The D5 error is actually DS. The code means the washer thinks the door is open or unlocked during the cycle. the problem is related to faulty door locking assembly.There is a switch in back of door, if this fails it wont work. God-Bless!
Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...
Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.
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.
