I have a LG top loading washing machine. The unit takes a long time to fill and go through the wash cycle. When it gets to the rinse and spin cycle the water comes out tremendously slower. It runs water at at a trickle for about a minute then I get an error code 1E. The filters have been cleaned and the hoses are not kinked. When the wash cycle begins the water comes out very fast but then you hear a noise like a valve is partially closing and the water slows down quite a bit. Does anyone know if this is a pressure sensor issue or the inlet valves or both.

Hi,

Are you sure that error code is 1E not IE?

IE is a Inlet Error problem. Which is a slow fill problem. The problem would be the water inlet valve. You'd need to replace the water inlet valve to fix it.

When you click the part link to it below, you will see a video on how to replace it.:)

Here's the water inlet valve for your model you can order:
Water Inlet Valve AJU75152601


Let us know how it goes.

Hi Jake,
I replaced the water inlet valve and the pressure switch for the tub at the same time. The washer performs like new again. Thanks for your help. It is very much appreciated.
