I need to replave the door latch assembly on my washer. Is it possible to find instructions on the procedure for removing the bad latch and replacing it? Thanks for any info you have
Answer Hello Steve. Make sure the power is disconnected. Then open the door and remove the cable off the front of the boot. Flip the boot to the inside and then remove the screws out of the door lock assembly and unplug the wires. Now you can replace the lock assembly on the unit.
i bought a replacement door lock assembly because i was getting an error code. i installed the new assembly and i am still getting the same error code. the wholesaler suggested i replace the circuit board because that usually burns out when the door assembly fails. does this sound right to you?
Answer Jack, Presumably you had a "DU" or "DL" error code. There is a possibility that the damaged door latch assembly could have damaged the CCU, but it's not as common on this model washer as the wholesaler suggested. You do want to recheck and make sure all the wiring harness connectors are properly seated in the board connectors and routed properly through the cabinet. Also check and make sure the door and door strike are properly aligned and engaging the latch assembly properly to the front panel, before you replace the CCU 8182689.
my washer give me a code f-dl I seen others say dl-f code are these the same codes for the door latch or a different part. thanks
These error codes are both the same and represent an door lock error. You will want to check the wire harness and the connections. If these check ok then most likely the door switch assembly is faulty and needs to be replaced.
My washer displays F11 and will not finish the cycle?
The F11 error code is a motor control failure: The Motor Control Unit has internal failure. If failure occurs during high-speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. This error code is only shown in Diagnostic test. Possible Causes/Procedure - Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts and spacers are removed, and power cord out of the unit. - Check if washer is on a dedicated circuit. Other devices on same circuit can create line noise and cause this issue.
- Un plug washer or disconnect power - Check the neutral feed to the MCU and CCU from the AC line filter.
- Check allwire harness connections between the Motor & MCU, and MCU to CCU,
are not broken orwires detached and connector internal pins are visible.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Plug inwasher or reconnect power cord.
- Verify the unit operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle. See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplugwasher or disconnect power cord
andwait for 15 seconds.

Answer Hello Byrne. Check and see if the door switches are bad and needs to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The washer runs fine no problems except sometimes it will not run the spin cycle. Is there any ideas? Thanks in advance.
You will want to check to make sure that the drain is not clogged up. If the drain is slow or clogged it will cause the unit to not go into the spin cycle. Also check to make sure that the door lock assembly is good. An intermittent door lock will cause no spin issue.
