Most folk will just replace the door locks .
but a tech needs to check the secure connnection of the wiring to both the lock and the circuit board, and to look at the bottom of the circuit board to be certain of ** cracks on the relay solder joints as is the usual issue, sometimes its the relays themselves that have pitted contacts due to all this intermittent issue.

Broke handle off of siemens TOP WD1200 champion, the settings are all in chinese and my clothes are locked inside. help?


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
If you have used force you have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

Message code DL F???


Hi, this is a Door Lock Failure Error.

The service manual lists the following causes:

Door Lock Mechanism is broken or removed from door.

Door Switch Unit Lock Failure-Unplug washer and check door switch, wiring connections, and the connection to the CCU (Central Control Unit (You have to remove the lid of the washer for this).

To get at the switch, you have to remove the lower front panel. These are torx, I believe 3 screws. By turning yourself on your head, you can visually inspect the lock, and manually lock/unlock to check for bind (pulling/pushing a black plastic handle about two inches long with a teardrop shaped handle on the end.

I am getting the code dl and F on my whirlpool duet washer model # GHW9150WO


Hi,

"dl" indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:
Door Lock Mechanism broken.

Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
Thank you

I get an error of f 29 and my door won't unlock


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F29 is a door unlock error, this error occurs after the washer has made 6 attempts to unlock the door. Usually this occurs when the door lock mechanism is broken and/or the door switch/unit lock has failed. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the door switch, door lock mechanism and the wire harness between the central control unit & door switch, replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My kenmore elite smartwash flashes f and dl when i try and run the wash cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error fdl means a Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

It has occurred due to
1. Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
2. Door switch/lock unit failure. To unlock it follow the steps—
a. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
b. Check door switch/lock unit.
c. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Please revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Front loader door unlocks during cycles with door lock light on.


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
