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.

FE code on LG washer.


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.
