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?

IE error code. Any more ideas??


Hello Pete Glover,

According to LG lots of similar problems...

Too much water pressure won't do that... Just the opposite.

LG says you have a water flow issue, kinked line... valve mostly closed... or possibly frozen lines or heavy usage ...

Simply NOT getting sufficient water in to meet cycle requirements

(Mine was caused by a broken water line in our green-house
hogging all the available water pressure (had a full on swamp going and didn't know it)).

Happy hunting

Error meaasage 0E Drain Error what to do?


This OE error or fault code indicates that the machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

LG dishwasher, it pumps out ok on start up in any program, but gives an OE error


The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to allow water to enter the dishwasher. Depending on the model, the valve stays open either for a set length of time or until the dishwasher has enough water. However, if the water inlet valve doesn't shut off after the dishwasher has enough water, the dishwasher will overflow. If water drips into the dishwasher when the door is open, or if water collects at the bottom of the dishwasher while it is not use, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.

My LG dishwasher when I turn it on it drains the water, then it fills it up with water, about 1 min. later gives me the code E1 and drains the water again...


LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1 LDF7810BB/01 LEAKAGE ERROR // Excessive pump motor RPM due to water leakage
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that when the drain pump is running it is not experiencing the back pressure it expects. This is usually an indication that there is a water leak in the drain system. Check all hoses and connections. Check under the dishwasher for any major leak. If all checks out, be certain there is a proper loop in the drain hose to prevent siphoning. Finally, if the problem persists, the drain pump itself might be defective.

Why does my LG ( LD12AT7 )dishwasher still give me an IE error code after I replaced the inlet valve?


When this happened to my 12 year old dishwasher, I take out the filter at the base of washer, and using a cup, drain excess water. Add the cheapest VINEGAR to the base, screw the filter back in. Wait a few hours for the vinegar to do its magic, hey presto! the machine works again. I'm ready to buy another, newer model, but this trick works everytime! Sometimes, I don't even empty all that fluid out, but just add that Vinegar. Hope this solves your problem too. Havagreatday!

Keep getting E! error message. How do I reset on board computer?


The E1 error code on LG dishwashers indicates a water leakage problem on the machine.
Typically the water seal on the washing/drain pump has deteriorated and allowed water into the pump motor which causes internal damage to the bearing and impeller. Damaged parts or pump needs replacing.

My LG direct drive dishwasher is giving me an IE or 13 error


Hi, according to the owner's manual on mine, "IE ERROR" means it's a 'water input error'. You have to check for a kink or clog to the water hose running to your machine. Once you unclog the water hose, you error code will disappear.

E1 error code on my kenwood dishwasher [kwd243a


Hi
The E1error code indicates a water inlet error.
To access test mode: press and hold Normal+Eco, and press Power. Release buttons. Then press Start(display n:01).Press Start again (display shows water level frequency-not important). Press Start again-(display n:03-motor will be running). Press Start again (display n:04-drain pump will run). Press Start again (display n:05-inlet valve will come on and machine should fill with water). You have now tested major components are working-if you keep pressing start you will scroll thru and test other functions, like heater, dispensor etc, but not needed for your fault.
If Machine didn't fill with water in test mode, you probably have a faulty inlet valve (test resistence should be approx 3.7-4 k ohm).
If inlet valve has tested OK ie machine filled with water in test mode then:
Disconnect from power.
Remove side panels (need to remove top, and bottom front panel to then be able to remove sides)
- Check no water in base of machine-water in base will indicate machine has leaked and activated the safety device which shuts off inlet valve.
- If OK, you probably have a faulty flow meter(measures water intake). Located left hand side of machine, large plastic compartment, which has a sensor at the bottom with 3 wires (red,white,black) that go up to control board. Replace entire flow meter assy-relatively inexpensive part.
- If you still have problem, then control board is faulty, it is much more likely to be flow meter .

E1 Error code - no leaks - new pump - new pc board in Dec. 09


The most common reason for an E1 error on an LD dishwasher (that does not have a leak, including directly under the dishwasher) is the drain hose between the dishwasher and the drain does not have a rise in it between the DW and the drain. Either install a proper AirGar valve or attach the hose to the bottom of the counter top so that it raises 30" between the DW and the drain. When that raise does not exist, the laws of physics tell you that you WILL have a siphoning effect from the DW into the drain, causing the LG to report error code "E1", which is true because of the water leaving the DW during all the wash and drain cycles.
Good Luck!

ok. our machine has done this for 6 months or so, it was ok for the 1st 6 months. i have checked and cleaned and unblocked and gone bloody crazy. today i found the fault and fixed quickly.

the installer stuffed up. the waster water hose must head up and be fixed just under your bench top, then come down hill to your exit/spiggot/drain attachment.

ours was just lying more or less at floor level coming up to the spiggot. so whenever the waste water pump switched off, water would run back into the machine, hence the OE error, and also dirty water with food would then get chucked around it what should have been a clean rinse.

a diagram of the waste water house and how it should be done is in the manual.

i just about blew $1500 on a new machine !!
