It appears your magnetic lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Washing Machine fills and then just stops. Won't agitate,drain, or spin.


There is a magnet that makes the washer work. The magnet is located on the lid. Defeating this safety feature will cause the washing mashing to not work properly. In order for the washing machine to function properly, a relatively strong magnet must be affixed to the lid so that it pulls the contacts together and allows the washer to run normally.

Have a kenmore elite washing machine which i purchased in 2005. The machine will stop in mid cycle and will start again when the door (top load) is opened and shut again. Could this be a problem with the...


what cycle does it happen in?close the lid and open it a few times,does it make a clicking sound,if it does i would say the switch is good,also you can do this,next time it happens open the lid carefully without banging the machine so you don't disturb anything,get a screw driver and stick it in the hole and see if it runs, if it does i'd say it's the switch,but i've seen this before right before it goes into the spin cycles,the clutch doesn't fall in the tranny. and when the lid is opened and closed the clutch falls.keep an eye on it and see where on the timer this happens,make a mark and see if it does it in the same spot,depending on how hard you close the lid it could be the switch,the timer sticking,i've tapped the timer when something like this happens and it sometimes starts or the clutch in the tranny,when you close the lid did you ever notice if you heard a clunking sound and then it starts to spin..also if you open the top console,unplug the lid switch and stick a jumper wire in the two outside holes of the part you unplug,the lid switch is closest to the right side clip and it's a white connector, you can bypass the switch to check it, all it is is a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open or instead of doing that you can stick a screw driver into the hole and let the machine run like that if you think it's the switch,let me know what you find.

Hi, dE MEANS DOOR ERROR,There is a little magnet that detects if the lid is open or closed & this magnet always falls off into the machine then pumped away. (If it gets past the pump with out jamming it).you can't just buy the magnet you have to buy a whole new top & most of the time this cause's the computer to fail as well

The machine only fills and does not run after


in most cases this is due to a lid switch problem the unit will not start to wash unless it thinks the lid is closed as the f/p has a magnetic switch its not a simple case of pushing the lid switch in the fastest way to fix this is to take the top control board off and cut the thin red and black wires running along under the right hand side of the washer and join the wire together tape them and try the washer then it should work fine as it is a safety feature to engage the brake when the lid is lifted its up to you as to weather you have the magnet replaced


best of luck

What is sensor magnet in LG 6.5 kg washing machine? Recently I got a dE error and when technicians attended, they said, there was problem to closing door lid. To resolve this, technician replaced sensor...


The machine has a small magnet on the front of the lid. There is a sensor (Hall Effect probably) in the electronics block that senses if the magnet is there (lid closed) or not there (lid open). They aren't that well attached and seem to fall off and wind up in the wash, which means they get lost when the washing is being hung out.
The machine will not start without the lid closed you get a dE error code which means the lid is not shut. You can trick it temporarily by putting a small round magnet inside the front housing if you don't have a proper replacement, as the real one needs to be quite strong. Not sure what they cost, my husband just did the 'trick' to our daughters machine, but a small button magnet wasn't strong enough to trip the sensor from the lid position, he had to stick it right next to the sensor.
Shouldn't be that dear, you can buy blocks of very powerful neodymium magnets in varying sizes for under ten dollars.

Check the lid cover. At the edge, there is a plastic housing some sort of a magnet. This is the magnetic sensor for lid cover open protection.
If the magnet is not there, place a magnet at the position on the washer where the housing will come in contact with the washer when lid is close.

Telmann washing machine TEL6TL


Telemann TEL6tl E2 Problem

E2 on screen means the lid is not closing properly and thus not activating the (hidden) switch that prevents the machine from spinning while the lid is up.

The lid switch in this model is not a direct contact switch between lid and switch , but it switches on and off due to a MAGNET embedded in the lid on the left hand side near the front. You will see a small indentation where the magnet SHOULD BE. My magnet had fallen off, so the lid could not activate the operation switch. I had lost the original magnet( about 1cm X 2cm) so glued another into place.

Machine is now fully operational again, and the job cost .78c.

If your magnet is still in place, the E2 fault could lay with the switch itself , which is fixed to the underside of the top casing of the machine near the front right hand side of the lid cavity. The switch measures 1cm X 3cm heavily black tape insulated. Access is gained by popping the 2 X2cm discs at front top of machine and releasing the 2 small philips screws here and a further 2 at the back top of machine. This operation of replacing the switch is best left to an electrician or washing machine specialist.

Hope that helps

LG Fuzzy Logic


Place a piece of magnetic material at the edge of the lid, for the wf-s6697tc model.
Standing in front of the washer, it is slightly off centre to the right (at the edge where the lid covers, space between the wording speedy soak & fuzzy). If you pay attention to the lid, you might notice some brownish rust stain.
This is where they place the magnet.

Noisy at very low volume!


I had the same problem... if it's mechanical... this is the solution....under the lid is a free floating magnet clap which centers and sits on top of the dics when the lid is closed.This rides to low when the lid is down and rubs on the inside lip of the lid which prevents the clap from falling out... solution... cut a piece of scotch tape the same size (circle) as the inside magnet surface of the clap... stick it on...now the clap with magnetic clap as before but will be a few 1000ths higher...mike
