SOURCE: LG WM-2277HW Water overflowing from soap drawer (compartment)

The water dispenser compartment is connected to a hose. Disconnect the hose where it attaches to the tub. You will find a gray mushroom valve, remove this completely or you can just cut back the rubber that covers the stem halve way. What is happening is the valve is getting stuck in the up postion, and causing the water to poor out the front. You should also be running a hot wash every so often to clean out the unit.

SOURCE: cloged inlet filter

You can also buy new filters to replace the old inlet filters from Home Depot. They are not LG brand they are "generic" filters but they do work. LG does not supply these filters the only way to get them from LG is to purchase the entire inlet valve (keep in mind you have 2 hot and cold) to obtain these filters. You can call the parts dept 888-393-6484 and get the part numbers for these valves and a distributors phone number so you can purchase the valves from them. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

SOURCE: Haier XQB55-10 : water leakage from inlet hose jointer

Inside the connector is a flat washer and a mesh filter. one side of the mesh filter has a strip/bar across it, this filter goes into the base of the connector with the strip/bar upwards, make sure it is seated in the connector properly.

Then fit the flat washer ensuring that it is clean/undamaged and lying flat at the base of the connector, the mesh filter strip/bar has at either end a small lip, the washer goes underneath the two lips, if it is placed on top of these lips it leaks!

99% positive on this, if not buy another hose!

IE error on wd1484adp


LG's 'IE' stands for '(water) Inlet Error'.

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB

The machine is indicating an IE fault


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes. 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. 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 wm_inlet_filter_removal(1).jpg

LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle


IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.
