First of all, try unplugging it from the AC for about 30 Seconds. Then, plug it back in and wait 30 Seconds or a little more, to see if the Door unlocks. If it doesn't, find the Instructions that came with the Washer and look at the testing Procedures for your Machine. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, you may have to call for professional Help.

The "FL" Code probably means that the Motor isn't turning. You probably have a Board that is bad. The Troubleshooting Guide will help you determine if it is the Motor Control Board or the Main Board. Good Luck.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.


Washer Not Filling:


  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Judging by your comments I suspect there is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention 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!

Typically washing machines have a swtich in them that is pressure actuated, has a tube that goes up the cavity ( inside the outer tub ) and uses the water height to determine to shut off the water. If this hose is broken or something is plugged in it, it could think that it already has water or that its not filling at all (as long as its already started the water). Other wise I would make sure the washer knows the door is latched with some sort of indicator, because if the machine thinks the door is still open it will not fill.

The water wont start filling up - it beeps and then has the code "ddo" on the screen.


Hi,
The meaning for ddo error means "Dispenser Drawer Open"
To rectify this problem you should try opening and closing the door shut. There will be a magnet which shows that the door is closed or open.The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself to view the magnet. If the magnet is missing you have to replace it.

Thank you !!

FL means 'failed to lock' the door didn't lock, so it didn't complete the cycle. Sometimes it's just because the door didn't shut completely or you may have a bad door latch assembly, or worse case, a bad control board. First try unplugging it for 5 minutes, then try starting another load making sure the door is closed completely, if that doesn't help you'll need to open it up to test the door latch.
