What is code FDL


FDL code is a door lock code on these washers, but be advised, the older models had an issue with the main control boards loosing connection at the soldered joints for the door switch. They would loose solder, and the board would think the fault was the door lock and it was actually the board.

Flash FDL code


Fdl error code means a "door lock error code".
This error shows up because the door cannot be locked. The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. In order to solve it, your door lock switch needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Pushed start button to begin cycle. washer started beeping and display was flashing F and the DL repeatedly. unplugged washer for a long time, opend and closed door. also checked water pump screen in the...


If the door fails to lock after six (6) attempts "Fdl" will display. The "Fdl" error code indicates the door failed to lock or the control does not detect the door being locked. The likely failure is the door lock mechanism. There is always a chance there could be a loose wire connection between the door lock mechanism and the Central Control Unit (CCU) causing the error too.

When pushing start, washer beeps 3 times but won't start


Hi,

Is the machine showing a "code" like FdL or F11 in the window where the numbers count down? The machine won't start because it thinks there's a problem. FdL and F11 are often times the codes most displayed when the machine beeps and won't start. FdL means a door lock problem and F11 means a motor or motor control board problem. If it's flashing either one of those codes the problem is most often the CCU circuit board in the machine (inside, top, back, plastic case) The CCU circuit board has what's called cold solder joints causing bad communication between the CCU and the door lock and/or the motor or motor control board. The cure for this is to remove the case with the circuit board then remove the circuit board and resolder the points on the circuit board where the spade connectors and relays (5 of them) connect to the circuit board. If you're good with soldering techniques the job is easy. If not, take the board in the case to a good appliance repair shop (along with this response) and they should be able to help you out. Good luck.

Door will not lock and code on panel reads"F" then


f the door fails to lock after six (6) attempts "Fdl" will display. The "Fdl" error code indicates the door failed to lock or the control does not detect the door being locked.

I added the instructions in the image below on how to remove and replace the door lock mechanism. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing and replacing the door lock assembly.

I have a code fdl coming up. What does that mean?


Hi,

FdL means that the main circuit board (CCU) is not communicating with the door lock and the door needs to be locked b/4 the washer will work. The door lock is rarely the problem. Most often its cold solder joints on the CCU circuit board causing the bad communication. Many times a F11 code comes along with the FdL code. To repair this problem the CCU circuit board needs to be removed and the solder points where the spade connectors and the relays are connected to the circuit board need to be soldered over again. This all stems from poor quality control when the circuit boards had the components soldered to them. The process was able to adhere the smaller connections but not the larger ones compleatly. If your not to handy with a soldering gun you could take this response and show it to a good appliance repair outlet and they should be able to repair your circuit board. Good Luck.

Watching TV on my SONY FDL-310!


Any of the digital to analog converters should work. Connect the converter RF OUT to a COAX cable, connect the wire in the center of the COAX cable to the Sony antenna with an alligator clip type patch cord. Tune the sony to the proper channel (3 or 4). Voila!
