Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
"Fdl" is a door latch error code. This could be an indication of a door latch failure, or a defective relay on the Central Control Unit (CCU) that controls the door latch.
If you cannot get the door to open, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains how to access:
Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicig inside the unit. In some cases, using the manual release can return the washer to normal operation. However, if you still have problems there is a tech sheet inside the appliance that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot them. The test points required to diagnose the problem are also included. The tech sheet should be located directly behind the lower toe panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. I would begin by checking all the interconnecting wire connectors between the CCU and door latch to ensure the connectors are all seated properly. Unplugging them and reseating each one can help.
If you determine the door latch to be the cause of the problem, the following link explains how to access and replace:
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

Hello shadow183 - Typically DR is a generic door error code. Possibly the door is not shutting properly, either it is sagging and not latching properly or the door sensor and the main control board are not communicating correctly. You would need this to be diagnosed by a professional technician in order to properly repair the machine.

Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.
