In my LG Manual, They IE error is water inlet trouble.

Possible causes

  • Water supply is not adequate in area
  • water supply taps are not completely open
  • water inlet hose are kinked
  • the filter of the inlet hose are clogged
Solutions
  • Check another tap in the house
  • Fully open tap
  • Straigten hose
  • check the filter of the inlet hose
Not sure if this helps, it's what is says in my book.

Good luck.

Just started today I cant get the trunk open. The key doesn't seem to turn all the way and the trunk release leaver located next to driver seat also will not open it.


You may have jammed some material into the latch. A rag or cloth or even paper can cause sudden binding on the latch to the point it won't open. Find a partner to assist you to press down firmly onto the trunk lid to try to relieve excess pressure on that latch, while the other person tries to turn the key and/ or pull that lever.

If that does not work, try the opposite force (ie. pulling upward on the trunk lid) and doing the same. If bad enough, this may take a while, with effort. But be careful NOT to break off your key in the lock cylinder.

If this fails, try accessing the trunk from the rear seat (even removing it). You may even see the culprit from there as the material will be stuck, requiring firm pulling to get it out of that latch.

If, when you finally do get the trunk open, if it turns out it was NOT an obstruction, your lock mechanism may just be bound up. To free it spray liberally with penetrating oil such as PB Blaster. Allow to soak a bit, then repeatedly rotate the lock with the key. It will soon work like new!

IE error code comes on even after replacing the water inlet valve


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:
Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is
locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is
locked.
The Blade is locked.

Remedy:
Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ω)

Remove the door panel and inspect the wires near the bottom of the door. the wires get buried in the tar like insulation causing the wires to break as the door is opened and closed.

Additionally, I suggest vsit this LG Knowledgebase

Keep us updated.

Error code shows F71. door is locked and there are clothes in there soaking in water that I need to get out!! what does F71 mean and how do if solve the problem


Hi.

Sorry for the late reply.

F71 points at a connection error between button pad and control board.

Please read the indications in this article: F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes...

If you get similar problems in the future, and machine gets stuck in error mode with clothes inside, empty water from tub disconnecting the drain filter, located behind a panel in front lower side of appliance. After emptying water the door will normally get opened.

Regards.

Error code dL F is popping up on washer. Door will not open, is locked but light will not come on on panel where is says "door locked." Can't wash, nor get the clothes out that need to be washed.


Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. This error occurs because the washer senses that the door cannot be locked (even if it is). The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Clothes locked inside the machine


There is a mechanical lock so you can't open it when running. make sure the switch is off but machine is plugged in. push the door in with a little bit of pressure and with the base of you hand give it a few gentle "thumps around the area of the opening handle it it likely stuck from you trying to open the door in the locked position. Hopefully that will knock it loose (I've seen it before you will probably here it click)

I get an error code: F dU and my washer won't drain properly


I too, had the same issue with the door not opening. My solution was to unplug the power cord and then plug it back in and press the green button's as if to start a cycle and while it starts putting water into the washer I put my knee and weight into the door lock area and held pressure from my knee and press the red stop button until the lights went out, and I took my knee off the door lock area and opened the door!!! No taking off the lower panel.
If this works for you too please email me email4millers@cinci.rr.com.

Not drain


DL is the fault code for door lock error and occurs if the CCU (Cental Control Unit)"recognize" that door is unlocked. Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit and to the CCU. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure
