Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

LE comes up on the display window halfway through cicle.

I noticed that a lot of other people had this same problem and just unplugged it for 10 min. and then plugged it back in, but the manual says that their is a filter on the back of the machine where you screw the hot/cold hose into the machine that needs to be cleaned every couple of months. I tried all the above solutions, and they worked for a couple months, then out of the blue again it would send the same error code, until I read about these filters. I did as the manual says to and cleaned them up, also ran 4 cups of vinegar into the drum and ran it for a full cycle to clean up any soap scum build-up. now the machine is working like brand new!! when taking the hose off the machine don't forget to turn the water source off. the filter is in the machine, not the hose so you have to really get back there and look to see them.

IE is a water inlet error. It could be that your water valves are plugged as you suspect. What you can do is put the unit into a test mode and check your valves to see that they are working once you have checked your hoses and connections.
Make sure unit is empty and never try this with anything inside.
press and hold Spin Speed and Soil Level then press on and release
press the start button to advance
1 time tumbles
2 low spin
3 high spin
4 prewash valve (once spinning has stopped valve will turn on)
5 main wash
6 hot water
7 bleach, should be a lesser flow as it has a restrictor
8 tumble counter clockwise
9 temp in tub
10 drain
11 off
if your hoses are clean and the filters, and your water pressure is good, you may have a bad valve.
note, before it starts the door lock will engage.

Washer stops cycleing

First are you sure the error code is 'LE' and not 'tE' which looks very similar. The LE is usually the motor position sensor. Common on older washers. Easy fix. Under $20 part. The tE error is usually the thermistor. Inexpensive part about $6, but can be more complicated to get to. Ad a comment to your question and my answer with error code and I'll reply with more info if needed.

Is not want to star the cicle. and apper the letters "le''


Thanks for using FixYa. The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the Hall Effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped. To resolve this check the wire harness connecting both of them and replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

A new T7316 set comes up as a 7310 on a MICS 6.1

Thats because the set is a T7316 and not a T7316e set. The T7316 is seen by the system as a 10 button set. You'll also notice that the lines start about halfway down the display and can't be moved.
