The Central Control Unit (CCU) is the main computer for the washer. There is a small relay on the board that controls the door latch mechanism. The intermittent operation when you tap on the board indicates, you either have a bad relay, or bad interconnecting wiring. If you've already replaced the latch, then the CCU is the next logical choice to replace. Before you order a replacement, however, unplug the washer and locate and remove each connector plug (one at a time) that runs between the CCU and the door latch and reseat them. This is to ensure you do not have any loose or corroded contacts. You can also perform end to end continuity checks on the each connector to determine whether or not you have a wiring issue. If these preliminary checks fail to solve your problem, you will need to replace the CCU. These control boards are not serviceable.

If a replacement CCU is required, you can purchase on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

You can use whatever part source you like, but I have found these sources to be reliable and provide great service. In addition, you can usually save by ordering the part vice paying a retailer.

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

I'm getting flashing error code on washer. It's flashing " DE" Thanks! Sam Singleton


If you've already tried to unplug the machine and that didn't correct the issue, the door latch assembly will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. The latch assembly is just not reading that the dor is shut properly even though it is.

It doesn't matter if it appears to work or not--it's not giving the correct signal to the control board after it locks to tell the control board that the door is latched and shut and ready to start the wash cycle. This is why you need to replace the latch assembly.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Dl F signal on kenmore elite front loading washer


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” 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.



Thanks

Fdl code, but latch is fine. could it be computer


"Fdl" is a Door Latch Failure error code. This is an indication that either the door latch mechanism has failed, the Central Control Unit (CCU) has failed, or you have a problem with the interconnecting wiring between the two. The door latch may appear to be good, but could still have problems with the electronic relay inside.

I recommend you refer to the tech sheet in order to determine which component may be causing the error code. Troubleshooting some of these components requires checking specific test points or wiring connections, which is much easier to look up rather than have me try to explain it for you.

Each one of these washers come with a technicial data sheet inside the unit. To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The panel comes off by locating and removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the washer. You may have to prop the front feet of the washer up for better access to the panel screws (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The tech sheet will be located either directly behind the panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included in the tech sheet are all the error code definitions, troubleshooting data, wiring diagrams and diagnostics procedures.

If you determine the door latch IS defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575840-replacing_a_door_latch

NOTE: A simple test that you can try to see if the latch has failed, or if the problem is with the Central Control Unit (CCU) is to lightly tap on the control board with a screwdriver at the point where the door latch connectors. There's a relay on the board that controls the locking and unlocking of the door latch. Sometimes the relay sticks, causing the error code to appear. Sometimes this can free up a stuck relay.

To access the CCU, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and 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, then lift off.

3. The CCU is located top center behind the wash tub. Locate the connector plug(s) that run to the door latch. Unplug each connector one at a time and reseat them. Sometimes this can restore a connection where continuity is lost due to corrosion or oxidation.

4. Attempt to start a wash cycle and see if it works. If not, as the washer tries to lock the door latch, tap the board where the door latch connection(s) are.

NOTE: The washer usually makes 4 attempts to lock the door, before it errors out.

If none of these preliminary measures work, you may need to replace the CCU. If you can get the CCU to work, but still have to tap on it each time, you should still replace it. This may get you by in the interim while awaiting parts (if you can get it to work this way).

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the part(s) you need. The Sears website will sometimes offer a refurbished CCU for much less.

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

Kenmore eliye f/dl code erroe ,changed mechanism and still doing it


If you've already replaced the door latch and you're still experiencing the "Fdl" code, the problem is the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer for the washer. There's a relay on the board that controls the locking and unlocking of the door latch. Sometimes the relay sticks, causing the error code to appear. You can try tapping on the board lightly with the **** end of a screwdriver at the point where the door latch connectors are plugged into the board to see if it frees up the relay. if not, you're going to have to replace the CCU. To access the CCU, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and 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, then lift off.

How do you remove the top of a MAH5500B Front Load Washer


you need to remove the door hinges and the screws opposite the hinges. that will allow you to remove the front panel and the you will see the latch and the top hold down screws. once you have the top up, then you will also need to remove 2 screws that hold the latch to the upper frame. it is hard to pivot the latch out from the frame but it will come out and then you can replace the assembly.
by the way.. why are you wanting to replace the latch?? any failure codes? you might also have to replace the control board as it will fail when the door latch shorts out.
if you look at the control board you might see some of the resistors that have burnt out/ shorted out. sorry but it happens alot.
if it is less then 5 years old, then you might get it fixed under warranty for free part.

Washer not spinning


You're problem is probably the door latch assembly. This is a common problem on Frigidaire front load washers. You can find the part at your local appliance parts suppliers. If the door latch assembly is faulty, the washer will run through all of its normal cycles, but will not spin. Hope this fixes the problem for you.
