SOURCE: IE error message

Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working. If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering. conrad_dot_dewet@gmail.com - replace "_dot_" with "." to email me.

First if you have a wet vac pull the drain hose out of the drain spout and use the vac to pull the water out of the washer through the drain hose.If not you will need a pair of radiator hose clamps from the auto parts store. Pull the screws from the lower panel at the front of the washer and remove it.in side you will see a rubber hose coming down from the tub to the drain pump. Put the radiator hose clamp there if you didn't have a shop vac.On the front of the pump is a round part with a handle turn that and remove the pump filter .Clean any foreign objects out of the pump and look inside the pump to make sure no impeller blades are broken if any are you will have to replace the pump. put the filter back in and tighten it. If you had to use the hose clamp remove it now.reassemble and don't forget to give the tech his four boxes if this fixes it

SOURCE: Front loader f02 code

Check the entire length of the drain hose as well. This is from the bottom of the wash tub, to where it connects to the drain pump, to where it exits the washer to the standpipe. The two error codes can be directly related to each other. "F02" usually indicates a clog or failure of the drainage system. "Sud" can be caused from using too much, or improper detergent. It can also be caused when the drain pump is not functioning properly and is pumping air. If you have tried the "Rinse & Spin" option to clear the error, and you have verified all of your drainage system and still have a problem. It is recommended that you replace the drain pump. It may be running, but the impeller may be damaged and it is not pumping water properly. The following links may be of assistance to you:

SOURCE: how do you open the front cover for Kenmore front loader 110.42926200

Sure thing, under the door is a kick panel, held on by three hex screws,standard uses 1/4 inch and torx uses a 9/32 socket. A slight down tug will loosen the panel and behind that you will see the pump at right front. Just to the left is a round soda can shaped housing with a large turn screw lid attached to the pump. Grab a bucket and some towels, unscrew the lid like a jar of peanut butter slowly to let the water into the bucket. This may require two trips and some getting wert. The trap is attached and easy to clean. Next reach behind a gently shake the black boot joining the tub to the pump for coins and lint. The last item is getting a bright light and inspecting the pump through the small hole right side that can be seen once the trap is removed. Check for debris then put a finger in the hole and check the impeller for disconnection from debris/

FH Error Code on Whirlpool Duet & Kenmore Elite Front Loaders


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “FH” error code.

"F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. If not, click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It’s a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.


There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

I hope this helpful. Please post back if you can't find the tech sheet and/or need further assistance.

Clothes are sopping wet even after doing the spin cycle 3 and 4 times, water is going through hose fine it seems, it a front loader


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

What is problem code IE and how do I fix it on my LG front load washing machine?


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes. If an IE error code appears on the washer, 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. if this doesn't help then there are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, 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
Hope this helps.

My washing machine had an error code of 1E, and now will not wash on any setting except the "quick wash" - and even then, occasionally the detergent will not go through. It is an LG front...


It is not 1E, but I.E which is "INLET ERROR", the inlet valve is not letting the water through, it does sound intermittent though, please check the following, if it does not solve your problem, the Inlet valve should be replaced (Which can be bought at any reputable Appliance Spares Shop)

- Is the tap open fully?
- Check the Inlet Hose, is it kinked in any way?

Hope this helps

Lg tromm front loader washing machine display panel reading l-E.


error code 'IE' means water does not enter the detergent drawer..if your water is hard or contains traces of lime deposits, the water inlet filter may become clogged..regular cleaning is suggested..clean the filter using hard bristle brush..

note: hard water is the one not undergone any treatment..in other words it is directly from the ground through your water pump and to the washer.
