There is a manual unlocking tab located at the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly. Disconnect power to the washer before accessing it.

Remove the three screws attaching the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall for an easy access of the screws.

Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly on the right side.

Locate the tear-drop shaped tab then gently pull it down until a click is heard, and then open the door.

The door lock and switch assembly may need to be replaced if the problem persists. Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness.

Connect the wiring harness to the new door lock/latch assembly and install it back in place behind the front panel.

Secure the door lock/latch assembly and put the eased part of the door gasket back into position over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before putting back and securing the retaining hoop around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

2000 pontiac Montana passenger sliding door will not open and lock is stuck in the lock position.


If you cannot manually unlock the door, use a rubber hammer and firmly rap the door at the striker/lock area while manually sliding the lock/unlock switch to unlock,it may take a few tries but should unlock.DO NOT lock the door again until you have lubed the lock assembly and are happy with it's operation.If it's an electric lock fail to unlock/lock,with the door open use steel wool on the door post electrical door contact pads once in a while.

How can I lock a renault megane 56 plate without the key card as it is not working


Locking/Unlocking the doors from the outside
This is done using the RENAULT Card; see the "RENAULT Card" information in Section 1.
In certain cases, the RENAULT card may not work:
- if the RENAULT card battery is weak, flat, etc.
- if equipment operating on the same frequency as the card (mobile phones, etc.) is used;
- vehicle located in a high electromagnetic radiation zone.
It is then possible:
- to use the key integrated into the card to unlock the front left-hand door;
- to lock each of the doors manually;
- to use the interior door locking/unlocking control (refer to the following pages).
Using the key integrated in the RENAULT card
Insert key 1 into the lock in the driver's door and lock or unlock. Locking the doors manually
Turn screw 2 with the door open (using the end of the key) and close the door.
This means that the doors are then locked from the outside.
The doors may then only be opened from the inside or by using the key in the front left-hand door. Interior locking/unlocking door control
Switch 3 controls the doors, boot and, depending on the vehicle, the fuel filler flap simultaneously.
If a door or the tailgate is open or not closed properly, the doors and tailgate lock/unlock quickly.
If you need to transport objects with the boot open, the other opening elements can still be locked: with the engine stopped, press switch 3 for more than five seconds to lock the other opening elements.
Locking the doors without the RENAULT card
For example, in the event of a discharged battery or the RENAULT card temporarily not working, etc.
With the engine switched off and an opening element (door or boot) open, press and hold switch 3 for more than five seconds.
When the door is closed, all the doors and the tailgate will be locked.
Unlocking the vehicle from the outside is only possible with the RENAULT card in the vehicle's access zone or using the key integrated in the RENAULT card.
Door and tailgate status indicator
With the ignition on, the warning light integrated in switch 3 informs you of the locking status of the opening elements:
- indicator light on, the doors and tailgate are locked,
- indicator light off, the doors and tailgate are unlocked.
When you lock the doors, the indicator light remains lit and then goes out.

Having trouble with my whirlpool cabrio . . . showing "DU" . . .


The F30 error code (dU) will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.



Door Unlock Error

A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked.
It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error.


Door Lock Mechanism broken.
Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


If it is a cabrio:
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state.





TEST #8 Door Lid Lock
Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock).
1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests.
2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1.
4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the
resistance values....



Component/Resistance Unlocked/Resistance Locked/Contacts Measured/Contacts Measured:


Motor Winding/35 ±5 O/35 ±5 O/P12-2/P12-3/
Lock Switch - Home/0 O/Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-4
Lock Switch - Lock/Open Circuit/0 O/P12-1/P12-7
Lock Switch - Lid/Lid Closed = 0 OLid Open = Open Circuit/Lid Closed = 0 O Lid Open = Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-5


If resistance values are good, go to step 5. If switch measurements do not match the values shown in the table for unlocked (or locked) conditions, a problem
exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock.

5. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Replace machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 to verify repair.
