SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9150PWO Have F11

Well du is a door lock error but it can also mean an error with communication to the main control board or ccu. f11 is also a communication error in either the ccu or the mcu ( motor control board)......easiest thing to try is to unplug all your connections to the ccu and plug them back in and try it again.....sometimes a wire harness just may be loose....if that dosent work I would look at replacing the ccu ( central control unit )

SOURCE: Door will not lock and wont start.

The problem is a door latch failure. This is typically an indication that the door latch is broken and/or the electrical connections are loose, or you've experienced a monentary "glitch". The first step in troubleshooting this problem is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of your washer. In many cases, this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the problem reoccurs, then you have a genuine problem.

If unplugging doesn't work, unplug the washer again and remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Looking down from the top, locate the door latch mechanism on the right hand side behind the front panel. Carefully unplug each connector ONE at a time and reseat them to ensure they are snug. Follow the wires to the CCU (located at the top center of the washer behind the wash tub) and and do the same with each door latch connector ONE at a time. This reassures that all the connectors are snug and seated properly. If the problem still doesn't clear, the switch needs to be replaced. The following link explains how:

NOTE: You can replace the latch by performing all tasks from the top if you like. Some people prefer this method, because they don't have to remove the door bellow. However, working through the front, as I have outlined, can offer better access.

Replacement latches can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. Just use "Search by Model Number" and type in the model number of your washer (located along the door opening). Or, you can use a site that you prefer. I recommended these sites, as they have offered the best pricing and service to me in the past.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: ERROR CODE F28

Unplug the machine at the mains. Remove the detergent tray. Reach all the way back with your hand in the slot where the detergent tray normally fits and feel for a lever. When you find it pull it forward. Then replace the detergent tray. Plug the machine back on and the error code will have reset and the machine will be useable again.

Our front loading washing wil not start. I get readouts of "F" and "dL" with a clicking sound


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'F' and 'dL' stand for 'Fault' and 'Door Lock' indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

Now a bit of FixYa/ John C added value- methinks you could do with a manual- for now and later!
Unfortunately FixYa cannot provide manuals direct - members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-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!

I have a fault code of "F DL "


Hello and welcome to FixYa


DL f is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the issue is resolved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

What does the fault message "F dL" mean?


"Fdl" is a lock latch error code. This is an indication of either a defective door latch, defective Central Control Unit (CCU), or an interconnecting cable problem between the two. The following link explains:

I have included parts resource websites in the link provided, if parts are required. If you have any questions, please post with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'dl' + 'F' stands for Door Lock + Fault. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

Door won't lock and controls say "dl" then f. I


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'dl' stands for Door Lock and 'f' means 'Fault. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Sorry but your washer requires a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

For an instruction manual you will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!

Good luck,

I have a dl error message on the screen


You don't say what type of machine you have, but dL often times means that there's problems with the door lock, or most often, the control board in the machine is not getting the signal from the door lock (bad connection)
