Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Code DL & F appears when i push any cycle button. Will not respond to anything i try.
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
