F DL does mean that your door lock is faulty. But this means that either your door lock assembly or the micro computer that the door latch assembly plugs into can be bad. Since you've replaced the door latch assembly already, that makes this a very easy thing to pin down. You'll need to order and replace the microcomputer just behind the control panel in the front right corner.
Customer: replied 7 years ago. do i find out the part number for the microcomputer for my unit and is it easy to install?

it's easy to install, you'll need a full model number and then you can look it up at or call a local appliance parts store and they can look the part up for you.
