My maytag bravos washer is flashing DL, what does this mean, its not spinning!

The "dL" error code appears when an item inside the washer prevents the lid from locking properly. Open the washer and readjust any items that may be hitting the lid. The error code should go away once you properly close the lid

Mani have an error coming on my epic maytag washer it flashes the letter F and then the letters DL please help

Hello the error code F with a DL is usually a clogged or kink in the drain line.
Unplug washer and remove drain hose and clean it out.

Check area where Line connects to washer closley for any debris and remove it.

Error code: F dL

HI There
I have some stuff for to read and hope this will help you and let me know how it goes.
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah

Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

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

Door Lock Error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
  • 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
most likely you will have to replace both door lock and ccu

Stopped in middle of cycle

Read other postings about the filter housing located underneath the machine. Clean it out first. We had this problem for a while before the machine finally refused to run anymore.

Kenmore HE3t DL code

My husband and I had this same problem, but after visiting this website and reading through some of th posted solutions, we were able to fix our problem. Our 3-year-old Kenmore Elite H3 would not start on any cycle. It kept flashing the error code "dL/F", which we found out means "door lock failure." Taking advice, we unplugged our machine, removed the top panel, and rechecked the wiring. It worked! We think the wiring may have become loosened over time due to the jiggling vibration of our machine. Hope this helps you!
