The FdL fault code indicates that you have a problem with the door lock assembly. This is often caused by a failed door lock but it can also be caused by a failed wiring harness connection or in some instances by a failed central control board.
Check for damage to the door hook on the washer door and look for anything that could be clogging the catch on the door lock assembly on the front panel of the washer.
You may need to check the wire harness connections on the door lock assembly. The images below show the procedure for accessing the door lock assembly on this type of washer. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
A little trick I have found is to remove the top of the washer and push down lightly on the connector that is labeled dls5 this connector should have four black wires. this connector is located on the central control board under the top. Use an insulated screwdriver to push on the connector and start a cycle. If the door locks, I recommend replacing the central control board. It has a bad solder joint on the board. We often see error code F11 also with bad solder joints on the central control board. If pushing on the connector did not make a difference, I would suspect a faulty door lock first.
