Error code " du "


DU = Door Unlock code

Washing machine displays error code F/DU after six attempts to unlock.
-Door lock assembly failed.
-Test door lock switch
-Visually inspect wire harness connection on CCU, Door lock assembly, replace door lock assembly.

The door lock assemble on this washing machine can be replaced from either the top of the front. The door boot can be removed or the top of the washer can be removed.

Hope this helps.

What is DU blinking on a Whirlpool Cabrio washer mean?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'DU' stands for Door Unlock Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door open/closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

Hi. My washer is coding dU then F as codes.. I cant get it to shut off and unlock the door to get cloths out. The book does not have a code for dU.. PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME :)


Door unlock error. The machine tried 6 times to unlock the door. Must be an item of clothing jamming the door. take the bottom panel off and reach up and grab the emergency ring, GENTLY release the door amigo. Use this GUIDE for repairs
and use your tech sheet inside that base panel for error codes and diagnostics.

I overstuffed my GE front load washer and now the door won't unlock. How do I manually override the door lock feature? Thanks!!


Let it run through its cycle. At the end take 1/4 of the clothing out put it aside in a hamper. re run load with some of the clothes taken out. Then washer the other clothes afterwards.
