IE is inlet error, displayed when "Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 min. water supply"

Possible cause:

  • The Water Supply Tap is closed.
  • The Water Supply is shut off.
  • The Inlet Hose is kinked.
  • The Water Pressure is very low.(below 10 psi)
  • Inlet Valve is OK?
  • The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged by impure water.
  • The Hall sensor is OK?
  • The Impeller of Air Guide is bound.
Remedy:

  • Cut power by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging power cable for ten minutes.
  • Take action on Water Supply device.
  • Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 )
  • Clean the filter of Inlet Valve.

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code


Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

So frustrated - LG dishwasher washes 5 minutes then shows OE code - have cleaned drains, sump pump, out let pipes. Still doing it. ONly 9 months old..... My old dishwasher worked for 10 years.......


Hi there Diane OE on your display relates to the water draining system (water is not pumped away). the diashwasher is not seeing the water drain away. Dishwashers start by draining before they take on fresh water. Start your dishwasher and listen for a pumping noise from the waste pump if you dont hear any noise it may be the pump is blocked or faulty. please advise if this helps kind regards gary.

Water wants to drain and keeps trying


Sounds like anti flood system has triggered (polystireen float and micro switch) that puts the washer in pump out mode only and shuts the inlet water off. You need to look at the bottom of the washer and check that water leak / spill is not causing the float to activate. Clear the water and fix leak (pipe or pipe clamp) and this should fix the problem.

Drain pump keeps running and F2 error


This is caused by the "anti flood" system being activated. Consists of a polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer. Once water leaks / spills are detected it activates and puts the washer in pump out mode only. You need to dry the base / check for leaks / rectify leaks (normaly a small hole in pipe or pipe clamp).

Hi, I have an aeg 60870 dishwasher showing error code 30 and the pump is going all the time, even when you open the door, any suggestions of things i could try please?


Sounds like the Anti-Flood system activated (polystireen float at base of machiene coupled to a micro switch) the purpose of this system is to put the drain pump on and stops any other function on the machiene. The anti lood system activates when any amount of water appears on the bottom (caused by leaky pipe / blokked pipes / spills etc.) . Dry the water and rectify the leak. This should solve the problem.

My lg dishwasher is giving an IE error msg.


Recommend that you follow the drain hose back from the drain to the dishwasher. Are you connected to a Sink-based Disposal or direct-connect to the drain?
The problem really can be that the drain hose has fallen and it never rises at least 30 inches above the floor that the dishwasher is sitting on. That causes a natural syphon effect, which drains the DW constantly, causing the dishwasher to believe it is leaking (which it is, through the drain hose.
Either install an AirGap valve and then properly connect it to the disposal or tie the hose up to the bottom of the counter to there is a rise between the DW and the drain.

Good Luck!

Lg dishwasher stops throughout the full cycle


If you are still having problems with your LG dishwasher, turn off the hot water supply to the dishwasher and remove the hot water inlet pipe (remove the lower, front panel (toe kick plate) )
Check the screen/filter at the water inlet on the dishwasher.
Reconnect the pipe and turn the hot water supply back on.
Test out and enjoy!
