I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a GE whdsr209 washer. Stuck on filling with water.

Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
No, really...
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
Good luck...

SOURCE: I HAVE A GE WASHER

There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

You have either a faulty door latch switch. Or the actual Button is faulty. PRAY it is the door latch switch. Because if it is not you have to replace the entire button assembly which includes the command module and LCD screen....Yikes! That is $400+

Door locks, but will not fill up with water. Alarm sounds and lights flash once every minute or so


There is a rectangular magnet attached on the inside of the drawer for the detergent. Located on the right hand side near the front of the drawer. This magnet had come loose. Some glue and caulking worked well and the washer is working fine now. Meant to post this weeks ago.

Machine won't fill with water


Check that the inlet screens on the water supply are not clogged.
Make sure the water is for certain turned on (assuring nothing has changed).

If those are not found to be the problem, then it could be the fill valve(s) or the timer control.

Reply back what you find, and I can help you further.
