    I have the same problem - the machine was working fine for a few months and now the door will not lock - I get the "dr" error code when the door is closed.

    I ran a load just fine in the morning,than in the afternoon I started getting "dr" code too and won't lock. A repair man said to un-plug for atleast 15mins, but I had it un-plug for hours and did not help.

First thing to try is some WD 40 on the lock mechanism on the machine. Plug off the wall first. A catch on the mechanism may not be working to indicate that the door is locked to the control panel.

Caution after wash wait for a click in lock area or wait for 3 minutes to open the door; do not force the door.

    Plug off the wall socket. Check whether the wires to the door are tight. After spraying the WD40 open & close the door a few times.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start

sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

My tailgate wont open nissan armada

On the inside of the hatch door to the left of the handle is a little detachable door. Take that door off and inside is a little white plastic lever. Push the lever down and the door handle opener will work again. However, I am not sure why it isn't unlocking when you send the request from the key chain.... 1 downside is that it will keep getting shifted up so it is not a permenant fix. I taped the white plastic part down, but then the hatch NEVER locks and is always able to be open. The alarm will go off if it is opened when all of the other doors are locked, but it is still not a permenant fix. Hope this helps...

Hello Trouble shooter, All other door locks work electronically except for the left rear.

Pull the left rear door panel and see if the lock solenoid is getting power when the door lock switch is depressed. If it is replace the door lock solenoid. If it isn't than you'll have to start tracing wires back to the switches to find the open in the wire. A common place for this to happen is in the harness that runs in between the door and the body. This shouldn't be two difficult to solve with a basic volt meter or test light. If you have more questions please ask and i'll do my best to help.

Got a jump start now overhead lights, clock, radio auto door locks, and some dash lights arent working

Check fuses; probably got blown during the jump, which isn't unheard of.

Door light in dash stays on, interior lights don't work and auto locks wont engage.

hi ya it seems one of the door switches is broken or disengaged on each door frame you will find a push in switch witch operates the interior light, door warning light on dash and remote locking if one of them is not working it will show on dash as a door not closed it will prevent the interior light from working and also stop the auto locking system from working properly the locking system is connected to the interior lights
Hope yhis helps

Radio wont hol memory, dome light wont work when key switch off, and All lock wont unlock doors unless key in on.

Probably a fuse. You radio keeps it's memory using a constant power wire which is probably interlinked with the dome light, door locks, etc. Check fuses under the dash as well as under the hood for any blown fuses. Look for fuses labeled with your listed problems of things that don't work.

Lights flickering

The Lights Flickering is most likely a defective Voltage regulator in the Alternator. Use a Volt meter to determine this.. I think its isolated from the door locks.. Im not good on door locks.. So not much help there.. But hope what lil bit I do know helped ya. thankx
