Try this one:
Unplug the washer.
Remove the bottom panel.
Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
Gently pull the tab down about 1/4" or until a click is heard.
You may have to replace the door switch assembly.
Hope that helps..........

The door latch may have gone bad

test it by pressing with some sharp object like pen

Posted on Jun 24, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 24, 2008

    does the error stop when u press the door latch with a sharp object like a PEN?

    and doing a hard reset must have removed the error.

    if the door is still not locking the new door latch is not the right one for ur machine i think.

    have a cross checks on that

Hi,

Unplug your machine, remove the top panel, doublecheck all of the wiring is securley connected. Sometimes the wiring becomes loose due to the machine's vibration.

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: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/lg-door-lock-switch-6601er1004c-ap4441836.html . 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.

44082 is the model #


he code "dr" means the control doesn't see the door switch being closed.This can mean the door catch is broken or the door is bent and not shutting all the way or clothes are preventing the door from shutting all the way but most likely it means the door lock assembly needs to be replaced.
Check the door strike is not broken and make sure the door is shutting evenly. If the door is shut fully and the "dr" error keeps occurring then replacing the lock assembly 131763245 will most likely fix this problem.
The switch can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . Remember to unplug the washer first before attempting to change the switch.
The image below contains the instructions to access and change the latch. Changing the latch is easy the tough part is putting the spring back on. Sometimes it helps to have two extra hands when trying to reinstall the wire/spring.
I hope this information helps you resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

LG Tromm washer constant DE door error problem


A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it. biigg53566

DE error code


That is a door switch error problem.  The door latch is not sensing the door closed.  You may need to replace the door latch assembly.
