I am getting the F DL error code on my Whirlpool Duet washer. Why won't the door unlock? How can i diagnose the cause?

I have manually unlocked the door and closed it and restarted the machine but it continues to happen. I checked the resistance at the door lock solenoid at the connection to the control panel and it is 68-70 at the 5 to 4 connection and 128 at the 2 to 1 connection. It should be 35 at both. The resistance at the door main switch connection is less than one. It is supposed to be 0. THe meter I have has a +/- of 1 Ohm so I think it is OK. How hard is it to get to the door lock assembly? I am a little concerned that I might mess up the seals. Also, could it be the electronic control near the drive motor? I heard that this helps the locking mechanism.
