    Default LG top load Washer WT1101CW drains as it fills. Drain pump stays on. IE error

    Model Number: WT1101CW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    LG washer has plenty of water coming in but it continues to drain as it loads. I checked the hose for siphoning but also noticed the drain pumps always seems to be turned on. As soon as I power up I hear the drain pump working. Before it would be quiet when I would power up.

    How can I fix this? Do I need a new drain pump?

    Hi,

    Here's the parts diagram for your model: LG Washer WT1101CW Repair Parts

    Here's the service manual: https://drive.google.com/open?id=19Q...wPrOJfFNhHSQoM

    Look on page 31 it shows you error code IE and what to check to resolve it.

    For the drain pump staying ON all the time, it sounds like your drain pump relay on the control board is stuck closed, meaning it keeps the drain pump running at all times.

    Here's the control board for your model:
