    I have replaced the cold inlet valve so water now comes.
    However the dial no longer turns on its own.
    We have to manually turn the dial for each cyle within the machine, we do notice a "clicking" noise as if it is to turn the dial, but it wont turn on its own

Your problem sounds like a fill valve problem. This is what your fill hoses connect to on the back of your washer. It is an electric solenoid valve that is supposed to open when filling. However, sediments from hard water and well water have a tendency to clog them up to the point where they don't pass water any longer. Sometimes, the solenoid itself goes bad. A new valve usually runs about $20-$30. If you've checked your fill hoses and verified the household valves are working, then I recommend replacing the fill valve assembly in the washer. I hope this helps.

    If your timer isn't running on it's own then the timer is probably bad. There's a small timer motor that runs the various switches inside the dial. When the motor goes bad the timer does not advance. The motor is not serviceable and comes as part of an entire timer assembly. The timer is usually not cheap, either (anywhere from $100 to $200) Good luck.

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.

My fontloader samsung wassingmachene p843 giv me and error code e3 4e and5e


When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.

Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.


5E - WATER DRAIN ERROR

5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.



A "3E" error in a Samsung washer indicates that there is an issue with the motor. Restarting the cycle may clear the error, but a service technician should be consulted if the error code appears again.

The machine stopped with one minute left in the cylce and it won't re-start or allow me to push cancel/end cycle


I unplugged my machine and this reset it, but the filter in the machine needs to be cleaned and the hose in the back might also need cleaning. Clean the hose in the back first and then see if the machine will drain. Once it is drained you will need to clean the filter. It is in the front of the machine behind the access panel. It works best to prop the front of the machine on small boards. The three screw for the panel are on the bottom. Once these are removed you will see the plastic filter. Twist the cover off and clean the filter. WARNING: Have towels on floor before opening filter. Plenty of water will still be in the filter area.

Fowl odor in front loader


Clean out the small holes in the gray door gasket (at the bottom) to allow water to drain back into tub. Open access door at bottom left on front of machine, use small hose to drain remaining water from machine, remove and clean out filter there. Re-install. Run washer on the tub clean cycle if you have that cycle, or if not, use the longest, hottest cycle you can, but make sure to use a commercial washer cleaner like Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, etc., with no clothes in the washer. After cleaning tub, make sure you only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle if you use softener.
