I would check that the door closes properly into its latch,if that is ok i would check the door switch ,if the control cant sense the door switch is activated itll just beep..open the door and push the switch in manually..otherwise it may need to be checked with a meter
If neither of these works, does that mean the switch is bad?
from what the issue is i would suspect the switch as the problem but to be 100% it would need to be checked with a meter for continuity between the terminals when switch is pushed in..to test for sure..but ive had that same issue and its been the switch ,but im not there
make sure the male end fits properly in this door catch, and its not bent,it goes straight in also
my husband says he hears the door click when closed, so he feels the door is catching properly
if you push the switch by hand do you hear a faint click as well?
yes, it clicks and the light goes out
thats why there is 3 terminals ,1 for the lite ,other one is for the power to start the dryer
besides the 2 beeps, is there any other noises? like a humming ?
it sounds like a switch to me ,or the board is defective, the board is quite expensive..just from having that same issue in the past makes me think it is the door switch..if you had a meter and removed power from the dryer took the switch out and checked it for continuity could you tell for sure
ok, thanks for your help. we'll call a local repair man tomorrow. have a good night.
