Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Whirlpool duet washing machine door lock error

We are getting the DL error.
We were told it could be either the lock or the wire harness.
We ordered a new wire harness part#8181783
and a door lock part#8182634
We have directions for installing the door lock but need instructions on how to replace the wire harness.
Thank you for any/all help!

    Front door lock has been replaced 4 times since we purchased the Whirlpool Duet Set. I am really glad we took the 5 year warranty. I have had more problems with this washer in 3 years than I did with my previous washer in 10 years. I am tired of clothes being stuck in the washer or not being able to wash when needed. I am in the process right now of looking to purchase another washer and dryer that doesn't have so much "tech" involved

    same problem here.



    Door "flew open" during wash cycle. Second time, this has happened. Last time they replace the Latch part 8182634.

    Does anyone know how to open the door when the door lock is messed up. I have a load that needs to be taken out before it mildews. I have pressed pause, and end of cycle and unplugged it. Any ideas???

  • joyful1 Jun 14, 2008

    Trying to start load and get F22 error. Tryed to reset the load and now the door is locked shut. Unplugged the machine and can't get door unlocked!! Any suggestions?

  • Ca5an0v8 Jul 14, 2008

    28 days into use and I have the F22 (DL error) I don't know how to unlock it and will call Whirlpool tomorrow. Obviously for a machine that has this much quality issue, the company image will suffer tremendously.

My front loader has the door locked and I can't open it. I have already turned off the power and that didn't solve the problem. The manual says that if you try to open the door too soon after the cycle completes, then the door locks. How do I open it now? What do I do?

Door lock problem??? While shutting the door, lift up a bit on the door, holding it up....then shut it. It has worked twice for me now :)

Mine wouldn't lock. I took the post on the door that inserts into the locking mechanism of the machine, and after removing the post, I built it up on the back side with layers on masking tape. This basically lengthened the post by about 1/32 of an inch, which allowed the locking mechanism to actually close, allowing the machine to work. Saved a couple hyndred bucks and a lot of wasted time.

Try the lock first. The harness is a major undertaking.

I think Duets have a propensity to have door lock failures...Why removing the surge suppressor would make a difference I have no idea.

F dL symbol on Whirlpool duet HT


It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
