If there is still water in the tub, use a shop vac and attach it to the drain hose, unplug the unit once the water has been removed then plug it back in this should unlock the door.then i would check the drain pump for something stopping it from turning.i hope this helps let me know how things turned out,good luck

Door open wont washer

Possibly some foreign object has worked it's way down into the drain pump, preventing the washer from draining. all the way. (If the washer doesn't drain properly, the door will remain locked).

One way is to take the drain hose out of the wall connection, lower it to floor level & allow it to gravity drain. (Be sure to catch the water in a pan or something). Once the washer has drained, the lid should open.

If this fixed the problem, the pump still has something in it. You will need to remove the back of the washer and check to see what's blocking the discharge pump.
Remove the back of the washer, remove the hose running to the drain pump, remove the pump itself & remove and debris clogging the pump.

Otherwise a service call runs somewhere between $100 - $175.

I couldn't get the washer to start (HE 4T). It

DL stands for Door Lock failure, if your door isnt closing all the way, check to make sure your hinges are lining up and that one of the arms has not broken off on the door, there should be 2 arms going into the door lock. whats common on these is that the door latch has trouble unlocking so it is forced open and now the door latch mechinism is stuck in the locked position and cant re-open. problems with this lock opening and closing- 9 times out of ten, come from a main computer failure to send power to the door lock. this can be temporairily fixed by re-seating the door latch wire harness in the main computer, but its usually recommended to buy a new computer since this problem has been address on the new series of computer. there is no recall on this board at the moment. estimated cost $250-$400

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.

The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
