Hi. This is a Door lock mechanism failure code.

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

Possible Causes / Procedure

• Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
• Door switch/lock unit failure.

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit. Make sue it is mounted correctly, and not loose.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

If the door lock unit is mounted correctly, and the wires that link the device to the main control module, and connected well, this will lead to a failed lock mechanism. replace the door lock mechanism, in this case.

Kenmore smartwash error code dl and f? Won't start.


Hello and welcome to FixYa


DL f is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the problem is solved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
