Question about Whirlpool Gold Duet GHW9400P 3.8 Cu. Ft. Front-Loading Washer
My washer is blinking and beeping dL F at me. I pout in a moderate sized load and did not over fill with detergent. Have tried running plain water hrough the detergent recepticle. Still beeping and blinking and not washing. Machine is smarter than I am -- how do I get it operational?
The dl means doorlock. These machines are notorious for bad solder joints in the main control board in the door lock circuit. You could have a bad door latch but I doubt it.
You can keep trying to start it and sometimes it will work and sometimes not.
Remove the top of the washer. It is held on by three screws at the rear of the top. Slide back and lift up.
You will see the control at the top rear of machine. There are two connectors that plug to the board with pink wires. The board will be marked dl1 and dl2 where they plug in. Wiggle these connectors and try the machine again.
If your machine is less then 2 years old the board may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for details.
Post back and let me know what happens.

The Kenmore HE4T washer does not have a reversible door. The matching dryer would have a reversible door.
Some newer washers do have a reversible door but it is still a very small number of washer that allow you to reverse the door.
You can not reverse the door on an HE4T washer.
