Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'IE' for LG's decodes as 'water inlet error' which is quite right!
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- it's not closing completely- its default/no power state. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Lg model lds5540 smells, will not clean properly and doesn't seem to have enough water during cycle. also occasionally shows the fe error code. ??? any thoughts?


WATER OVER FLOW ERROR // Water continuing to enter machine
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced.You can check it with a multimeter to confirm, it should show continuity on both hot and cold pins. try exchanging the how and cold water hoses, cold on hot and hot on cold, see what happens. have u tried running only cold water or hot water wash? as for the smell could be a build up of detergent or frabic softner, try washer running machine with hot water and vinigar to clean out also check inlet valve for dirt build up

If you are getting the IE fault code or error code from your LG washing machine...



If you are getting the IE fault code or error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know why you are getting that code and what do you need to do to fix the problem.

You get this code if you have a LED model

This error code is caused when the washing machine does not fill up with water in about eight minutes. The washing machine gives its self eight minutes to reach the right water level. If there is a problem that keeps the water from entering fast enough the machine will shut down and give the IE error or fault code.

The most likely problem that will cause this fault or error code is that the water hose screens are plugged with dirt and debris. Most all washing machines have some type of water filter in the hoses or in the machine at the entering point for the water. Dirt and debris will build up in these filters till in restricts the water flow enough to cause this problem.

The other cause for this error is if you happen to reverse the hoses. If the cold water hose is on the hot side and the hot is on the cold side it can also cause to alarm. If the filters look clean then check the location of the hoses and make sure that they are properly connected.

Check that the water valves where the hoses connect to the domestic water supply are on completely. Some valves are difficult to tell if they are completely on or not.

If you need to reset your washing machine fault or error codes you can do this by unplugging the machine and then holding the start/pause button for five seconds. Then plug the machine back in and the code should be removed.

Washing machine is showing IE


If you have a LG washer, the IE error indicates an inlet error. This can be caused by low water pressure, the water shut-off valves being in the closed position, clogged filters (either at the shut-off valves or the filters on the washer), an anti-flood inlet hose failure or a problem with the washer's inlet valve. First, make sure that the shut-off valves are open. Next, shut off those valves and disconnect the fill hoses. Check and clean the filters on each side. Try new hoses. (Many anti-flood hoses will restrict the flow when they fail. A way to check this can be to connect the hoses to the shut-off valves and put the other end into a bucket. Open the shut-off valves and check the amount of water flowing into the bucket. Do this for the hot and cold side separately.) Make sure that the inlet hoses are not kinked.

Make sure that the end of the outlet hose isn't lower than the washer's fill level. This can lead to the water flowing out of the washer as it fills.

If none of these solutions work, then the inlet valve has failed in the closed position or there is a problem with the sensor that monitors the amount of water in the tub within a certain amount of time. Try replacing the inlet valve. (If you add a comment with the washer model number, I may be able to get the part number for you.) Of course if the washer is under warranty, contact the company.

For a Samsung washer, this could be a Suds error. That suggests too much detergent was used, a non-HE detergent was used, or the filter before the drain pump is clogged. Try running the washer without any detergent to rinse the excess detergent out. If the error recurs, get a bucket ready to catch the water from the tub and pump. Next you will need to get into the washer and separate the drain hose from the pump and clean out the "coin catcher" filter. Make sure that there are no foreign objects in the pump. Then reconnect the hose and try running the machine. (If you add a comment with the model, I may be able to tell you how to access the pump.) Other causes for the IE error are a bad door seal or the outlet hose being too low in the overflow pipe. Also check that the washer is level and that the detergent drawer is fully closed.

I hope this helps.

My LG front loader is showing an "FE" error. The water seems to continue running into the tub, leaking out the door.


Good morning

I looked this up to make sure I was thinking the right way. The FE means there is too much water in the machine... lol bet you already knew that. Since water is actually coming out of the machine it looks like a bad fill valve. The plastic piece your hot and cold water lines hook into is not shutting off all the way.

I hope this helps

THE SCREEN SHOWS IE


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes. 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.
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.
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.
And finely if all of this does not work then the inlet valve on the machine needs to be replaced ok?
Hope this all helps

WHAT DOES ERROR CODE IE MEAN ON LG DIRECT DRIVE WASHING MACHINE?


IE = Inlet Error. Check for plugged screens where hoses screw onto machine (especially the cold side). Other possibilies are kinked hoses, valve shut off where hose goes to washer, or a bad inlet water valve (the part the hose screws onto), or even a bad control board or bad wire to water valve.

LG wm1832cw Washer IE error


Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. When u hav rinse problems, it is usually the outlet filter.
