Re: Getting F dl error on Whirlpool Duet HT
"Fdl" is normally cause by a failure of the door latch assembly. However, before assuming you have a bad door latch, the manufacturer recommends you unplug the washer for 30 minutes to reset the computer. If the error still persists, here's a link that provides all the instructions necessary to replace the latch:
Searspartsdirect.com carries the replacment latch you need. Just type in your complete model number and look under the listings on the next page. There should be a link for door latch parts. Repairclinic.com also carries to part, sometimes for less. I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

That is the solenoid clicking. dl is a door lock error, and you can test and replace the door lock switch, but I am doubtful that will correct the problem. I really hope it does, but I have seen the dl code with the solenoid clicking at the rear of the(Whirlpool Duet) washer before and it was a faulty control board. I hope I am wrong, but... You can try unplugging and resetting the washer. In the case I saw, the machine would reset, but gradually got to a point that it had to be reset numerous times. (too many). Anyway, I hope I am wrong and best wishes. (Don't forget to test the door lock switch. Use a multimeter and check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped.
It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
