Door will not stay shut


There has to be some sort of spring on the door latch assembly that keeps the door closed. If broken or no tension the door will not latch and spring open. And when the door springs open, a safety switch shuts the machine off.

you should not be able to open or close the door with the washer ON. You must first shut off machine before closing the door, then turn the machine ON, this should lock the door closed. to open the door, you must shut the machine OFF, then the door should open easily.

hello,

There is disclosed a method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus
for a washing machine that includes the steps of determining whether or not there is an error in
an automatic door opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to open or
close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous operation has been
repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the door; and when erroneous operation has repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the door.
1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of: determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the washing machine door; and
in the event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the washing machine door.


2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.


3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.

4. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: clearing the number of errors in the case where the door of the washing machine has been opened or closed manually at the time of occurrence of the errors.


5. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein said predetermined number is 3.

6. A method for controlling the operation of an automatic door mechanism in a washing machine, said method comprising the steps of: sensing a command to automatically open or close a washing machine door;
sensing whether a failure occurs in opening or closing the door in response to the command to automatically open or close the door;
incrementing a counter indicating the failure;
determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the counter exceeds the predetermined number.


7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.


8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to automatically open or close the door.

9. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: clearing the counter if the door is opened or closed manually following a failure indication.

Older maytag dryer: rewiring help


If it is a usual door switch, it is simply OPEN or CLOSED (the switch im talking about ... not the door.) Translation, it doesnt make any difference. When the wires are connected in the switch, the machine thinks the door is closed. When they are apart, the machine thinks the door is open.

Make sense?

(Maybe)

Two wires one switch it is a 'switch leg'

If I read this incorrectly, please tell me. (I answer the belt question all the time ... I usually remind people to be careful of the door switch ... )

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.

U 1 error message


U1 is a right cover open error. So either that cover is not closed all the way, the tab on the door itself is not hitting the sensor that detects if it is closed, the sensor itself isn't working properly and lastly it could be board malfunctions. Most times on this model it is either a broken tab on the door or it is not shutting correctly. The front door has to be completely shut before the right door will shut. If you are looking at the right dooor straight on the sensor is at the bottom left corner of the machine. There is a little **** in the plastic that is where the sensor is. There is a piece of plastic on a spring that is on a guide that slides back when "triggered" some times that can come off the guide.
Hope this helps.
