MAH8700 - Door lock problem - Will not engage
« on: April 05, 2015, 10:38:06 AM »

So after finding out i purchased a secondhand washer from a company here in town, that is apparently under a recall due to a fire hazard.  My door lock stopped working.  Currently do not have the money to drop on a new washer. 
Last week i received a E3 error.  After power cycling the washer it started and i was able to do my laundry.   Then the door lock stopped engaging.  I purchased a new door lock and installed it and i still get the same FL error 4 door lock failed to engage.

I am slightly at a loss, do not have the money for a new washer or control board.   But i can do board level repair if i can find out what is actually causing the problem.

Any suggestions ?
Thank you in advance for any and all help with this.
