Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer
Door initially locks and cycle begins. Then cycle stops and door will not open. If additional pressure is applied to door at locking point, washer will reengage cycle. Have found that if I use straps with a cinching mechanism around the washer, enough pressure is applied to door to complete cycle. Is the underlying problem mechanical or electronic? If so, what part(s) do I need to replace? Thanks.

turn off all water to your washer run the washer empty for a full cycle when the cycle ends the door will release
spray a lubricant such a WD40 into/onto the door lock
the door kit will not fix the problem

Welcome to FixYa
appears to be with the door switch as initially it starts cycle and then the
control senses open door so stops the unit completely. Take a hair dryer and
blow some air on the door lock/switch assembly, if this won't help then
replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back
to me if you have any other questions.
