LG Front Load Washing Machine Error Code = EE
The EE error code on your LG washer means there is an EEPROM error on main control board.
The EEPROM on the LG washer control board has become unstable or technically “corrupt”.
EEPROM stands for “Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory”
Here is how to repair or fix the EE error code on your LG front load washer:
1 – Unplug the washer from power for 10 minutes to attempt to CLEAR THE CORRUPTED MEMORY on the main control board.
NOTE: You can try unplugging the washer multiple times to attempt to clear the corrupt memory. Unplugging the LG washer with the EE error code may clear the error code and no other action is required. The washer memory will be cleared or reset and the EE error code is considered fixed or repaired.
2 – If the code does not clear on the washer after unplugging it multiple times, this means the main electronic control board is faulty and needs to be removed and replaced.
3 – To be sure the main control board is the problem, run a TEST MODE if you want to continue the troubleshooting process or just replace the main control board and that will fix the EE error issue.
