The lock cannot be disabled, The lid removes easily and is also simple to replace.
Depending on where in the world you are depends on where you will get a lid, If you do a google search in your area for whirlpool spares you will get some results.

    Here's the problem...this plastic hinged top will just keep cracking. I purchased this same washer in Nove 2011...three months later the top hinge on the right side cracked. The local vendor replaced it for free. Today, I see that the other side has cracked and the vendor tells me the warranty has expired. I can get this replaced, but it is just going to keep happening.

SOURCE: Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light

Hi,

"dl"indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


Thank you !!

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

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
