Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I cleaned all electrical connections with electrical motor cleaning spray and that did the trick.

I posted a complaint on December 31st about the error "DL". After leaving the wash machine sit for awhile out of frustration my husband & I went to look at it one more time. He went to hit normal as the wash cycle & we got the same error message so he proceded to cancel the error & he hit the heavy duty button & then start & then it was fine & it started to wash. It was a simple solution that seemed to have worked but it would have been nice to have some troubleshooting help from the company that sold me the appliance but seeing that I was out of warranty by 2 days they would not help me. Try this & see if this helps.

I had a dl-F error message. It would click 4 or 5 times and stop. I took the top cover off and checked all the connections to the door lock and the main panel. The screws for the door latch had loosend too. It is working now.

My husband and I visited this same website, and we found out that "dL/F" means "door lock failure." We followed the advice of one of the customers. We took the top panel off our washing machine (Kenmore Elite H3), and we made sure all of the wiring was securely connected. (Make sure you unplug your machine first!) It worked! We think the wires may have jiggled loose over time. Hope this helps!

Dl meand door lock. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error. 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 Replace failed component.

Hello and welcome to FixYa
DL f is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the issue is resolved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
