Question about LG Washing Machines
I have a LG Top load fuzzy logic washing machine. Machine takes wash options correctly and takes water but when it just to start the washing it shows DE problem blinking. What I came to know from the manual it means the door/lid is open. However the lid is closed. What should i do to rectify it. Is it just a door problem or a circuit probelm. Any one can pls help me out.
I have the same problem. please let me know if yours got fixed

Hi there, i've got the exactly same problem but i've checked the magnet.
it's still there, no brokens. i took the magnet out, tested it on a metal object and it's still sticking. i've even checked the surroundings of the door to make sure that nothing is blocking, stuck or attached.
what could be the other cause and solutions for this problem.
Thank you in advance

The washing machine gives a flashing beeping DE error that the door (top loader) is still open while this is not the case. The small magnet has broken/fallen off. Attach a new magnet to the door (top loader) that will trigger that the door is now closed.
This guide will tell you how to replace a lost magnet (that triggers the cpu of the washing machine that the top loader lid is closed). Without this little magnet the the washing machine does not know it is safe to wash because it will think the lid on top is still open.
This modern kind of top loader washing machines (2009+) do not seem to use a latch to close the door at the top, but rather a magnet to signal the door is closed. This magnet is at the front of the lid. When the magnet breaks off there is an indicator that the door is still open (which in fact it is not)

If the magnet is in place and the problem persists then the reed switch needs to be replaced.
