Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
On Whirlpool duets, and the Kenmore HE series starting with the HE3 - HE5.
A common misdiagnosis is to replace the door latch when the user gets an F-DL error, or an F-11 & F-DL intermittently. If the machine shows an F-DL, and you hear a distinct clicking as the board attempts to latch the door just prior to the code appearing, the most common problem here is the door lock relay on the CCU. A good way to confirm is: after pressing start, while the CCU is attemting to latch the door, with the top cover removed, gently tap the top of the CCU with a screwdriver handle (or any blunt object) this will often free the relay. I've seen MANY door latches put in, only to replace the CCU a few days later.
