Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The door switch is often times overlooked when reassembling. This is probably the case with your machine. Did you connect the door switch back up? May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
