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.

When water is on mains the hot water doesn't work only the cold working


If you have hot or warm wash selected and you get no hot water, a possible cause is that the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection has failed. Try connecting the hot tap to the cold inlet on the back of the machine, and selecting cold wash. If you then get hot water coming in you will know it is almost certainly the solenoid inlet valve on the hot connection.

Were is cold water inlet and hot water outel on model 71-40d b


Cold inlet and hot outlet are marked on top of water heater.
Usually there is a letter or word embossed into the metal top.

If tank is connected, then turn on hot water tap for a few moment and feel which pipe is hot.

Cold water enters bottom of tank through dip tube located on cold side. If hot and cold are reversed, the water heater will not perform as expected.

IE error on wd1484adp


LG's 'IE' stands for '(water) Inlet Error'.

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB

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

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .


Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.

The cold water will not run.


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:

If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

I've just moved house and my machine is not


Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.
