IE is an water level and inlet water valve fault.

Being that you have verified the inlet filter and water supply there is a possibility that the electrical connector has come loose from the valve or control board. This will mean that you have to open the top of the machine to see the issue. I can give you further instruction on this if you like...

It might be a good idea to call someone in if your machine is still under warranty.

HOW DO I STARTS MY WASHING MACHINE AGAIN CAUSE IT ALWAYS `IE` ERROR EVEN I ALREADY CLEAN THE FILTER,CHECK HOSE,THIS ERROR HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE USE IT MANUAL WHEN NO WATER IN SERVICE,I MEAN HE MANUALLY


The IE or E1 error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve
If you are trying to use the machine manually, there needs to be enough water in the machine to tell the level sensor when to switch off the water inlet solenoid valve. Failing this, the machine will only show IE (Inlet Error) and refuse to work.

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.

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.

The washer stops in the middle of the cycle and says IE.


The IE error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged and by removing the inlet hose from the machine, check that the inlet filters are clean. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

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

imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help

Greetings julie312,

The "IE" message can mean that water is not entering your dispenser. If you have traces of lime in your water or very hard water, your water inlet hose can become clogged quite easily. To clean this please do the following:

Turn off the inlet water tap.
Unscrew the water inlet hose.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Replace filter and hose, tighten water inlet hose.

Your water inlet hose is found on the back of your machine. It is recommended to clean this every few months.

You can also find a link to your manual by following http://us.lge.com/products/model/detail/home%20appliances_laundry_washers_WM2277H___yes.jhtml

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy
