Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool Duet GHW9250MT2 that is intermittently having the dreaded having a DL error. It will stop mid cycle and start beeping with the error code DL11. The door will remain locked and it will just be stuck. I would like to try the solder the relay fix I read about on this forum but need the repair/service manual for my model so that I can do it correctly.

Thanks to Coldcut and several others, I have followed the trail of problems and solutions and successfully fixed the annoying (to say the least) FDL and F11 error codes issue on my Whirlpool GHW9400PL0 purchased in 2005, broken in 2008. I too was extremely frustrated with a load of wash taking 1 or 2 days to complete. Some of the fixes (unplugging the washer for an hour, simultaneously pressing start and cancel) worked temporarily, but eventually I had to call for service. Before that, I fearlessly took the door lock unit apart (not recommended) and reinstalled it. It did not work. I ordered a new door lock. It did not fix the issue. Coldcut already knew that would not work but I tried it anyway. Not a big ticket item and I was afraid to muck with the CUU circuit board.

The whirlpool service center sent a repair guy out within the week, but he failed to show on the scheduled day. Calls to the service center confirmed that he was on his way. An hour late, the service center confirmed I was next on his schedule. Two hours later, I asked to speak to a manager who listened to my compaint and informed me in no uncertain terms that they did not care about customer satisfaction and would not be interested in monitoring their repair partners. I am so glad I took a half day off work without pay to wait for someone who did not value my time. I told the service center I would never buy another Whirlpool appliance and they politely told me that "it was my decision". Indeed.

The repair guy showed up the next day (another no pay day), asked me what the error code was, checked his computer, and informed me I needed a new CCU at twice the price of major online parts suppliers. I sent him away after paying the $80 service fee, and ordered a new CCU online.

With the new CCU on the way and nothing to lose, I took the CCU out of the machine. gaga24008 had wisely advised to be careful prying the board out of the case (thank you) and following Coldcut's instructions I resoldered the relay legs with my circa 1968 Wen soldering gun. Put everything back together (I had previously removed and replaced every connector in the entire machine) and waited for the 6 whimpy relay clicks to prove it didn't work-- but it did work! I've completed 15 or so loads of wash since, and no problems. I'm hanging on to my expensive replacement CCU just in case. I'm wary of the postings which refer to immediate problems after installing a new CCU. My next step will be to hang the dang thing by a bungy cord. Thanks to the many people who have posted solutions to this aggravating issue. I'll be visiting FixYa for any future issues with my tools and appliances.

DL is a 'Door Lock' error code.
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. The Central Control Unit (CCU) will try to activate the lock 6 times before displaying the error.

Potential Causes
• Door Lock Mechanism has failed
• Wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Central Control Unit (CCU) has failed.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washer code

Hi Keitha1

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

You want to know what code dL means on a whirklpool duet washer.

This is what works for me 99% of the time:
Simply unplug the washer for ten minutes. The onboard computer will reset and work like new.
Please understand that you are not being shortchanged. There are hundreds of codes and with this new computer tech. they mostly require a repareman. To save you money the manufacturer has designed it to reset itself after ten minutes to solve most problems. Try this first, you can always call a local pro later if you want.

Feel free contact me again!

you have a communication problem between your door lock and your ccu board. Are you hearing a click click click before it fails? If so this is a relay inside your ccu board. Replace the board this will solve your problem

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

I Agree, I don't think it is any other board, I believe the CCU (central control unit) has gone bad as it keeps on stopping mid cycle. If it was the Motor Control Board (MCU) then the washer motor should have been causing problems (which isn't the case) so replacement of CCU will be a great option. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool duet front load beeped and flashed f with no numbers and stopped mid-cycle. now what. i've pushed red button x2 and tried spin/drain and nothing. now it is stopped again. help!!


In many cases these error codes can be erroneous. If you reset the Central Control Unit (the Main Control for the washer), in many cases, the problem will clear. You must unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in order to do this, however. If an error code returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.
