ordered a door latch for outside of washer door. When I got it, installed it but when closed the door, the lights and eveything come on but the washer will not start up. Could it be the inside latch and where do I find it, it will light up but will not operate.
Answer WMoore, Yes, the issue could be in the door switch assembly W10253483 or wiring. to access the switch "1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Turn off the water supply to the washer. 3. Remove the top cover and the console. 4. Remove the lower front access panel
5. Open the washer door. 6. Using a small screwdriver or a pair of long-nosed pliers, pull the tension spring on the retaining wire out from around the front of the bellows, and remove the wire. 7. To remove the door switch assembly: a) Pull the bellows off the lip of the front
panel beside the door switch assembly just enough to access the switch assembly. b) Remove the two T-20 Torx screws from the door switch assembly. c) Pull the door switch assembly out and turn it over so that you can access the connectors. d) Unlock the tabs and disconnect the three wire connectors from the door switch terminals, then remove the assembly."
I had to pull the door latch tab to get door open. Now it want operate. Can the latch be fixed or does it need to be replaced, if so how do I get to it?
Answer Hello Chad. You may have broken it. If so, replace it. You will disconnect the power and remove the ring around the front of the boot and fold it into the tub. Then you can remove the screws and wires and replace the lock assembly W10253483 from inside the panel.
I have a issue were I thought it was the door latch mechanism but now my door is locked and I can not open my washer door. My washer just shows the light on "Wash" and keeps beeping....
any help would be appreciated.
What would the fix most likely be?
How can I get the door open again?
Answer Mike, to manually unlock the door latch " 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Remove the lower kick panel. 3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. 4. Located on the bottom of the door switch/ lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4" or until a click is heard. 6. The door may be opened." When you remove the lower access panel, you should find the tech data information sheet attached to the back. Use it to program into the diagnostics and test modes, it'll help you to properly diagnose the issue(s) with the washer.
I took apart the latch because a piece of the old door hinge broke in it and I can't figure out how to put it back together
If you took the latch apart you will need to replace the latch as there is no instructions for reassembly of the door latch available.

Started with the door latch not working. I press the start button and would hear one click noise coming from the CCU then get the F22 code. I replaced the latch, still didn't work. The wires "appeared" fine I replaced the CCU. I press the start button and get three quick beeps, still no latch lock and no F22 error appearing. It just will not start. I use an ohm meter and get no activity on the latch wire that attaches to DLS2 on the CCU. I get something like 15 on DS2. Can't test the DL3 wire. I'm guessing it is a wire issue going to and from the latch and the CCU. Are there separate wires I can purchase to the latch assembly? Am I at the right repair step?
Answer Tommy, You may have to use a couple of needles, pins or small metal paper clips and your meter the conduct the tests at the CCU. First check and make sure the door is closing and sealing properly and it activates the door switch properly. The DS2 connector at the CCU, must "see" the door switch open and close is accordance with the door position, or the washer control will beep and not program etc. The DL3 connector pin #1 to pin #2 must "see" 120 VAC when the door locks, and 120 VAC across pin#2 and pin#3 when the latch unlocks. When the door is locked, the DLS2 connector should have 120 VAC across pin#1 and pin#2 in order to complete the circuit to the other components of the washer. If the wiring is damaged or at fault, the wiring harness W10184856 will need to be replaced or repaired.
Door won't open used manual latch to open but when started cycle door locks but cycle won't start. Ran test and door lock and clean washer stayed lite which recommends replace of door lock system which is? Pn and how?
The door latch assembly is part number W10253483. To replace the door latch, open the door and remove the spring clamp around the bellow. Once removed, take the bellow off the door opening and remove the 2 screws on the door opening that hold the latch assembly in place. Once removed pull the latch assembly out. You will need to disconnect the wiring of the latch assembly which may require the lower panel being taken off or the top panel. Each of which are held in by 3 screws. Install in reverse.
