Electrolux frontloader washer detergent drawer won't stay shut

Hello royal37 - Hi - The dispenser drawer could either be cracked or have a broken latch due to interference between the drawer front and top panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately and might possibly need to order a service kit (PN: 137146000/part number may be different depending on your model number).

My frontload washer will not stay on

Hi - Either you have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. Contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

My washer sounds like it's dying, but the dryer is fine. Can this be unstacked so all I have to do is buy a new washer?


Welcome to FixYa.

To answer your question, as long as it is indeed a frontload washer with the dryer on top, yes they can be replaced individually.

The model number provided is only partial, therefore I can`t verify the unit is frontload or an Kenmore integrated "laundry center" built by frigidaire.

You can reply with a model number, but as I alluded to if it is frontload, no problem.

Good luck going forward. Thank`s for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Possible electrical problem

The DL code is door lock. The manufacture explanation of the code is here then my comments follow.

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.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/
lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Phil's comments------>

It it almost always a failure of the door latch mechanism. The part number is 8182634 and cost around $45.00

Here is a parts break down to show you where the component is located it is part #7 in this drawing. Sorry about all the trouble you are having, it is usually a good machine and I have one at home myself.

The "Fdl" code is a Door Latch Lock error. Inspect the door latch for obstructions that may be preventing it from locking and doublecheck the wire harness to ensure all the connectors are intact. If the latch is defective, use the following link for advice on how to replace it:

Another method of replacing the latch is to remove the top panel and work form the top down behind the front panel. Due to limited space, this may not be desireable to some.

Replacement latches can be purchased on line at,, or Use your model number for your search criteria. These sites have great service and offer competitive pricing. Check out all three for the best savings.

I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
