Its looks like a lid switch issue. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Good luck!

SOURCE: ge front loading washer door won't unlock

I had the same problem. I didn't want to spend the money or go to the trouble of replacing the whole latch assembly with the GE latch repair kit.
I found that the plastic latch piece screwed to the door had broken and one of the two latch "fingers" was stuck in one of the latch openings on the washer. I fixed the problem by removing the broken part from the washer and drilling and countersinking very small holes (1/16" I think) in the plastic latch piece on either side of the "latch finger". I then put the broken off piece back in place and drillled pilot holes for #4 sheet metal screws in the door where the latch is located. The door liner is plastic and I think I used a 1/32 inch drill bit. I reattached the broken latch piece with two 1/2 inch stainles steel #4 flat head phillips screws from Home Depot. The screws hold the broken latch piece in place as orinilally positioned.
The repair is working fine and the door now latches like it did before the latch part broke

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Sorry but both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

With the door lock light turned on without the door being locked is an obvious indication that the door lock/switch assembly is in bad shape. The lock broken is stuck closed or the door lock switch contact are stuck closed or has welded together. Check for any of these conditions and address it accordingly. Gently flick the door lock/switch assembly repeatedly or tap it against a hard surface to possibly release any stuck component. Replace the door lock/switch assembly if the problem is not addressed.

The machine will not fill by not activating the water valve solenoids unless the door switch is activated the door strike and the door lock switch is activated as indicated by turned on of the door lock light. This is to prevent flooding your floor should someone attempts opening the door. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in replacing the door lock/switch assembly. The instruction is for a Frigidaire front load washer but they are basically the same as they both use the same door lock/switch assembly.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

Sounds like the door is not latching correctly. Check the door for any sagging problems and then check the door latch itself for any damages, cracks, or issues with the door itself connecting to it.

My affinity front load washing machine stopped mid-cycle. The door won't lock so it won't run and it has water sitting in it. Is there anything we can try before calling a repair man?
