SOURCE: od code

od code is supposed to mean that lid has not been opened for the last 3 completed cycles. Also, apparently you tried the service mode and found the door lock to be working. So, unless the problem is with the electronic board itself the only other thing that could be happening is a faulty sensing switch at the door lid or a bad connection to it. I would try shorting the leads from the switch and see if the problem goes away. Then you might just need a new switch.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet HT GHW9400PL0

Thanks to Coldcut and several others, I have followed the trail of problems and solutions and successfully fixed the annoying (to say the least) FDL and F11 error codes issue on my Whirlpool GHW9400PL0 purchased in 2005, broken in 2008. I too was extremely frustrated with a load of wash taking 1 or 2 days to complete. Some of the fixes (unplugging the washer for an hour, simultaneously pressing start and cancel) worked temporarily, but eventually I had to call for service. Before that, I fearlessly took the door lock unit apart (not recommended) and reinstalled it. It did not work. I ordered a new door lock. It did not fix the issue. Coldcut already knew that would not work but I tried it anyway. Not a big ticket item and I was afraid to muck with the CUU circuit board.

The whirlpool service center sent a repair guy out within the week, but he failed to show on the scheduled day. Calls to the service center confirmed that he was on his way. An hour late, the service center confirmed I was next on his schedule. Two hours later, I asked to speak to a manager who listened to my compaint and informed me in no uncertain terms that they did not care about customer satisfaction and would not be interested in monitoring their repair partners. I am so glad I took a half day off work without pay to wait for someone who did not value my time. I told the service center I would never buy another Whirlpool appliance and they politely told me that "it was my decision". Indeed.

The repair guy showed up the next day (another no pay day), asked me what the error code was, checked his computer, and informed me I needed a new CCU at twice the price of major online parts suppliers. I sent him away after paying the $80 service fee, and ordered a new CCU online.

With the new CCU on the way and nothing to lose, I took the CCU out of the machine. gaga24008 had wisely advised to be careful prying the board out of the case (thank you) and following Coldcut's instructions I resoldered the relay legs with my circa 1968 Wen soldering gun. Put everything back together (I had previously removed and replaced every connector in the entire machine) and waited for the 6 whimpy relay clicks to prove it didn't work-- but it did work! I've completed 15 or so loads of wash since, and no problems. I'm hanging on to my expensive replacement CCU just in case. I'm wary of the postings which refer to immediate problems after installing a new CCU. My next step will be to hang the dang thing by a bungy cord. Thanks to the many people who have posted solutions to this aggravating issue. I'll be visiting FixYa for any future issues with my tools and appliances.

Hit the power button until there is NO display . Unplug and wait a minimum of 30 seconds , plug back in and within 30 seconds hit SIGNAL button then DELAY START button then SIGNAL button again then DELAY START button again. door should lock and display t01 It is now in test mode . There are 14 different test it can run through in this mode , but all we are trying to do is check for error codes now and maybe get you back to normal, So turn the knob one click clockwise and hit the START/PAUSE button and see if any error codes come up. To exit the diagnostic mode - hit signal button then delay start button then signal button then delay start button and you are out of service test mode and back to normal. Post any error codes.

My washing machine says control locked


Hello there
Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST

The washer must be empty and the control must be in the OFF

state before pressing the touch-pad sequence to start the test.

Starting the Test Mode

? Close the door.

? Push CONTROL/ON (if present on this model).

? Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.

? Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SPEED touch-pad.

? Push PREWASH OPTION four times within five seconds. (If

PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA

RINSE four times within five seconds.) C:00 will light up on the

display.

If the Starting procedure fails, push the PAUSE/CANCEL touch-pad,

then repeat the starting procedure.

Test Program Control

In order to advance to the next step of the test procedure, push

PREWASH OPTION touch-pad two times. If PREWASH OPTION is not

present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE two times.

What does the error code fdl for my kitchenaid superba front load washer mean? The machine will not start when I push the start button.


F DL
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

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

Ohm out the door lock solenoid and the door lock switches. This is most conveniently done at the central control board--use the wiring diagram/tech sheet to locate the proper pins to test from. Unplug the washer before starting work.
hope this helps....

Door lock wont engage


YOU MAY HAVE BROKEN THE BUTTON, A SMALL PIN LIKE PUSH BUTTON THAT PUSHES IN TO LET THE DOOR LOCK KNOW THE DOOR IS SHUT. YOU CAN USUALLY FIND A SMALL DIAMETER OBJECT LIKE WHAT IS IN A RETRACTABLE BALL POINT PEN TO SLIP INTO THE HOLE WHERE THE BROKEN PIN IS AS A TEMPORARY REPLACEMENT AND TO CONFIRM THIS IS ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM. IF IT IS, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY FOR PERMANENT REPAIR. DON'T SLAM THE DOOR SHUT BECAUSE THESE PARTS ARE MADE OF PLASTIC AND BREAK EASILY!

Hi, I have a duet washer that won't turn on. The "Control On" button is blinking and when I press the "Hold to Start" button, nothing happens. And ideas?


Open and close the door.
The door has to be opened between wash cycles.
Check the door switch/lock unit
using the diagnostics listed below.
If door is locked, Drain the unit.
Check wire harness for connections.
Check the touchpad/LED assembly.
Starting the test mode:
Close the door
Press Control On button
Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle
Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SELECT button,as needed,
Push Prewash Option button 4 times within 5 secs.
C:00 will show in the display.
To advance to the next step
Push Prewash Option button 2 times.
Here are the codes:
C:00 check door lock system actuator
C:01 Check cold water inlet valve flowmeter
C:02 check dispenser motor
C:03 check hot water dispenser
C:04 check basket rotation MCU,Motor
C:05 check heater sensor
C:06 check Drain pump
