Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

yes that is a door lock error , the door lock assembly needs to be replaced most likely, Unplug the washer for 5 minutes restore power and see if it corrects itself if not the door lock assembly will have to be replaced. If you would like to try and repair it yourself give me the model number and I will give you the replacement part number a link to order it from and instructions to replace it. Let me know.
