If you are getting the IE fault code or error code from your LG washing machine

If you are getting the IE fault code or error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know why you are getting that code and what do you need to do to fix the problem.

You get this code if you have a LED model

You get this code if you have and LCD model

This error code is caused when the washing machine does not fill up with water in about eight minutes. The washing machine gives its self eight minutes to reach the right water level. If there is a problem that keeps the water from entering fast enough the machine will shut down and give the IE error or fault code.

The most likely problem that will cause this fault or error code is that the water hose screens are plugged with dirt and debris. Most all washing machines have some type of water filter in the hoses or in the machine at the entering point for the water. Dirt and debris will build up in these filters till in restricts the water flow enough to cause this problem.

The other cause for this error is if you happen to reverse the hoses. If the cold water hose is on the hot side and the hot is on the cold side it can also cause to alarm. If the filters look clean then check the location of the hoses and make sure that they are properly connected.

Check that the water valves where the hoses connect to the domestic water supply are on completely. Some valves are difficult to tell if they are completely on or not.

If you need to reset your washing machine fault or error codes you can do this by unplugging the machine and then holding the start/pause button for five seconds. Then plug the machine back in and the code should be removed.

LG Washing Machine IE Error Code

I bought and installed a new 3 valve cold water valve for my W2277HB. Initially it worked, but water stopped again shortly after installation of the new valve. Turns out that the real culprit was the high pressure of the water coming in from the faucet. Turning down the pressure allowed the water to flow. With the pressure on high, I can hear the valve vibrating but no water flows through. Seems like my original valve is actually still in good shape. I'll be keeping it as a spare...

what fault code ie

The IE or water inlet error or fault code is to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

LG has general error codes for all there appliances and the "ie" error code is for the water supply. You either have a kink in your hose, water vavle shut off, or the bad problem your pump is bad.
