Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'de' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

    Hello John, if the Solenoid is new, just replaced, and DE remains... where is the sensor that causes that?

  • john_cross May 07, 2011

    Hi Mark,
    Have you just replaced the solenoid or a service engineer, please? I would expect the sensor to be behind the actual door catch and 'testable' by operation by a small screwdriver poked through the catch aperture.
    Sorry if you are struggling- I should put 'the sensor' before 'the solenoid' in my notes but that is why I say either/or ;-0) I hope this helps.
    Cheers, John C

    I had to replace this relais because the metal contacts got overheated/plastic melted due to oxidation that caused a bad connection which eventually overheated. A common problem whith these locks as far as I know....

    Is there someway I can 'reset' the machine or force a 'door locked' sensor position?

  • john_cross May 07, 2011

    Sorry Mark, I do not know. Samsungs are not my best ;-0(
    Post you situation as a new thread stating that you had to change the relay/solenoid 'cos it was 'cooked' and that you still have the 'de' and someone should be able to help. Sorry again!

    Hi John, thx for your efforts! I've temporarily fixed it now. Just shorted the wires that form the sensor part of the doorlock. We don't have any kids around that'll open the door whilst it's running ;-)... Obviously somthing is wrong with the electronics that tell the doorlock to go into lockposition...

I just purchased a slightly used HP m9340f Pavilion Media Center PC. It won't boot up... it just beeps. Nothing shows on the monitor.

The beeps normally are a code which tells you what problem has been detected and is keeping the computer from starting. You can find information about interpreting the beep codes and what to at HP's site here. The most common causes of beeps and no start is bad memory or video. I'd suggest making sure the memory modules are firmly seated in their sockets. It's possible that poor connections are keeping the memory from being properly detected.

Error code de

hi, i've got the same problem. But when i leave it for a minute or two with the beeping, it will automaticaly start its washing program. Without opening and closing the door. We probelbley need a new door sensor. I've seen them on the internet for $100. But as long it's washing like it does now. I'am leaving it like it is.
