Let'[s hope that is it.
These switches are made of plastic, and are really cheap.
It should be fastened with screws to the inside of the top of the machine, which you will need to open to access.
Be blessed.

Testimonial: "Thanks David. Have changed Microswitch Unit and it is all OK now. I had the same Problem with a Samsung, which is also OK now after fitting a new Microswitch, but the Samsung had burnt out where the Connector from the Loom attached to the Switch. As this was a special Connector, I had to remove it and replace it with 3 separate Spade Connectors. "

    Thanks David. I assume the Microswitch is just inside the Cabinet. Can it be accessed by removing the Rubber Seal Ring?

  • David Ellis Rhea Apr 22, 2013

    Probably you will need to open the top of the machine and take it out from the back. Be blessed.

SOURCE: whirlpool frontload washing machine door will not open after the

if there is still water in the washer you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose.Once all the water is removed from the washer you should be able to open the door.
then you need to check the drain pump for anything that may be obstructing the pump. make sure to check the hose that leads from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump.

Either the lock needs to be replaced or the microswitch. By opening the door manually, you have bypassed the disengaging of the switch. The cooker still thinks the door is open.

Whirlpool AWM8121 stops working mid cycle. Bottom two lights flashing on spin speeds.


Fault code 3 = Drain failure or not detecting empty drum.

Check pressure switch, blocked drain, drain pump.
