To get access to the door lock, all you have to do is take the boot off the front, and you should be able to reach between the cabinet and the tub to get to the door lock. There is also two phillips screws that hold it to the cabinet.

Oh, there is a spring that goes around the boot to hold it to the cabinet, just take a flat head screw driver and slide it off.

Good luck.

My kenmore elite HE 4t washing machine will not start. error message dL. It has happen before but I was able to get it started and working for several weeks till now.


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. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

My Kenmore HE-4t washer will not begin the cycle, after I choose it, it clicks and then flashes "F", then "dL"


F DL is a Door Lock Error it mean that the door cannot be locked this could be caused by a locking mechanism malfunction, a wiring problem or a problem with the CCU(central control unit)

Try checking what you can see of the lock mechanism visually and make sure nothing is obstructing or jamming it. Outside of that I would recommend calling a service tech. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I couldn't get the washer to start (HE 4T). It


DL stands for Door Lock failure, if your door isnt closing all the way, check to make sure your hinges are lining up and that one of the arms has not broken off on the door, there should be 2 arms going into the door lock. whats common on these is that the door latch has trouble unlocking so it is forced open and now the door latch mechinism is stuck in the locked position and cant re-open. problems with this lock opening and closing- 9 times out of ten, come from a main computer failure to send power to the door lock. this can be temporairily fixed by re-seating the door latch wire harness in the main computer, but its usually recommended to buy a new computer since this problem has been address on the new series of computer. there is no recall on this board at the moment. estimated cost $250-$400

Kenmore elite smartwash HE 4T control lock


The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.

I am getting a dl w/an f error


"dL" indicates Door Lock Failure: dL flashes if the following conditions occur:
-> Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
-> Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
-> Machine/motor control detects open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
-> Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lock is in a locked state.
Check for lock interference with lid or lock bezel
