What has happened is either the Door Sensor or the input to that, has failed in some way... You will probably have to get it serviced, ask for a firm "Quote" from a reputable service man.

My lg front loader I close door push start get clicking noise at door switch and code de door error is it the door switch it fell off truck on to door face.


Error code 'DE' means a problem to lock the door.
Check that the door hook goes properly into the hole.
Check that you didn't put a lot of clothes in and these are pushing the door glass (maybe a test without clothes would be best).
Check that the door closes good and there are no broken pieces from the door.
If the problem insists, probably you need to change the electric door lock. Here is a video for your help. Generally, it is a cheap part. If you cannot do it yourself, you need to call an engineer.

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.

Lg wm1832cw de error occurs when starting the washing. after multiple tries, it might start


It is a door lock error caused by bad door lock switch or if your door is very hard to swing closed because the hinge is corroded, then the hinge could be causing the door lock to error.

I have LG ,Tromm washer machine front load have problem. Door is not closing completely .


The "dE" error code indicates that the LG Tromm washer's door has not been properly closed. Closing the door firmly usually clears this error. If the error does not go away once the doors closed, a service technician should be consulted.

We get a de code


A "DE" is a drain error, but a "dE" is a door error. If it was in storage, I'd look for damaged wire(s) to the door lock switch caused by a mouse. It is less likely that the door latch itself needs replacing.

Door latch


Hi,

DE error code is because there is a drain problem and it will not lock the door.

Code de


de is 'door error'. I just fixed this with a new door catch/switch (called a door overlock). Theres a bi-metal strip in there that makes the contacts as well as keeping the door locked closed when its working and it looks like this was the culprit as I was able to open the door even when the machine was filling. The de was intermittant, if you continued to open and close the door it would start eventually - if it does this try changing the switch, cost about £30.

DE error code


That is a door switch error problem.  The door latch is not sensing the door closed.  You may need to replace the door latch assembly.
