"Fdl" is a failure of the door latch assembly. This is an indication that the Central Control Unit (CCU) does not detect the latch locking properly. You can doublecheck the connector plugs to the latch to ensure they are in place, but most commonly, the latch requires replacement. This is a very simple repair job. The following link explains how to replace:

I have found two very good websites that carry the latch assembly. Go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your complete model number. There should be a door latch heading on the next page, with an illustrated view of all the parts and part numbers. This is an excellent site for component location. Repairclinic.com sometimes will carry the same part at a cheaper price, however. I usually use the first website to identify the part and part number, then take this information and do some comparative shoppinig. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part number provided by Sears and take it to your nearest appliance parts retailer. If you have questions, or require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore Elite washer. I keep getting a F 14 code and a DL F code. What do I Do?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I understand that 'F14' for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines decodes as 'EEPROM failure' (control unit) and 'DL' is Door Lock- a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor.
Sorry but I fear both F14 and DL require a service engineer's attention ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

My washer keeps saying DL


DL is the drainline or pump. Find where the hose is that drains the washer, follow to the pump. It is most likely just clogged, take it off, it should have a bladder probably filled with coins, bra pieces, stuff. Good luck it should take an hour even if you think it is difficult. Reviews are welcomed.

Washer code says dl? and wont start


"Fdl" is a door 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 how to troubleshoot the problem:

I have included parts resources, if required, and the steps required to replace any defective parts.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I am getting a DL on the top load washer


The Kenmore Oasis and Whirlpool Cabrio washers are essentially the same. Following is the Whirlpool Installation and service manual for their Cabrio washers.

The DL indicates a problem with the door lock mechanism. See the section on troubleshooting and display codes.

Washer displays message of dl when trying to start washer


Hello bculwil Welcome

“dL” (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid
keeping it from closing. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear
the code.

Or the lid lock sensor is faulty and needs to be diagnosed and replaced
