The "DE" code indicates a door open error. This can be caused by the door not closing all the way (this could be because of bent door/hinges or the door gasket bunching up and not permitting the door to close properly), loose electrical connections at the door switch or powerboard assembly, or the door switch itself is faulty. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity would mean a bad switch. Also check the door gasket for "bunching" and you can unplug and reseat electrical connections. These are some areas to look at. Be sure to disconnect unit from power before attempting any repair/troubleshooting. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My lg wf-t1340tp keeps giving me de error,how o i ix it pease


This DE error means Door Error i think in your machine door there is a small magnetic lid.. If the lid is broken or its missing from the particular place means the DE will appear. So just change a magnetic lid its just a small amount dont change PCB Board for that issue.

Hi Carol:
The "DE error code" is indicative of a Door Error. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening.



Here is a link to a service manual that should help you diagnose it. Keep in mind that LG models are sometimes difficult to diagnose.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'DE' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
