SOURCE: KENMORE ELITE WASHER error (DL) then (F)

The "Fdl" error code indicates a problem with the door latch assembly. The clicking sound you hear is the door latch attempting to latch. If it fails to latch, the wash cycle will not start and the error code and audible beep will occur. There should be a tech sheet inside the washer. It's usually located behind the bottom panel under the door, or along the inside of the casing on either the left or right hand side. The tech sheet will have a list of error codes, procedures on how to perform diagnostics, and troubleshooting hints. It's strongly recommended that you leave the tech sheet inside the washer, so you don't lose it.

Repairclinic.com carries the door latch for about $50 and is listed as item number 1094190.

Searspartsdirect carries it for slightly less for about $43 and lists it under the "Door and Latch Parts" as item number 7 (part #8181700).

If you go to my profile and click on "Tips and Tricks" I have a posting there on how to change the door latch on a front loader. It's a very simple repair that any Do-It-Yourselfer can accomplish.

If you can't find the instructions you need, or need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: F DL Error Code

If you were already experiencing the F11 error code and now experiencing the Fdl error, this more than likely is a failure of the Main Control Board. F11 is a serial communications error associated with the Main Control Board, while the Fdl error is either a failed Main Control Board and/or door latch. You can replace the door latch first to see if the error goes away, but I would almost bet you have a control board problem since you were already experiencing an intermittent error code associated to it. Let me know if you have any further questions.

SOURCE: error code of F and DL

"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This indicates that you have a failure of the door latch, the latch pin on the door, interconnecting wiring, or the Central Control Unit (CCU). A physcial inspection of the door latch should be done first to determine, if there is any physical damage to any of the latch components. Next, unplug the washer and remove the top panel of the washer by locating and loosening the three screws that hold the panel n place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back then lift off. Perform a physical inspection of all the electrical connections on the latch and trace them to the CCU and do the same. Often, simply diconnecting each connector plug one at a time and reseating them can clear this problem. If you determine that you need to replace the door latch, the following link explains how:

You can purchase replacements at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service, so shop them all for the best price.

If you need further assistance in troubleshooting this problem, there is a technical data sheet included with you washer. The tech sheet is located behind the bottom panel directly below the door. If not located behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The sheet lists all the fault codes, diagnostics procedures and troubleshooting tips.

If the door latch checks out good, the CCU will require replacement.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My maytag bravos washer is flashing DL, what does this mean, its not spinning!


The "dL" error code appears when an item inside the washer prevents the lid from locking properly. Open the washer and readjust any items that may be hitting the lid. The error code should go away once you properly close the lid

What does code dl mean


The "dL" error code means that the door/lid can't lock. Check to make sure nothing is stopping the lid from closing and locking. If everything looks ok, then you either have a bad door lock or a bad control board.

For about a week now, my Kenmore Elite top loading washing machine has the error code dL at the end of the cycle. There is a lot of clicking noises and then it displays the code.


Means a failed lid lock mechanism. You should replace the lid switch in the unit which will alleviate the dl error code. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks Rick

What does f dl mean


Hello, F DL 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.

Potential Causes
• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and
Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Ohm out the door lock solenoid and the door lock switches. This is most conveniently done at the central control board--use the wiring diagram/tech sheet to locate the proper pins to test from. Unplug the washer before starting work.

Thanks

Door is locked dL error code


DL error code means the door is locked. The door lock mechanism may need to be replaced. I would not recommend attempting this on your own I suggest you call a service tech.

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl


The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate
