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.

Google your washer by model and google the code list. It could be something as simple as the drain is clogged. We had the same problem. It was a simple fix.
