Mine is doing the exact same thing as donsmirl. I have done some checking and found a site that walked me through the testing process and it looks like it is the locking mechanism that has issues. It is Error 61 if you run the test. I haven't figured out how to fix it yet but I know this is the problem.

I am having the exact same problem. A cycle was just finishing and it was stuck on 1 minute left but the washer wasn't spinning but it sounded like it should have been. I unplugged the washer and when I plugged it back in the only light that came on after a few seconds was the "Door Locked" light. None of the buttons do anything when pressed except sometimes they beep. It sounds like an electronics problem to me. Is there a way to reset the machine?

Thanks

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your desciption it seems to be indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or more likely the door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Making humming noise power not on door locked


turn off the unit.use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose this will remove all the water then you can turn it back on and should be able to open the door to get your clothes out.
after all thatis done you need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing blocking the pump.other likely problems are the door lock mechanism is bad or the main control board

Door will not open with wall switch or remote


Depending on the type of motor that is used in your garage door opener, it could be something as small as a start capacitor, or potentially a bad motor. Hope this helps

Control locked light on


Power shd be on. Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds. Always wait for 2 minutes after the wash is over for the machine to release the door lock; an inbuilt safety device. Never force washer doors, you'll have probs.

Washer door pops open during wash cycle


Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.
