Error codes and malfunctions LG washing machines

LG washing machine logoWashing machines made under the LG brand have the ability to display an error code. Such codes occur during various breakdowns and any malfunctions. They carry information about what kind of malfunction interferes with the normal operation of the machine. And it is not rare that, having understood what the problem is, a person can solve it himself.

Of course, it is desirable to make repairs, guided by the correct instructions. Our site may serve as a similar instruction. It has a lot of information on self-repairing many malfunctions of washing machines.

In order to correctly interpret the error code of the LG typewriter (AlGi), we will provide you with an explanation table. We will introduce all kinds of errors into it. And in addition, we add useful information about the reasons for their appearance and brief recommendations on self-repair of the LG washing machine.

LG error codes

Code Interpretation Why did you get an error?
Ae Auto power off error No information is available on this issue.
CE An engine overload has occurred. This problem usually occurs when too much dirty laundry is loaded into the tank. As a solution, we offer the following:

  • Try to pull out part of the laundry (if there is really too much of it). And start the wash again.
  • If the previous action did not help and the CE error reappeared, then you should make sure that the electrical controller and the electric motor of the machine are working.
  • In direct-drive washing machines, this malfunction can also be identified by the jitter of the drum.
dE The washing machine hatch is locked
  • Usually, in order for the error to stop showing up, it’s enough to close the machine’s door more densely.
  • In the event that the repeated closing did not help, you need to make sure that the UBL (hatch blocking device) is working properly
  • And the fact that the electrical controller did not fail.
FE The washing machine tank is full of water. This error tells us that the tank is full of water to the maximum. This malfunction occurs for the following reasons:

  • The electrical controller has broken.
  • Faulty level switch.
  • The filling valve has become unusable.
E1 Water poured into the drip pan. That is, a leak has occurred. One of the reasons why this error occurred is a tank breakdown (its depressurization). Hoses, pipes and other parts could also become unusable. Also, leakage sensor breakage is not ruled out.
HE The heating element (TEN) has broken It is necessary to check the operability of the heating element. In the event of a malfunction, replace it with a new one. Also, the power supply circuit of the heater may turn out to be responsible for the breakdown.
IE Water does not fill or is filled very slowly. This code appears when the water level has not reached the first level in four minutes. There may be several reasons:

  • The filling valve could have deteriorated.
  • Or the pressure switch has broken, it's a level sensor.
  • The reason could be a very weak pressure of water in the water pipes.
  • If the water is turned off, this code may also occur.
OE Water does not drain from the tank. You can notice such a set of letters if five minutes after the pump for draining the water was started, the water remained in the tank of the machine.
  • Alternatively, a clogging of the drainage system is possible.
  • The pump itself (a drain pump) could also break.
  • In addition, the pressure switch (level sensor) could fail.
  • And a defect in the electronic controller might appear.
PE Error related to the level switch. It occurs when the water has not even reached the minimum level in 25 minutes. Or the tank filled up too quickly. Specifically, in four minutes. This could be due to:

  • Too high or vice versa low water pressure in the water pipes.
  • Damage to the level switch (pressure switch) is also possible.
UE Wrong drum balancing In some cases, to solve the problem, it is enough to shift the laundry inside the machine. Or to report more linen, in case it is not enough. If these actions did not help, you need to check the electrical controller and inspect the motor drive.
tE The problem with the temperature of the water in the machine This code appears when there are problems with the normal operation of the temperature sensor. That is, it can be broken due to open circuit, short circuit and other reasons.
E3 An error occurred while detecting the load on the washing machine No information is available on this issue.
SE Hall sensor malfunction This error occurs when there is a problem with the functioning of the Hall sensor. Simply put, he could have broken corny or his wires and connections were broken. This sensor is present only on machines with direct drive.
LE UBL error (sunroof locking device)
  • One of the options that explain the occurrence of such an error is too low voltage in the mains.
  • In addition, it is worth making sure that the electric motor and electronic controller are in good condition.

  2. Gravatar sergey Sergei:

    • Gravatar maxim050 maxim050:

      This inscription occurs when the machine itself begins to drain the water. Either the hose is connected incorrectly, or there is a problem in the breakdown of the tank. Try to get a hose from the sewer and hang it from the bathtub, sink or toilet.

  12. Gravatar Nina Nina:

    I have a machine LG 5.5 years. And the parents are the same. But the other model is already 11 years old. Both 1 and 2 have 1 strangeness. From the very beginning, when washing for 1 hour 24 minutes, 54-57 minutes, 7 minutes — at this time they have an oddity — they wash, but time stands still !!! And so it can go on for about 30 minutes. Once it got stuck for an hour, and then it just jumped suddenly for 54 minutes (something like this should have been if it were showing exactly in time b). And there it just often freezes and erases. The cars were new, the models are different, but the strangeness is the same. And her daughter still loves to jump. Just adjust, some erase normally, but then bam and jumps like bad. What is wrong with them?

    • Gravatar Vovan Vovan:

      TEN burned out, (max. Washing temperature 60g.). Jumps - at the old shock absorber check, load correctly and fully tighten the legs.

Each time you press the keys, the timer increases, while the timer button itself does not respond to the press. Tell me what to do and what is the reason? The machine is located on the express service in Eldorado. Does it make sense to wait for a master from Eldorado with a certificate or call a paid master? I don’t imagine life without a washing machine!
