Right now I can't get the washer on . When I hit the control on button, select an cycle it doesn't turn on after a few seconds the fault code dl f comes on....For the fault code f 11 that comes on right before the spin or rinse cylce please help
Been like this for a couple of months for the f 11, just a day for the dl f code
Chances are it is the slightly corroded connectors. Remove the top lid. Carefully label/record the connectors to the control unit at the back. Remove it completely. Be sure to ground yourself first to eliminate static shocks. Remove the printed circuit board and just "clean" the connectors with a pencil erasor.
It looks as if your having a communication problem between your central control unit and your motor control unit.check wiring connection between these two components.if wiring is ok then you will have determine which of these components is malfunctioning.you can also remove kick plate and remove service manual located on either side at bottom.this should give you some help.

The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washing machine is an indicator
that there is a problem with incoming water. When there is little water
coming into the machine, the FH code will appear and the washer will
stop. There are a couple of common problems you can check while you are
resetting the FH error code. You will need to remove the power supply to
the washer to reset the code.
Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control
panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower
right of the wash cycle selector.
Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.
Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer
does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the
hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose
connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.
Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.
Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.
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.
DL error stands for Door Lock.Follow the instructions to repair yourself.
If your door hasn't yet locked and will not lock simply press cancel and try again. If this will not work and the cycle still will not start up then skip to step three.
If your door is already locked and you get an "F" error press and hold the cancel button and select drain/spin.If this still doesn't work and your clothes are trapped inside do not resort to getting out the crow bar and a sledge hammer.You can manually unlock the door by following these steps:
- Unplug washer or disconnect power. - Remove the lower kick panel. - Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. - Located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a teardrop shaped tab. - Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4˝ or until a click is heard. - The door may be now opened.
If your door fails to lock and your cycle will not start moderately but forcefully hit the back right hand corner of the washer with your fist.You may have to do this a couple of times,but you should hear the locking mechanism click so your washer is now locked.
F-DL code is for your washer and if the main control has not been replaced then that is what I would replace most of the time F-DL is also seen with a F-11 code later in the cycle, i am sure you hear the washer try to lock the door a few times and pop up F-DL. the main control part # is based off of the model#
Serial communication error
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU). 3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. 4. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle. 6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor. 7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations. 8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.
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.
