What does IE mean on LG washer? An IE error code indicates that the washer was not filled with water in the permitted time. This could be caused by a malfunctioning water entry valve or a drain hose issue, among other things. An IE error may also signal that the water from the water supply lines has frozen in certain cold and freezing weather conditions. As a result, as the temperature climbs above freezing, the water supply resumes normal operation.
Apart from that, there could be a variety of reasons why your LG washing machine displays an IE error number. Let’s look at some of the most common causes of the IE error in LG washing machines, as well as how to fix the IE error code:
Supply Taps That Are Closed
If a user does not fully open both the hot and cold water taps, an IE error code appears on the washer’s display. As a result, you should keep both the hot and cold water faucets fully open.
Inlet hoses that are kinked or damaged
If the washer’s intake hoses are kinked or broken, water does not flow properly into the washer. To solve the problem, you’ll need to straighten any bends in the water lines. In the event that the inlet hoses are damaged, you will need to replace them. You’ll also want to make sure the hot and cold water supply hoses are in good shape and haven’t been bent or damaged by hard water.
It’s possible that the inlet filters are clogged
Turn off the hot and cold water supply taps or valves in your home, as well as the washer’s water inlet hoses. Make sure you have a bucket or some other container to catch any remaining water that the hoses may release. Now you must inspect the inlet filters that are located on the washer’s valves for any mineral deposits or debris that may be obstructing them. If the filters on the inlet valves or hoses are blocked, they must be removed and carefully cleaned.
FloodSafe Hoses from a third party
It’s possible that the FloodSafe hoses you’re using aren’t compatible with your LG washer. Your machine’s inlet valve can open up very quickly to provide immediate water pressure. This could potentially cause the FloodSafe hose to shut down as if there was a leak, thereby cutting off the water supply. If the IE code persists after using the Floodsafe hoses or any other third-party hoses, your best option is to use the LG hoses that came with the washer.
