What does dl code indicate?


Hello. The error code means there is a problem with the door lock. The lock *may* be working correctly but the main board is not getting the indication of lock position(open/closed). Or, the lock may have failed completely--when you initiate a cycle, do you hear the lock engage? Is the door, in fact, truly locked? The lock is really just a simple electro-magnet. When energized, it magnetically pushes or pulls a lever so you can't open the door. Also, it contains the ability to let the main board know when it's safe to start the wash cycle. I hope I helped you!

Rear doors will not unlock


Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The driver door switch (DDS)


?€¢
The passenger door switch (PDS)


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The driver information center (DIC)


?€¢
The rear door lock/unlock relay (LBEC)


?€¢
The door lock actuators in each of the doors The rear passenger doors are controlled by the BCM through the rear door lock/unlock relay which is incorporated onto the printed circuit board in the LH BEC. The BCM controls the unlock relay by providing ground to energize the coil and controls the lock relay by providing battery voltage to energize the relay coil. The energized the relay and allows voltage to be applied to either the door lock motor lock or unlock circuits. Since the other side of the door lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the opposing relay to ground, the doors lock or unlock.
Do you know what the BCM is , body control module ! If you do not know about this stuff I strongly suggest you to it to a ASE certified repair facility ! Save yourself some money an aggravation !

Sounds like you have a door lock failure due to the fault code you have or it could be a control brd failure. Sometimes if either fails it will blow the other aswell.

Washer DL error


F/DL is indeed a door lock error. I had this on my machine, did a lot of research and getting some idea of how it works. The code is generated when the CCU can't lock the door. Possible causes are door latch mechanism, connecting wiring, or the CCU. I could hear clicking from the CCU on my machine which indicated to me the CCU was trying to lock the door. It tries 6 times before setting the F/DL code. I tested the latch and wiring from the CCU - OK. The clicking I heard had to be relay(s) so I figured the problem was relay contact failure. I removed the CCU board, determined which relays were suspect (there are two for lock & unlock). I changed them both and saved myself spending $300 CA on a new CCU. The relays cost just over $2 each. I found replacement relays @ Electro Sonic (www.e-sonic.com; minimum $25 order plus shipping $7.50). Relay made by OMRON part # G5LE-14-DC12 replacment for original G5LE-1-VD 12VDC. I'm not impressed to have to change a $300 CCU because of a $2 relay failure. For me this was worth the try as I have some experience working with circuit boards. The relays would be a quick repair for anyone with similar experience. Hope this helps someone.
