My Frigidaire model no LTF2940FSI will not fill with water...any suggestions?

The unit needs to sense the door lock before allowing to fill,start unit and listen for the door lock system, if the lack fail to either sense the door or the prongs on the door are broken, this will happen.

The door to my mah8700 will not close and seal properly.. The brackets holding the left hand side of door seem to have some corrosion and rust and i have to push that side in and then try to close the door...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You should be able to have the brackets changed and the door mechanism adjusted. The washer is lacking a good earth return for you to be getting small electric shocks. Both should be easy to be fixed, the first by an engineer but the second will possibly need an electrician UNLESS the engineer finds that the bad earth is inside the machine and fixes it;-0)
Good luck,
John C

I am getting error DE in my washing machine, need solution for this. Kindly give me the service error code for LG WF-T7516HN top loader

HI there,

Well most of the times problem is in the door lock may be it's faulty. or it could be the door lack has failed/is failing or the control board, try closing the door properly and see if it works....... If further you have the same problem then you need to change the door lock (switch).

Good Luck

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Lid does not lock. When it DOES, it beeps and shows "dl" on the screen

On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Washer won't work

This code indicates a "door lock" error. The door lock switch may be faulty. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Make sure the electrical connections are clean and tight at the switch. Check out the video at the link I'm
It may assist you in the project. I sure hope so and I'm sorry for your trouble. Best wishes and hope this helped.

Dl on screencliccking noise from behind washer won't run

That is the solenoid clicking. dl is a door lock error, and you can test and replace the door lock switch, but I am doubtful that will correct the problem. I really hope it does, but I have seen the dl code with the solenoid clicking at the rear of the(Whirlpool Duet) washer before and it was a faulty control board. I hope I am wrong, but... You can try unplugging and resetting the washer. In the case I saw, the machine would reset, but gradually got to a point that it had to be reset numerous times. (too many). Anyway, I hope I am wrong and best wishes. (Don't forget to test the door lock switch. Use a multimeter and check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped.

Maytag MAH5500B, FL code and door locked.

Check your drain and the drain line all the way to the pump. Here is some info on the F1 code.
FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for "FL" to be displayed
With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Dryer won't start

possibly an issue with the door lock/latch macha nism. not recognizing the door being closed.not an easy one to trouble shoot this way but id look into the a few basics, is the door closing fully? is the catch /latch assy on the door intact??? and lastly appox 3 inches up on the unit itself above where the door lock hole is, theres supposed to be a small black "buttin" for lack of better term. that "button needs to be depressed by door when closed, if for some reason its broken off so you cant push it in, (p roblably sticks out a quarter inch or so) if thats not there youll need to replace the atch assy

Says Door is locked but isn't

I went to and there was my problem word for word. I then called the GE repair man who came a day earlier and did nothing for us. He'll be back on Monday to fix the problem that I solved for him.

Check to see that the switch is actully being activated when door is closed. I wiggled the door upward to notice the machine started working. I then wedged a piece wood or wooden pencil in the botton of the door crack and that caused the switch to activate.

Switch is okay but the door alignment needed to be fixed.
