Door Lock Error on C-Series Dexter Washer

    I had several "Door Lock Error" on a one year old 80 # Dexter C-Series Washer​. I have never been there to see it; however, my attendants tell me that the clothes finish pretty wet. I am not sure if during the spin, the door connection loosens enough to cause the error.
    What is the error and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance.

    Go on Dexter web site. Very good video for adjustment. Never done one yet.

    I'd wiggle the door handle while the machine is operating to see if the problem re-occurs.

    On my speed queen MD2's, a metal component on the inside of the handle rubs every time the door is closed.  It eventually wears out and the microswitch fails to make contact because of the excessive play.  When a customer would raise or lower the handle mid cycle, it would stop the machine.

    I made some minor adjustments to compensate for the missing metal.
