LG 9.5kg Washer Error IE

I have the LG inverter direct drive 9.5kg WTH950 washer and as it fills it is also draining the water at the same time. Once the fill cycle is complete there is no water in the tub and the error IE appears. Looking at the manual this error refers to Water Supply failure however this doesn't seem to be the case. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: water keeps filling in washer

Sounds like you need a new water valve (some debris inside the valve causing it to not fully close). These are availible from your local appliance parts store or on line from the manufacture. Once you have your replacement, just take the #20 torx screws out of the rear of the top panel slide the whole panel slightly towards the rear and lift it off. On the outside of the washer on the back panel, You should a light blue plastic thing that the 2 matching hoses from your house connect to. Turn your water off and remove these hoses. Just beside them you will find another #20 torx bit screw (some models use a #10 or #15). Remove this screw as well. Now from the inside of the machine, you will see 4 blue wires going into 2 connectors on the valve. Remove these connectors only by pulling on the connectors, not the wires. Lastly you will see a small black hose with a green or silver clamp on it. Squeeze the clamp with a pair of pliers and then slide it down the hose. The hose should now pull free of your old valve.
Please remember to rate this information if it was helpful to you. Best of luck and drop me a note if you have any troubles.

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

SOURCE: water runs into tub but does not fill?

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

SOURCE: When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

LG washer drains withour washing!!!!


Call LG customer service. The unit is probably still in warranty. If not contact a certified LG repair shop and have them come examine and if possible repair the machine.

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.

Ie code comes up washer wont fill up


An 'IE' error code on the display indicates an inlet error, or that the washer was unable to fill with water within a determined amount of time. Before replacing the water valves, check that there is not blockage at the valves. turn off the water, remove the water supply hoses from the valve, and see if there is a build up of sediment, rust, etc on the valve screens. If there is, you can remove the little screens and clean them. If all or any filter screens are ok, replace the valve assembly.

Washer filled and will not drain if I reset the fill capacity knob it will fill but not drain.


This washer has a belt. The belt drives the pump on this washer. The motor turns in both directions. iIn one direction the washer tub is locked and the tranny agitates. The water pumps out and the tub spins in the other direction. If that pump is locked up or the hose from tub to pump is blocked then it wont pump the water out. Lay the drain hose down towards a bucket and see if any water comes out. If not you got blockage. Once you drain it out tip is back and remove the belt (no tools needed) turn the pump both directions and look for signs of a failed pump. Manual and more

I have a LG direct drive wahing machine and its flashing IE cant find manual what does it mean please help!


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes. Check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle. There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly. wm_inlet_filter_removal(1).jpg If this doesn't work then you will need to change the water inlet valve by removing the top panel.

What does the IE error code mean? The washer wont drain.


The IE fault code indicates that your washer is not filling properly with water This error code is displayed if the washer is not fully drained within 10 minutes. I will give you troubleshooting tips for both the fill problem and the drain problem.

To troubleshoot a drain problem, follow these steps:

  • Follow the steps on page 17 of your owner's manual to clean the drain pump filter. If you do not have your owner's manual, you can access it on our Manage My Home website.
  • Check your drain hose for kinks or clogs.
  • Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed according to the installation instructions for your washer.

Here are some troubleshooting steps for the filling problem:

  • Make sure that the water valves behind your washer are fully open.
  • Check the filter screens on the inlet valves where your fill hoses connect to the back of the washer. If debris is clogging the screens, remove the screens and thoroughly clean them. Flush the inlet openings thoroughly with water to prevent debris from entering the washer and corrupting the inlet water valves.
  • A drain installation problem can cause siphoning of washer fill water. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed per the installation guidelines for your washer.

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

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.
