Question about LG WD-1280FHD Front Load Washer
The code means the main control board (PWB) detected that the door is open when the machine is started or while it is running. It may indicate a loose connection between main control board and door lock/switch assembly, the door is not all the way closed, or the door lock/switch assembly is faulty.
Make sure the door is closed firmly and the machine is not overloaded which may cause the load to push the door and cause the intermittent deactivation of the door lock/switch assembly. Check to make that the wire harness connecting the door lock/switch assembly and the main control board is intact and fully inserted to both. You need to take the panel off to access the main control board in the left rear side of the cabinet. The door lock/switch assembly can be accessed by removing the spring clamp that is securing the door seal to the outer lip of the door opening. Once it is removed, peel off the part of the door seal near the door lock/switch assembly to gain access to it.
Remove the screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel then take it out of the cabinet. The door lock/switch assembly connection can now be checked or replaced if no issue is found in the troubleshooting outlined above. Simply connect the new door lock/switch assembly and secure it back into position. Put the door seal back over the outer lip of the door opening and secure it with the spring clamp.
