have you checked the motor there is a n over load resistor in the motor for when it over heats then the motor will not run if it has blown you will need a new motor as it cannot be changed, check it with a meter there should be resistance in the motor if its open then it has blown.

My lidlock is broke, is there any way to bypass that so washer will work?

The locking lid mechanism is malfunctioning. It clicks three or four times then the letters FL are displayed.

this is what I suggest to you.

good luck to you.

I have a Oasis, model 110 270 826 02, serial #CT3270410, that I just had the touch pad ERC control part (8564392) replaced last week. Today when I went to use it, the DU comes up on the control panel...

The DU error code indicates that the control detects a problem with the washer door (lid) unlocking. In this situation, the failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. I provided technical information on this failure in the first image below. You can use this information if necessary to verify a failed lid lock assembly. The control is apparently sending the voltage to the lid lock mechanism to unlock the door but is not sensing that the lid is unlocked. There is a chance that you have a wiring failure or a bad control board so it is best to thoroughly diagnose the failure if possible before replacing components. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. If you determine that you have a failed lid lock assembly, you can use the procedure shown in the second image below to replace this component.

LE message, will not lock the door - Daewoo front load

Hello there:
This is a fairly common problem with these newer machines Here are the 2 most common fault codes on these machines I have listed below this post.
If the machine is still under warranty i would suggest using it normally they will repair this for free
and some of these have a recall on these machines
so i would contact the appliance center where you got this from and see if you can get it repaired ok?

"LE " persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace switch, linkage, lock solenoid or control board. 1E persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace lid lock switch or control board.


The 1E error codes relates to a lid lock failure. You should replace the lid lock switch. Good luck!
