• The load is too small.
• The appliance is tilted.
• Laundry is gathered to one side.
• Non distributable things are put into the drum.
Check also the damper units for condition.

The UE code means unbalanced load. Try removing the load and restarting with the washer empty (except for the water, of course). If the error code clears, balance the load better (e.g. if it's a single item, try adding another item of similar size and weight so the load can even itself out as it tumbles to start the spin cycle.

SOURCE: LG WM2032HW spin cycle

I had the same problem. You most likely have a drain pump issue. For me, after getting to the drain pump, I found that the hoses leading into it were clogged with dirt. I cleaned all the hoses, and took off the drain pump itself. The impeller (the little plastic blades inside) had come off the pump shaft. I was able to clean out the impeller and pump housing and it went back on. You'll know it's all the way on because it will click into place and then it won't easilty (if at all) pull back off. After this cleaning, mine worked fine. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: "UE" error code LG washer wm0642hw

This is an Imbalance code. Your issue may be with:

  • The load is too small
  • The appliance is tilted
  • Laundry is gathered to one side
  • Non-distributed things are put into the drum
Try adjusting the load size, and make sure the unit is level.

SOURCE: LG Tromm washer wont spin through the spin cycle

This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.

SOURCE: Hi, we have a LG

working on lg for a while we have talked to tech suport and they don't want to admit they have a issue with these units.. first of all they say if on a pedastal they will give you problems but yet they sale the darn things... what we have found though is there is a device called a haul densor and it is very easy to replace you have to remove the backof unit panel and gain access to the back of tub... make sure it is connected well as it is on a rotor looking device called a stator assembly... if it is connected well and you have made sure it is level you have a bad haul sensor...thsi is what determines the speed of drum and slows down unit if getting out of balanced.. it is not that expensicve and pretty easy to fix.... hope this helps you out...

SOURCE: I am having problems with my LG Washer. There is

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Don't wait- follow these;-0)
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

Hi!

I think there is nothing wrong with your washer. The UE error means Unballanced Error. This error comes up in two cases: 1. the load is distributed unevenly in the drum or 2. the machine is not properly set on an even surface (floor).
Of course, it could be a third case possible, but very unlikely, when the ballance sensor itself is malfunctioning and have to be replaced, or the spring and dampers are worn out and also have to be replaced.

Hope it helped!

Best regards

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.

I get a message le or ue error and machine stops


Where in the cycle is the machine stopping?
A 1E error would be a fill problem. Either the water supply is inadequate (low pressure coming in due to a problem with your water supply), the water supply taps aren't fully open (make sure to open the valves fully), the inlet hose is bent (straighten the hose) or the inlet filter is clogged (clean the filter).

An UE error happens during the spin cycle. Either the load is too small or the load is uneven. Add some items that can tolerate the spin cycle speed or redistribute the load.

A LE error indicates that the motor has overloaded. Wait 30 minutes and then try to restart the machine. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

The manual for the WM-2277H* is available from LG as a DjVu file here: http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WM2277HB&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WM2277HB&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile# .

I hope this helps.

Screen reads UE? what is UE?


UE stands for Unbalance Error. If the washer has tried to spin numerous times, tried to redistribute the load itself between each attempt, and still not been able to get the load up to full speed without experiencing an off balance condition, it will finally stop and display the UE code. This is most often the case when a heavy / bulky item(s) are being washed and the spin speed is set very high. When washing these items, set the spin speed to low. The machine will most likely be able to handle that. If you want them spun out faster, then AFTER the washer has made it through the cycle on low speed spin do this: Turn the power back on. Without selecting any cycle, just press the spin speed button, selecting the next higher spin speed. Now press start, and your washer will just do a 14 minute or so pump and spin.
For super wet heavy loads, if you cannot even get the washer to go through a cycle on the lowest spin speed, you may have to wring a bunch of the water out of the clothes by hand before doing the 14 minute cycle thing.

What does UE mean in the window of my washer


UE = Unbalance Error. If you are doing a large item and cannot add, reduce, or adjust the load, try adjusting the spin speed to a low spin speed setting. If the load is still too wet, you can run just a pump and spin by turning on power and then selecting the spin speed, one setting higher than the last one which ran the full cycle through without resulting in the UE code,(without selecting a cycle) and push start.

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.
