Door will not lock light stays on


Usually this is caused by the door being bent, the hinges being bent, or a worn out door strike/catch not holding the door tightly closed. Lol, got kids?? Mommy's little helpers love to lean on the doors(the ones that open/close vertically). Also, slamming the dryer door can break the little plastic arm attached to the door switch--I see MANY switches with the arms broken in-half or the strikes/catches damaged from slamming. Usually a relatively simple repair to replace the strike/catch.

Door lock wont engage


YOU MAY HAVE BROKEN THE BUTTON, A SMALL PIN LIKE PUSH BUTTON THAT PUSHES IN TO LET THE DOOR LOCK KNOW THE DOOR IS SHUT. YOU CAN USUALLY FIND A SMALL DIAMETER OBJECT LIKE WHAT IS IN A RETRACTABLE BALL POINT PEN TO SLIP INTO THE HOLE WHERE THE BROKEN PIN IS AS A TEMPORARY REPLACEMENT AND TO CONFIRM THIS IS ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM. IF IT IS, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY FOR PERMANENT REPAIR. DON'T SLAM THE DOOR SHUT BECAUSE THESE PARTS ARE MADE OF PLASTIC AND BREAK EASILY!

almost certainly the door interlock faulty. fairly cheap part and easy to replace.
remove plastic clamp holding door boot to cabinet and peel back in the area of the door interlock. door lock is held in by 2 screws from outside which undo and withdraw lock. disconect electrical plug and small diameter tube at bottom. fitting new one is just the reverse

Dryer won't start


possibly an issue with the door lock/latch macha nism. not recognizing the door being closed.not an easy one to trouble shoot this way but id look into the a few basics, is the door closing fully? is the catch /latch assy on the door intact??? and lastly appox 3 inches up on the unit itself above where the door lock hole is, theres supposed to be a small black "buttin" for lack of better term. that "button needs to be depressed by door when closed, if for some reason its broken off so you cant push it in, (p roblably sticks out a quarter inch or so) if thats not there youll need to replace the atch assy

I don't know if you are still having a problem with your washer, but a new door lock is needed to put it right.
