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.

The FE code is an excessive water supply if the water is continuously running into the machine it may be due to a failing inlet valve or stuck float switch since you mentioned the drain pump filter being changed it could be that the old filter was restricting the flow.

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.

In display shown FE


"FE" error code - over flow error
-Check water conection
-Check Water valve for proper operation

When the "FE" error code is displayed the drain pump will be turned on to pump the water out of the washing machine. LG Washing Machine Error Codes

This error code comes up when there is a over flow condition. The error is coming up because a part inside the washer has failed. I suspect the water valve on the back may be the culprit, it's fairly common.

Hope helps.

Code fe


FE Over Flow Error

Water is overflowing (water level frequency is over 213).

If FE is displayed, the drain pump will operate to drain the water automatically.

(may be too much suds ...)

WM2277HW Service Manual HERE...

Or

Locate your service manual behind the kick panel of the machine.

FE means overflow condition.

Before replacing the fill valve sand or trash may have gotten into the tube going from tub to water level switch.

So find that hose and blow it out. Remove the standing water and retry.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My LG washer TROMM displays the code FE what does that mean?


Overflow error.
Water level frequency is over 213
If FE is displayed the drain pump will kick in to prevent flooding.
Might be a bad water valve OR it could be a clogged water pressure tubing (from tub to control)

Washer has water still in drum and OE on digital readout


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a drain error, it flashes when the washer won’t drain within 10 minutes. TO resolve this issue you’ll have to check the drain pump filter for any clogs, also check the drain hose for any kinks and clean the drain pump filter. If still the issue is not resolved then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Our LG model WM2032HW intermittently show up with th FE code what could be wrong and can it be fixed by us?


FE error code means water is overflowing. The water is over 8 level.When FE is displayed, the drain pump will operate to drain water automatically. Otherwise the pressure switch assembly is malfunctioning. Check and replace if necessary. Part number is 6600FA1704X.
The pressure switch assembly shuts off the water inlet valve when the desired water level is reached. It then activates the drain pump when the water inlet valve is not deactivated.

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
