Have AE error code

    We are also getting an AE error. According to the booklet this means "water leaks" - but there are no leaks at all. Does anyone know the answer? We've carried out all the usual maintenance, drain not blocked, no excess detergent, no filter blocked etc.



    Thanks

Are you sure it's says AE for the error code.  LG doesn't list that particular error code.  Please check again.

SOURCE: How do i fix error

Hi.

Error AE is prompted when there is a leak detected at the base of the appliance or when the anti flood safety device gets activated.

Disconnect power by unplugging power cord or resetting circuit breaker.

While power is off remove any water present at the base of the appliance.

If there is no water, check the pressure switch, wiring and control board for faults that may result in error AE. Check also setting of the drain hose at the back (it may cause siphoning), and make sure that inlet valve is not leaking.

Regards.

I have a e ae please help


Good Afternoon Dan, thank you for your post!

Are you certain the error code is E AE? Is it possible that the error code is missing characters? According from my research EAE is not a valid error code. Meanwhile, let's try resetting the washer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the washer on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please advise me of the new error code or if it continues to display E AE? With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

Machine wd14030rd stopped midway through cycle with 'ae' water leak message although there is no apparant water surrounding machine. Turning off taps and power and machine still shows water leak message....


This is a really common problem that most people send hundreds when they can fix it themselves. Power off your washer, put it on its side. Your going to see four to six silver bolts with hex heads located in the center holding in a plastic device known as the filter assembly. Remove the screws and find any hair inside the assembly. Remove the hair and put the screws back in. Even the smallest amount of hair inside the filter/drain assembly will cause this problem. PRESS AND HOLD POWER BUTTON TO RESET THE ERROR CODES

Ae display warning


Hi


Error AE means that the machine has detected a leak in the base of the washer. The anti flood device has detected the water and its displaying the error AE.

Unplug the washer and remove the back panel of the washer. Check for any stagnant water present in the base of the washer. If no water is present then check for the anti flood sensor and any disconnected wires.

Please post back for any further assistance.

LG Washer/Dryer won't drain


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

FAULT CODE


AI got here after googling the same problem.
There are many reports of this "dHE" error - all with BRAND NEW MACHINES !

I rang LG in Sydney, Australia today and amazingly the girl on the phone said there are no known issues with this dryer
(In Australia the combo dryer is known as WD14700RD ) - 7kg washer / 4kg dryer.
Mine has same problem. Whenever the dryer is selected in the program, it stops after the wash phase and flashed dHE (or dHe, can't remember) and thats as far as it gets.

Its a tech, call out tomorrow to try & fix it.
Very poor LG, these are brand new machines, many reports of this problem from googling it but LG have no knowledge a problem.

This may end up being a recall or at the very least, some public announcement of this dHe problem with this washer.
New buyers beware ... It is a fault with brand new machines.
