AI got here after googling the same problem.
There are many reports of this "dHE" error - all with BRAND NEW MACHINES !

I rang LG in Sydney, Australia today and amazingly the girl on the phone said there are no known issues with this dryer
(In Australia the combo dryer is known as WD14700RD ) - 7kg washer / 4kg dryer.
Mine has same problem. Whenever the dryer is selected in the program, it stops after the wash phase and flashed dHE (or dHe, can't remember) and thats as far as it gets.

Its a tech, call out tomorrow to try & fix it.
Very poor LG, these are brand new machines, many reports of this problem from googling it but LG have no knowledge a problem.

This may end up being a recall or at the very least, some public announcement of this dHe problem with this washer.
New buyers beware ... It is a fault with brand new machines.

    Follow up - After service call out.



    Service man found several possible causes.

    He unscrewed the top of the machine off & said dHE errors are related to the dryer components. He started a dryer cycle & watched & lisened to machine.

    He observed the dryer fan was not starting up.

    He unplugged the power cable to the dryer & replugged.

    The fan now started up, but only with cold air.

    He then looked towards the front of the machine & noticed several cables had come loose from their sockets, one he identified was the heater element cable.

    He plugged that back in & another unknown cable was also loose. He plugged that back in.

    It worked.

    dHE error gone & dryer fan started & pumped out hot air.



    It seems at least a few of these machines during transit (from South Korea?) fail due to cables coming loose from their sockets.

    dHE errors result if fan cable & fan heating element cable come loose.

    My thanks to WAM electrical repairs in Box Hill (Melbourne) for helpfull advice & successfull repair.

    For people looking at buying this machine, it washes & now dries perfectly well & I am happy with the machine.

    But beware that this problem is out there (there are several other reports I read) which is easily fixed but does require a service call out, under warranty of course.

I have a lg wm3431 and it does not dry i get and error code of dhe every 10 minutes is it expensive to fix?


The dryer heater is not working. You will need a technician to diagnose this problem. It is possible that the condensate tube and 2 thermistors are clogged with lint debris and will need to be cleaned out.
Good luck

WASHING MACHINE DOES NOT GO ON


Check your display panel again- there is no such error code for the LG WD-3245RHD. You can have: "dE", "tE", "FE", "PE", "CE", "LE", or "dHE" but there is no "D5" error code.

The DHE error is dryer heat error. It's a problem with the heating element or thermister. You can find the service manual herehttp://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/129017-8.pdf

Error code dHE


Several reports in Australia of brand new LG Washer/Dryer combo (model number WD14700RD) getting dHE error's with very 1st dry cycle.
I bought a LG WD14700RD last week, and yup, washed fine.

Dryer cycle results in dHE error.
Everytime.
Cycle stops & you just have to power off the machine.

Service man found several possible causes.
He unscrewed the top of the machine off & said dHE errors are related to the dryer components. He started a dryer cycle & watched & lisened to machine.
He observed the dryer fan was not starting up.
He unplugged the power cable to the dryer & replugged.
The fan now started up, but only with cold air.
He then looked towards the front of the machine & noticed several cables had come loose from their sockets, one he identified was the heater element cable.
He plugged that back in & another unknown cable was also loose. He plugged that back in.
It worked.
dHE error gone & dryer fan started & pumped out hot air.

It seems at least a few of these machines during transit (from South Korea?) fail due to cables coming loose from their sockets.
dHE errors result if fan cable & fan heating element cable come loose.
