Hi IE means Inlet Error. The machine thinks that it is not filling (as a certain time has passed without reaching level it wants).
This makes sense if water is running out the bottom.
You will need to find the leak. Maybe the tub to pump hose, or the drain pump itself. Once you stop the leak and the machine can fill in the correct amount of time, you shouldnt see the IE error any longer.
you did not mention the type of machine but for top loader the most probable cause of your issue is the door /lid switch that is in need of adjustment as most top loaders will fill with the lid open but cycle cant start or continue when the wash thinks the door is open this is a safety feature
FE means Fill Error, but you already figured that out. If you unplug the machine and it still fills, and the only way to stop the filling is to turn off the valves supplying the water to the fill hose(s), then you need to replace a fill valve. It is best to figure out which one by turning one off at a time while the machine is in that FE condition. There is a separate hot and cold valve. (they are the part that the hose screws onto on the machine.) To replace valve, cover comes off machine by removing two screws at the back of the top. (not the two which go into the top, the ones just below them) Then, standing in front of the machine, use the palms of your hands to give the top a sharp push to the rear to slide the top back about two inches. Then lift the top off.
the system which controls water level is an air chamber with a small diameter pipe which goes to a pressure stat. when the correct level is reached, the pressure in the air chamber switches the pressure stat and cuts the water off.
the things to look for are:
gunge in the air chamber
split in the pipe.
faulty pressure stat
to test, get a similiar length of small diameter pipe and connect it to the pressure stat instead. with the machine filling, blow gently into the pipe and see if the water intake cuts off
