    My front load kenmore elite quietpak 4 will not start, just makes a clicking noise and flashes F and then dl. I have unplugged and attempted to start again multiple times but get same msg with clicking sound and still will not start. This machine is 3 years old, cost thousands with the dryer and bases and is a piece of.....*^&(%$#@. I hate it. But cannot afford to change it out for a better product right now. Can someone assist?

There are 2 buttons that you need to press at the same time to get the lock to turn off.  Look for the little lock symbol and the lines to the buttons on the front of your machine.  I don't thin kyou will need to replace it...

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.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'DL' stands for Door Lock error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Dl flashes and won't restart


Hi. Without model # I can't be certain but, (UNPLUG machine) if you remove the panel under the door and reach up along the right side of the tub, you can feel a little lever with a lood on it to unlock the door so that you can atleast get your close out. It sounds like the door switch has gone bad.
I hope this helps. Please let me know.
