Took top panel off washer and unplugged wires from control and plugged them back in and washer works. Found out it would be easier to take top off to replace door switch than doing it from beneath door like I had first done. Also found troubleshooting sheet taped to inside of side panel.

It may be the door assembly

In the owners manual, it describes the issue, and possible fixes. its a communication error, and could also be due to something as simple as unplugged or loose wires.

Washer door latch


Hi,

Unplug your machine, remove the top panel, doublecheck all of the wiring is securley connected. Sometimes the wiring becomes loose due to the machine's vibration.

ERROR CODE F, then flash dl


F/dL - Door Lock Error

Condition: A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error. Check or repair the following:
- 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

Here is a way to gain access to your washer if the door is locked shut:
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement. You can also try to reset the CCU by unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes.

I hope this helps (remember to rating and leave a testimonial comment about this free answer) Thank you for using Fixya..

WE have Kenmore elite He3t Model Nol. 42926 203. We get an error code dL F. How do we correct this?


It is a door lock failure and it flashes after the door locking routine fails to lock the door after 6 attempts. Replace the door lock/latch assembly (part number 8182634) to solve the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel. Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harnesses.

Connect the wiring harness to the new door lock/latch assembly and install it back in place behind the front panel. the door lock/latch assembly and put the eased part of the door gasket back into position over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before putting back and securing the retaining hoop around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?


The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

Front loading Kenmore door will not click closed


Hi,

The problem, based on the info that door will not latch, is one of two possibilities, and one you should be able to identify after reading this reply.

If the "strike" on the door is intact, that only leaves the door latch/switch assembly.

The most common latch is the Frigidaire/Electrolux number 131763245 and second the Whirlpool made 8182634. You "kenmore" is one of those two, cross reference with your model to find out which one.

Hope this helps. If so, please take a second and rate the reply provided to you here at fixya.

Thank you and good luck.

It giving me an F22 code, what is that mean and how do I fix it?


"F22" is a door lock error. The washer locks the door at the beginning of the wash cycle. If, after 6 attempts, the door fails to lock, the error code is displayed. You can attempt to correct the problem by perform the following steps:

1. Unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main control board for the washer. Sometimes this is all that is required to correct some common momentary glitches. If the error code reappears after a CCU reset, proceed to step 2.
2. Check the door switch and locking mechanism for any obvious signs of broken or missing parts.
3. Check the wiring harness from the door latch to the CCU. You will need to remove the washer top panel for access. This is accomplished by UNPLUGGING the washer and removing the three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Verify that the connectors are in place and snug.

If all these preliminary steps still don't fix the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the door latch assembly. Replacements can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com. Use the "Search by Part Number" feature and look up part number 8182634.

If you need further assistance, or have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Door won't lock


There is a very small chance the door latch is bad.My opinion with this model is your control board may be out.If your door does click in when you close it then the lock will will activate by the control board.If it wont click shut at all then of course it wont be able to lock.In this case you do have to change the "Door Latch Assembly".
