F/DL is the fault code for door lock error. The F is not a separate fault code for communications error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.


Potential Causes

• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and
Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Ohm out the door lock solenoid and the door lock switches. This is most conveniently done at the central control board--use the wiring diagram/tech sheet to located the proper pins to test from. Unplug the washer before starting work.

Kenmore smartwash error code dl and f? Won't start.


Hello and welcome to FixYa


DL f 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 problem is solved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Elite Smartwash - error code F dL flashes and washer doesn't start


Hi,


The reason for "F dl" flash is that if your machine doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely if it's frozen or stiff replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


Thank you !!

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

Try shutting off the machine. Switch off Usually the door opens in 2 minutes or so. Do not force open the door. There may be instructions in your book to open the door manually. It could mean unscrewing somewhere.
