Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
HI. That code is in reference to the door locking mechanism. It is experiencing difficulties at this time. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
The necessary actions are to Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU). This can be achieved by removing the top and front panel. The door assembly must be removed as well. Once you have exposed the door locking mechanism and its respective connections to the CCU, kindly, inspect each connections for a loose fit. The CCU will be located on the top of the unit, just to the rear or side of the interface panel. Check the linking connections that run to the door locking mechanism for a loose fit, as well. If all connections check out ok,simply, replace the door locking mechanism(switch assembly). This will correct the issue.
I have included a service manual for this unit. This duet service manual will guide you through the necessary disassembling process, as well as, the proper testing procedures for the door locking mechanism and CCU. The common fault here in your case will be a damaged door locking switch assembly, and replacing it will solve the problem. Click here to access your service manual.
Component accessing procedures will begin on page 4-1. The door switch assembly removal procedure will start on page 4-3. it is part of the door removal section. Follow it carefully to extract the assembly. Componet checks start on page 5-2. You can test the CCU door lock solenoids for proper ohms by referring to the ohm chart on page5-3. The CCU pin connector location is labeled on the top of page 5-1 under door lock solenoids. Due to the fact that there is a very small possibility that the CCU may be damaged, you can test the pins to verify that the CCU is indeed functioning with a good set of door lock/unlock solenoids. This will, essentially, isolate the door lock switch assembly as the lone culprit.

This is a long drain code. probably just something in pump. takeoff kick plate. get a wet vac and take clean out trap loose. drain water look in the reservoir. most of the time there is a lot of change in the rubber boot that connects the the back side of electic pump.

keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced
