Greetings julie312,

The "IE" message can mean that water is not entering your dispenser. If you have traces of lime in your water or very hard water, your water inlet hose can become clogged quite easily. To clean this please do the following:

Turn off the inlet water tap.
Unscrew the water inlet hose.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Replace filter and hose, tighten water inlet hose.

Your water inlet hose is found on the back of your machine. It is recommended to clean this every few months.

You can also find a link to your manual by following

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

IE error on LG intellowasher

IE = Inlet Error. Turn off supply valves to hoses and remove hoses from back of machine. Pull inlet screens out of the washer where the hoses were previously attached, clean them out, and re-install. That solves the IE problem about 95% of the time. (Usually, you only have to clean out the cold one.)

LG Washer stops when it gets to rinse cycle

Code flashing IE? The code means the machine is not getting enough rinse water. Remove the hoses from the back i=of the machine, pull out screens, cold water is blue tab inside connection on washer, hot water is red. Clean screens and insert them back into the appropriate connection. Use a stiff brush and water to clean. Reset the machine by disconnecting power, press start/pause button(blue button on right) for at least five seconds, reconnect power.

Kinked inlet hose. Screened hose washer in inlet hose plugged. Frozen water supply pipe(s). No power to washer inlet valve(s). Old inlet hoses with separated layers, blocking water flow under pressure.
Turn off valves, remove from machine end, put in bucket and turn on valves to make sure you have water up to machine. Now work back to find why you are not getting water into machine.

LG has general error codes for all there appliances and the "ie" error code is for the water supply. You either have a kink in your hose, water vavle shut off, or the bad problem your pump is bad.
