dE Error Code - Front Load Washer

  • Troubleshooting

A dE error code indicates that the washer door was unable to lock. This can normally be resolved by performing a simple reset on the washing machine.

How to reset the washing machine:

  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off.

  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet or turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.

  3. With the power disabled, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.

  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.

  5. For more information about how to reset your specific model, please refer to the owner's manual. Visit our Documents and Manuals page to download a copy of your owners manual.

Press in on the door firmly and select any cycle. The washer door should lock, and the cycle should begin without an error code appearing on the display. If the cycle does not begin and the dE code appears again, repair service is required. Please visit our Request a Repair page for a professional service.
