The door switch is likely broken from slamming the door. Change it.

Malber combo doesn't start


This problem is usually the front door latch "interlock" is not engaging. This is the safety device which keeps you from opening the door and pouring gallons of water on your feet. When you close the door, if the machine DOESN'T recognize it's closed - all electricity is cut off and the machine does nothing. If the machine DOES recognize the door is latched, the latch will lock and you can't open the door (for about 90 secs after you turn it off or unplug it). Does the door LOCK when it's closed? If not, just close it harder several times. A medium "slam" almost always takes care of a "sticky" interlock - and it doesn't hurt anything.

Maytag stops in the middle of washing laundry


i think that the catch on your machine either needs cleaning behind or its failing to click into place and its lose as it would keep running and it wouldnt stop through the cycle, see if you can open up where the catch goes into and see if its connecting properly if not see if you can tighten it up, hope this helps, x

Washing machine wont start


Try unplugging the machine for 15 seconds. After it is plugged back it open and close the door several times. I know this sounds weird but it resets the safety circuit that sometimes shut these machines down. There may be some other safety reset sequences specific to the machine (you can search these on the net) if the one I told you doesn't work. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

I own a maytag neptune washing machine. It was working o.k. and suddenly it won't start. I push the start button and it buzzes and shows a message that says,"It appears the door was not opened...


Hi Debi:
First I suggest to try unplugging the unit for 60 seconds to reset the control board. If that doesn't work then open the dispenser and remove the softner and bleach container. There is a cord near the front you can pull to open the door lock. If you still have issues with your door lock after manually opening the door, you will need to order and replace the door latch assembly.

Also I could bet you need to replace your door latch assembly. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

After a power cut my washer wont work the door security light just keeps flashing! Model Hoover Vision HD


Ihave a Hoover Vision HD washing machine and the "Door Security" light keeps flashing. I have looked in the manual and it says the door is not properly shut. However the door is correctly shut and as a result the machine will not operate . The door will open or close but will not start a cycle to wash. Any suggestions please????

It has de flashing and wont start the washing load


This indicates a "door open" condition. This can be caused by the door not being fully closed, loose electrical connections at the door switch, a faulty door switch, or the gasket on the door may be creased in. Make sure the gasket isn't preventing the door from closing fully. The door switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Hope this helped and sorry for your trouble. Best wishes.

Whirlpool Washing Machine Quitting during rinse cycle


I would say that based on your problem description that the lid /door switch has a loose or faulty contact .. If you open and close it a few times..it starts to spin and yet when you open it.. it doesn't always stop the spinning.. It is either the switch or the actuator that bumps that switch.. That is where I would begin diagnosing the problem... Hope that helps..

LG Washer dryer error dE


Unplug the machine.

Plug back in (maybe 10 seconds later).

Mine had several dE messages. Unpluged, waited 10 seconds, when pluged back in, it remembered which cycle and parameters I had it on, then locked the door and continued with no problem.
