Cabrio Washer Error DL

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error DL

The Cabrio Washer DL error code happens when the main control detects a problem with the lid lock assembly not being able to lock properly or the control cannot determine if the door lock assembly is in a locked or unlocked state. The steps to take to try and remedy this error are below.

  1. First unplug the washer for a few minutes and plug it back in most times this will reset the board and allow you to start a new cycle.
  2. Next you want to inspect the door lock and make sure there is not anything in the way that would be blocking the lock bolt from extending out of the assembly. Sometimes soap scum build up can block it.
  3. If none of the steps above worked then either the lock assembly is faulty or the lock circuit on the board is bad.

  1. dL code on my Whirlpool Cabro washer, Model # WTW7300XW0; WOULD LOVE TO SEE A VIDEO ON THIS , please!!!!!! Thanks!

    1. The dL code is a door lock error code. The only thing you can do is try and reset the electronics by killing power to it at the breaker/fuse panel on your home for one full minute then restore power. If after that the problem persists the lock will need to be replaced. The lock assembly you need for that model is linked below.

      The video is linked below.

    1. Yes that is the correct replacement upgraded lid lock and below is a video that shows how to replace the lid lock assembly on those models. The lid lock you are ordering looks a little different than the original but it’s the same exact replacement method so don’t let the different look of the upgraded lid lock assembly throw you off.

  5. I have a whirlpool washer, model # WTW8240yw0. Having same issue with DL code. Unplugged and work like 2 more times but now is not working. Cleaned lock as best as we could, any videos or advice would be great.

  6. Good afternoon! I have a Cabrio Whirlpool washer. The DL code keeps popping up therefore my washer is not locking nor so my washer will not run a cycle. i tried many steps to see if I could get it to work and now come to the conclusion that i need a new locking device. Can you send me a video instructing me how to install a new locking device in my washer. I would really appreciate this! thank you for your time, have a blessed day.

    1. Sure I would be glad to but I need the model number of the washer as there are different styles of Cabrio washers that have different lid lock assemblies.
