I just finished fixing this problem on mine. DL = Door Latch. i am guessing you hear 6 clicks (processor trying to latch door) then the error. while i was poking around inside the unit i found a service manual inside (behind the bottom cover, remove 3 screws to gain access). the service manual reminded the tech to always try unplugging and replacing the connectors on the processor since oxidation is a major problem. the manual also noted the connector numbers (DS3... i think). i removed the top cover (3 screws on the back, slide back, lift off), found the processor, unplugged and reseated the connectors (did some others just for good measure), plugged the unint back in (ALWAYS UNPLUG BEFORE WORKING ON IT), and it worked. in case that doesn't fix it, you couldtry replacing the latch assy for about $50. good luck

After a power outage the oven does not work and F1 code appears.


Hello,

the F1 code is a universal service code to ALL brand ovens and it means that one of the buttons on the touch pad has shorted out. You can clear the code by pushing clear/cancel button and if doesnt reappear it was fluke, if it reappears within 15 minutes and once again you push clear and that cycle repeats, the touch pad must be replaced

Good luck,
Gene

Try un-plugging the dishwasher (check for cord under the sink) or turn off the breaker to it to re-set the control board. If this does not resolve your issue you may have a defective key panel.

Laptop Display flashs then screen locks up


I wouldn't suspect its anything other than your lcd or inverter. Connecting it to an external monitor cements it. If it was the video card or motherboard it would have certainly done it again. For it to appear locked up would just mean the picture you are watching was the last in its memory to post. Meaning, if the inverter or lcd start having problems, the last thing it was told to display would appear to be frozen to whoever is watching but in actuality its the display not machine that is frozen. Try ejecting the cd tray. Better yet set your power button shut down when pushed. Then have it have another lock up watching a video then push the power button or eject to see if it responds. Then you will know forsure. Hope that helps.

Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer - "Control Locked"


Adjacent to the "Control Locked" light is the DRAIN/SPIN button. Push it in and hold for 3 seconds. This should unlock the control panel. If it doesn't, let me know.

This is a designed feature of the washer to lock the controls to prevent small children from accidentally turning the washer on or manipulating the controls in any way. The control can be locked by holding the DRAIN/SPIN button in for seconds, and released the same way. If someone leans against the button this can also occur. Hopefully this will be an easy fix for you. I hope this helps.

Electrical problem


Teecee, F11 is a communication error between the main board and the motor control board. The main board is on top and the motor control board is behind the lower panel. Sometimes the harness to these boards become loose causing this error. You would have to get at them and reseat the connections. F dl has to do with the door lock mechanism. You might of just had the door open when you reset the machine. To get at the main board on top you have to remove the 3 screws in back for the top. It will then slide back and off. To get at the motor control board, you will have to remove the bottom panel. The board will be in the back. Catriver..post back.
