Door latch not working therefore cannot use.


Verlin, this is JK. I understand that you are having concerns with the door latch. Before considering contacting a service provider, I would recommend resetting the appliance by turning off the power to the washer for about five minutes. After the five minutes return power to the appliance, this should allow the washer to return to working condition. You may also want to check to ensure the door is aligned. If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this helps!

Washer won't stay running error code DS


I am wondering if your error code is DS and not D5, which would indicate problems with the door lock assembly communicating with the control board. Essentially, the control board does not believe the door is closed and/or locked, so it shuts down the machine.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

What does ds mean on Samsung high efficiency washing machine


A dS code means that the door was opened during the cycle. (At least this is true for the WF210ANW/XAA washer.) Close the door tightly and restart the wash cycle.

If the error persists, you probably have a problem with the door latch.
Samsung has the manual and trouble-shooting FAQs for many of their appliances here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ . Click on Washers & Dryers (in the rightmost column) then use the drop-down menus to select Washers and then the model.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your washer for additional assistance.

D5 error


Error code D5 OR DS is the same.Its mostly DS which looks like D5. The D5 error is actually DS. The code means the washer thinks the door is open or unlocked during the cycle. The door has to be checked.Is it getting properly close/open.If its getting close/open then the problem is related to faulty door locking assembly. But if its not getting proper close then there is any blockage causing the door to close or the door lock latch is faulty causing this problem.

Hope helps.

Washer stops


Initially, pls open the lower access panel (bottom of your washer) by removing the 3 torx screws. There would be a sheet that lists the error codes. The panel pulls forward and down, inside mounted on the right side taped to that inner panel would be the above described sheet. Additionally, to my knowledge, this indicates a door latch fault, the machine cannot activate the lock or senses that the door is not closed or the door is not locked.

In some instances, the error code F/DL could be triggered be a loose component. This could be that the plastic fitting on the door is loose and therefore will not latch on the locking assembly or the locking assembly itself is loose. You could then try opening and closing the door a couple of times.

Should this be not corrective, then the logic controller board may require close checking.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Cannot get washer door to open.


This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
Is the washer door firmly shut?
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service

Kenmore Elite problem


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
