Hi, i am trying to figure out which part i need for my washer? The problem i am having is the washer powers up, however when i shut the door the button to turn the wash cycle on buzzes and then sometimes does go on briefly, but then automatically shuts off immediately. The door remains locked and you can not open it. In order to open the door you must unplug the machine to reset it and only then can you get access to open the door. Please let me know if this would be an electronic issue in the panel or if it is the part in the door frame that needs to be replaced? I am a bit disappointed in this particular machine as i have already had it worked on twice and it is only between 5-7 years old!

JANET for model number GFWH2400L0WW

Hi Janet, That is a good question. If the washer is stopping shortly after it starts then you may need to replaced the door lock latch, part number PS1021459. I hope this helps with the repair.

My washer beeps and adds time to the cycle when you press start and you have to move the cycle knob to reset the display back to the normal run time. If you open and close the door it will often start properly. I didn't see any sensor to replace so I am wondering if it just needs the lock replaced.

Jeff for model number WCVH6800J0MS

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your inquiry. I would suggest testing your door lock to see if it is malfunctioning. I would also suggest testing all of the thermostats inside of your dryer. If they are reading the incorrect temperature then the board might be adding more time to the cycle because of it. If all of those parts check out, you may have to look into contacting a repair technician to come and test your electronic control board. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.


Won't spin or drain. Door locks and unlocks on its own. It spins two revolutions on drain and spin cycle, then stops. It seems like the door switch that i am looking at on your site might be the problem, but it just hasn't gone out completely. I just want you to verify that this is the right part.

steve for model number WCVH6800J1WW

Hello Steve, thank you for contacting us. That sounds like it would be the door latch. They can start to fail by randomly stopping the washer, sometimes putting pressure on the door will keep it going, but it does look like it would be the door latch. Good luck with the repair!

Machine would not function

Removed the three screws behind the top panel and slide it back to remove. Removed control panel then the two lower screws on the front panel the spring around the front of the gasket and slid up the front assembly to remove. Door lock was on front panel held by 2 screws and then loosened clamp around back of gasket and the gasket removed easily. The installation was easy nothing special to do and the problem was solved.

"door locked" light always on. Washer would not run

Remove bottom kick plate of washer. Remove 4 screws behind door that hold the latch/lock assembly. Reach up inside the washer from underneath to unplug 3 wire connectors. (This is a very tight spot). Once wires are off, part comes right out. Connect wires to the new part - this is by far the most difficult part of the job because it is way up inside the washer. Replace all bolts.
Overall, pretty easy to do - just reconnecting the wires is a pain, but if you are patient it is not a big deal.

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.
