Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
"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. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access you can prop the front feet of the washer up ( a 2x4 works well for this).
If the door latch and interconnecting wiring check out good, the CCU will require replacement.
If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
