My washing machine is 1 month past a year old. The dl light

This answer was rated:

My washing machine is 1 month past a year old. The "dl" light is on when i go to take the clothes out of the washer. They are mostly spun through if not completely. It has been happening occasionally for about 2 months but it is happening more often now. When I try to restart it is very difficult to get the error message to go away. It makes a group of clicking noises when I try to restart. I just keep pushing buttons until it works again. Including unplugging it which doesn't always work. LG top loader HE WT5101H. If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate it since my 1 yr warranty just ended . Also, if need be would a smartdiagnosis over the phone be possible with this issue.
