DL is indeed a door lock error. The code is generated when the CCU can't lock the door. Possible causes are door latch mechanism, connecting wiring, or the CCU. You could hear clicking from the CCU machine which indicated to me the CCU was trying to lock the door. It tries 6 times before setting the F/DL code.
?Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
?Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly
All the best !

I had the same problem. I thought it was the motor it turned out I had a nickle wedged in the filter (bottom left behind panel) the nickle blocked the water pump makeing the pump overload.

I have today the same error code on model WD-11155FB. This code means that the speed of the electrical motor can no longer be controlled. The velocity sensor placed just behind the motor is probably damaged but it can be also the electronic board where is connected this sensor, or the wiring between these two items.

The micro switch or the lever that activates it seems to have been the cause of the Error Code 43. Have re-seated the switch in its holder and ensured the activating (out of balance) lever is moving freely. The switch appears to be OK and now it is all re-assembled, the Error Code 43 is gone. Machine is operating normally again.
Out of Balance Switch was located below the right hand side of the computer board (module).

It's actually a DE error code which stands for drain error. Pull the
little basket out that's behind the small door on the lower left front
(where the drain hose is) and look inside. The drain pump intake is
about an inch in on the left. Make sure there's nothing in there like a
paperclip or hair pin. If possible reach in and see if you can turn the
impeller. If it won't move there's something in there if it will turn
then the motor is probably bad.
worked for me
got this from mark1963

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
1) in my experience, sometimes this proves to be intermitent, and upon unplugging and waiting for 5 minutes does not seem to resurface again...
2)Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount.
this could prove to be very challenging to somebody who does not know what they are working with, i suggest if the problem is not intermitent, call a tech.. hope this helps.
