From what you are describing it sounds like the door latch assembly needs to be replaced. This is not a simple DIY job though. I would recommend seeking guidance from a professional technician to properly replace the door latch to avoid any future issues. Some of these intricate parts require precision and patience, therefore when replacing such components or removing them from your appliance, I would suggest seeking professional assistance. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt
Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.
Open and shut the door. A "DR" error code indicates that there is a problem with the door, most likely that it has not shut properly. Check to make sure there are no clothes or other items caught in the door.
Open the door and gently wiggle the door latch if the door does not click shut. Clean it with a damp cloth to remove excess dirt or debris that may prevent the door from latching into position.
Close the door and re-select a new wash cycle and "Start."
Look at the door latch hole on the washer where the door latch clicks in. See the warning sticker above it? Above that there should be a plastic spring loaded switch. I cant tell but looking at it in the video it looks like it has broke off? If it is then you need a new latch assembly. If its not you may have a bad switch? Still new latch assembly. I cant be certain without being there but this is my guess.
f the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...
the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will
stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all
buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the
element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).
To clear the flashing light you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic
cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit
(ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could
also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed
(slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door
when you close it).
hi from the uk kath ? you correct in your diagnosis! and is a common problem as machine ages there is a micro switch/delay switch where the door latches ok? if you unplug power from machine then remove the top screws from rear panel (these also hold top panel ) then lift top panel and pull back slightly you can lift top off ?ok now look inside machine where door latches ? you should see the m/delay switch with an elec plug/wires attached ? unplug then undo the screws that secure the switch and lift out the prob with switch is because it is fibre/plastic it gets stiff due to wear/dust so use some wd40 and spray it all around the plunger of switch and work it manually by hand in/out you will know when it operates freely! then dry and refit switch and elec plug/wires (almost forgot !do all this with dooropen on machine sorry ) then reassemble panels and secure reconnect power put some washing in for testing then push door closed gently at the point where release handle is ? always close at this point ? select wash type then start ! your machine will/should start wash cycle ok ? if it does? then congratulations! you have saved $$$$s then when cycle has finished completely ! wait untill light goes off (this is the switch delay ) then you will find door opens easily ? hope this helps and inspires you ? any problems e mail back best wishes from the n/west uk
Alright, unplug the machine for 5 or 10 minutes, after plugging the machine in make sure power is off and hold the spin button down for 5 seconds, then off for 5 seconds until all lights light up, if there is serious error a F code will appear, press spin again until it clears, now 88 appears in the display,flashes and starts a diagnostic cycle. Your error will pop if serious in the display stopping the test at which write the F code down and power off the machine, Either the toe panel or at the right side behind the toe panel is a tech manual to decipher the F bomb.
Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.
