    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.

  • Anonymous Sep 11, 2008

    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...

2009 GMC Envoy - power door locks, power windows, fuel gauge not working, dome light isn't working

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ? computer controlled systems ? There is electronic control modules in side the doors of your vehicle that control the operation of the windows an lock's , plus the instrument cluster is a module too . Your vehicle has about 10 different control modules and thet are all hooked on a serial data communication network ,to share info. The fuel tank sending unit in the gas tank is wired to the PCM - engine computer , The PCM sends fuel level info to the gauge in the instrument cluster on this serial data network . Your best bet ,take an have the vehicle checked out by a qualified repair shop .
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Door Module (PDM)
• Liftgate Module (LGM)
• Door lock relay
• Door unlock relay
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• Reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors
• LR/RR LOCKS 10A fuse (relay supply voltage)
• Door lock switches in driver and passenger doors (switches are integral components to the DDM and PDM)

Power Door Lock Operation
The power door lock switches are integral components of the DDM and PDM. The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM. The DDM or PDM monitors these inputs and sends a Class 2 message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the Class 2 message and activate the motor in the appropriate direction to lock or unlock the vehicle's doors and liftgate. The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
• DDM (driver door lock actuator).
• PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).
• BCM (both rear door lock actuators).
• LGM (liftgate door lock actuator).
The DDM, PDM and LGM are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock motor lock and unlock circuits. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received, the module will supply battery voltage to one side of the actuator and ground the other causing the doors to lock or unlock.

The modules probably have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored , these would point a auto tech in a positive diagnostic direction .

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.

with the door sagging it may not be pushing button in far enough to shut light off or aligning with button right.Replace bushings in door.The fuse is probably the same one for light and door locks.

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

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
