Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Whirlpool Cabrio Washer keeps giving me the DL (Door unlocked code) even though I can look under the lid and see the latch extend out. I think the plastic to the glass lid has warped, keeping the actuator arm from coming into contact with it to give the signal that it's locked. If I pause it, open the lid and slightly bend the plastic toward the direction of the lock mechanism and then reshut it and hit start again it will work for a while longer. Seems to happen under numerous hot loads and probably why the plastic has warped. Before I go buying a new lid that will warp again, do you think this is the problem. Thanks! Brian

The load finished on my whirlpool cabrio washer (topload) but the machine won't unlock the lid?


you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced

DL or F 83 is a door lock issue. Make sure the light is off before opening the lid and also check where the lock is for build up a gunk.
