You are welcome. Looking this up for you now.

Please understand that I am not the worlds fastest typer and it can take up to 15 minuets, or more, to gather the information you need and type it all up. I may also be working with multiple customers and that also can delay my reply to you.
Rest assured I will not leave you hanging. If you like reply to me and ask how much longer I will be. I'll be happy to let you know. Relisting your question will not get you a faster reply. Please bear with me and I promise to type as fast as my fingers can find the keys.
Thank you.

no hurry

Expert:  The Home Smithy replied 1 year ago.

The problem is that the door switches are not showing what they should. In other words one of them has failed and will need to be replaced.

Below is the page from the repair manual. You can test at the points indicated at the control board ot just test the switches themself.

From what I can see the switches are not available separately. Check with your local appliance parts retailers. They may be able to get them instead of buying the whole lock assembly.

 

Please let me know if you have any other concerns.
If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and you may ask all the followup questions you like, after you rate me, at no additional charge.

Thank you.
