Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer won't start


Hello Ameliafaith,

E-Z job...

If you take your model on line... to SEARS
(I don't ordinarily recommend)... BECAUSE THEY COULD ACTUALLY ... decode your ABREVIATED part number...

110. blah blah blah... (45986??)

The other sites actually have helpful VIDEOS...
But I already wasted enough time on this floundering with your
erroneous number (wrong no.)...

You will see these parts are reasonably priced and
very popular.. meaning they INDEED FAIL ... alot.

Kenmore elite model # 110.45088400. We set a cycle, washer starts beeping and reads F then blinks to DL. We hit pause to clear then try to restart while it makes clicking sounds and it continues to read...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'DL' stands for Door Lock error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a Kenmore Elite washer. I keep getting a F 14 code and a DL F code. What do I Do?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I understand that 'F14' for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines decodes as 'EEPROM failure' (control unit) and 'DL' is Door Lock- a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor.
Sorry but I fear both F14 and DL require a service engineer's attention ;-0(
Good luck,

F dL code message


Hi, this is a failed door lock alert. the FdL code represents this malfunction in the door lock mechanism. the unit will not operate if the door lock cant engage the latch. replace the door lock mechanism asap. this will fix the issue.

My kenmore elite smartwash/he4t (error code)


Try shutting off the machine. Switch off Usually the door opens in 2 minutes or so. Do not force open the door. There may be instructions in your book to open the door manually. It could mean unscrewing somewhere.
