FdL or F29 - Error Code - Compact Front Load Washer

Possible Solutions

FdL or F29 Error code means:

The door cannot unlock.

  • Firmly press the door in the area of the door lock. Then touch and hold the Power button for at least 3 seconds.
  • If the Hot cycle is selected, wait until cool-down and touch and hold the Power button again for at least 3 seconds.
  • Turn on the washer. If the Error Code still appears, check and correct the possible cause as indicated for the “Clean filter” error code. Then turn on the washer again. If the door does not unlock, touch and hold the Power button for at least 3 seconds. It's possible that there is still water in the machine and the door will not unlock. 
  • The Drain Pump Filter may need to be cleaned. See "Cleaning the Drain Pump Filter" in the Cleaning and Maintenance section above.

If the door still does not unlock, refer to the “How to Open Door in Case of Failure” section of your Owner's Manual. Before draining water/ opening the door, wait until the water has cooled down (for hot wash programs).
