Close the door firmly and press the "Power Off" button if the door does not lock when a cycle starts. Press the power button to clear error codes and restart the cycle.

Try unplugging unit for 10 minutes see if it will reset the board

DL is a door lock error

the only other thing I would suggest is the door sensor
