That's a excessive water flow error. could be a sticking water inlet valve; defective water level sensor; or, a glitch in the main board.

    I doubt it might be a defective water level detection sensor. is this sensor part of PCB or a separate unit in Whirlpool 650H?

    Machine never detects the water level (irrespective of what I set, low, medium, high or very high) and never goes into wash mode. have to finally call up customer care so that a service engineer can have look at it. will update the solution if I found one. thanks

The FE error isn't common to all washers. In fact, I could only find information on it in relation to LG washers. I actually found this link here which explains it pretty well:

SOURCE: flashing FE and wont stop filling with water

FE means Fill Error, but you already figured that out. If you unplug the machine and it still fills, and the only way to stop the filling is to turn off the valves supplying the water to the fill hose(s), then you need to replace a fill valve. It is best to figure out which one by turning one off at a time while the machine is in that FE condition. There is a separate hot and cold valve. (they are the part that the hose screws onto on the machine.) To replace valve, cover comes off machine by removing two screws at the back of the top. (not the two which go into the top, the ones just below them) Then, standing in front of the machine, use the palms of your hands to give the top a sharp push to the rear to slide the top back about two inches. Then lift the top off.

I get error FE- book says unplug and call a tech. Is this something I can fix myself?


FE error means that the water is filling past it's set point. You may have a broken water valve that won't shut off when it's in the filling mode. You can check by running the washer and watching the water fill. If the water level fills above the bottom of the glass, you have a water valve that's not shutting off. Replace the water valve.

I have a LG washer model WM2487 H*M suddendly water started coming out from underneath and also the front panel shows a light saying FE....I read that means something about is due the faulty water...


FE = Fill Error. Not a faulty water valve in your case. (FE codes if it takes too long to fill the machine, but if the water is leaking out, the valve is not the problem, the leak is) If you take the back cover off, you might be able to see where the water is comming from. Possibly the black rubber hose from the tub to the pump has a leak.

Display code FE... what needs to be done


FE in an over fill error. (the pump should automatically come on to drain water) If the machine is not overfilling, check the thin hose that goes to the water level switch. If it is overfilling you will either need to replace the inlet water valve if it is filling with no power to the vavle, or the main control board if it is receiving power in the FE condtion.

"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,
