Thank you. One of the door switches has failed. In the diagram at the link below, the number 1-4 switches are the ones you need to replace. I would replace both of them.

The link below is to the part you will need!

Access to those switches is gained by removing the screws from the back and bottom edges of the outer cabinet. Slide the cover back and lift it off. The switches are just behind and to the left of the control panel.

If you would be so kind, would you please remember to rate my service USING THE STAR SCALE at the top or the bottom of the page before you leave today? You may post back at anytime with follow up questions. Please let me know how I may earn your 5 star rating! Thank you so much!
