"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This is an indication of either a defective door latch (which, unless you purchased a defective one, isn't your problem), defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains how to troubleshoot the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4490349-fdl_error_code

I have included parts resources, if required, and the steps required to replace any defective parts. Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

In some cases, the error can occur when the washer is in the middle of the wash cycle. If the door remains locked and will not open, the following link explains how you can use the manual release to get the door to open:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_

You may want to try using a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain hose to try to pull as much of the water (if any) ot of the wash tub BEFORE opening the door.

NOTE: The error codes are NOT listed in the Owner's Manual. For a complete explanation of all the error codes, each one of these appliances comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to accurately troubleshoot this problem.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

Why Is WHIRLPOOL Duet & Duet HT washing machine showing F/dL error code on...


The F/dL is shown on the display due to Door Lock Error in the washing machine.
In this problem check the Door Lock in the washing machine. Either the door is getting blocked or not getting locked or the door latch assembly is got cracked.it needs to be checked and replaced.
This will help. Good Luck.

F dl I get the clicking and F with dl. The washer does not come on.


Hi


Error F dl indicates door latch failure and to resolve this issue you'll have to replace the door latch assembly. Also before doing this you can leave the washer unplugged for 30 minutes and then check the door latch assembly, if bad replace it. Please post a comment if need more help.


Thanks

Whirlpool Duet frontloader, washer won't start dL flashes and then F. I looked in the manual, found F but cannot find the description for dL. Any suggestions?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error "dlf" or F dl means a door latch failure. This means that you'll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it's unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Door wont latch shut


Is there a dl code? If not note the door striker position as the door closes. If you have to push it shut you need a door lock and if the striker is hitting below the latch too much a hinge will fix it. Finally look for a black pin above the striker for any damage as the latch will need to be replaced if broken too. Because with this and a door hanging low will not close the circuit and the ccu will believe the door is open also.

Whirlpool ht duet still getting F dl error


DL= Door Lock 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

if you have done all the abovet the CCU must be bad

Do you mean "F dl"? That's a problem with the door lock - it tries to lock the door but for some reason (usually mechanical) it can't. Try closing it a little firmer. Sometimes the mechanism needs an extra push to get it to throw from one mode to another. If that doesn't help replace the latch mechanism. if that doesn't work replace the CCU assembly.
