Hi,
"FE" means Fill Error. 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
separatehot 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.
Thank you !!

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.

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.

Code fe


FE Over Flow Error

Water is overflowing (water level frequency is over 213).

If FE is displayed, the drain pump will operate to drain the water automatically.

(may be too much suds ...)

WM2277HW Service Manual HERE...

Or

Locate your service manual behind the kick panel of the machine.

FE means overflow condition.

Before replacing the fill valve sand or trash may have gotten into the tube going from tub to water level switch.

So find that hose and blow it out. Remove the standing water and retry.

My LG washer TROMM displays the code FE what does that mean?


Overflow error.
Water level frequency is over 213
If FE is displayed the drain pump will kick in to prevent flooding.
Might be a bad water valve OR it could be a clogged water pressure tubing (from tub to control)

Our LG model WM2032HW intermittently show up with th FE code what could be wrong and can it be fixed by us?


FE error code means water is overflowing. The water is over 8 level.When FE is displayed, the drain pump will operate to drain water automatically. Otherwise the pressure switch assembly is malfunctioning. Check and replace if necessary. Part number is 6600FA1704X.
The pressure switch assembly shuts off the water inlet valve when the desired water level is reached. It then activates the drain pump when the water inlet valve is not deactivated.

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 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.
