continue its pivot upward.

disengaged and arm is in an outward position. Return

the door.
The vent latch may become dislodged from hinge point
if door closure is attempted while latch arm is not in
an acceptable closing position. The latch arm can be
snapped back in at the hinge location. Washer will still
operate without latch arm installed.
Press and hold both for ten seconds
to lock or unlock the controls.
