Why does the door unlock soon after start button is pressed? Then it locks and the machine starts to work okay.
ANSWER Hello Steve,
This is called by the manufacturer, the child security routine. As per the manufacturer:
The Child Security Routine is initiated at the start of any wash cycle.
1. The Door is Locked.
2. The tub fills with Cold water for three (3) seconds.
3. The door is Unlocked for five (5) seconds.
4. The door is Locked and the wash cycle begins.
