My Samsung washing machine has an error code, it shows DS or D5 on the display. What does this fault code mean? It is coming up on my display panel and it will not go away. I am wondering what may be wrong with my Samsung washer. Can you also tell me how to clear this error code?
The fault code you are getting on your Samsung front load washer is dS error code. The display may look like D5 but the true error code is dS. The Samsung washer dS error code means that “The door was opened while the washer was running” OR “The washer thinks the door is open or unlocked during the wash cycle”.
To fix this error in the most simple way, Close the door tight and restart the wash cycle. If the error dS reappears after restarting the wash cycle, try unplugging the washer for 5 minutes to clear the error code.
If the Samsung washer error code dS does not go away after simply shutting the washer door or unplugging the washer, you may have another issue.
If the door open error dS displays at all times, there may be something obstructing the door switch, you may have a malfunctioning door lock switch assembly, a faulty door latch striker, or other problem.
If the dS error on your Samsung front load washer does not go away:
1 – Unplug the washer for 5 to 10 minutes. Unplugging the washer will allow the capacitors on the control board to discharge the energy. If the caps discharge then the control board should completely reset.
2 – Make sure there is nothing blocking the door switch where the door and the washer meet when shut. If there is a clump of lint or similar, this can cause the error code dS as it may NOT detect that the door is fully closed.
3 – Be sure the door switch and the striker are not damaged or loose. If any component that involves LOCKING the washer door is loose, dirty, cracked, or damaged, you can get the dS error code.
4 – Use diagnostics mode to cycle the door lock assembly open and closed. If you test the door lock using diagnostic mode, you can be sure that the door switch itself is bad and not another part on your Samsung washer.
5 – If all the above did not work to clear the error code or find the problem, the door lock assembly may be faulty. Check the switch itself and the wires that go to and from it. If you find any type of damage or the switch is not working, replace it per the new door switch instructions.
