Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time

Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

Sanyo DW-MS600F error message saying door is still open

Sounds like the door interlock switch electrical connector is failing to make a connection. You can open the panel and inspect the lock to confirm. Clean as needed (Please remove power from the unit at the circuit breaker panel before opening the door panel).

My kenmore elite 106.59966803 beeps every two minutes. Doors are shut and the unit seems to be working fine. Any suggestions?

if the refrigerator is beeping -- then this is a sign that the door switch is not working properly,loose or broken.
to stop the beeping --- press and hold the "lock/alarm" button on the control panel until the indicator light turns off. ( this turns off the 'doors open' alarm ) --- now if you get the door switch fixed and you want to turn the 'door open' alarm back on, then press and hold the " lock/alarm " button again until the indicator light come back on.

I have a Kenmore 500 that shuts off if the load touches the door from the inside or wont start unless I press the door in again after its shut. I'm assuming there is a safety switch the door touches to let...

sounds like the door catch is loose,this is what holds the door shut,when the clothes are spinning they hit the door opening it enough to reset the door switch,there's a metal or plastic tab that goes into the catch,easy to install and part is cheap money

The door on my Bosch washing machine 1605 is stuck on shut

the door not opening is normally a sign that there is still water inside if you can try a spin cycle or if you have a drain option try using that & if it was the water then the switch will trip & you should be able to open the door again.

Hope this helps

Interior lights wont go off when you shut the door have to disconnect the battery

There is a switch/button in each door frame that pops up when the door is open and gets depressed when the door is shut. One of those switches may be malfunctioning. Go around the doors and check each one of those switches for signs of damage. If you cannot see anything superficially, you will need to remove each switch to inspect it thoroughly. Start with the driver door as its get the most use and is the most likely to fail..

Dome light stays on and door open sign is on

this problem is caused by the courtesy light switch being defective in one of the 4 doors, the switch is attached to the door latch inside the door so access is not easy as the door panels must be removed, the dealer has a scan tool that can quickly ID electronically which switch is causing the problem.

My electric dryer runs for a few minutes then shuts off. You can restart it almose immediately.

Probably the door switch. Is it closing tightly? Open the door and look at the switch, is it loose or any signs of problems. Try putting some tape on the edge of the door where it makes contact with the switch and see if it makes better contact.
