Machine won't start code dl F


The machine is not starting because the door lock fails to lock the door as what error code FdL stands for. It flashes after the door locking routine fails to lock the door after 6 attempts. Replacing the door lock/switch assembly is the only viable if no problem is seen with the wire harness connecting the assembly to the central control unit. The link below contains the detailed instructions in replacing the door lock/switch assembly.

Error dl f: door will not lock to start wash


This is obviously a door lock/switch assembly failure. The fault code FdL flashes if the door locking routine fails, after six attempts, to lock the door. You should hear the door lock clicks six times before the fault code flashes. Replacing the door lock/switch assembly is the only viable solution and it's a do-it-yourself repair. You only need a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the door gasket retaining hoop and a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions on how to replace the door lock/switch assembly.

I have a Megtag MAH5500BWW. I am currently experiencing the door not latching. A month ago it would lock shut, now it will not lock to wash. I have tried unplugging the unit with no success. My panel...


You will need to replace the wax motor. In the mean time, usually if you slam it, it will lock and the load will wash. Unfortunately, it is only a fix--one time, it will not unlock. There are instructions already posted to manually unlock in within fix-ya--don't try to pry open the door. The wax motor can be bought for about $10 on ebay. There are also kits that say to replace a couple things on the 'board' to do a full fix. Check on YouTube for directions on how to replace the wax motor.

Good luck!

Kenmore front load washer goes through wash and rince cycles but will not spin


These are symptoms of a broken door lock and switch assembly and the only viable solution is replacing the said assembly if no issue is found with the wire harness connections. The machine will not advance to the spin cycle unless the door lock spin switch is activated. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening and avoid injuries during the high-speed cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly and it should solve the problem. Click on the link below for the detailed instruictions on how to replace the door lock and switch assembly. The part number for the door lock and switch assembly of your machine may be different but the instructions still apply.

Door will not lock and code on panel reads"F" then


f the door fails to lock after six (6) attempts "Fdl" will display. The "Fdl" error code indicates the door failed to lock or the control does not detect the door being locked. The likely failure is the door lock mechanism. There is always a chance there could be a loose wire connection between the door lock mechanism and the Central Control Unit (CCU) causing the error too.

I added the instructions in the image below on how to remove and replace the door lock mechanism. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing and replacing the door lock assembly.

Door wont close


I just posted a solution for you on your previous post. I understand that your door will not close. The door latch has probably been damaged. You can try locating the manual release on the door latch assembly and pulling it to see if it resets the latch. Follow this link to see how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

If it doesn't reset, you will need to replace it. Use the link I provided to you previously for the instructions on replacing the door latch. A replacement latch costs approx. $43 and can be repaired by YOU. It's not a difficult repair job at all. You can save quite a bit if you read the instructions I have posted and do this yourself. Don't get discouraged, if you need help I can guide you.

Coded"F dl"


"Fdl" is a door lock error. It's usually attributed to a defective door latch mechansim and/or wiring harness from the Central Control Unit (CCU). More commonly, however, the door latch is the culprit and needs to be replaced. Post back with your model number (located around the door opening) and I can give you advice on where to get replacement parts. If you go to my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks", I have step-by-step instructions on how to replace a door latch on a front loader. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet washing machine door lock error


My front loader has the door locked and I can't open it. I have already turned off the power and that didn't solve the problem. The manual says that if you try to open the door too soon after the cycle completes, then the door locks. How do I open it now? What do I do?
