Customer Question

My kenmore series 700 washer isn't working and "DL" keeps popping up

Error DL means that your "door latch" has failed. Open the lid and make sure the plastic actuator on the lid isn't broken which goes down into the slot on the top frame of the washer to lock the lid. If that checks good, the door latch itself will need to be replaced. Below is a link to the exact latch you'll need to order for your model number and there is a video at the bottom of the link which shows you how to replace the part yourself.
