More than likely, you have a problem with the balance ball sensor in the back of the unit if it so equipped.  It is located in the back of the unit and will require an LG qualified tech to see what's going on.

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

I got a ue code


UE means unbalance error. It means the machine can't balance the clothes in the drum so it won't spin to prevent excessive vibration and damage to the machine.
Usually opening the door and rearranging the clothes helps, or take some out then put onto a rinse and spin. If there is just a few items in then it will struggle to spread them around and balance.

BRand new installation of 1 year old machine we


hi,

I am a novice at front loaders but it sounds like it needs new suspension parts, namely springs, sounds like the machine had a hard life before you got it. since its used anyways it cant hurt to take the back off and see and study how it works and how the drums suspension works. you can try to find the springs at an appliance store. Im not sure if you can get springs directly from LG. LG's are a pretty good name brand, probably worth fixing..
good luck!

Comes up with the sign UE ??


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The error code UE means there are some heavy clothing is loaded. Rearrange items to help balance the load. If the imbalance is heavy, the washer will make several attempts to restart the spin cycle. If an imbalance is still detected, the washer will stop and will display the error code UE. In case, if the load is small then you need to add 2-5 clothes to balance the load. If the load is out of balance then you need to rearrange the clothes to balance it. Although the Washer has an imbalance detection and correction system but if still the problem persists then it means that it is due to control error and needs to replaced preferably by a qualified service technician.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle


IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.

UE error code


You may have a problem with the ball balance sensor.  One of the things I have noticed is when the installers deliver and set up the washers, they get a little too rough and cause a dent in the rear panel of the washer.  In the rear panel, the ball balance sensor is mounted onto the frame.  If the tub spins too wildly, it will hit the ball balance sensor causing it to go UE.  But if the back panel is pushed in too much, the tub will actually make contact with the ball balance sensor too early causing a UE error code.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician look into it.

LG WM2077CW (UE error code)


For "ue" an unbalanced load is sensed three times; re-adjust your load in the machine. What is the capacity of your machine, you could weigh your dry clothes........refer manual.

For e1, it could be a water sensor problem. Check to see if the inlet valve is okay and not clogged, water shd be in good pressure. If this is okay, open up behind after taking the plug off the wall. There is a thin tube coming from the switch area to the outlet pump area; disconnect this from the top carefully and blow into it, it should be free; if it is clogged you will hav a water level problem. Unblock and refit carefully.

My washer shows UE code


UE code is an "unbalance error". Believe it or not, it is possible to unbalance a front load style washing machine. Usually caused by trying to wash smaller loads where the drum spins to try to distribute the weight evenly. With less laundry, you cannot distribute enough weight evenly around the drum and sometimes will cause an unbalanced load. If your problem is not a simple loading issue, it could be the balance sensor, loose wiring, or possibly the main control board. I hope this helps.
