If you pressure switch only has 3 contacts you can jump it but most newer ones have 5 or 8 contacts and you can't really do it.. just need to replace it.

What does it mean when it says PE on my lg wm0642hw washing machine


The PE error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

Hi I have a lg fuzzy logic wf-1022tp top loader. When I switch it on it says PE pings whole time please HELP


PRESSURE SENSOR ERROR // Water level pressure switch error
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

Hi i have a lg washing machine wft8061dd,can u please tell me why PE appear when it turn on


Water level sensor fault This fault code is fairly self-explanatory and tells you that the washing machine has detected an error with the pressure sensor or pressure switch. It is rare to see this error code on LG washers.
On non-display panel models this fault code can be shown by the lights for fuzzy, heating and speedy or super, normal and hold being lit or flashing.
  • Check water level sensor
  • Check wiring to water pressure sensor
  • Check connections to water level sensor
  • Check main electronic controller

Error code 13. Turned water on to machine and it leaked.


Try this link

it says the following:
E13 Condition Water leak in the tub or air leak in pressure-switch air hose Check/Repair The washer fills for too long without the water level pressure switch tripping to indicate that the washer is full. Check for a leak in the wash tub. If the tub is not leaking, check to see if the washer is overfilling. If it is, check the air hose and water-level pressure switch for problems.

What is error code FE on LGWM2455HG


Hello,
The FE code is a overflow code. This can indicate a bad pressure switch but more likely just a clogged pressure switch hose. Remove the top of the machine and locate the pressure switch. It will be the part with the surgical looking hose connected to it. disconnect the hose and be sure it is not clogged. If it is clear replace the pressure switch. Good Luck.

Machine overfilling


You need to check the pressure switch and tube wich you can access from the top of the machine with the top removed. the tube is a rubber pipe which may have fallen of the switch or pressure chamber connection. cheers
