Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To unlock the controls you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My Kenmore HE-4t washer will not begin the cycle, after I choose it, it clicks and then flashes "F", then "dL"


F DL is a Door Lock Error it mean that the door cannot be locked this could be caused by a locking mechanism malfunction, a wiring problem or a problem with the CCU(central control unit)

Try checking what you can see of the lock mechanism visually and make sure nothing is obstructing or jamming it. Outside of that I would recommend calling a service tech. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I couldn't get the washer to start (HE 4T). It


DL stands for Door Lock failure, if your door isnt closing all the way, check to make sure your hinges are lining up and that one of the arms has not broken off on the door, there should be 2 arms going into the door lock. whats common on these is that the door latch has trouble unlocking so it is forced open and now the door latch mechinism is stuck in the locked position and cant re-open. problems with this lock opening and closing- 9 times out of ten, come from a main computer failure to send power to the door lock. this can be temporairily fixed by re-seating the door latch wire harness in the main computer, but its usually recommended to buy a new computer since this problem has been address on the new series of computer. there is no recall on this board at the moment. estimated cost $250-$400

Kenmore elite front loader he 4t. how do unlock the control panel it is loack mode! red light is on & I can not do anything to get it unlocked!


The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

My Kenmore Elite HE 4t has a bulb illuminated on the front panel. The bulb is the "Control Locked" bulb and the washer does not work! Please help. I have tried unplugging it for awhile.


The reset or cancel button does not control the locking feature. Unplugging the appliance also will not reset it. The following link explains how to correct a control panel lock issue on a Kenmore Elite:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

The control panel lock is actually a designed safety feature that allows you to lock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently set by leaning against the control panel buttons, or following a power outage.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore elite he 4t. Controls are locked! Tried unppluging still the "controls locked". ARGHH! What to do???


The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem on a Kenmore Elite:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

Keep in mind, control panel features can differ between models. However, the instructions on how to lock/unlock the control panel are printed on the front panel of these washers and are printed in the owner's manual.

If these prelimiary measures do not work, you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator intervention.

If you have questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore elite smartwash HE 4T control lock


The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.

I am getting a dl w/an f error


"dL" indicates Door Lock Failure: dL flashes if the following conditions occur:
-> Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
-> Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
-> Machine/motor control detects open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
-> Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lock is in a locked state.
Check for lock interference with lid or lock bezel
