I have this problem too for my LG Intellowasher. I suspect it is because you're selecting "Rinse Hold" from the options. Try turning the power off and washing again on another setting to see if this resolves the issue.

When you see the DE error code, it means a "door error". This is a sign that either the door is not shutting, locking or opening. Most of the time, this is a simple fix and service is probably not needed. Check for something stuck or lodged in door. Check door gasket. Check door latch.

I have a LG topload intellowash WF-T7516LS as soon as i switch on the machine the water fills in and then it just shows dE pls help


dE stands for Door open Error. Your door is not closed properly or the door switch is not activated. Try to press the door firmly. If the error does not go then you will have to check the door latch, notch ( a protruding part which goes inside to latch & activate door switch) & the door switch for any damage. For Top load machines the notch is near the hinges & inside the machine.

  3. Press the Start/Pause button repeatedly with about 1 second interval until the lamps goes out.

The dE error means that the door switch has failed to "make" Either the door is not closed all the way, or the door switch needs to be replaced or adjusted.

LG INTELLOWASHER DD 7KG DOOR LOCK STAYS ON WAY TO LONG


Never heard of that; I would try a new door latch as I have never had a bad control issue with the operation of the door latch. There is no real way to test it. I can getb you the latch if interested. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Lg intellowasher DD 7.5kg WM14225FD error code OE


I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

You may need to have the door switch replaced but before that should be done, make sure the wire connector is securely in place.
