    Thank you for your assistance.I have found the source of the problem. The door was assembled incorrectly at manufacture so that depressing the handle forced the plastic clip of the door handle mechanism to force the lever aft, thus unlocking it. However the excess force required each time to open the door caused the plasic clip to break.Hence the lever was no longer pulled to the rear. A new handle has been ordered for a cost of £10 and can be easily fixed with the removal the door(4 screws). Once i have the new handle the whole job will take less than 20 mins to sort.

Lg intellowasher wd1074fb


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.

The door is jammed on my LG Intellowasher WD-1023C-Washing Machine - Front loader. It has finished it's wash cycle, but the door won't open


Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

THE DE ERROR CAME ON MY WASHER WHAT DO I DO/


Hi,
A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening

If happening in mid cycle power of the unit and remove the power cord and wait for 5 mins.Then plug it. Check whether the door opens if not you require the service people


Check anything is caught on the washer door.


If you passed it they door may not open if the inside water is warm.It is a safety feature.It unlock after sometime


Thank You

My Electrolux ewf1090 front loader door wont open


Turn the power off and leave for 5-10 minutes then turn on. This should release the door lock the problem could be the pump drain filter is blocked clean this and it should resolve future problems.

Hello. I have an LG intellowasher front loader wd-8015c which has finished its cycle but the door will not open.... how can I get it to manually open? I have tried doing another rinse cycle and pumped out...


If you've waited the normal time for the interlock to allow the door to open and it's still locked, the interlock switch itself is probably faulty. Tricky job. Best to find a repair technician........Nomess

Lg wd-8013, all lights on at end of cycle door wont open


It sounds like you have a faulty interlock. This is what locks the door during the wash cycle.Sometimes they won't unlock and need to be replaced. There may be a pull tab inside the pump access area at floor level to get door open....Not a big job for a tech......Nomess

My LG intellowasher DD WM1480 FDH washer displays DE (door open) and refuses to start, if I repeatedly open and close door sometimes it will start or the door will lock and it still doesnt start.


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.
