Hello

F DL is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the issue is resolved. However, you can also try to clean the door lock mechanism and blow some air with the help of hair dryer. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

When i try use the washer it starts to make a clicking sound then when i hit cancel starts to beep and it flashes f dl


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).

Getting a code of dl then f on display


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'dl +F' stands for Door Lock Fault. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Error message dl F-what does this mean?


door lock error replace the door lock if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation thanks again Rick
p.s if after you replace the door lock assembly and you still have the same code you would then have to replace the ccu (main computer board ) but most of the time the door lock assembly fixes this problem thanks again

F11 code on kenmore frontload washer HE3t


My f11 code is repaired! I got a clamp from Home Depot put it on the ccu unit on the right side tightened it shut and haven't got the stinking f11 code ever since. No more banging it again! I can finally do my wash without the horror beeping sound going off every time.

Kenmore he3t front load washer doesn't turn on, only two beeps. I've tried unplugging it and same result.


2 Beeps/E20--Error: Water dosen't drain. Cause: Drain is kinked or household clog. Correct.

ERROR CODE


Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the door lock mechanism has failed or the central control unit has failed. Replace the door lock mech. first. This should fix the problem. (before replacing anything make sure there is no obstruction around the switch or in the switch.) After the machine has been unplugged it may fix itself. if not replace door lock mech.
