Cannot remove central unit to clean

I have tried to remove the central unit to clean it. I was able to do so in the past. I can open the door and press the tab that says "Press". The unit will move a bit, but is stuck on the lefthand side, possibly where the little tube is. Thank you for any help, which I urgently need!

I finally gave up pulling on the central unit - so I just closed the door & it reset & I was then able to easily remove the central unit to clean it.

Two possibilities. You inturrpted the cycle and need to put it all together and turn it on and let it finish the cycle. If this does not work: It is possible that the gear motor is bad or it was overfilled and just can't compress the coffee in it. The brew unit has a small screw on the inside back rail. If you remove this small screw and pull out on the unit it seperates the unit from the receiver that is stuck to the boiler right now. If you can seperate this and depress the switch that the brew unit trips when in and with all the other parts in close the door and let it finish the cycle. If it does you should be able to reinsert the unit. If this does not work go on line and look for an authorized Saeco repar center they can help you.

Push the left side as your push the "Press" button. Push down and back. They do get stuck sometimes. Keep trying. Don't break it, but I used a screw driver one time. Be gentle. Take a deep breath.

Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?


The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

Clean the central unit whenever the coffee bean container is filled, or at least once a week. If the water hose seems dirty it is probably due to hard water and needs to be descaled.
Descaling is done with a special citric acid you can buy in any grocery store or dealer of such machines. follow the directions and run clean water through afterwards.

To clean the filter:
Switch off the machine and open service door
.
Remove grounds coffee container .
Remove central unit, by holding the handle and shortly pressing the PRESS key. Wash the central unit with hot water; do not use any solvent.
Make sure there are no coffee residues on the two steel filters: the upper filter can be removed by unloosening and turning the plastic pin anticlockwise using the tool supplied with your device. Dry thoroughly each central unit component, fit the filter again and tighten it properly with the screw .
Remove coffee rest drawer and clean it, using a non-abrasive solvent. Clean the service area thoroughly and fit the coffee rest drawer again. By holding the central unit by its handle, slide it back into its original position, making sure it is correctly engaged. Then close the door. Fit the coffee grounds container again.

good luck, stephen

DL error code


DL is a 'Door Lock' error code.
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. The Central Control Unit (CCU) will try to activate the lock 6 times before displaying the error.

Potential Causes
• Door Lock Mechanism has failed
• Wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Central Control Unit (CCU) has failed.

There really isn't much you can do except replace the defective parts. The door locks have been troublesome and have replaced some. But there are cases where the CCU will develop an internal intermittent connection to the door lock causing it to work then not work. Check your owners manual for limited warranty on the CCU. The door lock only warranted for 1 yr.
