IE as you say is an inlet error.

Basically the machine is either not taking in water or it doesn't know it's taking in water.

If it's the former then you need to check the water supply to the appliance hasn't been accidentally turned off.

If it's on and there's water reaching the inlet valve then either the valve is faulty or the main control board isn't powering the valve.

If it's taking in water then it would suggest a restriction or failure in the pressure system.

Unplug the appliance and take the top off.

Locate the pressure switch and take the thin tube off the bottom of it.

Blow as hard as you can down the tube, refit it and try the machine again.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

On LG's, a 1E error message usually means there is a problem with the water inlet valve. Check your shutoff valve under the sink, first, just to make sure someone didn't accidentally turn it off. If it's on, then it's most likely the water inlet valve located under the dishwasher.

I keep getting the 1E code. I go into the washer and try and rearrange the load, and want to be able to restart the load but can't do that. Typically it happens when there is only about 10min. left in...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
  • The error code of "IE" signifies a water inlet error. This means that your machine is not filling to the proper water level, and may be fixed by ensuring that machine's water supply is properly connected and turned on.
  • If every thing there checks out fine then the inlet valve on the machine is faulty and needs to be replaced ...
  • drain error will result in an error code of "OE." This means that your washer is not properly draining. Ensure that your drain hose is free of kinks and clean. Your filter also must be clean
    An error code of "FE" represents an overflow error. This means that the water level is too high, and the machine will start draining itself automatically.
    An error code of "E1" represents a leakage error. This means there is a leak in one of your hose connections.

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: .

I 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 washing machine wm-1460fhd door locked wont open

We have a WM-1480FHD, with the door stuck shut. It appears the door release mechanism in the actual door has broken, so when you pull the lver part, the catch is not released. You need to get a very flat knife,insert between the door and the front of the machine, right in the middle behind the release handle and push the hook towards the right side of the machine.Once open, you can check the release mechanism in the actual door. Ours is broken, so need to sort out how to repair/replace it next!

LG Intello wm-1460FHD stops spinning during the wash load.

OE is a drain error (indicating the machine has not drained out in under 10 minutes). If the drain pump is not coming on at all then you have a bad drain pump motor. If it is trying to drain then you may have a clogged up drain hose. The most likely cause is a bad drain pump motor. Hope this helps.
