DE shows-the door will not lock.I even took it apart.

I need a parts manuel to see how it is put togerther. It looks like the small "rod" that goes in the spring (I think) is missing.

I just went thru all of this. i read everyone's comments that i could find anywhere online. finally i read that one guy took his door switch apart and looked at it and put it back together and it worked, well out of desperation i did that too, and low and behold, it started working again. that poor guy had replaced the water pump and the door latch and the circuit board. even all of that didn't fix his, he said, but once he took the old latch apart and then put it back together it started working, go figure

Washer door will not unlock. I powered off/on but the door stays locked. It continues to display E3/F5 error codes and the locking mechanism is clicking but it remains locked with clothes still in it.

First, unplug your machine. You will then need a T-20 torx driver - remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Pull down on that panel and you can then pull it away from the washer. Once you have done that, reach up and you should feel a ring just below the door lock. Pull that ring and the door will open.

Be aware though that the Fr error for Whirlpool use to mean a drain problem. If the machine does not drain, it will not want to let the door open. After you get the clothes out, if you want additional help, let me know.

DE error does mean the door latch,but there are three parts that could cause the error code.If you have changed the door lock already then the main p.c.b/computer board has failed and not registering the door lock but there is a 5-10% chance it's the wiring connecting the two parts together.So basically you need to change the main p.c.b & if that doesn't work it needs to be rewired.unless you know how to use a multi-meter then you could test the wiring for a definate answer.THANKS ECO KIZZA

My lg washer is flashing a dE message when i try to start a load

Mine is also. The metal latch on mine is loose & not fitting in the closing part properly. I took it apart & can make it work manuelly, but can't get it stiff enough to fit correctly. I hope to find how the latch fits on the door properly (need a manuel that shows it) to make it work. As of now it looks like we will have to get a new door with that part on it. When I get it to work (a few days) I will post another solution.

Hi I have a Samsund Washing Machine SW65ASP2 triflow and i put a load on and it went find. Went to do another load and it came up with Code DE

DE is a door lock error it could be the door hasn't been shut firm enough or the door lock may have failed. Sometimes the pin that goes through the handle and ****** comes lose the door would have to be taken apart to check for that and in some rare cases the main module can be faulty.
