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

Hard to lock door

Lubricate latch and handle mechanisms first with penetrating oil until all works well, then re-lube with white lithium grease to prevent future failure. It may be necessary to remove inner door panel if you can't get to the sticking part.

My central locking doesnt work but the fuses are ok

VW has this funky door lock module which is essentially a bunch of micro-switches. Over time, the solder joints loosen up and break - you may find that the doors will lock sometimes, if you slam the door hard and the switches make contact again.

Good luck - mine haven't worked for years, as I just can't seem to find the time/motivation to tear the door apart and fix it. But if you're so inclined, here's a step-by-step on how to do it:

I slammed the passenger door too hard and now the radio doesnt stay on when key is turned off, the auto lock on that door doesnt work and the dome light wont come on 2007 ford escape

I`d check the flexible wiring between the door and the car to make sure it hasn`t been trapped or snapped.

Also check the fuses to make sure one (or more) haven`t blown

Bosch WFK 2401 Need to slam door several times to lock door

Sounds like you need the electric "door interlock" replaced. It is a simple matter of seperating the front of the machine enough to unplug the interlock mechanism, remove the two screws holding the mechanism in place and remove it from the back, reverse the procedure to install the new "updated" replacement part (- Bosch #170935 btw. about $37.00 from Sears). - time: approx 1/2 hour if you aren't mechanically inclined.
