Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
What does it mean when it keeps flashing "F" and "DL"
"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This indicates that you have a failure of the door latch, the latch pin on the door, interconnecting wiring, or the Central Control Unit (CCU). A physcial inspection of the door latch should be done first to determine, if there is any physical damage to any of the latch components. Next, unplug the washer and remove the top panel of the washer by locating and loosening the three screws that hold the panel n place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back then lift off. Perform a physical inspection of all the electrical connections on the latch and trace them to the CCU and do the same. Often, simply diconnecting each connector plug one at a time and reseating them can clear this problem. If you determine that you need to replace the door latch, the following link explains how:
You can purchase replacements at any of the following websites:
All these sites offer great service, so shop them all for the best price.
If you need further assistance in troubleshooting this problem, there is a technical data sheet included with you washer. The tech sheet is located behind the bottom panel directly below the door. If not located behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The sheet lists all the fault codes, diagnostics procedures and troubleshooting tips.
If the door latch checks out good, the CCU will require replacement.
If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

It is a Door lock issue,but not necessarily the door lock it's self, a quick temp fix (Believe it or not)is too take your fist and give it a whack on the top right rear corner not hard enough to dent it,just a jar,if that works you have a loose pin on the main control board under the top panel you can also remove the top panel and check all the connections going to the board. If no luck with the control then start looking at the locking mechanism.Here is a link to the service manual for the duet.

FDL is a door lock error and is caused due to an issue with the door lock when it is unable to lock/unlock. Please check the door lock mechanism/door switch assembly and replace the part that has gone bad so that the issue is resolved. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
