Laundry goes on hold when the washer displays an error code.

Cause

The "1E" error code occurs when the water has overflowed. This may be due to a mechanical problem, such as a water valve stuck in the open position, or an electrical malfunction.

Testing

Push in the control knob or press the stop button when the washer is filling with water. Pull the electrical plug if the water continues to fill. If the water stops after unplugging the washer, it's likely an electrical problem; if not, it's mechanical.

Solutions

Set the washer on the spin cycle to drain all of the water, then restart it. Replacement of the fill valve can correct a mechanical cause. If the problem continues, contact a service technician.

Warning

Home or third-party repairs to the machine may void any warranty you have on the washer. Contact the store from which you purchased it for warranty and service information.
