Power interuptions are never good. If all your controls work and the door wont lock you are going to want to replace the door switch or latch whatever your manufacture calls it. Unplug it wait fifteen minutes (make sure door is shut) plug it back in (also reset breaker is cant unplug) if this dont fix it, either a control board short, easiest and cheaper repair is door switch/latch

Replaced the control board of my quiet partner

clean light flashing is a power interuption between the heater and the control often its is actually the door switches from not closing the door evenly but a chance that the heater is bad.also if you replace the main ccu it should have a software update that buypasses the fault and a good start wouldd be to reverse the door switch and test your heater for ohm values you want it to ohm out

It,s always written DOOR on my lcd oven board.The oven doesn't heat.

Hi, it sounds like one of the "lock" switches for the self clean door lock assembly may be faulty, or the oven door light/monitor switch is faulty. Is the oven light "on" ? Either that or when the unit was last placed in self clean the cycle may have been interupted by a power failure or some other accidental/intentional "cancel" command. Try unplugging the unit and plugging it in again right away. The "reset" should force the oven thru a start-up cycle, it essentially makes the onboard "watchdog/monitor" in the processor to check all the switches for the proper position and makes the lock go thru a lock to unlock position. The unit may correct itself just by going thru this off-on process. Hope that helps, let me know. Good luck

I have a front loader HE washer. The lights are

Try unplugging the washer and see if the latch disengages. I'm also wondering if the cycle was interupted (power loss) and a restart is necessary.

Oven door locked

First check to see if you activated the "child lock-out". See your manual to deactivate.

You could also try unplugging the unit, or trip the circuit breaker in your home which supplies power to the oven. Wait 5 minutes and turn power back on. This will reset the controls.

Good luck!
