I had the same problem - my fix is simple, cheap and works great - obtain some of those double sided hook and loop (Velcro) straps used to tie cables in a neat bundle - the 3/8" - 1/2" wide version works best, these are approx 4" long and usually black in color - costs approx $2 for a package of 10 straps.

Cut off a piece from one of the straps, approx 1" long and glue this to on side of the neck of the charging base. Glue the reverse side of the remainder of the Velcro strap to the other side of the neck, position it with enough length to go over the top of the push in plug (when closed), at the top of the neck, and cover the full length of the first piece of Velcro glued to the other side of the neck + remember allow some additional length so you can easily grab the end of the long piece to release the Velcro grip and let the plug raise clear of the razor.

When the glue is dry, pull the long end over the top and position it to hold the neck plug completely down, and be retained by the first piece of Velcro on the neck - trim the long piece to length, remember you need a little extra length, to make releasing the Velco grip easier. I just pull on the long end of the Velcro, this closes the plug into the razor and simply push the Velcro together to start the cleaning process - simple and cheap.

Mine has been working for years.

I have a problem with my CDW60W13 Currys Essential dishwasher. The door will not click shut and springs open. I've had a look at the locking mechanism and can see nothing wrong.

There is usually a little latch on those mechanism to keep the door closed. If the latch breaks, the lock spring just pops the door back open when you attempt to close it.

I would repair the lock mechanism. Try for the part.

Bosch nexxt series 100 washer. washer willnot start three beeps and all the lights are on.


Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like a bad door latch/lock. It will require you to remove the front door seal spring to gain access to the part.

If this sounds like something you can repair I'll try and help in whatever manner I can or you may opt to call a pro.

Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck

Washer won't start, makes a clicking noise and than a code comes upF DL


Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or f dl means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

My whirlpool elite washer he4t or he5t door won't latch. How can I fix this?

You need to determine if the door LATCH is the problem, or the door CATCH. The LATCH is the electronic locking mechanism. The CATCH is the small peg that inserts into the latch when the door is closed. If you determine the catch to be defective, replacment should be self-explanatory. There's just a couple of screws that hold it in place on the inner door facing. If the latch requires replacement. The repair is a little more inlvolved. The following link explains:

Replacement parts can be purchased from any of the following web sites:

Replacements parts (if required) can be purchased from any of the following websites:

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

NOTE: You CANNOT adjust the latch by adjusting the door hinges.

Sers Elite front load washer FDL again~

The "Fdl" error occurs when the door latch attempts to lock, but cannot for some reason. Sometimes the washer can experience momentary glitches, which the manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes. Often, this is all that is required to correct the problem and the washer operates normal. You may not be unplugging the washer long enough to reset the computer. Barring the possiblity that you may have purchased a defective part, the remaining recommendations I have are as follows:

1. Make sure the washer is not overloaded to the point where it is putting weight against the door. If you have to force the door closed, this can cause latch errors.

2. Check the latch mechanism on the DOOR and make sure it is in good condition. The door latch may be working just fine, but if the mechanism on the door is damaged, it may not be staying locked.

3. Check all the wiring harnesses from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) to ensure they are all connected properly.

4. Check the connectors at the CCU. Connector 8 (the third connector from the RIGHT), along the front of the CCU is the Main Door Lock. Connector 6 (the 5th connector from the RIGHT), along the front is the door lock solenoids. Make sure these connectors are attached properly and not loose.

5. If the connectors are fitted properly and you still have the error code, you can confirm the CCU by removing connector 6 and taking resistance checks across pins 1 to 3 and 2 to 3. This checks the LOCK and UNLOCK solenoids, respectively. Both readings should be about 60 ohms. If the readings are abnormal, replace the CCU.

6. Connecter 8 is the Main Door Lock. To verify it, you have to start the washer on any cycle. Once the door locks, UNPLUG the washer from the wall. Check for continuity at connector 8 (pins 4 & 5, and 1 & 2) of the CCU. This checks to make sure the main locks are engaged. Both readings should be 0 ohms. Once again, if the readings are abnormal, replace the CCU.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Kenmore front load washer door

A lot of these errors on these front loaders can be resolved by simply unplugging the washer for 30 minutes to reset the computer. You may also attempt to manipulate the door latch by using the manual release lever to see if you can get the latching mechanism to stay open. The following link explains how to do this:

This is normally used when the door is latched with the door shut, but it still may apply in your case. If you attempt any of these preliminary checks and the latch still does not work properly, I would recommend replacing it. The next link explains how:

Hopefully you will not require any replacement parts. But, if you do, a replacement latch can be found at or Just type in your complete model number to perform a search for parts. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
