The LG washer IE code is a top load error code that indicates a problem with the washer's water inlet valve. This valve controls the flow of water into the washer, and if it isn't working properly, the washer will be unable to fill with water. The IE code can be caused by a number of things, including a clogged inlet valve, a faulty inlet valve, or a problem with the washer's water pressure. If you see the IE code, it's important to troubleshoot the problem so that you can get your washer up and running again.
