    I actually fixed it before I saw this idea. I ended up pressing the "end of cycle" button and it cancelled the lock up. Thank you,

Describe your Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer Problem the control lock button is on


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE/CYCLE SIGNAL button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Code dl-f machine will not start up, usually you hear the door lock and then water enters- but door does not lock which is why im thinking dl stands for door lock? i unpluged machine hoping it would reset...


Hello.

You are correct in that the fault code stands for door lock error. Here's the book answer:

Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

Potential Causes

• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Replace failed component.

Try pressing pause/cancel several times to reset it.

Best regards, --W/D--

Solution: Hold down the power and delay start button at the same time. In about 3-4 seconds a beep will occur and the red key lock will turn off. I think it is a problem in the machines firmware. I just guessed at what combination of buttons the engineers used to do a firmware reset. In any case it worked for me.
