If you push in on the door does the error code go away? If so, then it may just need an adjustment. This is a door error code. Probably a losse or faulty door switch. If you are a do it yourself person you can try shimming out the door switch from the inside. You will need to take the top off of the machine to see if you have enougfh room to get your hand down to the switch where it is held on by 2 screws. If there is not enough room then you will have to also remove the door gasket, front control panel and then the front panel to get to it. It may be possible to put a few flat washers between the door switch and the front panel and then put the screws back in to pull the whole door switch assembly back a little bit (therby causing the door to shut tighter). If this does not stop the DE error then the door switch is bad and will need replaced. Your model number does not appear to be a US model, so I do not know the correct phone number for you to order the part if you need one. You will have to call LG customer service (for the country where this model was sold) to get the correct phone number if you need to purchase a part.

Lg washing machine wf-sp950g de ( door error )

Hi Azlan.
de Door Error usually shows when the door lock either won't undo...OR The machine won't start after the door is closed.
Both these situations probably mean that the door 'Interlock' is faulty.
The interlock is the part of the door lock which prevents you from opening the door while the machine is working.
It's part of the electrical circuit and should only be serviced by a qualified technician.
Good luck

Lg model number wf-t1246tp; error code dE appears on display. however, door is properly shut

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,

I have problem with lg wf-t507 top loaded washing machine when i start it work for few seconds and than show DE .

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'DE' on an LG normally stands for 'door error'. It is possible that the door catch/sensor either requires adjustment, if that is possible on your particular machine, or will require replacement.
Sorry but you will need to call your local service engineer ;-0(
Good luck,

I am getting error DE in my washing machine, need solution for this. Kindly give me the service error code for LG WF-T7516HN top loader

HI there,

Well most of the times problem is in the door lock may be it's faulty. or it could be the door lack has failed/is failing or the control board, try closing the door properly and see if it works....... If further you have the same problem then you need to change the door lock (switch).

Good Luck

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My LG WF-TH700 washing Machines out with error dE.

Hello there:
This error code can sometimes also be shown as de or lid on the display. this error code is telling you that the lid switch may be faulty or that the ecu / electronic controle unit is bad and needs to be repaired so i would first have the lid switch checked and replaced if faulty also have the ecu checked and replaced if found bad .
also 1 thing you can try is to make sure the machine is empty and run a cycle like you would normally would and see if it reoccurs if it does than you will know it is one of the 2 that i mentioned but if it does not than you have a problem in the balancing or load sensor ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
est regards Mike
