Ok found the filter in the front of machine, lower left hand corner. It was clean. Proceeded to remove front panel. But first turn of the power and I also turned of the water. Now I found that the wires from the wiring harness had imbedded themselves in the sound profing material. Its like a black thick tar. I guess during the drying cycle the tar heats up and the wires settle into the goo. As the door is opened and closed the wires are put under stress because they are now one with the door. I found a blue wire had broken. I soldered the wire and taped it. I also put waxed paper behind the wires to keep them from hooking up to the tar again. I will check that fix after a couple of months to see how the paper is faring. The machine works perfectly once again.

What does lf code mean?


There is only a IE or 1E error code which 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.

What is the error of 1E


An IE error code signifies that the washing machine is filling with water slowly or not at all. This can occur when water supply taps are not fully open or the water pressure to the tap or house is too low. Other possible causes are kinked, pinched or bent water line hoses, or clogged water inlet filters.
TIP Make sure the water taps are fully open.
Make sure the hoses are not kinked or pinched. (Use caution when moving the washer.)
Clean the inlet filters.
Check another faucet in the house to make sure your household water pressure is adequate

I have a LG dishwasher that exhibits occasional groaning, 1E error and poor cleaning. Sometime it works fine but lately it's getting more common.


Since you have replaced the water inlet valve and still have the 1E error code, this leads me to believe that your water pressure could be too low.
1E error code means that your machine is not filling with enough water to operate correctly, so check the supply system completely and also the filters where the supply hose enters the machine.
The poor cleaning could be food clogging the lower filter screen, the groaning is the circulation pump cavitating.

It's showing an error message, 1E?

This is the electrically operated valve that allows water into the machine when required.

Are you sure it's 1E and not LE error code??  The symptoms you mentioned indicates that it is an LE error code and the motor has an issue.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to diagnose and resolve the problem.
