"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This indicates that you have a failure of the door latch itself, the latch pin on the door, interconnecting wiring, or the Central Control Unit (CCU). A physcial inspection of the door latch should be done first to determine, if there is any physical damage to any of the latch components. Next, unplug the washer and remove the top panel of the washer by locating and loosening the three screws that hold the panel n place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back then lift off. Perform a physical inspection of all the electrical connections on the latch and trace them to the CCU and do the same. Often, simply diconnecting each connector plug one at a time and reseating them can clear this problem. If you determine that you need to replace the door latch, the following link explains how:

You can purchase replacements at any of the following websitesF dL Code - 2.gif:

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

All these sites offer great service, so shop them all for the best price.

If you need further assistance in troubleshooting this problem, there is a technical data sheet included with you washer. The tech sheet is located behind the bottom panel directly below the door. If not located behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The sheet lists all the fault codes, diagnostics procedures and troubleshooting2.gif tips. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access you can prop the front feet of the washer up ( a 2x4 works well for this).

If the door latch and interconnecting wiring check out good, the CCU will require replacement.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

Machine will not start dL code flashes


The door lock is not telling the control board the door is locked. You probably have a bad door switch or the wires to the door switch are corroded or broken.It could simply be a wire has come loose. Those washer do vibrate quite a bit.

Google your washer by model and google the code list. It could be something as simple as the drain is clogged. We had the same problem. It was a simple fix.

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

Dl/f


Ok the problem could lie in the door latch assembly itself, however i have had a few of these machines throw this code and the issue was the main computer. The only real way to test this issue is try replacing the latch first its much cheaper than the computer...if it still throws f dl than it will need a new CCU (main computer)
