Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then pull the door lock and switch assembly out. Transfer the wires to the new door lock and switch assembly then install into place. Put the door gasket back and secure it with the spring-hoop assembly.

Machine flashes F then dl. What can we do?

There's a fault detected with the door lock and switch assembly. The door lock is not working or the door lock switch is not activated. This indicates that the door lock and switch assembly is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced to address the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected and pull the wire out of the groove of the door gasket.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock and switch assembly behind the front panel.


Slightly lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it back off the front panel and out of the cabinet.


Transfer the wiring harnesses to the new door lock and switch assembly one at a time then install it in place behind the front panel. Secure the
door lock and switch assembly and put the eased part of the door gasket back into position over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before putting back and securing the retaining hoop around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.
Install the retaining hoop with the spring positioned at the bottom of the door gasket.

How does front panel come off (safely) to swap out door switch on kenmore washing machine 41744152400

The front panel does not need to be removed when replacing the door switch. What needs to be removed is the door gasket. Open the washer door. Get a pair of needle nose pliers then look for the retaining hoop securing the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Stretch the hoop retaining spring at the bottom of the lip of the door opening then carefully pull the hoop out. Make sure not to tear the door gasket or else water will leak through it.

Remove the two screws securing the door switch to the front panel. Peel off the door gasket near the door switch then pull the door switch off the front panel and out of the washer.

Disconnect the wires from the door switch terminals then connect it to the new door switch. Secure the new door switch back to the front panel then put the door gasket back over the lip of the door opening. Properly secure the door gasket to the lip of the door opening with the retaining hoop.

LG WF-T700 Troubleeshooting DE blinking

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.

Hi brennanjodi
I think your door interlock needs replacing. Turn off the power undo the front of the door gasket and that will get you to the lock mechanism. They're about £20 to replace.

I think I need to replace the assy, door latch

The part you are looking for, I believe, is the main door latch which is located at the top center of the door opening - right?. The part number is 893839 and costs $50.05. There is also a smaller door switch which is part number 454909 and costs $9.90. Don't know if you need this switch as well. The parts can be ordered on line at I am not in any way affiliated with the website. I am simply passing on useful information as I have used their service on many occasions and have always been satisfied with their fast shipping and service. In addition, the parts are the same parts used by your major appliance repair companies, but at a lower cost. You will, however, have to pay for shipping. If you wish to pursue this repair yourself, the cost is minimal. If you wish to have an appliance repairman come repair it for you, be prepared to pay an inflated price for the part and a labor charge in the neighborhood of about $100 or higher (the $50-$75 fee you mentioned is called a trip charge and should be INCLUDED as part of the price). In the end, you are probably going to pay about $200 for the repair. Of course, this is a modest estimate and it depends on which company you use. I hope this information is helpful to you.
