LTF2140ES0 washer just beeps three times, wont start


Frigidaire engineers are so smart they programmed it to beep 3 times for door lock problem, draining problem and other problems in the internal electronics and didn't bother to give the users specific info to read off the machine.

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock
it six times before displaying the error code.
Possible causes/procedure:

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'F' + 'dl' stands for Fault Door Lock. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. It will not reset as a service engineer's attention is required I suggest ;-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!

I've gotten the error code DL and then F, I tried sanding, unplugging but it still shows me the error. How can I fix it?


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

F dL code message


Hi, this is a failed door lock alert. the FdL code represents this malfunction in the door lock mechanism. the unit will not operate if the door lock cant engage the latch. replace the door lock mechanism asap. this will fix the issue.

Kenmore Elite HE4t stopping in mid cycle with F abd DL errors


See Phoebe 112 latest solution! This is a common problem with these washers. For a quick fix you can usually get it going again by unplugging it for 30 mins. so the computer will reset. You will hear a slight buzzing noise when it resets. If it keeps doing it, go to the comment for Feb. 14, 2009 and try that if you are handy. Unplug the machine before doing any of this as with any machine that is electric or you will probably get the shock of your life.
