SOURCE: Washing machine door lock problem

Just try to check the door latch device. Be sure that the latch is not bound or sticking in any way .This problem with a lot of machines and it almost always was the door lock latch assembly. It has a switch inside it that pauses or stops the cycle if the door is not closed properly, when this switch malfunctions then it will pause or stop the cycle repeatedly; just from the small movement of the wash cycle. The door will actually be shut all the way and the lock may be on. You must replaced this switch so it works normal again..
Just click for the spare parts site link;

Hope it may help you;

SOURCE: Door Lock LED flashing

The solution from testy helped me but I decided to change it.

I cut the plastic latch away from the end of the interlock,just the little bar that holds the door closed.This means that the lock position doesn't affect the door.

I then used the little piece of plastic to act as 2 packing pieces to hold the lock half closed. This works fine.

Don't push the lock fully closed or it doesn't work

SOURCE: GE WHDVH626fWW Door Locked, but not

Mine was doing the same thing. Upon closer investigation the drum seal was torn near the door locking mechanism, and when water got on the locking mechanism it shorted it out until it dryed. Then it would work again. You can check this by pulling the seal back on the locking side of the door to see if its torn.

How to get into programming mode to program a remote?


Few Toyota models came equipped with remote door locks before 2008 - surprisingly!

Your car may not have the radio receiver to work with door locks. In that case, you need the radio and some wireing to pair with your remotes.

My dishwasher will not start its cycle



Is the door open or unlatched?

Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Is there power to the dishwasher?

electricity ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector in terminal box.
Donot use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,fire,or electrical shock.




Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)

The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?

Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Is the delay start option activated?

To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?

The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?

Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.

On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?

Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

If these tips did not work or your controls are not working correctly you may need to schedule service.

My washer is not starting in the selected mode. It had a fault code of "dL" which I figured means there is a "door lock" problem. Is this correct and can it be fixed by me? Please help, Thank You


DL error stands for Door Lock.Follow the instructions to repair yourself.

Step 1

If your door hasn't yet locked and will not lock simply press cancel and try again.
If this will not work and the cycle still will not start up then skip to step three.

Step 2

If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold the cancel button and select drain/spin.If this still doesn't work and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the crow bar and a sledge hammer.You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Remove the lower kick panel.
- Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit.
- Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab.
- Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard.
- The door may be now opened.

Step 3

If your door fails to lock and your cycle will not start moderately but forcefully hit the back right hand corner of the washer with your fist.You may have to do this a couple of times,but you should hear the locking mechanism click so your washer is now locked.

After I manually did this one time I never had the "F" error again.

Anti-theft has engaged


sounds like the transmitter in the key head is defective or it lost programming, try these programing steps, if that doesn't do it u need another key made.

Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door
locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.
2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm
programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to
confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
