Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
LG's 'IE' stands for 'Inlet Error'- water supply.
Check that the taps are turned fully on and that the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back. If all is OK then it could be a problem with one of the water inlet valves and will require a service call, sorry ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
Please score this solution accordinly- thanks!

SOURCE: Wat does 1E mean? my

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As you have not mentioned the model number I am having to guess what your 1E means.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

My Samsung Washer has a code of 1E which means maybe the water level. My problem is that it want turn off. Even when I push the stop button. The door is locked and it keeps beeping and flashing


1e is usually a pressure sensor error. To open the door you will need to switch off the appliance at the wall then after about 2 minutes the door should unlock. You could try the appliance again as it may just be a glitch but you will probably need the pressure sensor.

Good luck.

Washer from flashing 1E & leaking


LG Washing Machine Displaying Fault Code IE or 1E WM2016CW WATER INLET ERROR // Water not entering washing machine correctly
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate 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.

My washing machine russell hobbs rh1042 gets half way in to a cycle then stops and lights start flashing what does this mean


Your machine is trying to tell you something-do you have the owners manual-if you don't I'd bet you could find it online-what I would look for is an explanation of the flashings-it will probably tell you to count the number of flashes to tell you what is going on-cheers denny

Hi i have a samsung a fuzzy toploader as soon as i turn it on it gives me a 1E error HELP!!


It is probably not 1e but IE meaning input error. There is no water entering the machine. Could be the water valve. just in case check the inlet filter at the inlet valve to see it isn't blocked. then you will need to call for service www.thewashingmachineman.webs.com
