Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
About a month ago my LG Tromm washer (approx 3 years old) began occasionally giving a DE door error and of course, stopping. I would open the door, close it, press the run button, and it would proceed. This has escalated to where it may give 20 or more DEs during each load. There is never anything I can see that is interfering with the door or its latch. Occasionally during one of these error marathons, it will display IE (input error)--again there is never anything at fault with the water input. Lately when the machine stops with a DE, it no longer unlocks the door, requiring me to press run, it immediately will go to DE again, and this second time, it will unlock the door.
A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it. biigg53566

My washer used to have a door error problem as well. We called in an appliance repair specialist and got the problem fixed though. Something was in the way and jamming it up. I am so glad that we got the issue resolved. Appliance Repair for the St Petersburg FL Area

Where to buy the magnet
Posted on Jul 01, 2015
My top loading LG washing machine was showing dE error frequently. It seem a small magnet at the door latch had come off. So I took a permanent magnet from an electronic device and stuck to the machine with an adhesive tape from inside where the control panel is situated. The dE error has disappeared now! This is a temporary solution. I shall find a small piece of magnet soon to fit inside the door.
