When the door locks, it brings into operation several different electrical components, it sounds like one or more of them is shorting.
This is going to require further investigation on your part.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 door won't open


on some hotpoint models you can remove the front kickplate and on there will be a yellow or green plastic pull toggle, pull this and it will bypass your door lock, if your appliance does not have this then you will need to unplug and leave unplugged for 10-15 mins to reset the door lock, you will however more than likely need a new door lock

Not sure your entire question but if no cycle is chosen or running and you close the door and the power trips then it is definitely your door lock mechanism. This is located to the right of the door behind front panel. If it tripped out in the middle of the cycle and by closing the door you are restarting the cycle then it will depend on where in the cycle you are up to. Of course it can always still be the door switch itself I don't usually find them tripping the power. If the machine starts the fill but trips out it is likely the inlet solenoids. If the unit fills some and then trips it is likely the motor. If the unit fills washes and then trips it is likely the drain pump. If the unit fills washes drains and then trips it is likely the motor. Of course at any of these points it can be any of the pc boards. So if you know where in the cycle it trips this will narrow down the choices.

Maytag front loader 2000 series code LF followed instructions in manual and has no power. Outlet works


Hi, is this a new washing machine? If not, then these Maytag front loading washing machines use a paraffin locking switch in the front panel to lock the door during operation. Now, if the switch has gone south and trip the the lock switch without locking the door. Then the washing machine want turn on.

What is a parfin locking switch work is a small container with paraffin (wax) in it with a heater. When the washing machine is turn on. The control board indicate that the machine is in operation and a small amount of current is applied to the paraffin switch to the heating element. This make the parfin to expand trip the locking mechanism and locking door during operation. Keep the door lock from accidental openings. It will take about 4 minute after the washing machine has quite it running operation to open the front loader door. The paraffin needs to cool down to release the locking mechanism. stewbison

Door light flashes 4 times and can hear 4 clunks?


First measure the door lock, make sure it's fine, then ensure that there's current flowing towards the door lock. if it'll trip all the electricity out you'll need to ru very close inspection or to replace the main circuitboard
