Newer washing machine
If you have a newer washing machine that has a “DL” digital monitor, that means you have an error in the door lock. When the washer door cannot be opened, a door lock error can occur.
The main control board of the washer will attempt to lock the lid 6 times until it reveals the error code.
Whenever a DL error comes on the digital display, it is important to check the following things:
- To see if it is defective, loose, or broken, check the door lock assembly.
- For artifacts that may be blocking it, check the door lock and switch assembly.
- Check the connections to the door lock and switch assembly and main control board with the wire harness.
- Check the Assembly Failure of the Door Lock/Switch
It is also possible for the door lock light to flash if something has been stuck on the drainpipe or filter drain. During this condition, the dryer stops working which also indicates that the door is not locked and that the drainpipe needs changing.
