Just replaced control panel for ge washer wcvh6800j1ww. Did not fix problem. Original problem was that after pressing power button and then the start button, the start button would flash and not start the cycle. It requires that the door be opened and closed repeatedly (pressing the start button after each closing) before the button will stop flashing and start a cycle. Do I have a door lock problem instead?

You need to find the manual and run a diagnostic test.  Find the manual and check the door switch by testing it at the control board.  Other wise you will just keep changing parts until you get the right one.  It could be a bad connection in one of the cables or a loose connection.  You need to do some testing.  It does sound like it may be related to the door switch.  You could buy it from app and if it's not the problem you could send it back.Part number: AP3884122

Part number: AP3884122

  Better to find out for sure what the problem is but that's not always possible.  In that case you could order and if it's not the fix then return it.

Thanks for the fast reply. Ran the diagnostic test -- no errors identified. I took off the cover and discovered that one of the plugs for the switch was loose. Reseated the plug, threw in a load of laundry, and it is working! First time it has worked correctly in days... Thank you for your help.
