That is either a faulty timer control, or more probably a faulty door latch.

I think you need to replace the door latch.

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

SOURCE: washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut

Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.



Hope That Helped;

try pressing stop or cancel button for 10 full seconds. If this does not work, unplug the machine for 10 minutes. While unpluged, press and hold cancel or stop but for 10 seconds, then plug machine back in. If it still does not work, test the door switch with an ohmmeter to make sure the door switch is not faulty.

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?

LOC code flashing on washing machine


Pressing the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds worked. For me it happened this way: on the first attempt, with the indicator lights already "timed-out" and off, pressing and holding the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds caused the lights to come back on and flash the "LOC" code again. But holding the options and select buttons together for 5-10 seconds a second time caused the indicator lights to stop flashing, and allowed me to start the cycle.
