Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. ANSWER:First replace the door switch on the unit and also check the wiring to the door switch and if that does not correct the issue you will need to replace the main board on the unit to stop it. Sometimes the input signal from the door switch is not read correctly by the board if you are having a primary hardware failure on the main board , then you get the alarm. The only way I receive any credit at all for my time is by you selecting a STAR USING THE 5 STAR or VOTING RATING SYSTEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE before you leave for me so please make sure you are rating me not another tech. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks GURU
