Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The door switch is likely faulty and will need to be replaced. It may also be a control issue but more likely the door switch. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
