I went to Whirlpool's website and went under Help with a Product and found the answer.

The SUD message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds. If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Good luck

An explanation of your error code can be found at the following link:
In a nut shell, usually one of the motor windings fails, causing the Drive Motor to not rotate at the correct rpm, or not at all. Or, the Motor Control Unit fails. Both are simple repairs and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you wish to attempt this repair, let me know and I can give you the steps required to complete it.
These parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading on the next page. The MCU will be listed as item number 1 (part #8181693). The Drive Motor is listed as item number 16 (part #8182793). You can also try repairclinic.com, pcappliancerepair.com, and partsstore.com for comparative pricing. If you require further assistance, please let me know.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washer code
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber
You want to know what code dL means on a whirklpool duet washer.
This is what works for me 99% of the time:
Simply unplug the washer for ten minutes. The onboard computer will reset and work like new.
Please understand that you are not being shortchanged. There are hundreds of codes and with this new computer tech. they mostly require a repareman. To save you money the manufacturer has designed it to reset itself after ten minutes to solve most problems. Try this first, you can always call a local pro later if you want.
Feel free contact me again!
