Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore HE4t front-loading washer with a door lock that is stuck in the locked position. We can still wash clothes and everything works fine if we use a chair to keep the door propped shut. We were getting the F11 and DL codes before this happened. We have figured out how to get the bottom panel open, but not sure what to do next. Please help! Thanks in advance if you know how to fix this.
With panel off reach up to lock location pull down on small tab door latch will click (at this point door would pop open if it were closed ) retry operation to see if ok if code dl reappear may to replace door lock if f11 may need new control module under top rear..ck wires first ..good luck

Tips for a great answer:
Hello and welcome to FixYa
DL f is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the issue is resolved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
