Happy Labor Day for everyone except me and the error code from the spawn of satan. Machine was working fine. The error code is still "dE" after replacing the door assembly switch.
If I try to run a cycle the drain pump turns (there is no water to drain) on after the displayed error code of dE. The problem started after I heard the drain pump struggling. So I then disassembled the pump to check working order and make sure there were no debris. Reassembled all parts and was getting the dE error. Thought the switch had gone bad so replaced it and still have the dE error. Is there a fuse or reset that might be the solution? I was considering replacing the water pump as the next step... Many thanks for any advice, William
I have tried everything the past few days to fix this. Here is my latest assessment the old door switch assembly (already replaced) looked burned out between two of the contacts. The wiring diagram for this machine looks as though it has a wired connection from the door switch to the drain pump and control panel. This might explain the drain pump coming on 10 sec. or so after the dE error code is displayed. If I hit pause after the code is displayed then the pump makes a strange struggling/pulsing sound? In conclusion is it possible the old door switch assembly shorted out and triggered a fuse or a surge to blowout the controller?
How can I repair this puppy because I have such limited funds at the moment....?
Many thanks for looking!
