"F14" is an EEPROM error. This can indicate a failure of the CCU (central control unit). This is usually generated by a faulty chip on the CCU itself. Kenmore recommends unplugging the unit for at least two and trying it again as this could simply be a glitch. If this does not correct the problem, double check all your connectors.

Post back and let me know what you find.

PS The CCU is the main control board located in the center of the washer just above the wash tub in the back. You will need to remove the top of the washer to access it. The top comes off by removing three screws in the rear and sliding the top back, then lifting it off.

    Oops - I was supposed to say, unplug the unit for at least two minutes. I left a word out in the first paragraph.

Door will not lockwhen leaving home


I'm including a link to the installation instructions for your lock:

http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/40486-02

The instructions are a ".pdf" file, so if you cannot open it, you need to download and install Adobe Reader first. You can get the download here (it's free):

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

If you have not already done so, please replace the batteries. (See step 4.8) You should hear a series of quick beeps when batteries are installed correctly and making full contact. It is possible that weak batteries have caused the lock to lose its programming.
After the battery change, check the "handing" of your door. If the bolt does not extend when lock button is pressed, check the handing of your door (See Step 4.9)
Follow the programming instructions in Step 5. You will hear a 2 second beep when your codes are accepted. (See step 5.1-3).
If the unit does not beep - too much time has elapsed between steps 1 & 2. Repeat these steps faster.
Note: You have approximately 3 seconds between step 1 & 2 for your codes to be accepted.

Now, if you have done all of these things and the lock is still not performing correctly, it's time to contact Kwikset's Customer Service. For assistance call:
1-800-327-5625 USA
or visit www.kwikset.com

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

I'm getting error code FL when trying to start my washer. It will start to fill with water and then error. Please help! It seems like the door is locked.


Hi

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 happened because Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door. It may also happen due to Door switch/lock unit failure. To resolve the issue follow these steps---
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Hope this helps...Please post back if you need more information.

Door lock light


Hello,
I just had the same problem. The door lock wires have clips so unless you uncliped them that would not be the problem. It should be listed in the reset error code section, but I would suggest performing the system error check first before clearing the error.
Step 1 go to http://www.frigidare.com
Step 2 click on CUSTOMER SERVICE on top of page
Step 3 go to PRODUCT MANUALS and click on DOWNLOADS
Step 4 type in MODEL NUMBER and click on search
Step 5 your error code information is in the TECH DATA file there you can perform a full system check PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS POSTED
Step 6 save all PDF files to a new folder name it FRIGIDARE for easy availbility.
Thank you and good luck.

H4-00 is a fuser related service code. you need to get into the simulation programs and run sim 14 to reset the code. Make sure there is no paper jammed in the fuser. (The hot part on the right side inside the door)

Error code F dL, then F11


F/DL is indeed a door lock error. I had this on my machine, did a lot of research and getting some idea of how it works. The code is generated when the CCU can't lock the door. Possible causes are door latch mechanism, connecting wiring, or the CCU. I could hear clicking from the CCU on my machine which indicated to me the CCU was trying to lock the door. It tries 6 times before setting the F/DL code. I tested the latch and wiring from the CCU - OK. The clicking I heard had to be relay(s) so I figured the problem was relay contact failure. I removed the CCU board, determined which relays were suspect (there are two for lock & unlock). I changed them both and saved myself spending $300 CA on a new CCU. The relays cost just over $2 each. I found replacement relays @ Electro Sonic (www.e-sonic.com; minimum $25 order plus shipping $7.50). Relay made by OMRON part # G5LE-14-DC12 replacment for original G5LE-1-VD 12VDC. I'm not impressed to have to change a $300 CCU because of a $2 relay failure. For me this was worth the try as I have some experience working with circuit boards. The relays would be a quick repair for anyone with similar experience. Hope this helps someone.
