Hi,

The door on the washer keeps popping open during its cycle.
I have tried it with a full load and no load and still pops open.
I have been battling this intermittent problem for a year now.
It also seems like there is a bit of resistance (like the door is binding with the door seal but cant see upon visual inspection anywhere that this is happening) you have to give it a firm push to latch it.
Also it seems to happen most when it gets hot (why i checked the vent for the steam)
I also tried with out the front panel on door to reduce weight and it seemed to work ok. Though im not sure if i just got lucky.

Here is a list of what i have done / replaced:

-replaced latch and micro switch for lock
-leveled unit on all sides using a 4 inch magnetic level
-cleaned any film that may bind with door
-checked drain..clear - you can hear it draining during cycle.
-checked steam exit.. clear
-hinges seem fine no excessive wear or damage
-linkage not broken

Only physical things i haven't changed is:

the inner /outter seal
linkage and pulleys


Any Ideas??

Thanks Fellas

Regards,

Jay
