Unplug the machine.
Plug back in (maybe 10 seconds later).
Mine had several dE messages. Unpluged, waited 10 seconds, when pluged back in, it remembered which cycle and parameters I had it on, then locked the door and continued with no problem.

it sounds like the lid switch is going out if you lift the top of the washer you will see it in there this is a safety feature for homes with small children if your kids are all grown and gone you can connect the two wires going to that switch to bypass it otherwise any appliance parts store will have these switches in stock they are usually around $15

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
Just as you raise or close the lid you should hear an audible click from the lid switch. It will be faint but audible. If you do not hear a click then there is a problem with the lid switch. See item 18 this link:
1. Unplug the washer.
You gain access to the lid switch by removing the 2 screws in the lower front panel then pull the bottom of the front panel toward you / outward then off. After that you will remove the 2 bolts (Item 20 of link above) and tip the top straight up from the front. The lid switch will be in the center of the back of the lid area inside the top panel.
If there is water in the unit select SPIN on the timer.
You can remove the 2 wires from the lid switch and jumper them together to see if the machine works. If it works the lid switch is bad.
Reassemble in reverse order....
If you still have problems after trying this just respond here and I will get back to you asap.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-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!

The problem is obviously the lid switch which now have got broken totally The only viable solution then is replacing the lid switch. Unplug the machine or disconnect power then release the console from the top of the cabinet by removing the screws securing the rear of the console. Pull forward and up on the
console and lay it back on the hinges.
Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.
The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.
Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.
Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and lay the front on a cushioned floor to access the lid switch.
Remove the lid switch ground and mounting screws then release the wire harness from the metal retainers. Pull the lid switch connector out and install the new lid switch in reverse order of the removal steps.
Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine. Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.
Please accept the solution should you find it helpful and/or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from posting comments or additional information. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.
