Every now and then, the machine refused to start. We noticed that if we banged the door shut, it would start. Then it refused to start at all. We then realised that if we held the door shut for several...

Not a terribly difficult job, just remove the Top Panel (usually 2 screws locking it at the back, depending on your make & model), then you can reach it from the top. As a temporary (and cost-less) solution, you could always bridge the wires connected to it. This will allow the machine to work, but you will have to be sure to keep the door shut when it is operating (Mishaps do happen)

I am unable to give you an indication of price of the Door Lock because I have no real idea which Make or Model you are referring to.

Kind Regards

It gets through to the 40 minute part of a cycle and shuts off and unlockes door and has ol code

This kind of problem is usually when the final spin is overloaded and the overload sensor stops the spinning. But, this can also happen during the spinning at end of wash cycle. Does this shut-down occur every time? If not, then it is your load that is too much. If it happens every time, then it is most likely the overload sensor. The electronic timer could be the problem (they are more flukey than the mechanical timers) but usually you will not see OL if the timer itself is at fault. Good luck, Macgivor.

Saying to close door and we already have

When you shut the door , do it very firmly until you can hear the latch click, if it still will not start, then you could have a faulty door lock or a communication problem between boards.
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.

Keeps coming error 1

Error 1 means the door is not closed properly. Could mean the door is not shut correctly or that there is a faulty sensor.
Try shutting the door and powder tray again.

Washer on will not start

Is your inlet pipe to the machine "on"?, is the door firmly shut? Have you overloaded the machine? The inlet pipe is not clogged......

Washing machine door sensor

I must differ with you. This machine does have a computer control card located within the timer base assy. Thee 5 beeps are a response from the computer that informs of a faulty signal between the computer and the door sensor
