HI. There are only two reasons for this type of interruption during the cleaning cycle. The first will be a fault that may exist within the main PCB. There is a relay that controls the door locking mechanism(located and mounted on the main PCB). If this control relay fails, or it is slightly defective, it will not allow for a proper cleaning cycle, due to the controls failure to send the locking command or hold the current properly. In order to inspect the relay and control board you will need to gain access to the main PCB, usually mounted on a bracket in the control panel section of your unit. Once the main pcb has been removed from the control panel, kindly, inspect for visual burn marks at the relays mounted on the back side of the board. I should point out that the relay may not show visual signs of damage, but your symptoms are a very strong indication of this type of damage in this area of the board.
Now, the next area of concern will be the actual door lock mechanism or switch. This switch is the actual mechanism that receives the energized signal from the main PCB to activate the locking of the door latch. This circuit may be faulty. i would recommend to check the connecting wiring harness for corroded contacts and proper connections to and from the main PCB. Once you have verified that the wiring is ok, move on to the testing procedure for this switch.
Door locking mechanism switch continuity test procedure:
Before repairs or further testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. OK, once you have gained access to the locking mechanism, set the latch to the "clean" position and test for circuit continuity at the terminals of the switch with your VOM's ohmmeter function. If there is no continuity, the switch is faulty. Use caution when testing.
In conclusion, if the door locking mechanism switch circuit shows good continuity, simply replace the main PCB.
