Run a diagnostic on the door lock system; To place the unit in "service mode", close the door completely then press and hold both the "Delicates" and "Heavy Soils" keys for three seconds. Motor speed will be displayed. Press "rinse" to access the main board output function. Then press "max extract"... this is the test for the door lock. Did it lock? To exit, press "max extract" again and then both "Delicates" and "Heavy Soils" for three seconds. VOLTAGE TESTS AHEAD!!! IF YOU AREN'T SURE YOU CAN DO IT, THEN DON'T! CALL A PROFESSIONAL! If the door did not lock, you'll need a voltmeter and an hour or so. Open the door, remove the screws holding the door hinges, then remove the 2 screws (and shims) opposite the door hinges and close the door (do not take it off). Then grasp the front panel at the top near where it meets the top panel and pull toward you quickly. Lean it forward and remove it from the 2 clips at the bottom. Just below the top panel, now exposed, are the top panel retainers... use a 5/16" to remove the one screw on both sides and remove the retainer clips. Now lift the top panel up just like the hood of a car. You can now see the door latch assy. Remove the 2 wires on the solenoid and insert your meter probes into each one of them (color doesn't matter). Set your meter to read AC Voltage, then re-enter "Service Mode" and follow the steps to door lock test. When you hit the "Max Extract" key, 120 volts should be sent to the meter. If you get 120 volts, your latch assy. has failed and should be replaced. If you don't get 120 volts, your control board output has failed and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help, here is how I fixed mine. The net net is that you may have to desolder the two white relays first then solder them back. You will need a solder vac ($10 at radioshack) to remove the solder.
I followed the advise and first just added solder to the 2 white relays and 1 black relay and this did not work. I went to Granger and bought two new relays (black 10A/5A not 10A/10A) and this did not work still 6 weak relay clicks. I then took apart the door lock mechanism (very cool should have taken a picture) and still only got the six weak clicks. Finally, I put the two white relays back but switched their position, and by God's grace and mercy it instantly worked. No clicks from the relay, the door immediately locked and the machine started running. Oh by the way make sure you have the soap thing in if your wife takes it out to clean it while you are working or you will get a little wet.
With all that I did I can't say what exactlly worked except Prayer. I would excluded the actual door lock mechanism. I thought with us manually unlocking the door we may have jammed the mechanism but this was not true. The relays show to be the true culpret. Since this was my first ever soldering job it may be that. Or it may have been switching the relays. I would say resolder first, if that does not work swap the relays, and if that does not work try new ones. But if you just get the relay click you have not fixed it yet.

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.
Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.
Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.
Works for other machines hope it may for you..............And please rate me if helped

The DR LCK fuse supplies battery voltage to the body control module (BCM) for the power door lock system. The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the driver and passenger door lock switches through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. Each door lock switch receives ground at G300 which is also the ground for the door lock and unlock relays located in the BCM. When a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. When a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground through a 1.5k ohm resistor that is internal to each of the door lock switches and the BCM senses approximately 2.9 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. The BCM interprets what position the activated door lock switch was placed in based on the voltage drop.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock or unlock switch signal, will switch the appropriate door lock/unlock relay coil control circuit to ground causing the appropriate door lock/unlock relay to energize. With the relay energized, voltage is applied to the door lock actuator control circuit causing the door to either lock, or unlock depending on what command was received from the power door lock switch or remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). When a power door lock/unlock relay is not energized, the switch contacts are normally grounded through the BCM which provides ground to the appropriate door lock actuator for the lock/unlock function being performed. The power door lock/unlock functions are performed by reversing the flow of voltage through the door lock actuator control circuits. The BCM has three internal drivers for the power door lock system. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked separately from the passenger door. For additional information concerning keyless entry, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.
This is one you may want to take to dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop ! To do this right you need a Tech 2 scan tool !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Door Lock Switch parameter while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameter should change from Idle to Lock and Unlock.
If the value does not change, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.
Command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the door lock actuators should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between the commanded states.
If one or more doors do not LOCK or UNLOCK, refer to Door Lock Malfunction.

Command the driver door and passenger door lock actuators to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the doors should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between commanded states.
If a door lock actuator does not perform the LOCK and UNLOCK functions, refer to Door Lock Malfunction
