Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The door to my unit is very much "open" and the "locked door light" is NOT ON, however the latch that locks the door in place during wash cycle is in the down or locked position. Have tried pressing the pause/stop button for several seconds and no luck, and have even unplugged the unit for 3 hours, and then when I plugged it back in ... no change ... so the problem is still that with it being in the LOCKED down position (the latch) it won't allow you to close the door securely!!! HELP!!!
Only thing I could say to you is if you remove the wire with the spring that holde the grey rubber bellows to the washer, you can remove the door lok switch, by first removing the screws that hold it to the washer. Once removed go to your apliance parts store and replace the door latch. Install in the reverse and your washer should work properly.

Es posible q tengas unproblema con el sensor de apertura de la puerta, tal vez este pegado o le cayera h2o, por eso el microcontrolador interpreta q la puerta sigue abierta y por eso no realiza la rutina de lavado, debes buscar el plano, determinar la ubicacion del sensor y verificar su estado.

It is possible that you have a problem with the door?s sensor, maybe it?s turned off or maybe some water fell on it. This is the reason why the micro controller interpret that the door is still open, and that?s why the washing procedure does not start. You have to find the manual and determine where is the location of the sensor and then see in what state it is (Turned off, wet, or damaged)

Tips for a great answer:
Your machine's latch may be blocked by something acting like the car door latch described above. It may be the switch has broken and is the "culprit".

Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
