patsy, from your description this is likely a bad door switch button. See if the door and the switch line up. You may also try to recall any of the last error codes by following these steps:

Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle

Select NO SPIN

Press and hold the PREWASH option button for 5 deliberate seconds

The last stored failure code will be displayed for 4 seconds then the display will switch back to the normal selection mode. Let us know if you get any code.

I did test and got no code.


patsy, then my first fix would be to check/replace the switch button.
