    The same thing happened to me. Once I obtain the part myself is it easy to replace or do I need to get a service rep to come out and fix it?

What does du code mean


It means your lock latch on the lid is not functioning properly. We had the same issue, and it was because our lid would not lock, and you know you can't run a load without it locking itself. I pulled the part number off of our lid lock latch and replaced it. It works just fine now. Some of the older ones were built with a bad latch the tends to go out, so they changed the part a little and the new ones are supposed to last a very long time. Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis washer model


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Door won't lock on top loading kenmore elite oasis washing machine


1. Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall.
2. Move the washer forward about 12 inches.
3. Lift the lid and grasp the front of the washer top with both hands.
4. Place your knee on the front of the cabinet and pull the washer top forward and up.

The lid lock mechanism is secured to the bottom of the washer top with two screws. Remove those screws and the wiring will be exposed. Unplug the harness from the old mechanism and connect to the new one.

Secure the new mechanism to the washer top and let the top down.

Ok.. so I have already posted a question about my Kenmore elite oasis washer.. It was showing a dl error code, which I found out was a lidlock error... after looking at the lock closely, I see that they...


a replacement part should be sought and installed, you can bypass the switch, but the switch is there for a reason if you bypass it the spin cycle will not stop when opening the lid and injury to children or others can happen so this is not recommended

How to remove top of kenmore oasis washer to replace lid lock mechanism


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Kenmore Elite Oasis is making a loud banging noise during spin cycle. Also just noticed a small amount of water under the washer. All other cycles appear to be working fine.


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.
