LG Dishwasher ie error code problem

I have the same problem and, like you, I cleaned the inlet screen with no results. Did you ever get your problem solved? What was the fix?

Remedy:

  • Cut power by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging power cable for ten minutes.

  • Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 )
  • Clean the filter of Inlet Valve.

Displaying code IE


Hi jakkirker,

The IE error you are seeing means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame - Please check the following:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Straighten it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

If all of these come back OK, and it still gives the same problem, I'd suggest replacing the inlet valve (Found on the opposite side of the inlet pipe - inside your Dishwasher), could also be a pressure switch (Found at the bottom of your Dishwasher - accessible from the bottom).

This should solve any problems.

Kind Regards :-)

My lg ld 1403w1 dishwasher fills with water and then error code I.E appears have bailed out water and tried it three times same result


Hi june1245,

I.E means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame (varies on model) - Make sure of the following first:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Un-kink it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

If all of these come back OK, and it still gives the same problem, I'd suggest replacing the inlet valve (Found on the opposite side of the inlet pipe - inside your Dishwasher), could also be a pressure switch (Found at the bottom of your Dishwasher - accessible from the bottom).

This should solve any problems.

LG LD2131SH Dishwasher displays a ie error


Hi santjiesfras,

The error code your receiving is an "Inlet Error" message. This means that no water is going into the Dishwasher. Please check the following:

1) Is the tap open.
2) Is the inlet hose kinked?
3) Is your water pressure fine? Because anything less than 0.3kgf/cm(bar) is not going to work

If all of the above is fine, then take off the inlet hose of the dishwasher, and clean the filter which is between the hose and machine (small circular filter). If still not working, then you will need to replace the inlet valve. I would suggest getting a L.G service agent to do so.

Good Luck :-) - J.Q

Hi I have an LG LD - 14AW23 dishwasher. It shows an IE error (no water) but it fills, stops and then gives the error message. What's thye problem? Many thanks, John


Hi


Error code IE on LG dishwasher means Inlet error. This error comes up when the Water Supply Tap is closed or Water Supply is shut off. If water supply is turned on then make sure that the Inlet Hose is not kinked and water Pressure is not low (should be above 10 psi). Next thing to check for is Water Inlet Valve, measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms) Make sure the filter of Inlet Valve is not clogged.

Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

P/No 3850DD 3006E MODEL LDF 681OST 23 7/8 X 33 7/8 609KW2HOO957 69LD 12 10 These are all the numbers on my dishwasher, approx 3-4 yrs old. suddenly started making a noise and stopped washing after...


1. Make certain the water supply valve is turned on. Check the inlet hose for any kinks or bends in the line that could prevent unit from filling properly. Check drain hose for proper installation. If water drains immediately, unit will display an IE Error Code.
2. Check the water supply valve and make certain that it is turned on and open fully or this code will display.
3. Check the inlet valve filter for buildup of mineral deposits. If the inlet valve filter is clogged it will restrict water flow is restricted into the dishwasher, resulting the IE Error. Clean filter with small brush to remove any accumulated mineral deposits that may have accumulated.
4. If inlet hose is kinked, water flow into the dishwasher, is restricted resulting the IE Error. Straighten any bends or kinks in the inlet hose. If the drain hose is not installed properly and the water drains out of unit, this could cause premature draining, which results in IE Error Code. In this case it will be necessary to reinstall the drain hose according the instructions in the installation guide.
5. If the water pressure is not 20 - 120 psi, water will not fill properly. This will result in IError Code. If water pressure is too low, it may be necessary to call for service.
6. During winter, parts of the dishwasher that are installed outside may freeze. Melt the frozen part by soaking a towel in warm water and wrapping it around the part. This should allow the dishwasher to operate.
7. If the unit is not leveled properly, the IE Error may occur. Use a level to check the sides and top of the unit. If the unit is not level, adjust the leveling feet in the front and back. Use the leveling kit packaged with the dishwasher. Check mounting brackets. If one is tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet.
* Note: To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench. Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the legs will help aid in proper leveling.

Lg LDS 5811st IE code


With an LG 5811 diswasher, when the IE error code is not caused by kinked hot water hose or blocked screen, the next step is to measure the electric resistance of the Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms)
