Question about LG Washing Machines
LG wf-t800C/ WF-T1000C - the DE door sensor error light keeps coming on but i can't find where the sensor is... i have found a little plastic latch on the clear part on the front broken but that does not clip on to anything... and when i was cleaning the back gap between the door and the machine around the hinges, i found a magnet which seems likely to be involved with a sensor BUT i can't find where the magnet should slot in....help... i live in Asia...

you will need to replace the door sensor, this error will appear until it has been replaced. it is inside the unit and pretty much hard to get to if your not familiar with workin on it. take it to an LG tech or some one whos familiar with it..........
good luck LG's are very sensitive.

This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

The "DE" code indicates a door open error. This can be caused by the door not closing all the way (this could be because of bent door/hinges or the door gasket bunching up and not permitting the door to close properly), loose electrical connections at the door switch or powerboard assembly, or the door switch itself is faulty. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity would mean a bad switch. Also check the door gasket for "bunching" and you can unplug and reseat electrical connections. These are some areas to look at. Be sure to disconnect unit from power before attempting any repair/troubleshooting. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
