UE Error Code for LG Washing Machines

If you are getting a UE error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know what is causing this code. This UE error code is caused when there is an unbalanced load condition sensed by the washing machine. There are a few things that can cause this and ways to correct it.

If you are doing a load of wash that is too small, this can allow all of the wash to be on one side of the drum. Single heavier items will not work well and will cause this error when spinning. Very light single items may work, but for heavier items you will need to add more to the load to get it to work properly.

If you have a load of heavier items like blankets, and sheets, you may have to stop the machine and spread them around the drum evenly before it will spin properly. Even jeans, shirts, and pillow cases can sometimes all end up on one side of the drum and cause it to become unbalanced. After spreading the items around the drum evenly, try to restart the spin cycle.

If you hear your washing machine slowing down and tumbling a few times when trying to spin, it may be that you machine has a option on it that tries to redistribute the load on its own if it senses an unbalanced load. The machine will try this a couple of times before it will stop and give you an error code.

If you need to reset the code at any time you can do this by unplugging the washing machine and then holding in the start/pause button for 5 seconds. Plug the washer back in and the code should be clear.

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

My 7kg LG front loader WD-80134T showed a UE error. Please can you tell me what this means and where can I get the manuel?


This is an imbalance error code. Too small of a load will cause this error code.
-Check and rebalance the load
-Make sure Washing Machine is level
-Redistribute the load evenly

i am getting alert of UE for fully automaticatic washing manchine


According to Lg Ue error code is an unbalanced load error code or uneven load error code you can also click this link from the LG site which describes some ways to alleviate the problem of the UE error code http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=800. I have also found that if these ways do not remove the problem you may have to open the unit and check the damper struts that attach to the tub assembly. If one of these struts were not to be attached or have broken, or came away from the tub assembly this would also cause the UE error code as well with the unit. Also if you remove the rear panel you will see the stator which is basicly the motor as well as an rps sensor which helps the stator to rotate. I also have found that in some cases the center bolt that holds the stator in place sometimes unloosens and unscrews as well also causing this UE error code. So you would first try the methods that LG has listed in order to alleviate the UE error code and if there methods did not work then you would first look at the stator center screw to assure that it is tightened and in place. And secondly if the stator screw were in proper place and tight then you would look at the damper struts in the unit lastly. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks

LG wash machin have error code "EU"


There is no such error code. The closest error code would be UE which means that it's a unbalanced load error. If you have a light load, or you are washing a large bedsheet or bedspread, that will cause it to not spin properly because the machine cannot balance the load. The best thing I can recommend is adding about 4 to 5 large bath towels so the weight can be distributed more evenly.
Good luck
