Check water pressure. Check inlet filters--the ones inline at the back of the washer. Try a cold water only wash or try a hot/hot wash a see if you still get the error.

Why does my LG ( LD12AT7 )dishwasher still give me an IE error code after I replaced the inlet valve?


When this happened to my 12 year old dishwasher, I take out the filter at the base of washer, and using a cup, drain excess water. Add the cheapest VINEGAR to the base, screw the filter back in. Wait a few hours for the vinegar to do its magic, hey presto! the machine works again. I'm ready to buy another, newer model, but this trick works everytime! Sometimes, I don't even empty all that fluid out, but just add that Vinegar. Hope this solves your problem too. Havagreatday!

My lg ld 1403w1 dishwasher fills with water and then error code I.E appears have bailed out water and tried it three times same result


Hi june1245,

I.E means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame (varies on model) - Make sure of the following first:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Un-kink it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

If all of these come back OK, and it still gives the same problem, I'd suggest replacing the inlet valve (Found on the opposite side of the inlet pipe - inside your Dishwasher), could also be a pressure switch (Found at the bottom of your Dishwasher - accessible from the bottom).

This should solve any problems.

Kind Regards :-)

Hi I have an LG LD - 14AW23 dishwasher. It shows an IE error (no water) but it fills, stops and then gives the error message. What's thye problem? Many thanks, John


Hi


Error code IE on LG dishwasher means Inlet error. This error comes up when the Water Supply Tap is closed or Water Supply is shut off. If water supply is turned on then make sure that the Inlet Hose is not kinked and water Pressure is not low (should be above 10 psi). Next thing to check for is Water Inlet Valve, measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms) Make sure the filter of Inlet Valve is not clogged.

Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

IE error code


IE. is inlet water valve error.

Make sure someone did not turn off the water to the washer!!!!

Remove fill hoses and check filter screens on washer and fill hoses and clean if needed.
If problem continues water valve may need to be replaced.

Keep on getting the IE erorr


Error code IE means an water inlet error. Correct water level is not reached within 8 minutes after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water level within 25 minutes.
Make sure water supply tap is open and not frozen. Check and clean water inlet valve from debris. If the issue persists, replace water inlet valve.

Ie error code


The Water Supply Tap is closed. The Water Supply is shut off. The Inlet Hose is kinked. The Water Pressure is very low. (below 10 psi) Inlet Valve is OK? The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged by impure water. The Hall sensor is OK? The Impeller of Air Guide is bound
Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ) Clean the filter of Inlet Valve. Check the frequency of Inlet Water by the Test Mode. Replace the Air Braker.

Lg LDS 5811st IE code


With an LG 5811 diswasher, when the IE error code is not caused by kinked hot water hose or blocked screen, the next step is to measure the electric resistance of the Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms)
