Question about LG Washing Machines

1 Answer

Have an LG FRONT LOADER WASHING MACHINE THAT IS OVERFILLING

It fills with water washes spins and drains , but near the end of the cycle it overfills and comes up with error FE which I presume is filling error . Have read that it could be the pressure switch / hose . Got hold of a used pressure switch off a different model and it does the same thing only this time it lets even more water in and fails to pump all the water away . Think it may have came off another LG model as it was very slightly different . If I got hold of the right part would that fix it or could it be a faulty circuit board ? Or something else ?? Thankyou Mark

Make sure that you get the correct pressure switch and also check that the rubber hose that comes off the tub onto the pressure switch is completely clean inside. Any gunk that prevents the pressure build up in the tub, when water is being taken on, from going up the pipe to the switch will cause an overflow error FE.
This could also be a faulty water inlet valve, but more likely the switch.

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.

Hi, I have a Hotpoint Aquarious washing machine (UK). It has developed a leak and seems to be overfilling however it does stop filling. Hope you can help.


I can not see the entire front of your machine, are you sure its over filling? I use a front loader also, at the bottom of my front loader is a small door, when I open it there is a drain pipe inside, sometimes the drain needs to be cleared. I am hoping this is your issue and that this is a quick fix for you.
If not, you can check the back of your washer where your water hose connects to washer. Inside the hook up is a screen (on your washer) sometimes these become clogged due to mineral deposits in the water.

How much water do I use when using a front loader say 5 items of clothes with 3 large towels and two sweater


many front loader washing machines don't have different water level options since they cycle the water differently than the "tub-o-soap" upright washers. The best answer I can give, if there are different fill settings, is to put the laundry in the machine and see how full it looks. Err on the side of overfilling, since the towels will soak up a lot of the water, and unless the sweaters are delicate or inclined to stretch out badly, I'd opt for an extra spin cycle to get rid of the excess water soaked up by the towels and sweaters.

Display code FE... what needs to be done


FE in an over fill error. (the pump should automatically come on to drain water) If the machine is not overfilling, check the thin hose that goes to the water level switch. If it is overfilling you will either need to replace the inlet water valve if it is filling with no power to the vavle, or the main control board if it is receiving power in the FE condtion.

Washer is overfilling & leaking


Are you using front loader only detergent?(oversudsing) Overfilling is either a pressure switch, or pressure chamber is blocked(located toward underside of outer bowl approx 6 inches long) this is only in older machines with extensive cold washes.

GE washer does not agitate. Water does not stop filling.


If it does not agitate at all, then it is either the motor, the clutch/motor control or the agitator.

If the machine start agitating only when you advance manually the control knob, and at the same time is overfilling, that is probably because of the problem with the water inlet valve, or the water level switch, and that is also cusing the cycle to stop.
