Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE4t Front Load Washer
I have been receiveing the door lock error for some time. I usually take off the top panel and remove the wire connector that leads from the door sensors to the main computer and then put it back on and that takes care of the problem. The error has been happening more and more. Do you think replacing the main computer board will solve the issue or might the problem be with the door sensor?
No...the Main Computer (or CCU) is much more expensive than replacing the door latch. "Fdl" or "Fdu" are door latch errors and usually means the latch requires replacement. The following link explains how:
This is a very simple repair if you follow the steps provided. A replacment latch can be found at searspartsdirect.com or repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number in the search menu. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS This does not mean that the CCU still may not have a fault. Its just much easier and less expensive to replace the latch first. More commonly, the latch is the culprit.
