Speed Queen door lock issue

  • 1.  Speed Queen door lock issue

    So, I have a SQ washer that won't lock and start.  I keep getting the "door" alarm.  I replaced the solenoid/door lock and tested both switches within the door lock mechanism and still can't locate the issue.  If I manually move the door lock over, the machine will start and run fine.
    Any further ideas as to what I should check?

    Brian,

    It would be helpful to say the model number.

    Later models have a safety relay in the electrical tray.  This controls the door lock assembly.

    Also, the  door switches don't cost much so just replace them.  If your washer's switches work with just 5 volts; they may test fine but fail to work with that very low voltage.   Newer washers use 24 volts.
