What does IE error code on LG front loader mean

    If you move the washer forward away from wall, you can close the water valves at the wall and unplug the hoses from the back of the wahser. You will need a set of needle noses to pull and remove the inlet screen filters. The screens filter out larer debris from old rusty pipes. Remove them and run some waterto clean the screen. You can use a toothbrush to brush lightly and get a really clean screen. Next, reinsert the screen and reconnect the hose. Follow the same operations for the hot side. Error should go away..... i have pics available but, I don't see a way to upload.

"IE" is an error code that indicates a water inlet problem on an LG washing machine. This code will appear if the washer is not filled to the correct level within eight minutes after switching it on. Possible causes for the IE code include partially closed taps, improperly attached inlet hoses or clogged inlet hose filters.

    I have bought LG front load Direct drive few days back, I am getting the IE error codes, what I am doing is when I put clothes turn on the water TAP and turn on washing machine, when I put to quick 30 mode it should complete all 3 modes in 30 min . but give IE error codes after sometimes.

    can you tell me proper usage of it. means should I let the washer to fill with water for 8 min. then I should on the washing machine, how should I go.

    And the water tap should be kept on till completing washing procedure fully. then turning off the water tap, does the washing machine closed water supply automatically.

    please tell me solution, of proper usage

    thanks

    Just got a new LG top load today and already giving the IE error code. The problem caused a very low flow going to the cold water inlet, probably a bad shut off valve. Temporary i fixed the problem by installing a Y connector to the hot water side and hooked both inlet hoses to it. I know i'm only using hot water for the wash for now until i get the cold water shut off valve fix. So check the flow of each side by disconnecting the hose from the washer then put that end into a bucket and turn on the water, if the water is slow ,trickling then the machine will likely to give the IE error code.

Hi,

Already answered by an expert :-

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Thanks.

"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.

Lg top loader ie error message, fills ok, but water running out of bottom of machine


Hi IE means Inlet Error. The machine thinks that it is not filling (as a certain time has passed without reaching level it wants).
This makes sense if water is running out the bottom.
You will need to find the leak. Maybe the tub to pump hose, or the drain pump itself. Once you stop the leak and the machine can fill in the correct amount of time, you shouldnt see the IE error any longer.

The front loader for lg washer won't drain


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

IE error code, machine keeps on draining


It sounds like the flood switch in the bottom of the washer is activated. check for water in the base as the machine if maybe leaking. This is a Dishwasher?

The manual suggests to shut the water off ,
remove the inlet hose and check the screen for blockage.
The ie message is the inlet water is insufficient.
