Very possible the door latching mechanism is faulty because when door is closed the contacts in the switch will see condition is correct for operation and light will extinguish. With power plug pulled out, remove the lid and buy using a small screwdriver try and wedge the doot latch open from the inside. Possibly it will need to be broken off to remove. Once off, door will open then replace with new one.

Whirlpool AWM 6100/s Front load washer


Sounds like the front door switch has come out of place, or the actuator is out of place. If you can take the front cover off to get to this switch, you should be able to get it back into place pretty easily. Hope this helps, chad

Light flashes on gargage door and it will not close, but it opens


Maybe it's the safety device that prevents the door closing if there is an obstruction. Many of these have a reflector mounted near the floor on one side and an infrared light on the other side. If either end it obstructed, the door won't close.

Whirlpool AWM 8143 - Starts a cycle and then starts flashing open door light and won't go further. Door is shut properly. Tried turning it off at the power and back on to no avail.


This is either a problem with the door lock itself or most probably a motor failiure as the door open light also indicates some kind of motor problem. If your appliance is 4/5 years and above then you will most likely need to change the set of carbon brushes on the motor and this will solve your problem

Changing brushes on whirlpool awm 8145/3. Washing machine stopped working and ''door open'' light keeps coming on and cycle stops. Cannot locate brushes to see if changing would help.


this door open light has nothing to do with the motor brushes its the door switch/s there are two of them try pushing your knee on the door if it starts working again change the switches and the brushes go into the motor?
