Does the LG Ld1452WFEN2 dishwasher need a pressure reducer on the inlet hose or is it incorporated in the hose

New dishwasher requires .6mpa max inlet pressure. Washer is on tank water with 15BAR pump fitted and occassionally on mains pressure when tank is low.

SOURCE: IE error message

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. conrad_dot_dewet@gmail.com - replace "_dot_" with "." to email me.

SOURCE: LG LD-14AW3 Dishwasher leaking after cycle

Sounds like you've diagnosed the solution on your own.. Most of the inlet valves are spring loaded so that if power is removed or disabled.. it defaults to a closed state and doesn't allow water int the wash basin. To open, they need to be energized by the control system so you may have one of two issues.. a faulty inlet valve that doesn't spring closed when it is not energized or a controller that is comanding that valve to open ( less likely of the two) For a quick test.. make sure the DW is dry inside and open the door. wait and watch for water to enter the basin.. If it does begin to fill up.. your inlet valve could be the root of your problem.. It is also possible that you are back-siphoning waste water in from the drain system. If the water looks dirty then that is more than likely the problem so you may have a clogged pump, kinked drain hose or your drain system itself is not draining as fast as the DW pump forces the water out.
You should routinely clean the pump filter so that the pump can remove all the wash water without having to draw it thru food debris caught in the filter.. Hope someof these ideas will help you solve your problem..

SOURCE: IE input error on LG dishwasher Model LDF6810ST

Chris;
The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.
Thanks, Carl.

SOURCE: E1 error on LG dishwasher

As per my email reply chazmano5, the problem is likely to be the water pump/motor assy.

They have a very common fault of the impeller breaking on the motor shaft. The motor still spins, but the impeller doesn't, so there is no water being pumped.

The machine senses there is no water pressure and shuts down, displaying E1 (eg: it thinks no water pressure means there must be a water leak) Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher LDS5811ST 1E error code

I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.

My bosch wfl 2400 does not wash, it starts by letting a bit of water come in, then stops. I can drain the water out, ok. But nothing more


Have you tried altering the inlet water pressure? Where the water inlet hose of the machine is attached to the water supply of the house, do you have an isolating valve. If so then shut it part way off to reduce the water pressure entering the machine. If it is already set at a reduced input, then open it to see if that helps. You may need to try several different settings, so be patient.
If altering the water inlet pressures does not work and you are still having the same problems then the machine will require an expert to fix it. It could be a program error and requires a new circuit board or the water inlet sensor may be faulty. Hope that is of some help and good luck.

Dishwasher will not fill with water


depending on the make and model of dishwasher the solution can vary. A good guess (assuming the inlet hose is connected and tap is turned on), is the water pressure setting may not be matching with your normal mains pressure. Check installation instructions for setting mains water pressure. Also some dishwashers like Bosch have special inlet hoses which detect water leakage and shut of the water inlet valve. Need to check if your dishwasher has got this feature and need to confirm the hose is correctly fitted.
More importantly check when you turn wash cycle on if you hear click of the inlet valve or not.

Model LD 12AW2 not drawing water displaying 1E error


Hi afarugia,

The IE error you are seeing means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame - Please check the following:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Straighten it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

If all of these come back OK, and it still gives the same problem, I'd suggest replacing the inlet valve (Found on the opposite side of the inlet pipe - inside your Dishwasher), could also be a pressure switch (Found at the bottom of your Dishwasher - accessible from the bottom).

This should solve any problems.

Kind Regards :-)

Hi june1245,

I.E means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame (varies on model) - Make sure of the following first:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Un-kink it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

LG LD2131SH Dishwasher displays a ie error


Hi santjiesfras,

The error code your receiving is an "Inlet Error" message. This means that no water is going into the Dishwasher. Please check the following:

1) Is the tap open.
2) Is the inlet hose kinked?
3) Is your water pressure fine? Because anything less than 0.3kgf/cm(bar) is not going to work

If all of the above is fine, then take off the inlet hose of the dishwasher, and clean the filter which is between the hose and machine (small circular filter). If still not working, then you will need to replace the inlet valve. I would suggest getting a L.G service agent to do so.

Good Luck :-) - J.Q

Had a similiar problem I tried reducing water pressure from water inlet (external to dishwasher) and this worked to a certain degree, although may result in being unable to fill, if you turn down too far. Water silencer (try plumbing stores) was fitted between mains and dishwasher and this fixed the problem.<!-- from fixya rte -->

The first thing you might want to do is check the water pressure in the house. Ideal water pressure should be from 55psi to 75psi max. I have seen homes that had pressure around 125 psi which will cause pressure leaks in water heaters, softners, washer valves, r/o systems. Check to see that all, if any inlet screens are clear and free from any grit and sand. It's possible that your inlet water valve (wd10m0010) has become restricted. Other than that, the complete uncoupler hose assy. part number is wd24m0030. These parts are for the dishwasher model ending in gsc3400j00bb. They are the same for model number ending in 00ww. Good luck.
