Hi, when this happens it usually is because one of the three door switches is shorted. Behind the control panel you'll see a small plastic bracket. It has three switches on it. Usually the bottom on is the culprit. If you have a meter, test the switches and see which one is broken. If you do not have a meter, you can get generic switches from the local parts house for a few bucks each.
