SOURCE: Locked Lid, error code "du"

blat, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Hit the power key and do the following: press any key except for power, start and stop in this order, press and hold for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press and hold for 3 secnds, release for 3 seconds, press and hold for 3 seconds. The 88 should light up in the display if done right. While the 88's are showing (you have about 5 seconds) press the same key again. You are now in the manual test mode. Now by pressing the 2nd rinse or xtra rinse button, you should be able to lock and unlock the door mechanism. You can check the p-12 harness on the main board to make sure it is seated all the way. This test proceedure has to be done pretty precise or it will fail....Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: kenmore elite top loaded washer has problem that indicates Lid

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame, just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Some models will have the switch located on the right-hand side of the lid rim opening, while other models will have the switch located on the left-hand side near the lid hinge.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

My defy laundromaid 720 does not stop the waterflow once the drum is full, which leads to water running out the bottom of the machine and then gives me an error LE


problem either in the water level control switch or the solenoid valve that shuts off the water
if the water doesn't shut off but it progresses progress to wash while still filling, it will be the water solenoid valve

How do you fix Error Code OE on defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 ? Machine washes, but when it should start to spin, nothing happens - it's just making a noise for a while, no water releases and then...


If draining is not completed in a specified time limit the fault code OE will be displayed.
Check the drain hose is free (not kinked or deformed) and check there is no dirt in the drain filter.
The filter is located behind a cover on the kick-panel at the front of the machine.

My defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 suddenly stops spinning and gives a ue error


I had the same problem: E9 error when switching the machine on. This indicates something is wrong with the pressure switch. (or connection to the pressure switch). When you open the top cover at the back of the machine it will be in the right hand corner (when looking from the back of the machine). This is a round device with a clear tube coming in at its bottom and a three wire connecting plug at its side. When unplugging I found one of the pins corroded (green tarnish). After cleaning it off with some steel wool the problem became intermittent - indicating the connection is not too sound. Just bending the pin slightly did the trick causing it to soundly make contact inside the plug. Problem solved!!

I have a top load machine which shows LE error code despite lid is closed properly. This continues for half an hour then machine starts working again but the error resumes after every two minutes. Plz help


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

LE message, will not lock the door - Daewoo front load


Hello there:
This is a fairly common problem with these newer machines Here are the 2 most common fault codes on these machines I have listed below this post.
If the machine is still under warranty i would suggest using it normally they will repair this for free
and some of these have a recall on these machines
so i would contact the appliance center where you got this from and see if you can get it repaired ok?

"LE " persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace switch, linkage, lock solenoid or control board. 1E persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace lid lock switch or control board.

Daewoo washing machine dwf-75ts


Found the manual for a similar model. LE error code indicates a "Lid Open" error. Most likely the little switch that is tripped when you open the lid has failed due to corrosion or some other reason. If you can find an equivalent switch then replacing it should do the trick. Otherwise, you can simply short the connection so the machine thinks that the lid is always closed. WARNING: This effectively overrides the open lid detection system and poses the risk of having the unit run a spin cycle even with the lid open! find a replacement switch if you can. good luck! just shorted mine out temporarily and it works -- until i can find the right switch.
