Thanks for using FixYa. Error FE is an overflow error which indicates that the water is overflowing i.e. the water level frequency is over 213. To start with you’ll need to check the water inlet valve assembly and replace if it has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

I've got an LE code on the front of my washer

This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Hope this helps.

My washer is blinking upside down F and E. Manual

Error code looks like an upside down FE

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.

We have an LG Tromm WM2487HWM that has an upside down f and e error code. The machine will sometimes start and then quit after about a minute into the run. Unplugging and replugging in does not seem to...

We have the same problem on our washer - same model as yours. Home Depot has the warranty on this thank goodness we bought it. They replaced the motor and water pump - didn't fix the problem longer than a month. A new repairman has come out and says we need a new heater and thermistor (whatever that is - I checked - not a thermostat but possibly related??) Approx a $300 fix. Good luck.
