Lid does not lock. When it DOES, it beeps and shows "dl" on the screen


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.

Code dl-f machine will not start up, usually you hear the door lock and then water enters- but door does not lock which is why im thinking dl stands for door lock? i unpluged machine hoping it would reset...


Hello.

You are correct in that the fault code stands for door lock error. Here's the book answer:

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

Replace failed component.

Try pressing pause/cancel several times to reset it.

Best regards, --W/D--

DL F signal


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. replacing the door lock mech will fix this issue.

Washer won't start and we're getting the symbols ''F'' and ''dL''


Hi, this (F-dL), is a code that represents a failed door locking mechanism. you will have to check the wires leading from the control board to the door lock mech. test with a Ohm meter for resistance. if you pick up ant readings and, the door lock isn't functioning, it is time to replace this device.

In most cases, you will have to replace the door locking mech.

DL error code


DL is a 'Door Lock' error code.
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. The Central Control Unit (CCU) will try to activate the lock 6 times before displaying the error.

Potential Causes
• Door Lock Mechanism has failed
• Wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Central Control Unit (CCU) has failed.

There really isn't much you can do except replace the defective parts. The door locks have been troublesome and have replaced some. But there are cases where the CCU will develop an internal intermittent connection to the door lock causing it to work then not work. Check your owners manual for limited warranty on the CCU. The door lock only warranted for 1 yr.
