I am getting a door lock failure code on my whirlpool duet

Resolved Question:

I am getting a door lock failure code on my whirlpool duet washer. I have changed the door lock module twice. The first time I replaced the lock module the door would lock most of the time, but not always after a load of wash. Moisture maybe? This last time, the door would not unlock, manually unlocked the door, replaced the door lock module again on the chance the first one was defective and the boot for the possible moisture problem, but am still getting the door lock failure code. How do I test the module to see if I have a simple harness connection problem, or something else?

Is there some way I can test the panel before I buy the part?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
you can always test the power from it to the latch but it may give a false reading since its bad and not controlling the door switch ,,, if you replace it then it will be ok ,,,, seen this many times over my years
