Press 'pause' & 'reset' together for about 5 seconds. The lock should come off. This is the child lock.

Washer sometimes will not work and a code comes on f dl what does this mean?


The DL code indicates a problem with the door lock. These washers need to lock the door before they fill with water. Then the door will unlock at the end of the cycle. The problem can be with the lock, the sensor that detects the lock status or the main control unit not receiving the lock message. Sometimes the wiring is the problem with the unit.

When the DL code comes on, can you pull open the door as easily as when you open the washer before starting the machine? If you can, then check if the wiring is sending the appropriate current to the lock. If the power is there, replace the lock. If the door has actually locked, then the problem is with another part of the system. Most washers will have a sheet with the wiring diagram and expected readings inside the machine near then main control board. This is accessed from the back of the machine above the wash tub.

I hope this helps.

What is an error code of DL?


F/dL error - Door Lock Error

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
  • Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door

If all the connections are good replace the CCU.

It blinks dl and f


FdL code is the door lock code. The machine is unable to lock the door. The problem is in the circuit board located on the inside top of the machine. You can check for wires that may have come off (unplugged) on the board.

Error code dl f, have tried turing power off, checking the door, and going to drain spin cycle--no spin---hit option button 4 times--- this only makes a clicking sound and then gives error code dl f


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or "F dl"means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

I think Duets have a propensity to have door lock failures...Why removing the surge suppressor would make a difference I have no idea.

Kenmore HE3t DL code


My husband and I had this same problem, but after visiting this website and reading through some of th posted solutions, we were able to fix our problem. Our 3-year-old Kenmore Elite H3 would not start on any cycle. It kept flashing the error code "dL/F", which we found out means "door lock failure." Taking advice, we unplugged our machine, removed the top panel, and rechecked the wiring. It worked! We think the wiring may have become loosened over time due to the jiggling vibration of our machine. Hope this helps you!
