    Thank you for your reply, I have tried to place a magnet but it didn't work. I've also downloaded the user instruction book and check the code (dE) but nothing is odd.

    the user book says to check the following

    Is the water tap opened?

    Is the washer plugged in?

    Is the power cut off?

    Is the fuse all right?

    Is there enough water?

    Is the laundry spread out evenly

    in the washer?

    Is the washer set on a sturdy

    flat surface?

    Is the lid closed?

    any help??

    Based on your reply, I have discovered that the original magnet came undone from its place. I returned it to its correct location and i added a litttle wooden support behind it to make sure it makes contact when the lid is shut. Now it works fine and thank you so much for your help.
    You did save me heaps of money.

    I am a new user to FIXYA, I sent an e-mail regards my Samsung washing machine, and I got a reply within one hour. I followed the instruction and it turned out to be a very simple fix to the washing machine. (the lid magnet came undone). It would've cost me atleast AU$100 just to call someone to come and have a look at it. Worth the $6 that I spent towards FIXYA.
    I have called few friends and told them about your site.
    Thank you for providing such a service.

The lid is not closing properly to activate the lid reed switch or the switch is not working at all. You should hear the switch clicks when the lid is closed. You may place a strong magnet over the lid switch on the front right hand side of the lid opening to make sure the reed switch activates and make the washer work. The lid magnet is weak and needs to be replaced if the reed switch activates with the strong magnet.The reed switch needs replacing if it still doesn't activate with the strong magnet.

    The error code dE simply tells that the lid switch is not closed either due to the lid not closed properly or the switch itself is not working and nothing more except a faulty control board. Unplug the machine then use a putty knife and pry the top cover off to access the lid switch and check the wiring connections.

    Once accessed and after the connections are ensured okay, bypass the lid switch by taping together the wires or jumping a wire between them then plug the machine in and start it. The lid switch is indeed not working and needs to be replaced if the machine works with the switch bypassed. But if the machine still doesn't work with the switch bypassed and the error code dE still flashes, check the wire harness and make sure it is intact and the connections at the control is fully inserted. The control board is falsely sensing a signal and therefore faulty if the wire harness is intact and the error code still flashes.

I have a samsung triflow sw80asp. Water flow is down to a trickel with no explanation - no code come up and pressure has not changed. any ideas on what it is

your water inlet pipes usually have some sort of filter in the end that screws onto the tap / faucet. Turn the tap off, turn the machine on to relieve the pressure in the hose then turn it off again. Remove the hose from the tap and the filter and use something small to remove the filter and clean. Put it all back together and it should all work.

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.

Hi I have a Samsund Washing Machine SW65ASP2 triflow and i put a load on and it went find. Went to do another load and it came up with Code DE

DE is a door lock error it could be the door hasn't been shut firm enough or the door lock may have failed. Sometimes the pin that goes through the handle and ****** comes lose the door would have to be taken apart to check for that and in some rare cases the main module can be faulty.
