1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

How can I unlock the door on whirlpool frontload duet washer


First thing is to unplug it and see if it resets. If not then you need to drain it by hand. You do this by removing the panel under the door and looking for a big pipe plug. Be advised that you will get LOTS OF WATER when you take the plug out.

I have a Kenmore Elite washer. I keep getting a F 14 code and a DL F code. What do I Do?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I understand that 'F14' for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines decodes as 'EEPROM failure' (control unit) and 'DL' is Door Lock- a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor.
Sorry but I fear both F14 and DL require a service engineer's attention ;-0(
Good luck,

On my Kenmore frontload washing machine, we are getting a DL error?


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.

Our wash machine will not spin after draining the water.


if this is really the old 9150 version then f21 is a ccu communication error with user interface. likely ccu is bad. 5d is not a error code.
bearings will make noise when out. unplug wait 1 min the reconnect power. If this doesnt work open top cover and check connections on ccu in rear. (unplug and replug). then buy new control. if your machine is newer duet (wfwxxxx) then f21 is different. (pressure sw) tech sheet on bottom front cover.

F-11 and DL-F Codes...


We had the same problem for 2 or 3 years. I was not able to find an answer to your question either (let me diagnose it, so I can fix it once and for all). I ended up taking out the control unit in the top front of the machine to have it "rebuilt". It's not a small task, as there are 10 or 12 sets of wire connecting to the unit. I sent the unit away to a company in either North or South Carolina. They rebuilt it for about $90. The machine has been working like a swiss watch since. We went through this process in 2011.
Whirlpool or their supplier made a faulty component, and this company has made a business improving it.
