I had the same problem. Turned out, electronic panel behind the door had spring action malfunctioned because of misplaced spring, which in turn caused panel to not generate a signal which, stopped the whole cycle.
Here is what I did to fix the problem- 1. Open the door 2. Remove the ring behind rubber-cover on the door. 3. Reach out to the inside-right of the door. 4. Remove the panel after removing electric connections. 5. Fix the spring action. 6. Put everything back and start the machine over.

What is code FDL


FDL code is a door lock code on these washers, but be advised, the older models had an issue with the main control boards loosing connection at the soldered joints for the door switch. They would loose solder, and the board would think the fault was the door lock and it was actually the board.

GIVING CODE FDL?


If the door fails to lock after six (6) attempts "Fdl" will display. The "Fdl" error code indicates the door failed to lock or the control does not detect the door being locked. The likely failure is the door lock mechanism. There is always a chance there could be a loose wire connection between the door lock mechanism and the Central Control Unit (CCU) causing the error too.

Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader F-11 and FDL codes


yes!! the F/11 is triggered under high voltage conditions like high speed spinning. The part is called the MCU motor control unit. if it goes into failure while using your machine and locks the door, just wait 3 minutes and the door will unlock after the MCU resets. Try using you machine with a low speed spin for awhile.

My kenmore elite smartwash flashes f and dl when i try and run the wash cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error fdl means a Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

It has occurred due to
1. Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
2. Door switch/lock unit failure. To unlock it follow the steps—
a. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
b. Check door switch/lock unit.
c. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Please revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

If sound like a lid switch issue. Open the top of the washer to get an access to the lid switch(located near the doorframe). Look for a loose wire or a broken switch. In case there is no loose wire or broken switch, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
