SOURCE: FE code water overfills due to faulty water valve

Water valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced.  The best way to check if the water valve is the problem is to remove the top cover, run the machine to get the water running.  While the water is filling, remove the connector to the water valve that is filling.  If the water continues to run without the connector, the valve needs to be replaced.  If the water stops flowing when disconnected, you may have a control board problem and will need it to be replaced.

SOURCE: FE code displays

Yes, the water valves are easy to locate and replace.  Just remove the top panel to get access to them.  There are 2 of them.  You need to know which one to replace before ordering the correct part from LG.

SOURCE: How do I remove the top of my LG WM2496HSM washer?

Code will not tell which is faulty. To remove top: after removing three phillips head screws (leaving the L shaped part attached to the top) slide the top back about one and a half inches and lift it straight up.

FE = Fill Error. Not a faulty water valve in your case. (FE codes if it takes too long to fill the machine, but if the water is leaking out, the valve is not the problem, the leak is) If you take the back cover off, you might be able to see where the water is comming from. Possibly the black rubber hose from the tub to the pump has a leak.

Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?


Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000010-20150140270078-other-error-codes

The site shows the following:

The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

1. Close both water taps.

2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

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.

"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,
edgin96
