The door is either not closed or the microswitch that tells the machine it is closed is broken.

The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

Hi.

Small d and E means door error. Big DE is drain error.

Hi.

To start be sure that it is small dE , like this:

If it is a big D, then it is drain error, like the one below:

ginko_259.gif
Washers have a door lock with micro-switch or a door lock motor, depending on the model.

If there is a door switch, this can be tested either reading Ohms or jumping its contacts. When the switch has three contacts instead of two the third contact is an 'heater' (impedance). With door closed the two (or tree) door switch contacts must show continuity, which means that if you read impedance using a multimeter the impedance will not be Ohm infinity (circuit open).

If there is a door motor and no switch the motor is tested reading Ohms and verifying that they correspond to the value in specifications.
If it is door error check the connector to the switch or the
(usually VIOLET(VL) 2 PIN on LG) connector to the power board. Disconnect power first and read impedance to check if there is contact.

Regards.

When i try to start the washer code d5 shows ands chimes


Hi


The reason for d5 error is due to defective door lock switch. It is a door lock error code, more than likely a bad door latch it's an easy repair. When washer displays this code it means door is open while washer is running. Check the lid switch and striker.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

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.
