    I have a WFT-8501TP (LG). Had the error code PE as well. I used the method found on here, remove, blow. It worked but it also came back on after a few cycle. I called LG Canada (am in Vancouver BC). LG Canada said they didn't even know such a product (parts) code existed.

Model: WFT8501

Country: Canada



Error Code: PE



I am new to this forum. I followed the suggestion above and blew down the clear, plastic tube, and turned on machine, and walllla, it worked. My wife was amazed. Can\'t thank this forum enough and all the people who posted suggestions and helpful hints.



My machine was working just fine two days ago. Today, it showed PE code and it showed right at the get-go, no water, nothing worked, just PE and the beeping sound.



Hope this helps.



1. Unplugged the machine. Meaning not connected to the wall sockets.

2. I took two screws in the front off

3. I took two screws in the back off.



4. Forgot to unscrew the hose connecting to my sink. So I did that.

5. For my machine, model number above, the round unit is located on the far left side, left to me as I am standing and working from behind the machine.

6. The unit is round, perfectly round, and it is about 2 inches big, maybe 2.5 inches. It is connected to a plug, when unplugged, there are three wires.

7. The unit is sorta loose. This tells me there must be an easy way to remove it.

8. On top of the unit, there appears to be a screw, and it looks plastic-like. I initially wanted to use my screw driver on it, glad I didn\'t.

9. Look closely at the rounded part, it should have three tiny plastic (the whole thing is made of plastic and the ring around it, is also plastic), but upon closer inspection, you will find three little plastic groves, that is designed to hold the unit in place, I bent the plastic parts back, there are three but I only needed to do to two of the plastic prongs and that is all is required to pull the round unit (Pressure Sensor) right up and away.

10. Unit is connected by plastic, clear hose and maybe some other wires, so you can lift it up but not completely, as it is still tied down.

11. You will see a small metal clip, that holds the plastic tube to the Pressure Sensor, use small needle nose. Remove plastic hose, blow down it. Put it back.

12. I didn\'t even put the back cover back on. Just wanted to make sure it works first.

13. I did put the two screws in the front back though. After all the machine will be spinning and doing things at high speed.

14. As I write this, I can hear my beautiful LG humming in the background.



Again, with gratitude. Glad I found the answer and glad I joined this community. Will be posting more in the future.

My lg fuzzy logic shows PE


The PE or pressure sensor error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

I get an error code PE on Samsung washer WA5451washer


PE error code is a pressure sensor code, and more than likely the sensor will need to be replaced. Try unplugging the unit for about 5 minutes and see if it will clear it out. If not, will need to replace pressure switch and hose (switch looks like a little UFO under the console, pretty easy job.

WhirlPool PE Error


PE error relates to the fill level of the washing machine. The fill level sensor is a pressure operated device. There is a sealed air line that goes from the bottom of the tub to an air pressure sensor. As the tub fills, it compresses the air in this air pressure sensor. When the tub is filled to the level selected on the dial, the sensor stops the fill cycle.

This air line can be plugged or the sensor itself can be faulty. This air pressure sensor is usually located near the top of the tub just under the top cover.
