Question about Washing Machines
Looks like a Daewoo? DE means "Door Error" which is usually a failed door interlock switch. With the door open, have a look at the rubber gasket , around this is a steel band with a spring on it. Prise it out with a flatblade screwdriver. Pull the door gasket from the cabinet. (It has a lip that fits onto the cabinet) Push the gasket back into the machine so you can gain access to the back of the front panel. Undo the 2 screws on the right hand side of the door opening, the door switch will then be able to come out. Make sure the machine is UNPLUGGED from the power!. The door switch will have a socket connection to the switch. Pull the connector off and fit a new switch. Its good to mark the connector first as it can go back on both ways. If you put it on backwards, the machine wont work. Refit in reverse order to stripping the machine. The steel band can be a pain to refit as you have to stretch the spring so that the band and spring fit back into the groove it came out of. Get the model number and call up your nearest parts supplier for a door interlock. If you cant find one and you are in Australia, Castel Electronics in Melbourne are the Australian Distributors for Daewoo Whitegoods.
