LID LOCK FAULT
Fault is displayed if Lid Lock has not moved into locked position or motor cannot be powered.
Lid is not closed completely due to interference.
Check for lock interference with lock striker.
Wash media buildup (detergent, lint, etc.) is preventing the lock mechanism from sliding.
Main control detects open lid switch when attempting to lock.
Main control cannot determine if lid lock is in a locked state.

Perform the following checks if the washer does not lock (or unlock).
1. Perform the Lid Lock test under Manual Test Mode on page 9. The following steps assume that this step was unsuccessful.
2. Check lid lock mechanism for obstruction or binding. Repair as necessary.

I just had the same issue with my Whirlpool. The lid locked before vacation so I had to pry open the lid so my clothes wouldn't stay wet for a week. When I got back the "lid-lock" kept blinking red. We replaced the entire lid-lock mechanism ($56) and tried again with no progress. After discussions we thought to reset the master control because it still thinks the lid should be/is locked. In order to accomplish this we unplugged all connectors from the back panel (after unplugging from the wall) and plugged it back in. We had complete success and its running through its first cycle now. Cheers and good luck.

This just happened to us and we unplugged the washer and the red light turned off. We were then able to reset the settings. If you don't want this to happen to you never change your settings if the washer has already started.

SOURCE: control lock out light blinks, controls won't work

Hello David, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted..."control locked"...this is actually a fairly common problem with these washers (including Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Amana, (some)Kenmore to name a few built by Whirlpool) I hear about both on-line and doing on-site service.


The solution, however is usually pretty simple. As long as your washer is indeed the Whirlpool give this a try and let me know how it goes.

Press and hold the "END OF CYCLE /CYCLE SIGNAL" button as you count to 15...this will reset the control. (if your washer does not have the "end of cycle" button, please post back with a model number and I'll go from there)

Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info provided here and a testimony on your experience here at FixYa today is appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light

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 !!

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.
