This error code means your door lock/latch has broken. Replace your door latch and you should have fixed the problem. I hope I helped you.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start

sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

Model 45981 HE4t Washer

The code "dl" stands for "Door Lock". This was a problem with my machine also. Check to make sure you are only using "HE" type of detergent. In the manual it states that using other detergents than high efficiency will cause computer board miscues.
Unplug the machine for a day or less, then try again. This worked for me for a while. It finally failed (I was using detergents other than all HE) and a repair man reset the washer. This happened last month (June, 08) and now I only use HE and the machine works great.

My MDB7100AWQ has suddenly stopped working. It will fill but then stops and will not move into wash. When I press the drain/off button the lights work but it does not drain. I do hear a switch in the door operate when I press the drain/off.
