How do I troubleshoot Whirlpool Duet Steam Front-Load Washer that has a Door Switch that has a Error?

If the spin basket spins freely, then it's time to rotate it. A garment could be stuck between the outer tub and the spin basket if not. Excess friction could be caused by a problem with the drive components. Make sure to inspect the drive components and replace them if necessary.

The door doesn't open for 3 consecutive cycles or the door switch says the door is open with the door lock engaged. If you've run 3 cycles without opening the door, it's time to close the door. Push on the door to make sure it's completely closed if the door switch indicates the door is open. Check the wire harness connections between the door lock/switch assembly and the main electronic control board before plugging the washer. If the wire harness is damaged, you can connect it or replace it. The door lock/switch assembly should be replaced if the wire connections are OK.
