Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
I have a lg wm1832 front load washer that gives me an error code of fs. Can you help me with this problem.
Kinda figured there was a miscue there with your error code however... the error code FE refers to the fact that water is overflowing ( normally means the inlet water valve is stuck open and continues to let in water beyond the expected and/or sensed level.. so the water pump turns on to drain it and keep the level down. This kind of problem would probably warrant a aservice call from a tech since the majority of troubleshooting would require diagnosing the failed component itself and is not something that I recommend you try. There are too many pieces of hardware that have a direct impact on how this works and I highly doubt you want to play the shotgun approach..try this to see if it fixes the problem and if not..try that...
Before calling for service.. try this..
remove or disconect ac power from the washer..let it sit unplugged for at least an hour..then try washing 1 towel at the lowest cold water setting to see if that works ..if it does..repeat the process using only hot water.. if that works... then try the same test using warm water.. ( this test may help determine if the water inlet valve .,.either hot or cold is leaking through it)... If you still get the FE test..call for service.. That's the best I can offer via this chanel... BTW..if only one of the two tests fails.. ( Hot water only generates an FE error.. then chances are the hot water inlet solenoid valve assembly is either sticking open or the controls to that are commanding it to remain open... Hope that helped you..'

I am not sure how to interpret your response when you say "it is the hot water that is the problem cold is fine" When you say it is the hot water that is the problem..are you saying that when you run a hot water cycle only that you get an overfill condition which in turn cuses an FE error? Did you swap the hoses to teh inlet valves on the back of the washer and the problem stayed on the same side ( meaning that if the problem showed up as the hot water wash over-filling when you ran a hot water load, you got an overfill condition when you ran a hot water fill again but with the cold water hose connected to teh hot water side of the washer?) What I am getting at is ..is the problem ( regardless of what temp you set your wash at) consistent with the cold or hot water inlet valve? If it is,,, then you have bypass water leaking thru that valve.. which could be the valve itself is damaged, contaminated with foreign materal so that it cannot close all the way or the conmtrol circuit is not commanding it closed when it should be... So my friend.. those are a few questions I have for you to mull over and get back to me.. It looks like we are getting close to solving the problem thou.. Get back to me when you can with your findings..

Here is a link to get the service manual with ALL the LG error codes for your washer.. It does not show FS as an error code however.. perhaps you are misreading the display. Ifthat's the case..this manual will help troubleshoot your problem.. Good luck
