Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

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 a service 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..

1. Remove or disconnect 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.

Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?


Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000010-20150140270078-other-error-codes

The site shows the following:

The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

1. Close both water taps.

2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

On my LG tromm washer has an error code FE, what is the solution to this problem or how do i get it fix???


The FE error or fault code indicates that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced.

LG front load washing machine WM2233H Error code is FE


I found this information on the internet. I hope that it helps.
" Getting fe code on lg washer.
"This means that the washer is overflowing. This is a built in fault that turns on the drain pump so that the water doesn't get so high that it gets into the floor. If water is continually flowing into the washer you will get this problem. If this is the case the water valve is most likely the problem. To confirm unplug the washer and if the water doesn't stop flowing into the washer the water valve is the problem.

Thank you,
Shawn"

I hope that this helps you out

I am getting fe error after the water fills in.it doesnt start washing. What to do?


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:

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
