The door is locked shut and the power will not go on
I loaded my machine with a pretty full load and I turned it on and went out shopping. When I came back, the power was off (no lights on) and the door is locked shut. I unplugged the machine and waited a while then plugged it back in and nothing changed. Please help...!

This is a
common problem with a momentary power failure, the controller doesn't get time
to reset and return to an idle state before the machine gets power back and it
gets "confused". You will almost
certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the
button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned
off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes
will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and all will be well when you
power back up.
if there is still water in the tub.then you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to then end of the drain hose and remove all the water,once the water is removed the door should unlock after you turn it back on.then you can check the drain pump for obstructions.
have you checked the power coming off the board to the switch
Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.
DE is a door lock error it could be the door hasn't been shut firm enough or the door lock may have failed. Sometimes the pin that goes through the handle and ****** comes lose the door would have to be taken apart to check for that and in some rare cases the main module can be faulty.
Potential reasons for it:
- Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced.
- Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door.
- Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit.
- Door Lock/Switch unit Failure
You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit.
Be aware you should discconect machine's power cable first !!
