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.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Just because the door "appears" to be fine does not mean that the sensor mechanism or latch is working properly.

What is the error D3

I think that should be a "DE" error code. On LG machines the DE error code is for a "Door Open Error".
Check the condition of the door lock, door hook and switch as this will give the error code above, the switch can be checked with a multimeter for condition. You might need to replace the door hook or the internally mounted switch.

DE error code

That is a door switch error problem.  The door latch is not sensing the door closed.  You may need to replace the door latch assembly.
