SOURCE: What is sensor magnet in LG 6.5 kg washing

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.

No lid lg washing machine model wf t507 top loader were is sensor to make wash without lid


Appears that the lid originally had a magnet on the right side. So you can try to use one on the sensor that was activated by it.

Hitachi washing machine sf6500px washes ok but wont spin, digital signal says dE, does anyone know what that means please?


im not 100% on hitachi gear dont see alot where im from, but for most washing machines DE normally means the lid is open as they have small magnets in both the lid and frame of the washer, most machines will not begin to spin if the lid is not shut they will fill and wash but not spin purely as a safety precaution, if the lid is shut it means the lid (you may have a latch that actually locks the lid shut or just a reed switch magnet sensor that simply detects if its opened) reed switch or lid lock is broken or faulty normally pretty quick and easy to repair

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.

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.
