Error Code FE

I have a WM2277HB and the water does not turn off even when the machine is turned off. When turned on it continually runs a cycle never stopping. The error code is FE. Does anyone have any suggestions, clues?

Has anyone ever had this problem - if so what needs to be done. I have laundry to the ceiling HELP!!!

As a temporary workaround, until you repair/replace the valve - you can shut the water off at the tap. Frequently, that will get the water valve in the machine to shut off, and when you reopen the tap the water won't be running (until the next time the machine wants to fill). You can babysit the machine, shutting off the water when necessary, and it will eventually wash your load.

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.

Halfway into wash cycle fe code appears, we can select drain & spin cycle and it will finish. how do we fix


The FE error code indicates an Over Flow Error. The machine thinks that the water level is too high in the tub.

There could be three causes to this problem.
1. The water level sensor is bad.
2. One of the solenoids is bad, either hot or cold.
3. The main circuit board is bad.

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.

"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,

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.
