It indicates a leak has activated the flood protection device in the base. Lean the machine forward (or backward) & see if water runs out of the base. If it does you may be able to restart...but the source of the leak will need to be identified & fixed. I think it would be wise to remove the lid & check if the inlet valve has popped first.

Our LG washing machine had an AE error because we put in too much washing powder and water overflowed. We unscrewed the back panel and soaked up the water on the bottom of the machine with a dry cloth. Cloth has to be wrung and soaked a few times to get rid of all the water in the machine. Really easy considering we arent the most handy people. Lesson to learn is to use front loader washing detergent and not to overdo the amount of detergent. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: what is the AE error code on LG steam direct drive washing machin

the AE code means that there is water in the base I found that the steam heater element in mine was leaking so after a quick repair using silicon and a good clean after drying the water out of the base it now works again

PS I used to be a washing machine repair engineer! I wouldn't suggest that you start opening up your washing machine!!!!

My dishwasher error code is AE what does it mean? I have tried to reset it but it still says that


If this is a LG dishwasher ... then the AE code means there is a leak somewhere underneath. On some models there is a small catch pan underneath that over time may accumulate some water which trips a sensor in the catch pan ... resulting in the AE code.
If that is your problem ... then resetting will not solve the problem since the water has not gone away. You need to take the front toe plate off and remove the water from the catch pan ... usually a paper towel can which it up as shown in the attached link.

AE Error LG Dishwasher LDF5545

You should also check all connections for leaks since over time the catch pan may fill again. Use a dry paper towel and touch all the connections ... if it becomes damp then you have a leak. (It is hard to just visually inspect for leaks)
Helpful?
Good luck on your troubleshooting!

LG washer WD1457RD looses time or jumps down a minut or so during cycle then stops before finish. What could be wrong ?


This is related to fault on the board, it can be the processor or the memory , check for moisture or faulty connectors from the board.
You can reset all connections and try to dry the board before the board can be suspected.

Are you sure it's says AE for the error code.  LG doesn't list that particular error code.  Please check again.

sometimes you just have to force the door but first try hitting the machine near the door lock sometimes this helps the door interlock may be stuck in the closed position
