting a little oil on the latch and arm. The sound you hear is the solenoid trying to pull the latch arm all the way back to lock the door. Even though it is pulling the arm back and the door locks it may not be all the way back. A little lubrication will fix the problem.

Tappan electric range door locked


Check the door lock switch/solenoids. You'll have to unplug the range/stove. Remove the solenoid and check to see if it has continuity or if the solenoids are stuck.
You also might have luck resetting the clean cycle. Even though the lock is engaged, try to open the oven door a little. Start the clean cycle, then cancel it.
