Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'DL' stands for Door Lock error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'F' for fault, 'dL' for door lock and you don't hear it operating. It's pretty clear there is a problem either with the lock operating solenoid (highly likely 'cos you don't hear it operate) or the door lock sensor (not so likely).
Either you need to replace it or it needs replacing by a service engineer. Sorry, no other option ;-0(

Good luck,

Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis washer model


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.

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

Kenmore elite HE4 has fault code of dl and F?


F-DL code is for your washer and if the main control has not been replaced then that is what I would replace most of the time F-DL is also seen with a F-11 code later in the cycle, i am sure you hear the washer try to lock the door a few times and pop up F-DL. the main control part # is based off of the model#

My washer has an F dl problem?


Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. The clicking sound that you hear is most likely the door lock. This error occurs because the door cannot be locked. The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My Kenmore Elite front loader HE3 washer will not start.


The door lock is not telling the control the door is locked. Faulty door switch or failed control or loose wire.Try pushing in on the door while it tries to start. Advanced trouble shooting may be required.
