Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

A double beep when you press start means that the washer thinks the door is open. You'll need to make sure all the wires are still securely connected to the door latch assembly. If the door latch is plugged in securely, the latch will need to be ordered and replaced to resolve the issue I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the latch you'd need to order and replace for your model.
