My washer wont lock
Answer There may be more than one part that can cause this problem. We have a Repair Forum on our website and it would be better for you to ask this question in that venue. You may be able to find an answer by searching in the washer section or you can post your own questions. Be sure to provide your model and serial numbers.

Our front loader will wash a load of clothes, but when we try to wash a second load soon after, it won't start. Lights come on and everything, but nothing happens when we push start. Half hour to an hour later it will work with no problems. I don't think it is a door latch problem, as it works eventually. The manual said that it won't start if the motor is too hot, and it will shut off automatically if it starts overheating while washing. I thought this might be the issue, but it has never stopped in the middle of the cycle and the motor doesn't feel hot to the touch at the end of a cycle. Wanted to get an opinion before spending $200 on a new motor.
Answer Hello Jonathan,
This will be most likely either the door lock assembly 131763202, the motor 134869400 has an open winding, (three phase has three windings), or the motor control board 134149220.
