I have a wm2277hw washer and the door will not stay shut, thus the washer will not work. After reading a couple of forums, I replaced the door latch 6601er1004c and the problem still exist. Is there something else that could be the problem or do I have a bad part?

Replace the DOOR HINGE ASSY

http://www.repaircli...ER2002A/1267595

In many cases---the stainless steel screws to the hinge are *frozen* by the corroded aluminum.

Use a propane torch to heat each screw for 30 seconds---then remove the screw.

NOTE: Heat the screws on the hinge side---not from the FRONT COVER/PANEL.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
