Good Evening, my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you with your problem. I could not find this model number listed. Inside the door on the frame, or on the right side panel bottom front, will be the model number. If its different than what you sent, please resend. What your problem is is you have a bad door switch. When you open the door, look for a buttom you pushin and out. This is the door switch. You can probably get the switch either at sears, or Do check the model number again for me, and let me know.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** The part number you require for this UK model is C00141683

The issue you have is that the door safety switch is faultering.. A simple procedure of removal and replacement of the switch is required.. the switch is not safely repairable.
