Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls open the lower access panel (bottom of your washer) by removing the 3 torx screws. There would be a sheet that lists the error codes. The panel pulls forward and down, inside mounted on the right side taped to that inner panel would be the above described sheet. Additionally, to my knowledge, this indicates a door latch fault, the machine cannot activate the lock or senses that the door is not closed or the door is not locked.

In some instances, the error code F/DL could be triggered be a loose component. This could be that the plastic fitting on the door is loose and therefore will not latch on the locking assembly or the locking assembly itself is loose. You could then try opening and closing the door a couple of times.

Should this be not corrective, then the logic controller board may require close checking.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Maytag Brovo 300 seies washer display says dl and will not wash


The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

Washer trouble


F DL is a code for door lock failure. Either the door latch is bad or the main control is not sensing the door latching and is giving the code. Many times it is a bad connection where the door latch wires connect to the main board.
Post back with any questions.
Thanks/mike

Washer wont turn on. code is F dL. any thoughts?


Hi,

"dl" indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:
  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Thank you !!

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl


The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate

I am getting an DL F code on my front loader


"dL" indicates Door Lock Failure: 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 lock is in a locked state.
Check for lock interference with lid or lock bezel

Washer trouble


That is a door lock failure code..which means either the door latch assy or in the worst cast the main computer (ccu) has failed. Make sure the strike on the door is not broken and try the latch first.
