Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error IE means WATER INLET ERROR. This happens when the Correct water level (246) is not reached within 8 minutes, after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water level within 25 minutes.
To resolve this error check the following steps to troubleshoot the issue--

  • Is the tap opened?
  • Is the tap frozen?
  • Is the water supply shut-off?
  • Is filter in the inlet valve clogged with foreign material?
  • If all above things are fine then you'll need to replace the Water inlet valve.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

THE SCREEN SHOWS IE


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
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.
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.
If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.
And finely if all of this does not work then the inlet valve on the machine needs to be replaced ok?
Hope this all helps

NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.

Displaying IE fault code


This is an inlet error. Shut the water valves off and remove the hoses one at a time. Shine a flashlite in to where the hose screws into the machine. Check the filter screens in there for any type of debris. Yiu can remove these filter screens with needle nose pliers. Once they are cleaned and re-installed, try it again. If is still showing an error, you have a connection/valve/or control problem.

My whirpool duet washer is displaying F33 code. It doesnt spin at a high rate of speed to allow for the clothes to spin dry therefor the door latch will not open.


The F33 error indicates a PUMP DRIVE SYSTEM ERROR and occurs when the connection between pump and the Central Control Unit (CCU) is lost.

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
4. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.


System Leak - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code. Check for any cracks or holes in the washer tub or pressure switch hose. Replace if damaged.

Also

1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray.
3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
5. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
6. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
7. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
8. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
9. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
10. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
11. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Fisher and paykel water leak


Code F1 indicates that Flood switch has been
activated which explain why you feel that it is overfilling.

Water leaking
Drain hose disconnected
from waste pipe.
Reconnect the drain hose to the waste pipe.
Supply inlet hose not
properly connected.
Ensure the inlet hose is connected securely.
Other leaks. Turn water and power supplies to the
Dishwaher off.

Whirlpool washer f30 code


This error relates to the motor drive. Plug off the wall, open up behind, look for broken belt. If the belt is good its the motor brushes. Secure connections to the motor, look for loose wires.....
