The DL error just came on. Is there something specific we need to do to fix this? It has been working fine, but then all the sudden the error started. Upon initial machine start, it works fine, but then if...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Presumably it is still under guarantee/warantee? You should contact the washer's service department before doing anything else as 'DL' does stand for Door Lock (error).
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor needing an engineer's attention ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer show code dL

On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Do you mean "F dl"? That's a problem with the door lock - it tries to lock the door but for some reason (usually mechanical) it can't. Try closing it a little firmer. Sometimes the mechanism needs an extra push to get it to throw from one mode to another. If that doesn't help replace the latch mechanism. if that doesn't work replace the CCU assembly.
