Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Hello, yes I am working on it. One sec please thanks!

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok when you press the buttons do they flash?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They light up and will flash correctly but it will not start. It has been doing this for a few weeks but it would eventually start after about 10-15 minutes, but today it will not start at all.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK see if the buttons do the exact same thing with the door open. Let me know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
they do work
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK you may just have a bad or failed door latch switch. Can you take apart the panel to get at the door latch switch and test it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we took the inside of the door panel off - how do we test it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we think that it may be broken - any ideas now?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Do you have a ohm meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the door handle is floppy and does appear to be broken? can we go by that or is that not reliable?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes that is the whole issue, here is a link to the part for you, you may just need #3 at this link as that is what normally breaks then the latch does not close right and make the switch close.
