Customer Question
I have a GE Profile...
I have a GE Profile Model PFWS4605LOMG the door latch went bad and stayed in lock mode could not open had to force it. I replaced the switch. now the washer seems confused.
when I start it up it goes through its check cycle, locks the door but the read out says door unlocked. I hear the latch click several times as if it is trying to lock it then it goes into a pause mode and the start button starts flashing and the door unlocks. when I press it
it goes through the same cycle, its almost like it is one program step out of sync. or stuck in the program it had when the door lock seized. Is there any way to reset or what else can I check
