Main ccu board bad

Posted on Jan 20, 2009

Not really a "solution" but after multiple issues with the "DL" coming on, i've managed, at least in my mind, to associate that although the washer is touted as being able to handle large loads, everytime i wash something larger than average, i will get the DL code. The solution has been a repairman until i go thru a routine of unplugging, close the door, it will flash the code, i will press stop and then start multiple times. after awhile, this can be a day or whenver i pass by the washroom, it will either feel sorry for me or disgusted...but it will start. tonight i am again washing...ah, hard earned victory but at least i have clean clothes!

Door Lock Error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
  • Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
most likely you will have to replace both door lock and ccu

Washer goes through cycle, until around 11 minutes until finished it stops, and goes into dL. Will not finish load. What does this mean?


Hi.

the error F/dL means Door Lock Error

The error is prompted when the door cannot be unlocked.

Here possible causes.

Door Latch mechanism broken
Door Switch Assembly defective
Wire Harness from Central Control Unit to the Door Latch or Switch Assembly broken
Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock or Switch temporary failure (it can be reset disconnecting power)

You will probably need to replace the door lock assembly. Parts must be tested first.

Regards.

Door latch to Kenmore Elite Oasis gas dryer has come loose. It will not close properly in order for dryer to start. Need instructions on how to repair or replace latch piece on door.


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Maytag Neptune door lock stuck!!!


Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

Can't get door opened. model #GHW9150P


the f represents failure and the failure is dl door lock .if i was there as a repairman i would inspect the wiring from the door lock assemblie to the [ccu]computer console [the button area you push to start]also inspect door lock assemblie and the computer.if looks normal i would replace the cheapest part first[but not the wiring if inspection ok]so thats the door lock assemblie.you can unlock door by removing bottom front panel and feeling up in the door lock area ,their is a tab to pull down,then door will open.to replace door lock assemblie you go thru tub boot area by door latch. hope that helps God bless ,tom

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
