Whirlpool model WMH1164XVS2 turntable spins constantly when the door is closed (tuns off when open). When attempting to program a cook cycle, the display reads "Door Not Closed" or something very similar.

Has this worked OK up till now ?
1) Secondary Interlock Switch (wrong Switch or Latch Interlock not working)
2) Primary Interlock Switch (wrong Switch or Latch Interlock not working)

Yes, this unit was working until this point. I check the switches continuity and they seem to function properly when opening and closing. A switch would explain the light issue but isn't the turntable motor activated by the control board?

the switches control the turntable also, order all 3 Parts 8,9,19. one of them is bad, I usually replace all 3 when 1 is bad just to keep from having a recall.

Oh, sorry I thought that was mentioned.  With the door closed, the light comes on AND turntable spins

Yes Comstock, switches test out so I pretty confident it's the CL relay on the circuit board after reviewing the wiring diagram.  At $140  for the part, this unit isn't worth the repair.  It is now an organ donor.  Thanks for all your input and the diagram.
