LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer E1 error

I know the E1 error code is no water inlet. I have removed the hoses from the mechine, I had great water pressur. I pulled out bothe the hot and cold filter at the inlet, both were clean and without blockage.
Where can I find a schematic for this unit? I can only hope it's a relay or internal valve, I rather not open it until I find some reference to start with.
Thanks for any advice. Thanks

    Hello: I have a similar problem with my wms377cs front load. No water enters, and then the E1 code comes on. hoses and filters are clean and good pressure. Thanks SGT 48 for the info on the test mode. I did that, and the 4th item, inlet valve prewash does nothing. The next 2 work fine, that is inlet main wash and hot water, so it seems the valve is OK ? Please advise if you know what to do next....



    Thanks, Steve

You may have a bad valve. The multi valve is cold and the single is hot. You can go into test mode and check them out to see if how the are fuctioning. Caution must be used. DO NOT GO INTO TO TEST MODE WITH CLOTHES IN UNIT AS IT WILL NOT BALANCE OUT FIRST AND WILL BOUNCE ALL OVER, AGAIN DO NOT DO THIS.
here is how to acces the test mode
With the unit off
Press and hold 'spin speed' and 'soil level'
turn the power on
press the start button to advance
once the tub will rotate clockwise
2nd time low spin speed
3rd high spin
4th inlet valve prewash
5th inlet main wash
6th hot water
7th bleach
8th tumble counter clockwise
9 heater comes on for 3 seconds
10 circulation pump
11 drain
12 power off
again do not attempt this with clothes in the unit.
if the valves don't activate fully than it is a bad valve and it has to be replaced.

    the diagram is on the back panel, or should be, the valves are internal. When you take off the top lid, 2 screws on the back then slide the lid back, they are right there. Try the test mode to see which valve is causing the problem. They are quite easy to change.

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

Tip

LG Washing machine IE error code Solutions


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.

Are the water valves opened completely?

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.

Are the inlet hose filters clogged?

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.

Are the inlet hoses attached properly?

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.

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.

Error code e01 f08


Knowed as F8 E1 error code...
This code indicates there maybe a problem with the water supply to the washer. Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.

NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on; the washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.

Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details; you can find them by entering your model number in the search tool below.

Is the water pressure less than 10 psi? If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.

Are you using HE High Efficiency detergent? Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds can prevent the washer from detecting the incoming water.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

To remove the error display, press Power once. Then press Power again to restart the washer. If pressing Power does not work:
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTES:
* On some washers, when the washer is started for the first time after this error code, it will begin to drain. You will not be able to pause or cancel the cycle for about 8 minutes while it drains. This is normal.
* If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Is the drain hose extending more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe? The drain hose may be too far inside the drainpipe (standpipe) or laundry tub. Drained water can siphon back into the washer if the drain hose extends too far. Make sure the drain hose does not extend more than 8" (20.3 cm) into the drainpipe or laundry tub. Using the U-shaped drain hose form as described in the Installation Instructions will provide the appropriate length of drain hose in the drainpipe or laundry tub.

E1 error on bwm70, what does this mean


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Baumatic's 'e1' states fairly bluntly 'no fill'!

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,

Are you using flood-preventing inlet hoses that can shut off the water to the washer?
These hoses have a valve inside that will close if the water pressure is higher than two gallons per minute; this will shut off the water to the washer. If one of these hoses becomes loose, the water flow through the hose will increase and close the valve inside the hose, which will shut off water to the washer to prevent a possible leak or flood. If the hose is not loose, try taking the hoses back to the store for a replacement set.

To remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:

Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTES:
On some washers, when the washer is started for the first time after this error code, it will begin to drain. You will not be able to pause or cancel the cycle for about 8 minutes while it drains. This is normal.
