Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or "F dl"means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

F dl = Door lock error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock
it six times before displaying the error code.
Possible causes/procedure:
¦ Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
¦ Door switch/lock unit failure.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door
switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

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.

Hi. this is a door lock mechanism failure code. these mechanisms will become unstable overtime. simply replacing this damaged door lock assembly will fix this issue.

Getting FL error with Beeping and can't open door now


This just happened to us.

There is a release cord/string that can be accessed from the front of the soap/softner dispenser.

Remove the trays in the dispenser and reach towards the front of the machine. Find the end of the nylon line. Grasp firmly and pull to your left if your are facing the maching. I had to pull a few time before the door opened because I couldn't get a good grip and I didn't know how hard to pull without breaking the string. It might help to push in on the door at the same time, to realease.

I have to say, I was really surprized to find the nylon line as I was looking for a way to remove the tray and try reaching to see if there was a latch release.
