Check for L1 to the reed switch. If you have it, the timer is good.  From there it has to be either the reed switch or the door switch. If there is power to the reed switch, the door doesn't lock and the door lock light doesn't come on, the reed switch is bad or the magnet is missing. Check for the magnet in the dispenser drawer.  You can just bypass the reed switch unless you have a habit of leaving the dispenser open.
