My machine is doing just the same! It is about the same age as yours. I cannot believe this is it working properly, but the manufacurers are no help.

I am seriously thinking of getting rid of it, and would be loathe to touch an LG again.

It means Unbalanced Error, it means the machine cant balance the load during the spin cycle, normally happens if there is too little a load i.e 1 or 2 things or overloaded. It is designed to protect the bearings. If it happens with a normal load try stopping it and re-arranging the load by hand and putting it on a spin only cycle. Hope this helps.

It is possible that the machine does repeat the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

I have a LG WM1814CW front load washer. I get UE when it trys to go on spin cycle. I re-arranged the load and still comes up UE. I also tried a cycle without anything in the washer and still the same...


The UE error code is nothing to worry about. It indicates an "unbalanced error"¬-your washer's way of saying that the drum is not spinning is a smooth rotation. It could be as simple as rearranging the load in the drum (click image for zoom). Here's why:

1) Small loads. Your washer operates better when the weight of the load is evenly distributed across the drum, but that is not always possible with small loads.
2) Mixed fabric loads. For example, if you're washing jeans and t-shirts, the jeans could be on one side and the t-shirts on the other, causing the unbalance. Try rearranging the items and spin again.
3) Large single items. Items like sheets, blankets and comforters tend not to spread out evenly, causing unbalance when the drum spins. Rearrange the item and start the spin cycle over.
4) Spin Sense Option. If your washer has the Spin Sense Option, it may try to adjust the load on its own. If that happens, the washer would slow down and tumble a few times slowly during the spin cycle and then speed up until the problem is resolved.

Hi,
An UE Error Code is indicative of a “Unbalanced Error”.


This indicates that the drum is not spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum.


Thank You

Comes up with the sign UE ??


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The error code UE means there are some heavy clothing is loaded. Rearrange items to help balance the load. If the imbalance is heavy, the washer will make several attempts to restart the spin cycle. If an imbalance is still detected, the washer will stop and will display the error code UE. In case, if the load is small then you need to add 2-5 clothes to balance the load. If the load is out of balance then you need to rearrange the clothes to balance it. Although the Washer has an imbalance detection and correction system but if still the problem persists then it means that it is due to control error and needs to replaced preferably by a qualified service technician.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
