Sounds like the front door switch has come out of place, or the actuator is out of place. If you can take the front cover off to get to this switch, you should be able to get it back into place pretty easily. Hope this helps, chad

    Just to clarify, this is the switch that tells the machine that the door is closed. And the actuator will be on the door, and come in contact with the switch when the door is closed. It could be either the switch (inside the front cover) or the actuator (on the door).

That is either a faulty timer control, or more probably a faulty door latch.

I think you need to replace the door latch.

    The door latc has a sensor that tells the control board when the door is not closed.

    Most likely the problem is a defective door latch sensor.

    Try using a pen tip to play with the sensor, if that does not work , replace the door latch.

    You can buy replacements here.

Whirlpool AWM 8143 - Starts a cycle and then starts flashing open door light and won't go further. Door is shut properly. Tried turning it off at the power and back on to no avail.


This is either a problem with the door lock itself or most probably a motor failiure as the door open light also indicates some kind of motor problem. If your appliance is 4/5 years and above then you will most likely need to change the set of carbon brushes on the motor and this will solve your problem

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Thanks for your question.
