Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

DOOR WILL NOT LOCK-LTD readout dl then goes to f

This occurs in all wash cycles. Washer will not run. The door will not lock nor run, a clicking sound can be heard. It continues until all is cancelled. A&E Factory Service only comes to this isolated area once a week. They confirmed the scheduled appointment for today( 8:ooam thru 5:00pm) on Sunday but did not show or call to advise or cancell. NO local service availible can you give me a solution? I suspect a relay but have never dismantled a whirlpool washer. I do not have a repair manual. The 1-800-2531301, Techs have not been able to advise me about the LTD code, either. Help.

    Thank you, Your suggestions worked and I was able to do it myself. I've concluded that if your going to live in the boonies and you can't learn how to fix broken things then you just better do without them altogether. Thank You for your solution. KJM

Remove top (3 screws in back)press start button and wiggle the connectors on main control located along rear rail usually one of the large plugs on front edge (green or pink wires if i remember correctly) if moving one helps try wedging something like a large tooth pick or match stick under it to hold connection problem is actually in connection on control and can only be fixed by replacement or if you want to get in deeper try opening box and finding and soldering connection..sorry for the service problem

Whirlpool GHW9400 Door will not latch. Washer turns on, Starts clicking then flashes dL F


Hi, DL means Door Lock Failure while F is either (F80, 82,
84, 85).....

DL flashes if the following conditions occur:
  • Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
  • Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
  • Machine/motor control detects open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
  • Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in a locked state.

My washer has an F dl problem?


Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. The clicking sound that you hear is most likely the door lock. This error occurs because the door cannot be locked. The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

F dL symbol on Whirlpool duet HT


It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
