It seems that the Main Control Board of your washing machine is playing up. The fact that when you unplug the machine from the mains, the main control board resets itself and you are able to start the machine points in this direction.
We had a problem like this with our whirlpool duet washer and we found out that the drain filter was restricted by of all things one of our kids socks. I cleaned out the filter and have not had the problem again so far and its been about a year now. The filter on ours was behind a little door that screws open and is in the drain line.
not just yet? still need to check other items? the timer, the push start? etc buying a new board may not solve ur issue less ur sure of the cause, the door actuator may be stuck closed however cant see how it would effect the start staying continually on so I would check both out at the least
You have a fault microprocessor, or the "Brain" is sporadically faulting... You need to get this looked at... it isn't a minor thing unfortunately... look get a firm "Quote" from a reliable service center man
We have a front-loading LG washer. Today, I took a look at it when it
was beginning the spin cycle because it sounded a bit different. I
noticed that it was beginning to spin and would stop because [I
believe] it was detecting a strong off-balance. It would then try to
spin in the opposite direction and the same happened. After two more
attempts, it automatically shut off with no warning nor error. We set
the washer to wash and spin again and I began to work on balancing it.
After adjusting the feet and waiting for the spin cycle again, it
continued successfully because of the reduced off-balance. I'm not sure
if there are other reasons that would cause the washer to turn off. This is the only one I have come across so far.
If your washer fills with water, usually slowly, after the cycle is over you have a inlet water valve which is not shutting off completely. LG usually uses a separate valve for the hot and cold. If you turn off the valve where the hose comes from the house and observe for continued water fill, first one, the reopen it, then shut off the other you should be able to see which (hot or cold) is the culprit. If you post your exact model number I should be able to list the part numbers for you. The inlet valves I am speaking of are the part where the hoses connect onto your machine.
FE is Fill Error. If door is closed and washer is plugged in, FE means water is too high and water pump will turn on.
This happens most often when a water fill valve will not shut off completely, allowing water to continue to fill washer, sometimes very slowly. If you shut off one valve (where the hose comes from the household plumbing) at a time you may be able to tell which valve is the culprit. The hot is a single coil valve, the cold is a multi coil valve. Both are the part where the hoses connect onto the machine.
To access valves, remove 3 phillips head screws at the back of the washer holding the top cover in place. Slide the top back about two inches and lift it off.
