Question about Kenmore 4292x Front Load Washer

Code F dL on Kenmore Elite HE 3t

My washer stopped working with the above code.  I have tried the solutions posted previously (unsucessfully), which would probably work fine, but for the small detail of not being able to remove the screws.  Is there some trick?  I have tried both allen wrenches and screwdrivers with no success.  Please help if possible.  The washer is full of water and there are now sopping wet clothes in my sink.

 

Thanks!

The screws are a #20 torx bit. Once you take those out, remove the panel. Behind it is a white plastic pump. I usually remove the torx screw in it too so it can come out further and I can get a bucket under it. As you unscrew the front of it counter clock wise, drain out the water SLOWLY. Then clean debris from the trap.

KENMORE ELITE OASIS- comes up with a code: DL ( REPEATEDLY - CHECKED THE LOAD- BECAUSE IT STOPS- WON'T RESTART.


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Where can I find a door latch for the Kenmore HE 3t


"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This is an indication of either a defective door latch, door catch, defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the problem:

I have a Kenmore Front Load Washing machine and I am getting an error message f-35. what does that mean? It is an HE 3T Steam. Once I get this error code, the unit stops and unlocks.


This washer seems to have multiple solutions for the f35 error,
Unplug the machine for an hour to reset the computer

Clean the filter The panel below the door has 3 screws (mine was a star shaped screw). The white cap screws off. yopu may have to cancell the error using "stop".

Kenmore elite HE4 has fault code of dl and F?


F-DL code is for your washer and if the main control has not been replaced then that is what I would replace most of the time F-DL is also seen with a F-11 code later in the cycle, i am sure you hear the washer try to lock the door a few times and pop up F-DL. the main control part # is based off of the model#

Received an error code dl f on my Kenmore Elite 45986. Replaced the locking mechanism and I am still receving the same error and results. It just clicks and gives this error code. Thanks "dl F" error code...


The "Fdl" error code indicates a problem with the door latch assembly. The clicking sound you hear is the door latch attempting to latch. If it fails to latch, the wash cycle will not start and the error code and audible beep will occur. There should be a tech sheet inside the washer. It's usually located behind the bottom panel under the door, or along the inside of the casing on either the left or right hand side. The tech sheet will have a list of error codes, procedures on how to perform diagnostics, and troubleshooting hints. It's strongly recommended that you leave the tech sheet inside the washer, so you don't lose it.
Repairclinic.com carries the door latch for about $50 and is listed as item number 1094190.

Searspartsdirect carries it for slightly less for about $43 and lists it under the "Door and Latch Parts" as item number 7 (part #8181700).

If you go to my profile and click on "Tips and Tricks" I have a posting there on how to change the door latch on a front loader. It's a very simple repair that any Do-It-Yourselfer can accomplish.

If you can't find the instructions you need, or need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace the CCU it is your only choice. They do not make bandaids for washing machines. If you dont fix it you will just have a non working machine soon

F 11 Error Code


The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
