    We have had the same problem. A tech came out to look at it and wanted way to much to fix it, but after he left it worked fine for a few months. Now it is back to getting stuck on every load.

    getting DL error code then F error code when starting washer

  • Anonymous Dec 31, 2008

    When I try to start a job on my Whirlpool Duet I get F dL. The solenoid tries to cause the door to lock a few times (I hear the clicks as the service manual said I should hear) before I get the error. Unplugging and starting over worked a few times but the error keeps coming back. Apparently lots of people have the problem. Is there an easy fix?

  • aubinhaestad Jan 04, 2009

    f-dl & f-11 error codes on Kenmore front load washer. Clothes were actually stuck in the washer. lock would not disengage. Tried many things. Ultimately unplugging & restarting a cycle unlocked it for a mere second & i managed to get them out. But problem still persists & it's unusable. Any advice would help. Also we are in the Bahamas & the voltage is slightly higher & fluctuates more than in the states. Can this be the problem? Any advice would be helpful.

    err loc code coming up washer won't start

  • Anonymous Jan 24, 2009

    called sears and they said it needed a new board. They know this is a problem and won't recall it

  • smileman Jan 24, 2009

    We went through this about a year ago. We have a HE3T. After the warranty ran out with no problems, we ran into the DL code. The board was replaced at the cost of over 300 dollars. The repair person offered us an extended warranty for 129 dollars...for one year. The first time I researched this issue I literally found hundreds of people with similar problems. It is clear this is a design flaw in the washer. Sears will not do anything to mitigate the problem. Unfortuately, we are dealing with this problem again. My thought is: if you can afford it, scrap your washer and buy something else. But get an extended warranty!

  • parker9341 Feb 20, 2009

    "F" code follwed by "dl" code!!! I just had a repair man here one week ago about an F11 code, he told us to clean out the drain, and all should be fine! So, after reading others comments, sounds like I need a new machine all together????

  • angie0513 Feb 28, 2009

    My Kenmore Elite 45962 washer just started this FdL code today. The door lock just clicks and the wash cycle won't start. Is there a way to fix this without calling for service?

  • Anonymous Mar 12, 2009

    My KenmoreElite is showing fdl which is door lock. The door was locked it released it and now it won't shut and just beeps.

  • kenterpoos Apr 11, 2009

    Flashing DL then f flashes. I was just adding clothes to the load. It will not re start?? Now I have a washer with water in it. Suppose to be under warranty for 7 years.

  • DooHickey May 10, 2009

    This is definitly a manufacturing defect. My door lock mechanism failed at 3 months. I isolated the problem to the electromagnetic switch within the lock assembly. I ordered and installed a replacement lock assembly, which solved the problem for about six months - until this morning. Now I have the DL and F error codes again.



    Whirlpool needs to recall these switches and replace them with something that works.

F22 code ?? duet locks but will not run


Hi,


"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed.
In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

Thank you !!

F dL symbol on Whirlpool duet HT


It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
