Parts for all major brands of appliances can be purchased through Sears or an online retailer. The door lock has sensitive mechanisms that make it difficult to bypass.

The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the door is not latching properly. Check the lid or door operation to be sure it's not binding and that the door alignment is correct. Also, check the door/lid hinges to be sure they're not binding. Finally, make sure the door catch is in place and not broken. You may need to replace the door hook/catch or the door lock assembly.

Front load washer starts to aggetate but then shuts off and front door is leaking

Hello;As far as your machine shutting off it may need to be re leveled.Some Model,s have A cut off switch built in so when agaitator is spinning it will shut down so there is no more shaking that may break other part,s that are not in line/such as barrings/ seals Etc.Try to level your washer by adjusting the legs in each corner or maybe they could be not adjustable,in this case place A level from corner to corner on the top and have someone slide A piece of shingle under the corner that needs to be brought up so the bubble on your level is in the middle.This is A 2 Person job,if you still have the same issue you may have already broke the seal around the shaft and will need A repair person lets hope not.As far as the leak that may also be caused by it not being level and the door is not making A good seal.Also the seal around the door on A front loading Machine does wear out anyway so you may need to order on in.Be very careful with that leak because it could run back into the electrical components and hurt you very bad or burn out your Machine it is nothing to fool with on A front loading unit.But try to get it level first before you start spending money you may not have to spend.All the best and good luck.

Door lock not engaging on our spledide XC 2100

I'm Sorry to post a complete "Gerry Rig" solution to the problem: I inserted a plastic clip in the door lock to fool the machine that the door was locked; removed the clip then secured the door with a tension rod. It ran its full cycle without a leak. I think the plastic door mechanics was inadequately engineered. Our Machine is less than 6 months old?- Im on the road & have to make things work on the fly. Warning my next fix might include Duct Tape Good Luck Everyone Kevin_ByDesign

I have a kenmore Elite he3t that keeps displaying DL. I was able to get it to lock by holding in the door till locked but now it just keeps beeping and cannot get door lock to engage. Repairman replaced...

I have exp. this problem before. I know of 3 causes for it.

1. The door lock is faulty. You will need to call Sears in for this. This wasn't my prob., but I got a free door lock replacment, anyway.
2. The washer shook loose a control wire to the circuit board. This can be caused by excessive vibration. You need a special type of screwdriver to open the top by removing the 2 screws in the top corners on the back. Slide the top off, push all the wires in, JIC, then put the top back on. Easy fix. I solved not having this happen by using the high spin speed instead of the extra high speed spin.
3. The control board is faulty. Call in a service man, pay $a lot, he will order the boatd, wait 2 more weeks so he can get it, let him install it, pay $a lot, use only HE detergent, or else this will happen in about another year.

Whirlpool machine fell over and selector knob broken can i buy a new one

A selector knob is a very common part. You should be able to order on line at any of the follwoing websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing. Shop and compare.

The first three sites on the list also include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating the parts you need. Ordering on line can save you a little from the retail mark up you find in parts stores.

If you do not wish to order on line,however, look up the part number on the Sears website since nearly all Sears washers are manufactured by Whirlpool. Take the part number to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This may be a part they carry in their in-store inventory (some selector knobs are commonly carried). If not, they would have to order it for you.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim on a TOP LOADER and around the door facing on a FRONT LOADER). I hope this helps you.

Motor wont run

Your door lock is bad. Don't trust the door lock light because this will fool you. Even tho door locks 1 of the circuits is not continuing. Replace the door lock. Very easy to do. Do this by peeling back the door boot at the lock side. Reach hands inside for access to wiring and remove door lock switch.

Kenmore Elite HE3t

You are correct, the "Fdl" error code is a door lock error and is generally caused by a failed door latch assembly. This error can also be attributed to a failed CCU (which there is a lock solenoid) and/or interconnecting wiring. Now...barring that you did not purchase a bad door latch, you will need to inspect the wiring harness to ensure you don't have any broken wires or loose connections. If the harness checks good, the only other solution I have is to replace the CCU. Many of the early models had some problems with frequent failures. Sears (actually Whirlpool) has since come out with some more reliable computers. You can order a replacement at and have it shipped directly to you. This is normally not a part that an appliance dealership would carry in their inventory and would have to be ordered anyway. So...why not cut out the middle man? Just type in your model number and look under the "Control Panel" heading for item number 15 (part #285924). The prices on these have come way down. They used to cost about $220. I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but the good news is, the price is much less than it used to be. If you need advice on how to replace the CCU, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.
3. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub.
4. With the new CCU in hand, carefully disconnect each connector from the old CCU and swap them one at a time with the new CCU. (This is the easiest method I know of to do this. This will avoid the possibility of getting any connectors crossed).
5. Once you have all the connectors moved to the new CCU, use a screwdriver to lift up on the release tabs that hold the old CCU to the mounting bracket and remove.
6. Now carefully insert the new CCU with all the connectors in place on the mounting bracket and snap into place.

Another method is to use a digital camera to take photos, or use the tech sheet that is located inside the washer (behind the lower panel under the door). The tech sheet should have an illustration showing all the connector locations. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

My Whirlpool washer is keep saying F-DL and won't work

"Fdl" is a failure of the door latch assembly. This is an indication that the Central Control Unit (CCU) does not detect the latch locking properly. You can doublecheck the connector plugs to the latch to ensure they are in place, but most commonly, the latch requires replacement. This is a very simple repair job. The following link explains how to replace:

I have found two very good websites that carry the latch assembly. Go to and type in your complete model number. There should be a door latch heading on the next page, with an illustrated view of all the parts and part numbers. This is an excellent site for component location. sometimes will carry the same part at a cheaper price, however. I usually use the first website to identify the part and part number, then take this information and do some comparative shoppinig. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part number provided by Sears and take it to your nearest appliance parts retailer. If you have questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Door interlock flashing

Same issue with loose solder joint on the relays inside CCU (computer control unit)
the same bad CCU is used by several manufactures.
you have to open the CCU and re-solder the the relays to the board. they have microcracks around the legs.
you will get the door lock issue randomly.
to prove the issue open the top access panel .and pull up on the center black plastic connector and the issue will go away.
