Question about Kenmore 95002 / 95004 Electric Kitchen Range
The door latch will not retract. I was allowed to open door but now latch will not go back up in slot, therefore the door will not close completely. I have an error message and I have done what manual said to do to unlock. It does go away for a few seconds but comes right back and the latch is still out of place.
Thank you Furman
The FDL code is a problem with the door latch. The clicking your hearing is the door trying to latch. There should be a tech sheet inside the washer. It's usually located behind the bottom panel under the door, or along the inside of the casing on either the left or right hand side. The tech sheet will have a list of error codes, procedures on how to perform diagnostics, and troubleshooting hints. One thing I would suggest is to open up the relay and try to clean the contacts.

There could be couple things. First, try pushing the door closed
as you turn the handle. The latch may have dropped into the strike hole
completely, binding the latch. Or you may try lifting the door as you try and
open it. Friction is the one thing that most often happens causing a latch not
Another possibility is that the latch may have become detached from the knob set. If this is the case, you will have to remove the lock from the door, and from there you can open the door with a flat blade screwdriver. I recommend replacing the latch as well. If you remove the lock from the inside of the door, using a flat blade screwdriver you can pull the little 'T' that sticks out from the latch on the inside of the hole. This pulls the latch back away from the strike, allowing you to open the door.
There are different configurations of latches, and they activate like way. You could run into a long latch the lock runs through. You can use a large flat blade to activate that. If you have the type with the half moon, use the outside of the lock body, stick it into the half moon, and turn the whole thing to retract the latch.

The latch houses the retractable part that catches the
striker plate. If the retractable part does not retract far enough, then
possibly that might need to be defective and need to be replaced.
