It should not keep locking unless you hit the child lock or its running.
Call the repair guy back.

De error message on wash machine


For LG washers, the DE error indicates a problem with the door lock. If you just started the cycle and the error occurred, then the door couldn't lock properly. (The machine turns off and indicates the error so that the water won't flood your laundry area.) First check if there are any clothes between the door and the frame. If needed unplug the washer for 5 minutes. Then restart the machine try to open the door. If you pressed Pause, wait a minute or two. If the error occurs at the end of the cycle, it may not be unlocking properly.

The latch mechanism may have failed or the PTC sensor in the latch has failed. The entire latch would need to be replaced. Here's one: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/lg-door-lock-switch-6601er1004c-ap4441836.html . If the door locked failed with the door closed or the washer is under warranty, contact LG or a repair professional for service.

I hope this helps.

  • Hi Chris,

    This is late for you, and probably you've done something already --- but.

    The door lock is easily replaced. It works with a little heater inside it that is supposed to delay the unlocking by pushing on a tiny lever that prevents the lock from sliding to unlock.

    The washer runs power through a resistor when the door is locked, and this heat keeps the bimetal strip (like in a thermostat for aquarium heater etc) bent, preventing the door from unlocking. When the washer turns off, the power to the heater/resistor is shut off, an when it cools off in a few moments, the bimetal strip relaxes and pulls the tiny lever out of the way.

    I expect there is a problem with the position or the flex of the bitmetal strip.

    If you don't have another switch handy right now, you can TEST the functionality by simply jumpering the two wires on the connector. This will bypass the lock altogether, but the latch will still work. When TESTING be careful not to let the door come open because at high speed that drum could grievously injure someone.
