IE means inlet error. The washer did not detect the normal amount of water flowing into the machine in the expected time.

If no water enters the drum, check if the shut-off valves were opened. If a small amount of water flows into the washer, check the water pressure to the washer and the inlet hoses and the debris filters in some hoses/washers. (Filters can clog. Anti-flood hoses can limit the water flow through them when they start to fail.) To check this, grab a bucket. Turn off the shut-off valves and take the hoses off the back of the washer. Drain the hoses into the bucket. Check the filter at the inlet valve on the washer. Before replacing the hoses, test the water flow by opening the shut-off valves one at a time. (Turn off the valves and remove the hoses from the shut-off valves. Check for debris in a filter there.) When you replace the hoses, make sure that they are straight and do not have any sharp twists or bends in them. If you hear the water flow and then drain out, make sure that the drain hose isn't positioned below the normal fill level of the washer.

You can also get this message if there is a problem with the pressure switch that determines how much water is in the drum. Frequently the problem is dirt clogging the air tube. This debris might move out of the air tube if you blow into it. Other possible causes are that the inlet valve is not be opening, bad wiring between the pressure switch or inlet valve and the control board or the electronic control board is faulty. Faulty parts will need to be replaced.

Please add a comment with the model number of the LG smart drum, if you'd like me to search for the parts diagram for your unit. If the unit is under warranty, contact LG. I hope this helps.

Hi Penny

I am 66 years old as well and recently retired. All is good in my life :>)

The IE Error is a water supply problem. Can be frozen pipes, but most likely a blockage in the strainers where the supply hoses go into the machine.

Turn off the home's hot and cold water supply taps/valve. Remove the water inlet hoses from the washer. Ensure to have a bucket to drain the remaining water from the hoses. Check the inlet filters on the inlet valves of the washer, inspect for any mineral deposits or other debris that may be clogging them.May 10, 2018

SOURCE: drum does not spin

We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$).  So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards.  We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake.  Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.

On final spin of my 10 year old LG washer we get a loud humming doing from the drum.


If under your washing machine there is a trace from the water (rust, water stains) or just a loud noise then you need to replace the drum bearings.

Machine won't spin...everything else working


Hi,


LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.


Thank you !!

Our LG Dryer DLG0332W is about 5 years old and now I have to manually turn the barrel around to get the dryer to start; otherwise when you hit the start button it just buzzes and doesn't start. What do...


the dryer has Defective Drum Glides/Rollers.
The dryer drum rests and spins on a set of rollers and/or drum glides. The glides and rollers provide low friction contact points that allow the drum to turn easily. When the glides and rollers become worn they can cause the drum to drag. The dryer might only spin without a load or only when assisted.
Hope this helps.

Uneven Flopping Noise


The drum has a broken weld and needs to be replaced.  Call LG to grant a one time extended warranty to address this issue.  This is a defect problem with their drums.
