If the door lock itself isn't bad, then these F/dl's are usually caused by a flakey wiring connection. Lotta this going on in all Whirlpool products lately, laundry and refrigeration. Undo/redo all wiring connections at the door latch and from the door harness to the CCU. Clean the connections. Reposition the door latch, even a little itty bit can make all the difference. If the door is tweaked, it can stop actuating the door latch properly.
I have been able to stop the F/DL code by unplugging the DL3 connector from the CCU (machine control board) and spread the terminals inside the connector for a tighter fit.
If all that checks out, then, in my experience, it has been a bad CCU. And to just make sure, when you start it, and you here the faint, "click click...click click...click click...click click...beep f/dl", turn the washer off then back on again, and with the palm of your hand, "pop" the back center top and the support frame, if it runs by locking, then get the CCU.

This is the CCU
This is the MCU
I hear clicking from the CCU.
BTW, all the wiring looks good on this unit. Which is the DL3 connector?

When you say CCU, do you mean the board that is down low beneath the tub? Or the board that is above tub and lays flat? Because the board that is above tub in back laying flat is where the clicking is coming from (the CCU).
Undo/redo all wiring connections at the door latch and from the door harness to the CCU.
I said what I mean, and I meaned what I said!

Looks can be deceiving and usually are with electrical stuff. Best thing to to is to do what I said (disconnect/reconnect/tighten terminals) without presuming you can tell what's going on by appearances... because you can't.
As for location of harness connectors on the CCU, refer to the purdy pitchers in the service manual ==> http://appliantology...ol-duet-washer/
