Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
DL code is a door lock failure. If you get an F11 code you will most likely need the main control board.

The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.

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.

sounds like door lock issue but probably not lock itself remove top (3 screws) along back of top ..at rear of machine is control board ..if you are hearing a clicking noise at time door is supposed to be locking try wiggling connectors on control bd if i remember they are the pink wires if door locks then you have a bad connection on control bd may try wedging something under connector to help hold in place but only true fix is a control bd..good luck
