This suggests a problem with the motor, the bearings or the suspension rods that hold the tub basket. In some cases, it could be caused by an object between the inner basket and the outer tub. The unit detects too much force on the motor or uneven forces as it spins and slows down even when empty. When there is a load, the washer stops to protect the system.

First try lifting up the inner basket and turning it a small amount. If this is difficult, one or more of the suspension rods and associated hardware should be checked and the damaged parts replaced. Check for and remove foreign objects between the basket and tub. Finally check the motor, motor shaft and bearings to determine which parts need to be replaced if the problem isn't corrected in the above steps.

I hope this helps.

If your getting water coming out. Your pump is not working or is clogged with a coin check the hose. And have a shop vac ready to suck up the water. The door has a lock and should not open on front loaders till the cycle is complete and water is drained

Most likely it is a broken 'spider'. That's the 3 armed part that holds the inner drum to the hub. Not uncommon. Can be expensive to fix. Can be done yourself. Check out videos on YouTube or repairclinic or appliancepartspros.

Most top load washers have snap clips in front and hinges in back. You use a putty knife or equivalent to push in the clips(located between top and front of unit in the seem). Some others have screws on bottom near the legs that you unscrew and tilt front forward and then lift up and off. Good luck.

, : Control Lock
The Control Lock feature helps prevent settings from being changed during a cycle. Selecting this feature locks all of the buttons, except for the Power button, on the control panel. This feature does not lock the door.
While a cycle is running, press and hold Half Load and Energy Saver simultaneously for three seconds to activate or deactivate Control Lock.
- To start a new cycle, deactivate Control Lock.

It could be damaged or worn bearings. It can also be a broken spider. The spider attaches to the inner drum and is part of the spindle assembly.

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'm sure you double checked, but I have forgotten to plug the connectors from the control back together before putting the top back on. Seems obvious but I've done it more than once. Good luck. (And make sure your house breaker isn't tripped)
