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.

I cant get my kenmore elite he3 washer to start keep getting dl F error


Possible causes: (power off the mains first before checking)
Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
Door switch/lock unit failure.
1. Check door switch/lock unit.
2. Check the wire harness connections of the door switch/lock unit to the Central Control Unit (CCU). The wires shd be secured well.

Kenmore Elite HE3 (not HE3t) F11/dL error code


The part number for the CCU under the model number you have listed is 8182687. There is also a refurbished version of the CCU you can purchase for less (part #8182237R).

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. The CCU will be listed as item 15 (15A for a refurbished version) under the "Control Panel Parts" section.

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

NOTE: The cheapest site I found the CCU listed (NEW) was pcappliancerepair.com. The cheapest (REFURBISHED) is searspartsdirect.com.

Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer door locking mechanism issue


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

*&^% screws!!!


F2 = Long Drain. Most common cause is something (or lots of things) stuck in the drain pump. There are screws at the bottom of the front panel that can be removed to check it out. If the screws look like stars they are Torx head screws, get driver from most home centers.
