The door interlock unit, just behind the front outer panel, can go faulty and will need replacing. On some models, you will have to pull off the door gasket on the side where this is located, to get in and replace it.
Occasionally, you can access these from the top, with the top panel removed. If you are really lucky, as few come out from the front after removing a couple of screws. A few machines have the front panel removable, but this is rare. CAUTIONS: 1) ALWAYS UNPLUG MACHINE BEFORE DOING ANY WORK 2) some interlocks have an thin plastic air pressure pipe attached to the bottom, so ensure you locate this pipe, don't let it fall out of the way, so you can gat at it to push it on to the new interlock during re-assembly.TD

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close


Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

Hi! My LG washing machine is showing a "de" error code. It won't allow water into the drum. Please help


Hi, the error code "dE" signifies a door open error. This may simply be because the door is not all the way closed. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it, though it could also represent a number of other problems. There may be a faulty door switch, a malfunctioning electrical connection or a damaged gasket.

Display shows flashing 'door' warning,even though door is closed.....then when door is opened/closed a couple of times display will dissapear and re-appear every 3 seconds or so. Help!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

The symbol indicates there is a problem with the door lock. Either the locking solenoid or the door lock sensor is malfunctioning and requires attention. Sorry- Service call!

Light comes on for open door even though door is closed properly


almost certain door latch contacts are not making proper contact when door is closed. Give a firm close which might rectify it. Otherwise suggest latch replacement.

hi
check the spring on the door handle/catch,the easiest way to check this if you close the door and it indicates that the door hasnt locked,push the inner part of the handle towards the machine,if it locks then the spring is worn.(this is more commen than the interlock).

Door lock


Switch off. Try some WD40 on the machine lock (not on door) and open & close door many times, to ease out the lock.
