Jc, First check to see if the door lock pin is broken. This will be the little black actuator just above the switch. If that is ok, remove the top by removing the 3 torq screws on the tops back side. Slide the top off toward the back. Look at the main board in back on the right side. The second and third harness from the right are the door lock main switches. Reset these harness's into the board (unplug and plug back in). The harness that is 5 from the right will be the door lock solenoids, do the same. This is a 3 wire harness, if you have a ohm meter wires 3 to 2 two left ones should read 60 ohms. Wires 3 to 1, each end should read 60 ohms. This will ohm out the lock solenoid. Getting back to the first part, you can use a toothpick to plug the actuator switch temp. if that is broken, Catriver..post back.

Maytag Brovo 300 seies washer display says dl and will not wash

The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

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.

Kenmore smartwash error code dl and f? Won't start.

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 problem is solved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Alarm sounds and F dL flashes on w/p front loading washer

Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. This error occurs because the door cannot be locked. The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

When I hold the button for it to start it clicks and starts flashing F then dL It will not start washing

Hi,
The "f" part is saying that you have a fault, and the "dL" part indicates that your control panel thinks that there is an issue with your door lock. The brain will attempt to lock the door six times, then flash the error code. Press pause/cancel twice to clear the alarm. Then check your lock. Usually, it's something loose on the lock or catch; it can be the wiring to the lock being loose, or the control panel may have a fault. Start with the lock, and work back to the control panel.

Best regards, --W/D--

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl

The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate
