HE4t 45981 Washer dl f and F11


The DL F error is saying that the door lock mechanism is faulty and will need to be replaced.

What does F DL means i opened the door to add something then t came up F DL and wont start again, the cycle had just started I pressed cancel all it does is beep and flash F DL


Hello and welcome to FixYa


FDL 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 issue is resolved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool duet washer dl light on but nothing happens when i press the cancel button or any button on the panel> i umplugged the machine thinking that it would reset but no change


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'dl' on Whirlpool washers normally indicates there is a problem with the Door Lock. Either the locking solenoid or the door lock sensor is malfunctioning and requires attention. It will not reset. Sorry- Service call!

At the end of the cycle when the machine goes to spin the machine stops saying DL. I looked it up in my manuel and that means door won't lock. But it was locked the whole cycle until the end. I emptied...


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.

My washer is not starting in the selected mode. It had a fault code of "dL" which I figured means there is a "door lock" problem. Is this correct and can it be fixed by me? Please help, Thank You


DL error stands for Door Lock.Follow the instructions to repair yourself.

Step 1

If your door hasn't yet locked and will not lock simply press cancel and try again.
If this will not work and the cycle still will not start up then skip to step three.

Step 2

If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold the cancel button and select drain/spin.If this still doesn't work and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the crow bar and a sledge hammer.You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Remove the lower kick panel.
- Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit.
- Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab.
- Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard.
- The door may be now opened.

Step 3

If your door fails to lock and your cycle will not start moderately but forcefully hit the back right hand corner of the washer with your fist.You may have to do this a couple of times,but you should hear the locking mechanism click so your washer is now locked.

Door wont open has code dl and then goes to f and back to dl


Step1:
If your door hasn't yet locked and will not lock simply press cancel and try again. If this will not work and the cycle still will not start up then skip to step three.

STEP2:
If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold the cancel button, and select drain/spin. If this still doesn't work and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the crow bar and a sledge hammer. (Though you may really feel like doing just that). You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Remove the lower kick panel.
- Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit.
- Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab.
- Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard.
- The door may be now opened.

STEP3:
If your door fails to lock and your cycle will not start moderately but forcefully hit the back right hand corner of the washer with your fist. You may have to do this a couple of times, but your should hear the locking mechanism click so your washer is now locked. After doing this for a couple of times my washer is now working properly for the last 6 months or so. Even if it is not a long term fix it I have used this method very effectively.

Washer displays message of dl when trying to start washer


Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced
