SOURCE: Whirlpool Duett Front load washer, DFL code door won't unlock?

Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the door lock mechanism has failed or the central control unit has failed. Replace the door lock mech. first. This should fix the problem. (before replacing anything make sure there is no obstruction around the switch or in the switch.) After the machine has been unplugged it may fix itself. if not replace door lock mech.

SOURCE: error code 13 on my 5oo plus series washer, it

On the small round disk at the bottom right...insert a small round pointed object into the hole and push gently, while do this rotate the disk clockwise. This will allow you to remove the disk. Look inside and there will be a slender plastic rod next to the drain clean out. Pull down gently to manually unlock the washer door. Unfortunately that will unlock the door but probably not fix what caused the issue in the first place.

Code f 29


F29 is a door unlock error, this error occurs after the washer has made 6 attempts to unlock the door. Usually this occurs when the door lock mechanism is broken and/or the door switch/unit lock has failed. To resolve this issue you'll need to check the door switch, door lock mechanism and the wire harness between the central control unit & door switch, replace the part that has gone bad.

Showing F29 ??


F29 is a Door Latch Unlock error. This occurs after the door attempts to lock 6 times. With no successful lock achieved, the error code will be generated. Check the following:

  1. First, UNPLUG the washer in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that required in order to clear momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the door switch/latch for foreign objects that may have become lodged in the mechanism and may be preventing it from operating.
  3. Check the wiring harness from the CCU to the door latch. The harness can be accessed by removing the washer top panel. Remove the panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then off.

Cannot unlock door, machine will not allow me run drain and spin


Unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door still remains locked after a CCU reset, you can still open the door by using the manual release. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

NOTE: The "Fdl" and Fdu" fault codes are for older models of your washer, but the principle of accessing and releasing the door latch is still the same.

If your error code still persists, you may have to replace the door latch. Just follow the guidance in the link below:

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Code F29 is not in the booklet and I can't open the door, is there a way I can fix this because sears can't come out till Thursday, I have so much laundry to do


code f29 in my book is Door Unlock Error Possible causes/procedure are as follows: 1 door lock mechanism is broken 2. door switch/lock unit failure. a. check door switch/lock unit for foreign objects. b. unplug washer or disconnect power. c. check wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and central control unit (ccu) d. check door switch contacts E the resistance of both door coils between pin 1 and 3 should be approx. 320 ohms... the door can be unlocked manually... to do this you 1. unplug washer. 2 remove the lower kick panel (i think 2 screws on bottom hold it on) 3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. 4. located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a tear-drop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4 of an inch or until a click is heard. 6 you should now be able to open the door.
