Where is the door switch located?

All most sure to be a faulty door light switch, The switch is on the door opening frame not the door , most times it is incased in a rubber boot, sealing it from dust. One switch to each door including the trunk.

It stops working after a few second's

Most of the time this means that the door switches are not working, maybe the door is not shutting all the way. Try lifting the door while it is running. slam the door and try it. Good luck

Have to slam freezer door to clear 88 error codes on samsung refrigerator

I am not certain on this, but my guess is that you have a problem with the door closed sensor, which should be attached to the door/ light actuating button. It may be faulty, or just out of adjustment. I assume that you have contacted Samsung about what error code 88 is. Do they have any other input? What doesn't make sense is that the fridge turns off. You would think that if the door sensor read "Open door" it would continuously run, rather than shutting off, unless it is causing an overload, or overheating condition. I have had good luck w/ Samsung tech dept., but they can be a little hard to reach. Hope this helps.

Indesit wil 153 door red led is flashing after I set washer settings, doesn't start cycle ?

The flashing light means that the machine thinks the door is not closed (The door lock switch is not activating). 99% of the time this is simply a sticky switch and the solution is to give the door a good firm slam shut (Don't get silly here, but it will take a pretty good "teenager slamming the bedroom door in a temper tantrum" type slam).

In the event that this doesn't work, then you're looking at a faulty door interlock switch. They're not that hard to obtain or fit if you're fairly confident. Drop me a comment back here and let me know how you get on. Happy to help further if the above hasn't allowed you to solve the problem.

Hello, i have toyota emina diesel 1997 auto 2.2 , door warning light always on , battery wont last long, i think its the rear door , i look every where for the door sensor located, but no luck , i think...

Sometime the switch is inside the door, under/inside the rubber cushion( seen it somewhere once). Obvioulsy the door is not properly shut. Have you tried a good slam shut. Here's another thing to look for. Check the wiring on the side door. Simetime they get hard and cut when bent. Happen to my Honda civic once. You could also be looking @ the wrong door or switch is left on @ all time from lite switch. Remove the bulbs if its such a big problem.

Keypad Problems

Sometimes a keypad may not work because the door switches are faulty. When the door switches are working correctly it will allow the keypad to operate. They tell the microwave that the door is closed and the unit is dafe to use.

Many models have 3 door switches, it's wise to get all 3 replaced at once.

Dishwasher will not turn on/ start cycle

i would ck incoming power at hook-up behind the lower access panel. maybe a wire nut loosed, if power present there next i would check the door latch switches, if they are not making contact with striker, or switch has gone bad, the machine is not recognizing the door closed and will not operate
