LG Tromm washer constant DE door error problem

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.

    I have the same problem with my 0642hw. I replaced the lock/switch assembly, but that didn't help. I also made sure that all seals are clean and that nothing is abstructing the door.

    As a side note, mine only does it during the rinse/spin cycle, but not during the actual wash cycle.

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 just gave me the same error.
    I cleaned the pump and emptied all the water from it.
    The pump is on the front of your washer under the door. Just remove the cover and unscrew. Have a pot to catch the water, it will stink.
    Then I checked the seal around the door and there was a dime in there and I removed it, now my washer is working again.

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

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.

    I later found a small round magnet which is used for sticking small reminder notes on refrgerator. It was a better solution.

I have LG ,Tromm washer machine front load have problem. Door is not closing completely .


The "dE" error code indicates that the LG Tromm washer's door has not been properly closed. Closing the door firmly usually clears this error. If the error does not go away once the doors closed, a service technician should be consulted.

My LG TROMM washer is giving me an error code dE what does it mean?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'de' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

How much does a broken thermistor typically cost? My LG front loading washer is 3 years old...


THAT THING RARELY GO BAD. CHECK THE CONNECTIONS ON IT FIRST. UNPLUG AND PLUG CONNECTOR IN FEW TIMES. WHILE YOU DOWN THERE, PULL IT OUT COMPLETELY AND SEE IF IT COVERED WITH SOAP SCUM, GUNK, ETC. THAT WILL GIVE YOU FALSE READINGS AND GIVE YOU AN ERROR CODE FOR THE THERMISTOR

I have exactly the same problem!


Try using the tub clean cycle and use a good dose of bleach or vinegear. Here is how to run the tub clean cycle.

To start the TUB CLEAN cycle:
1. Remove any clothing or items from the washer and close the door.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to the detergent compartments. Excessive suds may be produced and leak
from the washer.
3. Close the dispenser drawer slowly.
4. Power On and then press the Extra Rinse button for 3 seconds. (Prewash option will be selected.)
5. Press the Start/Pause button to start.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open to dry around the washer door opening, door seal and
door glass.

Hi, I don't know how to fix your problem, Lia, unfortunately, BUT wanted to say "Thank You!!" for mentioning that you can get the washer to run through the cycle by rotating the drum and switching to cold water wash! We'd tried unplugging, leaving it unplugged overnight even, but the code/beeping started immediately after plugging back in. I'm kind of longing for an old-school washer right now, thinking of all the things that can go wrong with the newer digital-age computerized ones :-) If you see this, please share what you did to solve your washer problem! Hoping it's not too expensive to fix...or I should say to GET it fixed :-\
