My washer is locking/unlocking and wont start the cycle...it has made an awful loud grinding noise as well for a few minutes the last few times i used it...what could this be?

Staci for Model Number wtw5550xw2

ANSWER Staci, The most common issue for door lock issues and noises like you described, is usually due to a faulty motor actuator W10006355 or a loose connection, the actuator contains sensors and relays information to the control and determines if the lid lock should or shouldn't be locked, if the signal is incorrect the latch can lock or unlock and keep the washer from starting as well as other intermittent operations. .
