    We are getting the same "dl" and "f" messages. We have tried unplugging and plugging back in but that is not resetting the computer.

    I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis top loading washing machine that keeps showing the letter DL. The clothes in the machine are half way through the cycle - water still in there. When trying to reset it, the machine kept beeping and not resetting. I ended up unplugging it. Suggestions?

This is a Door Lock Error. The service manual lists the following causes: Door Lock Mechanism is broken or removed from door. Door Switch Unit Lock Failure-Unplug washer and check door switch, wiring connections, and the connection to the CCU (Central Control Unit (You have to remove the lid of the washer for this). To get at the switch, you have to remove the lower front panel. These are torx, I believe 3 screws. By turning yourself on your head, you can visually inspect the lock, and manually lock/unlock to check for bind (pulling/pushing a black plastic handle about two inches long with a teardrop shaped handle on the end.

Washer won't unlock flashes f14.....Kenmore Elite HE4t

F14 for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines means EEPROM Error.

The Central Control Unit (CCU) receives it's data from an EEPROM on board the CCU, if there is an error reading this data, it will cause this error.

A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error. Check CCU. So its likely you'll need a new CCU board.

Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 year parts warranty on that CCU.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T quietpak 9 washer. It has stopped the wash load with about 11 minutes left several times. It gives and error code DL then F alternating. The door remains locked and anytime...

Hi,

The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

Let me know if you want me to help on this.

Kenmore Elite HE4t stopping in mid cycle with F abd DL errors

See Phoebe 112 latest solution! This is a common problem with these washers. For a quick fix you can usually get it going again by unplugging it for 30 mins. so the computer will reset. You will hear a slight buzzing noise when it resets. If it keeps doing it, go to the comment for Feb. 14, 2009 and try that if you are handy. Unplug the machine before doing any of this as with any machine that is electric or you will probably get the shock of your life.

HE4t Washer

"F06" is a Motor Speed error. The following link explains how to troubleshoot and some common causes:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

The first step to troublehsooting should be to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears following a computer reset, follow the advice given in the link I provided.

If you have questions, or require additional assistanc, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
