    There are no leaks anywhere and just stops with the error.

    What do I need to do to fix it?

Actually, the Lg has a flow switch sensor and no pressure switch (on some models). flow switch is defective or somehow wet at its connector. also check to see if pump motor is not stuck

The level switch usually a two-or three inch plastic floating device on the base of the dishwasher that looks like a rounded tube. You should be able to pull the top up and down freely otherwise it may be clogged. If you listen closely, you may be able to hear the microswitch inside click as the unit is moved up and down.

Samsung model wa 7584C1. has 1E error code have changed pressure switch and tub hose still shows the same error please help


IE - Water level sensor fault This fault code is fairly self-explanatory and tells you that the washing machine has detected an error with the pressure sensor or pressure switch
  • Check water level sensor
  • Check wiring to water pressure sensor
  • Check connections to water level sensor
  • Check main electronic controller

    If you are getting the IE fault code or error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know why you are getting that code and what do you need to do to fix the problem.

    You get this code if you have a LED model

    You get this code if you have and LCD model
    2893128.jpg


    This error code is caused when the washing machine does not fill up with water in about eight minutes. The washing machine gives its self eight minutes to reach the right water level. If there is a problem that keeps the water from entering fast enough the machine will shut down and give the IE error or fault code.

    The most likely problem that will cause this fault or error code is that the water hose screens are plugged with dirt and debris. Most all washing machines have some type of water filter in the hoses or in the machine at the entering point for the water. Dirt and debris will build up in these filters till in restricts the water flow enough to cause this problem.

    The other cause for this error is if you happen to reverse the hoses. If the cold water hose is on the hot side and the hot is on the cold side it can also cause to alarm. If the filters look clean then check the location of the hoses and make sure that they are properly connected.

    Check that the water valves where the hoses connect to the domestic water supply are on completely. Some valves are difficult to tell if they are completely on or not.

    If you need to reset your washing machine fault or error codes you can do this by unplugging the machine and then holding the start/pause button for five seconds. Then plug the machine back in and the code should be removed.

    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.

    Why do i have low water pressure into the washer - error code ie?


    if you can hear full water flow into the appliance then it could be that the pressure switch is faulty, the pressure tube has a hole in it or has disconnected from the switch. IE or "inlet error" means that the appliance has failed to register the water level after a predetermined time.

    I have a LG fuzzy logic the problem is that its not stopping the water input its over flowing ....


    When you press the "SPIN SPEED" button and "SOIL LEVEL" button the water level frequency should be above 246. If the water frequency level fails to reach 246 in 8 minutes you will get an IE error or inlet error. You would need to check the water valve, water pressure, etc.
    How does the machine know if the water level is complete? Water level switch right? So obviously the control is timing the amount of time it takes till the water level switch kicks off. If it takes more than 8 minutes we have a problem don't we? Therefore if something is partially blocking the tubing from tub to switch that might throw off the water level switch. It is located on the main control assembly and has the rubber tube connected to it. The control board uses this to determine water frequency level. Just blowing the sediment out of that tubing will cure the IE error IF everything else mentioned is all good. I meself would do that first before replacing any parts.

    Your machine has a fault with the water level contoller switch - pressure switch that activates when water reaches the level set . So check the water level controller and test. If not the fault can be with the program controller unit.

    Error code ( IE ) on my samsung washing machine model wa13g7q1


    1E - WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR

    * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

    Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
    Low Level = 30.00 Khz
    High Level = 15.00 Khz

    If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.
