F28 means your washer is locked and not unlocking. To unlock your washer take the bottom access panel off by removing the 3 bottom screws.
Reach up near the latching assembly & Attached to the door latch is a little plastic pull lever. Pull down on this lever and open the door. Unplug your washer for 60 seconds and plug your washer back in. If the error re-occurs you need to replace your door lock.

    Your Service manual should also be behind the kickplate when you take it off.

    To enter service mode and determine which sensor is malfunctioning....

    Close the door.
    Select any key (except stop),
    using the same key; Press/Hold-4
    seconds, Release-4 seconds, Press/Hold-4 seconds, Release-4 seconds,
    Press/Hold-4 seconds,
    all the led's will flash for 5 seconds.
    Any failure codes
    will display in estimate time remaining and the led's will flash.
    Press the same
    key to advance to the next failure code. If the console does nothing the same
    failure code was recorded multiple times.
    When there aren't any more failure
    codes all the lights on the console will turn on for five seconds then check the service manual for the corresponding error code.

Error code shows F71. door is locked and there are clothes in there soaking in water that I need to get out!! what does F71 mean and how do if solve the problem


Hi.

Sorry for the late reply.

F71 points at a connection error between button pad and control board.

Please read the indications in this article: F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes...

If you get similar problems in the future, and machine gets stuck in error mode with clothes inside, empty water from tub disconnecting the drain filter, located behind a panel in front lower side of appliance. After emptying water the door will normally get opened.

Regards.

Door locked error code dL/F


If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold the cancel button, and select drain/spin. If this still doesn't work and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the crow bar and a sledge hammer. (Though you may really feel like doing just that). You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Remove the lower kick panel.
- Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit.
- Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab.
- Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard.
- The door may be now opened.

What does trouble code f28 mean


f-28 was flashing on my washer for the longest time, first i had read that my heating element had gone out which was false, my washer still produced the steam and heat prior to error code f-28 then shutting down.The 2nd thing i read was F-28 meant the locking switch on the door was going bad which again was false, my washer would lock and unlock allowing me to feed more clothes. So i took it upon myself to remove the lower cover clean and was my RINSE filter which at that time I discovered the DRAIN tube was pushed against my wall not allowing enough water to flow out on my washers RINSE & SPIN cycle.

If you have this problem I would recommend following your service guide to trouble shoot the RINSE FILTER & DRAIN PIPE. The washer motor spins so fast that the washer itself need to drain the water out 10X's faster then a regular standard washer!

Hope this helps cause it did for me and saved my wife and I alot of money in repairs!

My duet sport washer stopped washing,panel is not working and I cannot open the dorrs.what to do?My clothes are inside the washer for 2 days now.


You have to remove the top cover of the washer by removing the screws on the back that run the top edge, then remove the top panel by sliding it to the rear. With the top off, reach down the front toward the locking mechanism. There is a round washer attached to a wire on the bottom of the locking mechanism that when you pull it down, it will unlock the door. Mine has done the same thing and flashes a code of f-28 which I have found to be an electrical failure. I have not been able to fix it as of yet but this should get your clothes out.

Error code dL F is popping up on washer. Door will not open, is locked but light will not come on on panel where is says "door locked." Can't wash, nor get the clothes out that need to be washed.


Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. This error occurs because the washer senses that the door cannot be locked (even if it is). The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl


The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate
