Hello,

A dE error code indicates that the washer door was unable to lock. This can normally be resolved by performing a simple reset on the washing machine.
How to reset the washing machine:
1.
Press POWER to turn the washer off.
2.
Unplug the washer from the power outlet or turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.
3.
With the power disabled, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
4.
Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.
5.
For more information about how to reset your specific model, please refer to the owner's manual.
Press in on the door firmly and select any cycle. The washer door should lock, and the cycle should begin without an error code appearing on the display. If the cycle does not begin and the dE code appears again, repair service is required.

You should access the lid switch (the switch is inside the machine main housing near the door frame) and to see whether it become loose or was broken. Good luck!

SOURCE: LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer rubber seal on front

Use some detergent plus baking soda and mix it in with the water--rub it around (with an old toothbrush) to loosen the mold. Let sit for a while, then wipe water, mold, and cleaner away. Finally, rinse with clean water and wipe dry. Leave the door ajar to air out after each wash. It will help to remove the standing water each time. Don't poke a hole in the seal to drain the water out, because water will then run out of the bottom of the washer.

SOURCE: LG Tromm wm1814cw LE flashing on digital display,

Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

De error message on wash machine


For LG washers, the DE error indicates a problem with the door lock. If you just started the cycle and the error occurred, then the door couldn't lock properly. (The machine turns off and indicates the error so that the water won't flood your laundry area.) First check if there are any clothes between the door and the frame. If needed unplug the washer for 5 minutes. Then restart the machine try to open the door. If you pressed Pause, wait a minute or two. If the error occurs at the end of the cycle, it may not be unlocking properly.

The latch mechanism may have failed or the PTC sensor in the latch has failed. The entire latch would need to be replaced. Here's one: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/lg-door-lock-switch-6601er1004c-ap4441836.html . If the door locked failed with the door closed or the washer is under warranty, contact LG or a repair professional for service.

I hope this helps.

Wont start machine error come up


Door open error code can also be displayed as "dOE" On non-display panel models this fault code is denoted by the light for the door lock being lit or flashing.
  • Check door is closed correctly and latched
  • Check door handle for damage or wear
  • Check door safety lock if inoperative replace door lock
  • Check door lock wiring
  • If there is a clicking sound once or twice when the Start/Pause button is pressed the main control board may be faulty

We have an LG top load model WF-T7012EN. All of a sudden it would stop and dE message will be displayed. If you try to start it again, the same scenario will happen. We had tried to level the load and...


dE indicates a door lock error. Turn off and then unplug the washer to reset the machine. Press and hold the Start/Pause button button for 5-10 seconds. Connect the power cord. Turn on the washer. Open and close the lid to see if it closes properly. Try to run the washer through a cycle.

On some LG top-loading machines, the error is simple to fix. These LG top loaders used a magnet in the front of the lid that to be in place to trigger the lock. When the magnet breaks off or is misplaced, the dE error will occur. If you find the magnet in the washer, replace it in the lid. If you don't see the magnet, get another one. Keep the magnet in place with duct tape.

On other LG washers, the problem is the door not being aligned with the lock, the lock assembly or the electronic control not getting the lock message. Make sure that the lid is closing properly. Bent hinges can cause the issue. Check the latch assembly and the wiring between the latch and the control board. To check the latch assembly, you may need to remove it from the washer. Check the circuit with a multi-meter to ensure that the switch gets power. Replace either if faulty. If the latch assembly and wiring are good, then the control board may need to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

That is a door switch error problem.  The door latch is not sensing the door closed.  You may need to replace the door latch assembly.
