ge quietpower1 won't start
My GE Quietpower 1 doesn't reset when I close the door. It doesn't seem to recognize that the door is closed and it needs to reset for the next wash cycle, so when I push the start button nothing happens.
As a workaround, I can reach in the latch on the inside of the door with a fork and push down on the plunger SW interlock (part 1002 on the diagram) and after a few tries the machine will beep and reset so I can push the start button it starts its cycle normally. The plunger pops back up vigorously when I do this, so I think the spring is OK.
What is the most likely problem and most fruitful course of action to repair the problem? My suspicion is that I need to replace a switch or sensor of some sort, maybe the switch interlock (part 803), or something that the activates a switch, maybe the plunger SW interlock, but I'm not sure.
What are other parts failures that could cause this problem?
