My GE front loading washer has a similar problem: door lock light will come on but cycle won't start.  Sometimes if I bang on the front of the washer (around the area above the door latch) that would trigger it to start, but lately that doesn't seem to work anymore.  Does that mean the door latch assembly needs to be replaced?

Also, I found the latch assembly for this GE washer:

But it looks like the Frigidaire version is the same and cost almost 2/3 less:

Are these identical?
