The warning sign "Err" indicates that an error has been detected. Check
the machine for error codes such as E47 (the control board detects the door PTC
circuit (door lock and switch assembly) is open in spin) or E48 (the control board detects the door PTC
circuit (door lock and switch assembly) is close),by waking the
machine by pressing any button. Wait for 5 seconds then press and hold
the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons simultaneously and as long as the
buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an "E"
followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. The
control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin
indicator lights will flash. Proceed with replacing the door lock and switch assembly
(part #131763202) if error code E47 or E48 is confirmed to address the problem. Post back any error code shown other than E47 or E48 for further advice.
Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.
Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.
Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.
Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the electrical connections then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.
Put the new door lock and switch assembly into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws. Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop to complete the repair.

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.
