LG front loader - shower water filling up machine

For some reason my LG front loader has been filling up with water from our shower, bath tub, or sink. Instead of the water from the tubs draining out of the house, it seems to be filling up the washing machine. Shouldn't the machine have some type of valve to prevent this?

Your drain should have a backflow device in it. This can be very dangerous, you need a professional plumber ASAP.

Lg top loader ie error message, fills ok, but water running out of bottom of machine


Hi IE means Inlet Error. The machine thinks that it is not filling (as a certain time has passed without reaching level it wants).
This makes sense if water is running out the bottom.
You will need to find the leak. Maybe the tub to pump hose, or the drain pump itself. Once you stop the leak and the machine can fill in the correct amount of time, you shouldnt see the IE error any longer.

My LG front loader is showing an "FE" error. The water seems to continue running into the tub, leaking out the door.


Good morning

I looked this up to make sure I was thinking the right way. The FE means there is too much water in the machine... lol bet you already knew that. Since water is actually coming out of the machine it looks like a bad fill valve. The plastic piece your hot and cold water lines hook into is not shutting off all the way.

I hope this helps

The device which directs the water up or down is called the diverter. Your diverter is not fully up or fully down. Rather forcefully push and pull the diverter a few times and your problem may be solved. good luck.

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.

Water comes up into our tub when washer drains


The washer puts out a lot of water when spinning/ draining, sounds like the house drains are not of sufficient size or possibly blocked causing water to backup into your tub, check house drains for blockage or install seperate drain for washer into main drain that your tub goes into.
