This is a door lock error, we need to put it in diagnostic code and give me the numbers it show following the direction below.
1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in
with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes
Clean or Done indicator on).
2. Select any one button (except POWER, START,
STOP and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps
below, using the same button (remember the
a. Press/hold 3 seconds.
b. Release for 3 seconds.
c. Press/hold 3 seconds.
d. Release for 3 seconds.
e. Press/hold 3 seconds.
? If this test mode has been entered successfully,
all indicators on the console are illuminated for
5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated
Time Remaining two-digit display.
? If indicators do not display as described above,
the press/hold/release procedure above may not
have been performed within the time frame
necessary for successful entry. Repeat step 2 to
ensure this was not the cause. If still
unsuccessful, see Diagnostic: Unsuccessful
Entry, page 1.
3. The program then checks for saved fault codes:
? If there are saved fault codes, see Diagnostic:
Saved Fault Codes, page 2.
? If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators
on the console will momentarily turn off, then
turn back on with 88 displayed. After 5
seconds, the Automatic test, below, begins.
