SOURCE: Washer door won't lock
Two parts problem, motherboard burn and wax motor inoperation. The wax motor operate the open and lock. wax motor exposed to moisture and ground out causing the motherboard to short circuit (burn) the motherboard circuit board is on the top behind the panel. It will cost about 300.00 check ebay too! I replaced my washer because there is another circuit board down below the tub and it takes one bad leak that cost another 300.00.

needs new door interlock,( sits behind where the door catches on to) easy to fit normally, make sure you un unplug the washer before starting.

the door lock has internal relays, if they go bad, the motor control board will not function. Even if you cant physically see anything, and even if the door still locks, the door lock assembly is still the most likely problem and needs replaced. The only way to test it is with a multimeter to know for sure before you buy a new one

Thanks for using FixYa. Error “fld” means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
