I get an IE message -manual says Water inlet trouble. Says I should check clogging of water inlet hose. Only hose connection I can find is in the bottom front. Nothing clogged. Is there anywhere else to check? Water is still entering dishwasher. Stops after about 2 minutes.
Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working.
If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering.

I am haveing this same problem. The dishwasher starts and about 2 mins. into the cycle it stops with an IE Error Message. I installed it myself, so I know it was installed correctly to Manufacturers specs. I called LG and the guy told me that I needed to "reboot" it by flipping the breaker. That did not work, so LG is sending someone so look at it this week.

The Inlet Hose is twisted.
The Filter of inlet valve clogged by impure water.
The Inlet Water Valve is normal ?
The water pressure is very low. ( below 0.5 kgf/ )
Inlet valve is blocked by safety device for leakage sensing.(In case of Inlet Valve).
Open the Water Tap.
Repair the Inlet Hose.
1.Close the Water Tap. 2.Unscrew the Inlet Hose (Inlet Valve side) 3.Clean the Filter of Inlet Valve. > Replace or repair the Inlet Valve. > Check the water remain on the base. 1.Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts. 2.Disconnect the inlet hose to dishwasher to unlock the safety valve. ERROR DISPLAY [OE] Drain error. Condition: Not fully drained out in spite of 5 min. drain operation. Possible causes:
The Filter clogged.
The Drain Hose twistec or blocked.
The Drain Pump/Motor or circuit is troubled.
Clean the Filter.
Remove the cause of twist or block.

ERROR DISPLAY [E I ] Leakage error. Condition: The water level in Tub goes down during operation. Possible causes:
Water leakage in Hose connections.
Water is leaked by damages.
Impeller of the washing Pump is worn away.
The Thermal Protector of the washing motor is functioned
Replace the connections of Hose.
Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts.
Replace the washing pump.
Check the applied voltage.
ERROR DISPLAY [ F E ] Excess error. Condition: Excessive water is supplied than normal water level.(Automatically drain Pump operated.). Possible causes:
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.
IE code ... This may help>>> check your water lines make sure the hot and cold water lines are on correctly they may be reversed... If you need to reset ,just simply unplug and hold the start/pause button for a few seconds... Hope this helps !
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.

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.
