Re: doorlock light keeps flashing.
Poss the interlock or the module has gone I have found that the neutral suppy on the board to the interlock can breakdown if the module has gone call an expert has these modules when new need to be configured to your machine as 1 module can serve about 10 models

hi we have a whirlpool awo3761/5 when wash is selected it goes to start but then doorlock flashes a nowt happens, i have just replaced with new doorlock this morning and with fingers crossed tryed again it looked promising but doorlock started to flash again and nothing happens pls pls help
these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.
they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.
try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.
hope this helps

sounds like there is a fault on the machine, when the timer starts clicking the doorlock light will flash a number of times, you will need to count these flashes as this will give an indication of the fault.
IF you machine is a wma39 not a wmm39a then what has happed is that you control board is blown basically.
TO check this remove the soap draw and you will c three screws remove them... TO make removing the panel easier i would suggest removing the top as well as the front panel is wedged into it.. Then unclip the board from the panel and you will c where the big wiring plug is attached that the tracks on the board are blown.. There is no point replacing the board untill you can work out what has caused it to blow because it will blow again.. Its usually the motor or the doorlock which blows the board.. Trust me i been dealing with this type of machine for years...
