Hi there, I have a Kenmore Elite H3t and wanted to do a load of laundry today and it keeps blinking in Red DL and then F. I looked through my manual in the troubleshooting area and of course that Problem is not listed. I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in did not help. So my machine is not working . Do you know what I need to do to get it working. thank you.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error "dlf" 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 rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

I have a Kenmore Elite washer. I keep getting a F 14 code and a DL F code. What do I Do?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I understand that 'F14' for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines decodes as 'EEPROM failure' (control unit) and 'DL' is Door Lock- a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor.
Sorry but I fear both F14 and DL require a service engineer's attention ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
