HOW DO I STARTS MY WASHING MACHINE AGAIN CAUSE IT ALWAYS `IE` ERROR EVEN I ALREADY CLEAN THE FILTER,CHECK HOSE,THIS ERROR HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE USE IT MANUAL WHEN NO WATER IN SERVICE,I MEAN HE MANUALLY


The IE or E1 error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve
If you are trying to use the machine manually, there needs to be enough water in the machine to tell the level sensor when to switch off the water inlet solenoid valve. Failing this, the machine will only show IE (Inlet Error) and refuse to work.

The washer stops in the middle of the cycle and says IE.


The IE error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged and by removing the inlet hose from the machine, check that the inlet filters are clean. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

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.

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.

IE = Inlet Error. if the water level has not been reached in a certain amount of time, you will get an IE code. Most likely cause is clogged inlet water screen, inside the threaded end where the hose attaches to the machine. Other possiblities are valve shut off, kinked hose, open water inlet valve solenoid coil.

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.

Greetings julie312,

The "IE" message can mean that water is not entering your dispenser. If you have traces of lime in your water or very hard water, your water inlet hose can become clogged quite easily. To clean this please do the following:

Turn off the inlet water tap.
Unscrew the water inlet hose.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Replace filter and hose, tighten water inlet hose.

Your water inlet hose is found on the back of your machine. It is recommended to clean this every few months.

You can also find a link to your manual by following http://us.lge.com/products/model/detail/home%20appliances_laundry_washers_WM2277H___yes.jhtml

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy
