Good Evening! Error dL is referring to your door latch assembly failing. Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset and if not the door latch will need to be ordered and replaced. You'll need the full model number located on a sticker below the lid down near the hinges to look up the correct latch for your model. It's not on the lid itself but rather tucked underneath and very difficult to see.
