My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.
Please note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient.

yes if the cycle light is blinking it is in fact telling you to close the door and if the door is in fact closed then yes the most likely issue is the door switch not telling the electronic control board that the door is in fact closed .

Sure you can test almost everything on the washer!

As long as you have a Volt -Ohm meter and know to use it .
