HI. That code is in reference to the door locking mechanism. It is experiencing difficulties at this time. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

The necessary actions are to Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU). This can be achieved by removing the top and front panel. The door assembly must be removed as well. Once you have exposed the door locking mechanism and its respective connections to the CCU, kindly, inspect each connections for a loose fit. The CCU will be located on the top of the unit, just to the rear or side of the interface panel. Check the linking connections that run to the door locking mechanism for a loose fit, as well. If all connections check out ok,simply, replace the door locking mechanism(switch assembly). This will correct the issue.

I have included a service manual for this unit. This duet service manual will guide you through the necessary disassembling process, as well as, the proper testing procedures for the door locking mechanism and CCU. The common fault here in your case will be a damaged door locking switch assembly, and replacing it will solve the problem. Click here to access your service manual.

Component accessing procedures will begin on page 4-1. The door switch assembly removal procedure will start on page 4-3. it is part of the door removal section. Follow it carefully to extract the assembly. Componet checks start on page 5-2. You can test the CCU door lock solenoids for proper ohms by referring to the ohm chart on page5-3. The CCU pin connector location is labeled on the top of page 5-1 under door lock solenoids. Due to the fact that there is a very small possibility that the CCU may be damaged, you can test the pins to verify that the CCU is indeed functioning with a good set of door lock/unlock solenoids. This will, essentially, isolate the door lock switch assembly as the lone culprit.


  • Be sure to unplug the unit before attempting this repair and use caution.

This is a long drain code. probably just something in pump. takeoff kick plate. get a wet vac and take clean out trap loose. drain water look in the reservoir. most of the time there is a lot of change in the rubber boot that connects the the back side of electic pump.

SOURCE: Washer displays message of dl when trying to start washer

Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced


Please remember to leave a solved rating before signing out.
Thank You Huum

Washer sometimes will not work and a code comes on f dl what does this mean?


The DL code indicates a problem with the door lock. These washers need to lock the door before they fill with water. Then the door will unlock at the end of the cycle. The problem can be with the lock, the sensor that detects the lock status or the main control unit not receiving the lock message. Sometimes the wiring is the problem with the unit.

When the DL code comes on, can you pull open the door as easily as when you open the washer before starting the machine? If you can, then check if the wiring is sending the appropriate current to the lock. If the power is there, replace the lock. If the door has actually locked, then the problem is with another part of the system. Most washers will have a sheet with the wiring diagram and expected readings inside the machine near then main control board. This is accessed from the back of the machine above the wash tub.

I hope this helps.

Maytag Brovo 300 seies washer display says dl and will not wash


The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

What does f dl mean


Hello, F DL means
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

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

Ohm out the door lock solenoid and the door lock switches. This is most conveniently done at the central control board--use the wiring diagram/tech sheet to locate the proper pins to test from. Unplug the washer before starting work.

Thanks
