is the door lock light on when this gets to spin?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
We have not noticed either way. That is something we can look for. Is this common that the light/ latch are connected with the spin cycle
Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
yes i think the interlock switch isn't engaging on the door lock assembly so when you bump it kicks in,
