Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
The upside down F is actually a lower case t. The fault code indicates a faulty thermistor.(temperature sensor) The first step in troubleshooting is to unplug the unit for 10 sec. plug in turn on and select rinse/spin mode and no spin option to drain the water.If this does not solve the problem you will be directed to a service company.

I had this code "upside down F E" and the problem was the Thermistor. I replaced it myself and it was a piece of cake. Here is a link to the part I bought. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Thermistor/6322FR2046C/1268202
It only cost 8.00 and took me 15min to replace.

The error code FE refers to the fact that water is overflowing ( normally means the inlet water valve is stuck open and continues to let in water beyond the expected and/or sensed level.. so the water pump turns on to drain it and keep the level down. This kind of problem would probably warrant a aservice call from a tech since the majority of troubleshooting would require diagnosing the failed component itself and is not something that I recommend you try. There are too many pieces of hardware that have a direct impact on how this works and I highly doubt you want to play the shotgun approach..try this to see if it fixes the problem and if not..try that...
Before calling for service.. try this..
remove or disconect ac power from the washer..let it sit unplugged for at least an hour..then try washing 1 towel at the lowest cold water setting to see if that works ..if it does..repeat the process using only hot water.. if that works... then try the same test using warm water.. ( this test may help determine if the water inlet valve .,.either hot or cold is leaking through it)...
If you still get the FE test..call for service..
BTW..if only one of the two tests fails.. ( Hot water only generates an FE error.. then chances are the hot water inlet solenoid valve assembly is either sticking open or the controls to that are commanding it to remain open.

SOURCE: error code upside down FE
I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. You can search for the meaning of
the error code on the site.Don't worry about the
timer, they hardly ever go bad.Good luck with it.
If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
