Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer will not start because of "dl" (door latch) notice. The latch on both the door and the washer have been replaced, yet it still will not start without several (25) re-starts. We were told it might be the "microcomputer machine control". Is there a way to "re-set" this without replacement?

Maytag Brovo 300 seies washer display says dl and will not wash


The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

F dl I get the clicking and F with dl. The washer does not come on.


Hi


Error F dl indicates door latch failure and to resolve this issue you'll have to replace the door latch assembly. Also before doing this you can leave the washer unplugged for 30 minutes and then check the door latch assembly, if bad replace it. Please post a comment if need more help.

Whirlpool Duet frontloader, washer won't start dL flashes and then F. I looked in the manual, found F but cannot find the description for dL. Any suggestions?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error "dlf" or F dl means a door latch failure. This means that you'll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it's unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove 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 lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Washer code says dl? and wont start


"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This is an indication of either a defective door latch, defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4490349-fdl_error_code

I have included parts resources, if required, and the steps required to replace any defective parts.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer displays message of dl when trying to start washer


Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced

Washer will not start


"Fdl" is definitely a door latch error. This will cause the washer not to start. You will need to replace the latch to keep from getting errors and intermittent problems. It will only get worse until it fails altogether. To replace, just follow these steps: 1. Unplug the washer. 2. Feel around the rubber door boot along the front edge. At the bottom, behind the rubber you will find a tension spring. Pull the tension spring out and remove the wire retaining hoop. 3. Remove the door boot from around the door opening and push inside the washer so you can access the door latch behind the front panel. 4. Remove the three screws on the front of the washer that hold the latch in place. 5. Carefully remove the wire connecting plugs to the door latch and remove latch assembly from plastic retainer holding it in place. 6. Replace the door latch in the reverse order of the steps given. 7. Reinstall rubber door boot around the door opening making sure you seat the rubber all the way around the groove. 8. Now comes the hard part - putting the retaining spring back in place. Position the tension spring at the six o'clock position and start inserting the hoop from the top first, working your way around to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. The assistance of another person would be great right about now. Hold the hoop in place at the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, making sure you keep enough tension on the hoop to keep it seated in the groove. 9. Stretch the tension spring in order to snap the remainder of the hoop back into place. I know this may seem like a lot, but it is a fairly simple repair. I hope this helps you.

Washer displays DL error


The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.
