Thanks for using FixYa. DE is a door open error, you’ll have to check the door if it’s properly closed. Also check loose electrical connections at the door switch and PWB assembly. If everything appears to be fine then it is the door switch assembly that should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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.

LG Washing Machine has DE Error code

<span><b>A DE Error Code is indicative of a "Door Error".

When the unit is paused, if it detects that the water in the unit is to warm, it will not unlock the door immediately (takes a minutes) This is a safety feature.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Is the door or gasket warped or damaged?</span><br /><br />If the door is warped, it will prevent the unit form latching or locking properly. This can result in DE error code. Also, if the gasket is damaged it could cause this problem as well. Make certain the latch on the door is not broken.

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: . 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.

Whats mean the de code ?

DE code is a Door Error code. Make sure the door is closing all the way, that no clothes are stuck under the glass causing the door to not close right, or you may have a door lock error.

De error code on LG washer. No clothes b?ocking....mechanism seems fine...unplugged for several minutes and tried again..still the de code. Suggestions>

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'dE' stands for 'door Error' indicating that there is a problem either with the lid/door lock or the lid/door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

DE code on WM0642HW TROMM washing machine We've been getting this error code on our washing machine for some time. The code is coming up quite frequently now. It stops the cycle so the load is not...

HI, this is a Door Open Error.

Possible Causes are..-

* Door not all the way closed
* Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Control Board)
* Door switch assembly is out of order(Miss aligned)
* Gasket on door may be creased in

Most common issue here will be a defective door lock switch. check all causes before replacing the switch.
