Question about Samsung 4.3 cu. ft. VRT Plus , Steam and PowerFoam Front Load Washer
Had load of laundry in machine and it stopped, beeped and said door was open, but actually, the door was locked and would not open. We went through the test mode, and were able while testing, to get it to click open. So, now, we can open and close the door, but it won't lock, and is still showing the code D5 or Ds? Help
Sure the error code is not "de"? Faulty door lock mechanism or needs to be released manually.

The machine has to reset to bringg tthe lock to release, check the link to the lock settings to make the program complete the cycle and release the lock. Do not force it as you end up damaging.

Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

This means your door interlock has broken & needs to be replaced.There made of plastic this is a very common problem with all brands of front load washer's.
