Door error occurs although I am able to close door

I just went to start a load of clothes and I can close the door but when I press wash cycle, it doesn't even try to latch (well it doesn't sound like it anyway) and the door error comes on. I have unplugged the washer and plugged it back in and it still give the door error.

    We got a reply from frigidaire saying...press and hold the start/cancel button at the same time for 6 sec. Then try to start the cycle again...if that doesn't work press and hold the options and select button for 6 to 10 sec..then try to start the cycle. So far for us that has not worked...maybe that will help you. I have written another website for help hoping I can get an answer quickly and cheaply..ours is only 1 1/2 years old.

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.

Zanussi Washer Dryer wont wash!


Sounds like the switch that tells the controller that the door is closed and locked is actually bad or the plastic molded part holding the switch is broken. Inspect the interface for cracks.

Why is my washer displaying a "DR" when I push start?


  • 1 Press any button on the display panel.
  • 2 Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.
  • 3 Open and shut the door. A "DR" error code indicates that there is a problem with the door, most likely that it has not shut properly. Check to make sure there are no clothes or other items caught in the door.
  • 4 Open the door and gently wiggle the door latch if the door does not click shut. Clean it with a damp cloth to remove excess dirt or debris that may prevent the door from latching into position.
  • 5 Close the door and re-select a new wash cycle and "Start."

    My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.


    Washer Not Filling:


    • Door Not Closed and Locked
      • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
    • Delayed Start Feature
      • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
    • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
      • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
      • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

    If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

    1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
    2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
    3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
    4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

    This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
    Is the washer door firmly shut?
    The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
    Were you washing a large load?
    Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.

    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
    2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

    Door Lock Error
    A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
    • Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
    • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
    • Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
    • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
    most likely you will have to replace both door lock and ccu
