WE have Kenmore elite He3t Model Nol. 42926 203. We get an error code dL F. How do we correct this?


It is a door lock failure and it flashes after the door locking routine fails to lock the door after 6 attempts. Replace the door lock/latch assembly (part number 8182634) to solve the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel. Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harnesses.

The door is not locked after 6 trials then the Central Control Unit (CCU) will enters a failure mode and the digital display flashes FdL. This is a door lock failure and the only viable solution is the replacement of the door lock and switch assembly.

Whirlpool ghw9100 Door lock solenoid 60 ohm and 126 ohm? Duet job aid says 60 ohms on contact point 3 to 2 and 3 to 1 that is not possible because the two windings double the resistance the way its made. ...


The terminal numbering of the door lock and unlock solenoids solenoid looks messed up and your resistance reading is correct and the solenoids are good as long as you get 60 ohms both on 3-2 and 2-1 and 120 ohms on 3-1.

You stated, as per live chat discussion, that the door never locks to start a cycle. The door locking routine starts only if the door switch contact is closed (refer to page 6-2 of Job Aid L-68). This could mean the door switch contact never closes for the door locking routine to be initiated and a wash cycle can start or the CCU is not detecting it closed.

Check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness (door switch, door lock main switches, and solenoids wire harnesses) including the connectors. Replace the wire harness if a discontinuity or any other issue that might jeopardize its function is found. Proceed with the troubleshooting if no issue is found with the harness or if the problem is not resolved with the replacement of the harness.

Reinstall the door lock and switch assembly, reconnect the wires, put the door gasket back over the outer lip of the door opening, and close the door. Reconnect the door lock main switches and the door lock/unlock solenoids harness except the door switch harness. Jump a wire between the door switches terminal connections (adjacent terminals) on the central control unit (CCU) then reconnect power and start the machine.

The door locking routine should start and eventually lock the door and start the cycle if the issue is with the door switch not closing. Replace the door lock and switch assembly if that is the case. The problem is in the CCU not detecting the door switch closing and needs to be replaced if door locking routine still fails to start, lock the door, and start the cycle.

If the door locking routine starts and the door lock seems engaging but fault code "FdL" flashes and the door is locked, unplug the machine then check the continuity of the door lock main switches at the wire harness connector in the CCU (refer to page 5-3 of Job Aid L-68). The problem is also with the door lock and switch assembly if there's no continuity in any of the door lock main switches. Otherwise, the problem is in the CCU not detecting door lock main switches closing and needs to be replaced if there's continuity in the switches.

With the fault "FdU" flashing when the door lock main switches bypassed, the CCU is certainly detecting the switches closed. This eliminates the possibility of the CCU not detecting the door lock main switches closing. It leaves only the possibility that the door switch is not closing or the CCU is not detecting it closing.

Machine flashes F then dl. What can we do?


There's a fault detected with the door lock and switch assembly. The door lock is not working or the door lock switch is not activated. This indicates that the door lock and switch assembly is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced to address the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected and pull the wire out of the groove of the door gasket.

My door lock has locked with the door open , how do i get it to unlock ?


There is a manual unlocking tab located at the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly. Disconnect power to the washer before accessing it.

Remove the three screws attaching the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall for an easy access of the screws.

Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door lock and switch assembly on the right side.

Locate the tear-drop shaped tab then gently pull it down until a click is heard, and then open the door.

The door lock and switch assembly may need to be replaced if the problem persists. Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening.

How does front panel come off (safely) to swap out door switch on kenmore washing machine 41744152400


The front panel does not need to be removed when replacing the door switch. What needs to be removed is the door gasket. Open the washer door. Get a pair of needle nose pliers then look for the retaining hoop securing the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Stretch the hoop retaining spring at the bottom of the lip of the door opening then carefully pull the hoop out. Make sure not to tear the door gasket or else water will leak through it.

Remove the two screws securing the door switch to the front panel. Peel off the door gasket near the door switch then pull the door switch off the front panel and out of the washer.

Disconnect the wires from the door switch terminals then connect it to the new door switch. Secure the new door switch back to the front panel then put the door gasket back over the lip of the door opening. Properly secure the door gasket to the lip of the door opening with the retaining hoop.
