Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the door lock may be having issues. Do you hear any humming or buzzing from the area of the door latch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no noise at all and when I press the start button the program doesn't start, the light continues to flash.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

It will flash if the door lock is not engaging. The controller will not allow the cycle to run if it does not detect the door is locked. I would look at the connections at the control and the door lock to verify all is connected.

how do I do that
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Remove the top of the machine, you should have enough access to inspect the wiring and connections.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How am I supposed to know which wires correspond to the door lock and how can I see if they are loose? This all happened after the machine wasn't spinning so I opened the filter and cleaned it out.
