    The washer will not turn on and the door is locked. The display shows "dl" then "f".

    Resetting the computer is done by leaving the until unplugged for 2 1/2 minutes. If you remove the 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom panel, you can reach up on the right hand side for a manual release that yopu can pull. What error code do you have? I belive "DL" is door latch. Check to see if the little black pin is sticking out where the door pushes against it. Most of the time for one of these not running, it's having something in your pump (the white peice in the botom center after you get the panel off) If you rortate the front knob on the pump it will open and you can remove forign objects causing it not to run. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BUCKET AND TOWELS AS WATER WILL COME OUT WHEN YOU OPEN THE PUMP.

My Samsung WF8602NHS stops and gives an error "5d" or "Sd"? Cant find the error code on the manual. Please help.

Other than ''bad computer board'', the only thing you can do yourself (besides replacing the board) is to unplug it from the wall for a _full_ 24 hours. Then try using it. Same problem = bad board.

Hi I have just brought a Simpson Eziset model SWT604 It is constantly beeping every 2 seconds and showing Err in the display clock. I have contacted the repair people and think it needs to be reset/...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Donna. Have you tried unplugging the washer for a few minutes and plugging it back up? If not, try that and it should reset. Is the washer refusing to start? Besides the code, what is the washer doing?
