control lock led is on - washer is inoperative. It's a frontload HE 3t

try pressing and holding cancel/drain button for 5 seconds and see if it unlocks, do you have a full model #?

I don't know the exact model number. your solution did turn off the led but now the washer just clicks when I try to do any thing else
does it sound like the click is comming from the door lock?

My wife now tells me that she started a cycle then hit pause opened the door to put in an additional item. she the got a "DL" error the an "F" error the the control lock.


The clicking seem to be comming from the lower back portion of the washer

ok, DL error is the door lock . try unplugging this for 5 minutes and plug it back in to see if it resets.
