Re: what is the routine for resetting the dl error code?
Hi mate first thing I would do is unplug the machine and turn off the water valves red and blue before you take out the drain hose get a basin and keep it with you at the same time put the hose into the basin bring the two down to the floor when the last of the water is empty you should be able to open the door if you can still not open the door take the top off the machine MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS STILL UNPLUGED if you have a narrow arm you can feel down where the interlock is and move your fingers around the interlock until it releases the lock maybe the pump is blocked our the interlock needs to be replaced

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'F' + 'dl' stands for Fault Door Lock. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. It will not reset as a service engineer's attention is required 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!
See Phoebe 112 latest solution! This is a common problem with these washers. For a quick fix you can usually get it going again by unplugging it for 30 mins. so the computer will reset. You will hear a slight buzzing noise when it resets. If it keeps doing it, go to the comment for Feb. 14, 2009 and try that if you are handy. Unplug the machine before doing any of this as with any machine that is electric or you will probably get the shock of your life.
I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:
PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS. The four lights above the START button will begin to flash. Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN". Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button. This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.
IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.
Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!
I own a HE3 kenmore elite for 4 years now and the troubleshooting codes are: SUD When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This causes the cycle to go longer to remove the excess suds. Reduce detergent amounts or use HE detergent.
The F02 error I had with mine and it is a drain problem. Book says check the hose for kinks, clogged or is it more than 96 inches above the floor. On mine it was the fan pump on the forward motor that drains the washer. It was worn and not pushing out the water fast enough. You will hear a high pitched whine at the front bottom of the washer if this is bad.
To reset the washer from the F02 error, select pause/cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or dissconnect power. good luck
Teecee, F11 is a communication error between the main board and the motor control board. The main board is on top and the motor control board is behind the lower panel. Sometimes the harness to these boards become loose causing this error. You would have to get at them and reseat the connections. F dl has to do with the door lock mechanism. You might of just had the door open when you reset the machine. To get at the main board on top you have to remove the 3 screws in back for the top. It will then slide back and off. To get at the motor control board, you will have to remove the bottom panel. The board will be in the back. Catriver..post back.
