There are a couple of things to try. The first one will most likely resolve your problem.
Unplug the machine and go to the back. On the back cover, you will see another cover, about 4 inches x 4 inches. That cover is just held in with two plastic latches. Just flex them and remove that small cover. Inside there, you will see 2 memory sticks. Just move the white tabs outward and remove both memory sticks, just note which is the top and bottom stick, it does make a difference.
With the memory sticks removed, plug the machine back in and turn it on. Allow it to power up. Once the machine powers up, shut the machine down , insert the memory sticks, then power the machine back up. Your machine should return to normal operation.
The memory you removed is the difference between a M20 and an M20i.
Now, if that doesn't work, you may have a shorted heating element in fuser. To eliminate that issue, you have to open the right hand door, on the upper , ( I would say 2/3rds) of the rear side you will see a thin plastic cover with a white wire running under it. Remove that silver screw, pop the white connector out and try starting the machine with the fuser unplugged, you will most likely get a message that says " Open Heat Error" but it should not reset.
If that is the case and the fuser is bad, you will want to go onto google and look up ' the parts drop'. Call them and ask for Britt,he will have the part at a better price than Xerox. You can't just replace that heat roller, its a weird setup on the M20.
I dont work for the parts drop, but I have done business with them for years and they are the best in the business.
If both of those fail to resolve your problem let me know. Would be very odd if one of those 2 items doesn't recsolve your issue.
Most likely the memory removal will resolve it. Please let me know so I can be sure this helped.

Kems307dbl6 KitchenAid microwave staying on after you turn it off.

If the magnetron is still operating when off, needless to say , its pretty dangerous. The door lock unit usually has at least 3 microswitches to ensure that the door is closed and ready to operate. 1 of the switches is a safety switch which will cause a dead short if the door is forced open or something goes wrong with the door not closing correctly. This will "blow" the internal fuse in the machine. If the magnetron keeps going, its possible one of these switches have failed or there is an electronic fault causing power to the magnetron in the off position although, I would strongly feel this would be unlikely. These machines are made with a lot of safety devices.

What does dl code indicate?

Hello. The error code means there is a problem with the door lock. The lock *may* be working correctly but the main board is not getting the indication of lock position(open/closed). Or, the lock may have failed completely--when you initiate a cycle, do you hear the lock engage? Is the door, in fact, truly locked? The lock is really just a simple electro-magnet. When energized, it magnetically pushes or pulls a lever so you can't open the door. Also, it contains the ability to let the main board know when it's safe to start the wash cycle. I hope I helped you!

My whirlpool whitemagic washing machine top panel board doesnt work or no power?

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If there is no power check the outlet and mains wire. If not the control board is a suspect., check the door switch which needs to close for the program to activate.

My hotpoint washing machine is not registering the door is closed so it will not start the programme

If the door is closed and the limit switch is contacting to the program controller to start then the program controller by default must initiate the inlet valve to open and allow the water to flow into the washer. So check voltage at the inlet valve if voltage is present without the valve functioning the valve is faulty. Also unless water flows and the water level is detected only then the program will initiate the motor.

Whirlpool ghw9100 Door lock solenoid 60 ohm and 126 ohm? Duet job aid says 60 ohms on contact point 3 to 2 and 3 to 1 that is not possible because the two windings double the resistance the way its made. ...

The terminal numbering of the door lock and unlock solenoids solenoid looks messed up and your resistance reading is correct and the solenoids are good as long as you get 60 ohms both on 3-2 and 2-1 and 120 ohms on 3-1.

You stated, as per live chat discussion, that the door never locks to start a cycle. The door locking routine starts only if the door switch contact is closed (refer to page 6-2 of Job Aid L-68). This could mean the door switch contact never closes for the door locking routine to be initiated and a wash cycle can start or the CCU is not detecting it closed.

Check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness (door switch, door lock main switches, and solenoids wire harnesses) including the connectors. Replace the wire harness if a discontinuity or any other issue that might jeopardize its function is found. Proceed with the troubleshooting if no issue is found with the harness or if the problem is not resolved with the replacement of the harness.

Reinstall the door lock and switch assembly, reconnect the wires, put the door gasket back over the outer lip of the door opening, and close the door. Reconnect the door lock main switches and the door lock/unlock solenoids harness except the door switch harness. Jump a wire between the door switches terminal connections (adjacent terminals) on the central control unit (CCU) then reconnect power and start the machine.

The door locking routine should start and eventually lock the door and start the cycle if the issue is with the door switch not closing. Replace the door lock and switch assembly if that is the case. The problem is in the CCU not detecting the door switch closing and needs to be replaced if door locking routine still fails to start, lock the door, and start the cycle.

If the door locking routine starts and the door lock seems engaging but fault code "FdL" flashes and the door is locked, unplug the machine then check the continuity of the door lock main switches at the wire harness connector in the CCU (refer to page 5-3 of Job Aid L-68). The problem is also with the door lock and switch assembly if there's no continuity in any of the door lock main switches. Otherwise, the problem is in the CCU not detecting door lock main switches closing and needs to be replaced if there's continuity in the switches.

With the fault "FdU" flashing when the door lock main switches bypassed, the CCU is certainly detecting the switches closed. This eliminates the possibility of the CCU not detecting the door lock main switches closing. It leaves only the possibility that the door switch is not closing or the CCU is not detecting it closing.

Freezer seal

Good day,
The first step is to make sure the machine is leveled properly.
It should not be allowed to lean to the left. As well, the adjusters should be set, so there is a slight tilt to the rear, so the doors have a tendency to close on their own.

The freezer gasket should be cleaned, as well as the frame it makes contact with.
The reason this happens is a lot of air is pushed into the machine when the main door is closed. There are 2 openings between the main compartment and the freezer, so the air is forced into the freezer compartment, wanting to push it open.
If the gasket on the freezer fits well, then the problem, is the gasket's magnets have become weak.

The repair is replacing the gasket. However, many people find ways to use the machine by adjusting their habits to ensure the door closes. One example is to keep a hand on the freezer door when closing the main door, or, closing the fridge door slower.

In any case it's your decision as to what you want to do.

I couldn't get the washer to start (HE 4T). It

DL stands for Door Lock failure, if your door isnt closing all the way, check to make sure your hinges are lining up and that one of the arms has not broken off on the door, there should be 2 arms going into the door lock. whats common on these is that the door latch has trouble unlocking so it is forced open and now the door latch mechinism is stuck in the locked position and cant re-open. problems with this lock opening and closing- 9 times out of ten, come from a main computer failure to send power to the door lock. this can be temporairily fixed by re-seating the door latch wire harness in the main computer, but its usually recommended to buy a new computer since this problem has been address on the new series of computer. there is no recall on this board at the moment. estimated cost $250-$400

Garage door will inconsistenly not close

It is normal for that LED by the learn button to flash randomly. It can also flash a code to help with diagnosis. The codes are 1 to 6 flashes followed by a pause and then repeats. A rapid flash is a sign it is receiving a radio signal but not necessarily the correct one to operate the door. If when your door doesn't close properly the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. The sensor must be pointed at one another and sometimes can be off just a hair and will cause intermittent problems. A slight tweaking of the sensors will cure this problem. The 'down force' adjustment can be set too low and cause the door not to close sometimes. This can be increased to overcome this problem. This problem will not cause the main light to flash. The other possibility is the RPM sensor. This is the printed circuit board that senses when the door runs into something. I have never seen one intermittent but that doesn't mean it's not possible. I hope this helps you.
