Washer door would not lock / run. It just beeped twice.
Unplug the washer power cord. Take the screws off at the top (behind the front panel). Take the bolts off at the back (just the ones at the top). Remove the top cover. I'm going on memory here... Take the dial / knob off the front. Make sure the bottom of the control panel is free so the it's lip does not block the front panel (where the door is at). There may be a couple more screws to free the control panel. Take the panel off the front of the bottom (just above the pedestal if applicable). Take the screws out at the corners of the front panel (where the door is at). Open the washer door and take out the screws to free the front panel. The front panel is also hooked on brackets, so you will need to slide it up a little bit to take it off. Be careful of the rubber seal, because it will still be attacked to door (you might want someone there to help hold it). You just need enough room to get that door lock latch outta there. Remove the screws holding the door lock latch, and pull it out of there just enough were you can disconnect the wires. Connect the new door lock latch, put it back in place and then put the screws back in. Remember the brackets on the front panel. Once you get that panel back in place, continue the re-assembly. As for the door plunger, there are only 2 screws holding it on the door side. Do everything slow and carefully, and it should work out ok.
