Hello again annasgsds,
An FE error code signifies "excess error" meaning excessive water is supplied ..more than normal.. possible cause are the inlet valve ( which I made reference to in my previous response of the controller itself is damaged or defective. In either case.. LG recommends to replace the inlet valve or the controller once diagnostics are completed and you've identified which of the two components may be at fault. Could be either but before replacing the control card, I would remove and clean the inlet valve to see if that was clogged or dinged up and unable to fully close.
Regards,
Rick

Getting FE error saw a answer for this model on fixya said to clean the float module where no plastic float on bottom of washer


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. If the error persists even after the water inlet valve has been replaced there may be a problem with the main control circuit board

there is a removeable filter at the bottom of the wash pan. It is usually a "screw-in" type of ring. See if this website can help..

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code


Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

LG dishwasher LDF6920ST - Power button lights up but the cycle buttons stopped working so the unit wont turn on to wash. The Power Scrub cycle button seems to be pressed down farther than the other...


Hi Mark.

Modern LG appliances retain settings even after you disconnect the power cord. The machine is reset opening the door and then pressing and holding the Normal and Delicate buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.

You can also try running the test mode shown at page 12 of the service manual.

If the machine is non responding and there is no code on display, then the problem is likely control module or control pad. Since the control pad looks defective, that is probably the part to replace.

Disassembling is shown in exploded view and service manual available using the links below:


Parts and diagrams are available here.

A copy of the service manual covering several LD models has been uploaded here.

I have a whirlpool DU1145 dishwasher that seems to be stuck on the same cycle. It shows it as sensing and washing at the same time and never shuts off. HELP! WHat could becausing this??


Sounds like your Touch Pad on the Control Panel is defective.

You can try and remove the 120 Volt AC power from the Dishwasher by turning it off at your Main Electrical Power Panel with the Circuit Breaker (15 or 20 amp) labeled: Dishwasher .

Leave the Dishwasher turned "Off" for 10 minutes. This will allow the control circuits on the Dishwasher to reset. Turn on the Dishwasher and press Cancel and attempt to Drain the Dishwasher. If this works...then try to enter a Rinse Only cycle and if that works... then attempt to enter a Wash Cycle.

If you still have your original problems then you probably have a defective:
(1) Touch Pad Assembly (or possibly a defective)
(2) Electronic Control Module (ECM)
