Unplug from the outlet and wait about 5-10 minutes. When you put the plug back into the outlet, the door should unlock.

SOURCE: Door will not lock

Faulty Latch ,, i would order and replace the latch assy, you acess the latch by removingthe 4 screws in the dispensor assy, the n remove the door, andthe 2 screws opposit teh door hinge. then the front "u shaped" panel will come off and then just 2 5/16" screws on either side will release the main top assembly allowing you to tip it backwards and gaining acess to the latch assy

FL code on Washer


FL is a door lock code. open the soap dispenser door, and find the thin flourescent green, or bright red color nylon cord located in the front left or right areas of the dispenser area, this will allow you to manually release the door lock. Empty the washer, close the door and perform another drain and spin cycle, if the door lock still fails, you may need to have the door lock assy replaced, especially if the door lock is making a click, or buzzing soung like it wants to operate, if it's completely quiet than you may need the board replaced...Pleazer Appliance...

I am getting an FL code on my Samsung front-load washer. It happens as I am trying to start a new load. I have loaded the machine, added my soap, shut the door and push the start button. Then it makes this...


Hello Kelli Etienne,

You will need your model number.

"FL" is a lock error (failure)... DOOR LATCH.
Service folks at SEARS will tell you...
"you need a technician"...

I detest SEARS ... after being a faithful Craftsman dweeb
for years... I now find them pushy... distant... pricy
(not to mention incompetent (I had a FULL WARRANTY
but it didn't bother SEARS - Elite washer issue

(3 months @ laundromat... REALLY ANGRY (sorry)).

REGARDLESS their on-line LIBRARY is no-so-bad.
Samsung Front Load Washer Error Codes Sears PartsDirect

However... if you go to OTHER PARTS retailers
you will also find really great VIDEO GUIDES to help.
(same parts... EVERYWHERE... so shop PRICES)

I will only add: ALWAYS TAKE DETAILED PICTURES
BEFORE taking anything apart... (before).

Saves being PUZZLED later.

Go to these sites...
look up your model number & DOOR LATCH.

Not locking


I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click multiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure either that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cycle without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

Fl error code


The "FL" code indicates that the unit failed to lock the door, which would prevent the machine from running. If this happens again, close the door tightly and restart the cycle. If the code reappears, your washer may require service. What is the model number?

Code reads FL Door will not open. Ran spin cycle on empty to get water out after well went dry.


FL code indicates that the machine failed to detect that the door was locked. Perhaps the controller became confused when the fill failed (due to well). Try unplugging the machine for 15 minutes, and then plug back in. You may get the PF (Power Fail) code, but that is normal. You should be able to start a new cycle from this code.

If the door still will not open, please post back.
