Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Guessing, we think DL means door lock and the F failure, but nothing we do will correct the problem. All the lights come on and after pushing start we get a little beeping sound and which stops when you push Pause. HELP PLEASE!
You are correct, "Fdl" is a door latch error code. This is an indication of either a defective door latch, defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the problem:
I have included parts resources, if required, and the steps required to replace any defective parts. Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
NOTE: For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.
To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.
Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.
