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.

Well most of the times problem is in the door lock may be it's faulty. or it could be the door lack has failed/is failing or the control board, try closing the door properly and see if it works....... If further you have the same problem then you need to change the door lock (switch).
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Door Error. Could be that the lid gets bumped open while washing. Make sure it is secure, or it could be a loose connection on the wiring of the door switch itself. This feature is used to prevent small children from sticking their hands into the machine while it is operating, it switches of the working components as soon as an interruption is made with the Door switch.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck :-) - J.Q

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'de' does stand for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor becoming apparent with the extra movement of washing requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
