F/DL is indeed a door lock error. I had this on my machine, did a lot of research and getting some idea of how it works. The code is generated when the CCU can't lock the door. Possible causes are door latch mechanism, connecting wiring, or the CCU. I could hear clicking from the CCU on my machine which indicated to me the CCU was trying to lock the door. It tries 6 times before setting the F/DL code. I tested the latch and wiring from the CCU - OK. The clicking I heard had to be relay(s) so I figured the problem was relay contact failure. I removed the CCU board, determined which relays were suspect (there are two for lock & unlock). I changed them both and saved myself spending $300 CA on a new CCU. The relays cost just over $2 each. I found replacement relays @ Electro Sonic (www.e-sonic.com; minimum $25 order plus shipping $7.50). Relay made by OMRON part # G5LE-14-DC12 replacment for original G5LE-1-VD 12VDC. I'm not impressed to have to change a $300 CCU because of a $2 relay failure. For me this was worth the try as I have some experience working with circuit boards. The relays would be a quick repair for anyone with similar experience. Hope this helps someone.

I just had this happen the dL code was displayed, and I wiggled the main wire going into the back of the machine. The door instantly locked and the machine came on !! So in my case it was a loose wire. The machine is about 2 years old.

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.

GE WBSE3120 Washer stops mid cycle

if it makes a grinding sound when in spin this is the tub seals or bearing and basically you'll have to replace the washer.very common with this ge washer,not one of ge's best product,also why it stops mid cycle could be anything,this washer has a computer board biult on top of the motor that also failed,if your having all these issues i think that washer sold for like 500 dollars,it would cost more just to repair it,i wouldn't put 5 cents into it,do yourself a favor and get a new washer.

I've gotten the error code DL and then F, I tried sanding, unplugging but it still shows me the error. How can I fix it?

Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

Wont start

The thing is with the new machines and codes, you have to go with what they tell you. without a model number i can not be 100% sure. But i can say with great certainty that a DL error is Door Lock. This happens to machines sometimes and causes weird problems. It all depends on how the door lock is acting. Sometimes you can't get the machine to start at all, sometimes it will run a bit and stop. To fix this a new door lock would need to be installed. With the model number, I can give an average price and a part number if you wanted to get the lock yourself and repair it :)

Received an error code dl f on my Kenmore Elite 45986. Replaced the locking mechanism and I am still receving the same error and results. It just clicks and gives this error code. Thanks "dl F" error code...

The "Fdl" error code indicates a problem with the door latch assembly. The clicking sound you hear is the door latch attempting to latch. If it fails to latch, the wash cycle will not start and the error code and audible beep will occur. There should be a tech sheet inside the washer. It's usually located behind the bottom panel under the door, or along the inside of the casing on either the left or right hand side. The tech sheet will have a list of error codes, procedures on how to perform diagnostics, and troubleshooting hints. It's strongly recommended that you leave the tech sheet inside the washer, so you don't lose it.
Repairclinic.com carries the door latch for about $50 and is listed as item number 1094190.

Searspartsdirect carries it for slightly less for about $43 and lists it under the "Door and Latch Parts" as item number 7 (part #8181700).

If you go to my profile and click on "Tips and Tricks" I have a posting there on how to change the door latch on a front loader. It's a very simple repair that any Do-It-Yourselfer can accomplish.

If you can't find the instructions you need, or need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer displays DL error

The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.
