I've discovered you hit start and immediately bang on the side of the washer in the center. The front door will lock and it will start. Great way to take out your frustrations with it, anyway.... :) good luck

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.

Mani have an error coming on my epic maytag washer it flashes the letter F and then the letters DL please help


Hello the error code F with a DL is usually a clogged or kink in the drain line.
Unplug washer and remove drain hose and clean it out.

Check area where Line connects to washer closley for any debris and remove it.

Washer wont turn on. code is F dL. any thoughts?


Hi,

"dl" indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:
  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Thank you !!

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl


The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate
