IE error code, machine keeps on draining

My LG top loader (WTF1391TP) keeps on draining while pumping in new water. After which it gives me an IE error. OK so an IE error means that theres no water, but why does the machine keeps on draining itself?

It sounds like the flood switch in the bottom of the washer is activated. check for water in the base as the machine if maybe leaking. This is a Dishwasher?

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.

I have an lg front loader washing machine...it keeps stopping mid cycle and gives a troubleshoot code of oe...i cant find my owners manual and the lg site is awful....can you help me?


OE is drain error..Most likely problem is partially blocked pump filter...This is accessed via the small door at floor level...Unscrew the pump cover and clear the filter..Any water in the machine will flow from the pump cover...Empty the machine first...Leaning it back can help....Good luck....Nomess

My lg front loader steam washer is not draining water, error code OE. has pump gone out?


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

LG WM-2032HW front loader washer gives error goes OE and IE


"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.

The manual suggests to shut the water off ,
remove the inlet hose and check the screen for blockage.
The ie message is the inlet water is insufficient.
