I get an IE message -manual says Water inlet trouble. Says I should check clogging of water inlet hose. Only hose connection I can find is in the bottom front. Nothing clogged. Is there anywhere else to check? Water is still entering dishwasher. Stops after about 2 minutes.
Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working.
If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering.
firstname.lastname@example.org - replace "_dot_" with "." to email me.
I am haveing this same problem. The dishwasher starts and about 2 mins. into the cycle it stops with an IE Error Message. I installed it myself, so I know it was installed correctly to Manufacturers specs. I called LG and the guy told me that I needed to "reboot" it by flipping the breaker. That did not work, so LG is sending someone so look at it this week.

ERROR CODES; FAULTS & REMEDY
ERROR DISPLAY [IE] Inlet error. Condition: Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 min. water supply. Possible causes:
The Water Tap is not opened.
The Inlet Hose is twisted.
The Filter of inlet valve clogged by impure water.
The Inlet Water Valve is normal ?
The water pressure is very low. ( below 0.5 kgf/ )
Inlet valve is blocked by safety device for leakage sensing.(In case of Inlet Valve).
Open the Water Tap.
Repair the Inlet Hose.
1.Close the Water Tap. 2.Unscrew the Inlet Hose (Inlet Valve side) 3.Clean the Filter of Inlet Valve. > Replace or repair the Inlet Valve. > Check the water remain on the base. 1.Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts. 2.Disconnect the inlet hose to dishwasher to unlock the safety valve. ERROR DISPLAY [OE] Drain error. Condition: Not fully drained out in spite of 5 min. drain operation. Possible causes:
The Filter clogged.
The Drain Hose twistec or blocked.
The Drain Pump/Motor or circuit is troubled.
Clean the Filter.
Remove the cause of twist or block.
Replace the Drain Pump/Motor or repair the Circuit.
ERROR DISPLAY [E I ] Leakage error. Condition: The water level in Tub goes down during operation. Possible causes:
Water leakage in Hose connections.
Water is leaked by damages.
Impeller of the washing Pump is worn away.
The Thermal Protector of the washing motor is functioned
Replace the connections of Hose.
Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts.
Replace the washing pump.
Check the applied voltage.
ERROR DISPLAY [ F E ] Excess error. Condition: Excessive water is supplied than normal water level.(Automatically drain Pump operated.). Possible causes:
An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.
Are the water valves opened completely?
If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
Are the inlet hose filters clogged?
There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.
Are the inlet hoses attached properly?
If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.
1E Water inlet problem > Condition : Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 minute water supply. Water supply problem. The inlet hose is kinked. The water pressure is to low (10psi) Inlet valve. The inlet water valve filter is clogged. The hall sensor. The impeller of Air guide is bound. Remedy : Check resistance of inlet valve ( 950-1300ohms) Clean valve. Check pressure. Replace the Air braker.
OE Drain error > Condition: The drain hose kinked or blocked. Wiring connections. The drain outlet of sump is blocked. The drain pump/motor or circuit is troubled : Remove kink. Check wiring. Measure the resistance of drain motor (20-40ohms) Replace the drain motor or repair the circuit.
E1 Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened during wash cycle due to water leakage. Possible cause: Water leakage in hose connections,water is leaked by damages. The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of the washing pump is worn away.Replace the connections of hose. Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts. Correct drain connections. Replace the impeller of the washing pump.
FE Excess Error > Condition : Excessive water is supplied than normal water level (automatically drain pump operated. Possible cause: The inlet valve is troubled,or the controller.Possible cause: The inlet valve is troubled,or the controller. Replace valve or the controller.
BE (Thermal error) > Condition: the resistance of the thermistor not normally out put. Possible cause the inlet water temperature is very high(over 194°F) Wiring connections. Thermistor problem.Check temps to dishwasher 120°F needed. Check thermistor 11-14kohms at 77°F. Replace the PCB.
LE( Motor error ) > Condition : The motor is working abnormally. Possible cause : Wiring connections. The impeller of washing pump is locked. The rotor of washing motor is locked. The blade is locked.Correct wiring connections. Replace the cause of resrtiction. Replace the washing motor. Replace the PCB.
IE code ... This may help>>> check your water lines make sure the hot and cold water lines are on correctly they may be reversed... If you need to reset ,just simply unplug and hold the start/pause button for a few seconds... Hope this helps !
The IE or E1 error or fault code indicates 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
If you are trying to use the machine manually, there needs to be enough water in the machine to tell the level sensor when to switch off the water inlet solenoid valve. Failing this, the machine will only show IE (Inlet Error) and refuse to work.
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.
