Does the door lock?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The door does lock. Everything functions as normal, but the unit does not start the cycle.

Okay if the door locks, then the problem is going to be the control board is faulty and will need to be replaced.

Is there any possibility it is the door switch? The control panel was replaced less than a year ago.
