UE Error Code for LG Washing Machines

If you are getting a UE error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know what is causing this code. This UE error code is caused when there is an unbalanced load condition sensed by the washing machine. There are a few things that can cause this and ways to correct it.

If you are doing a load of wash that is too small, this can allow all of the wash to be on one side of the drum. Single heavier items will not work well and will cause this error when spinning. Very light single items may work, but for heavier items you will need to add more to the load to get it to work properly.

If you have a load of heavier items like blankets, and sheets, you may have to stop the machine and spread them around the drum evenly before it will spin properly. Even jeans, shirts, and pillow cases can sometimes all end up on one side of the drum and cause it to become unbalanced. After spreading the items around the drum evenly, try to restart the spin cycle.

If you hear your washing machine slowing down and tumbling a few times when trying to spin, it may be that you machine has a option on it that tries to redistribute the load on its own if it senses an unbalanced load. The machine will try this a couple of times before it will stop and give you an error code.

If you need to reset the code at any time you can do this by unplugging the washing machine and then holding in the start/pause button for 5 seconds. Plug the washer back in and the code should be clear.

UE Error Code

The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

ue error code on the display

For "ue" an unbalanced load is sensed three times, re-adjust your load in the machine.

For e1, it could be a water sensor problem. Check to see if the inlet valve is okay and not clogged, water shd be in good pressure. If this is okay, open up behind after taking the plug off the wall. There is a thin tube coming from the switch area to the outlet pump area; disconnect this from the top carefully and blow into it, it should be free; if it is clogged you will hav a water level problem. Unblock and refit carefully.
