I stopped the washer prematurely and now it says d5. My door

Customer Question

I stopped the washer prematurely and now it says d5. My door won't shut bc the lock is in the way. I've inplugged the machine and gotten ahold of the wire unit. Now what do I do?

d5 means that your door latch isn't working properly which is why the door is locked even with the door open. If you have already unplugged the washer for 5 minutes and the issue didn't reset, you'll need to order and replace the door latch because it's just failed I'm sorry to say.

I can't reset it manually?

You can try to flip the latch hook up using a flat head screwdriver and prying on it, but typically you can not just reset the latch, the latch isn't working because it failed.
