The water overfills due to a faulty water valve. The valve needs to be replaced.

    How can I replace the valve? Is it a valve inside the machine? If so, can I just order the valve and replace it myself or do I need to get an LG repairman out here? Some additional details will help me fix my washer :) In the past, I've just turned off the power and restarted the machine, which worked fine. This time, no such luck :)

    This just happened to me and I was able to get the door to unlock. Then I removed about half of the clothing and restarted the wash machine. It is working perfectly:)

On my LG tromm washer has an error code FE, what is the solution to this problem or how do i get it fix???


The FE error or fault code indicates that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced.

My LG front loader is showing an "FE" error. The water seems to continue running into the tub, leaking out the door.


Good morning

I looked this up to make sure I was thinking the right way. The FE means there is too much water in the machine... lol bet you already knew that. Since water is actually coming out of the machine it looks like a bad fill valve. The plastic piece your hot and cold water lines hook into is not shutting off all the way.

I hope this helps

Good morning, we have a LG Tromm front loader that started giving us some problems last night. It seems as it will not shut off, the water is continually filling in the machine, and it keeps draining. ...


"FE" means (no surprise here) "Overflow error. The water is automatically pumped out because there has been an overflow.

Since this condition clearly demonstrates that the water level sensor is working fine and doing its job, the very likely culprit is the water inlet valve. You may be locky and find that of you take the valve out, there is an ovstruction in it (sometimes a bit of grit gets trapped in the valve holding it open. More likely, the valve is failing and not shutting once it has opened. You may then need to replace it.

My LG washer TROMM displays the code FE what does that mean?


Overflow error.
Water level frequency is over 213
If FE is displayed the drain pump will kick in to prevent flooding.
Might be a bad water valve OR it could be a clogged water pressure tubing (from tub to control)

I have the LG Tromm 27'' Front Loader model WM2277HW


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

"FE" error code; won't stop filling


Hello Sheri Tucker,

The "FE" code is referring to a bad or malfunctioning water valve. The machine continues to fill because the solenoid on the valve inside the machine isn't closing to stop the water. The valve should be inspected and/or replaced if bad. This will require some dis-assembly, if washing machine repair isn't something your comfortable with then a service call is the best bet. If you are going to try and inspect yourself please make sure you unplug the machine before starting any dis-assembly. Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Error message displayed on LG tromm washer model # wmt2778w


Flashing UE - The display shows:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance detection and correction system. If individual heavy articles are loaded (bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the imbalance is too great, the washer will make several attempts to restart the spin cycle. If an imbalance is still detected, the washer will stop and the error code will be
displayed.

Possible Solution
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.
• Control error.
