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.

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.

I have a lg front load washing machine model


There is most likely a blockage prenting all the water from draining out by the time the spin cycle starts. check drain hose and filter if there is one.

My Lg problem is FE?What Ihave to do?

Turn the water taps clockwise to close them and unplug the washer if "FE" or "PE" appears on the display. The "FE" error means the water valve is faulty and the washer is overfilling. "PE" means the water level sensor is faulty.

Hope helps.

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.

Moved washing machine and now it won't run


Sounds like a connection may have come loose in the move.

The top cover comes off fairly easily with the removal of some screws in the back. Once screws are removed, slide top cover toward back of washer and take a peek inside looking for loose/disconnected wires.

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.


You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

LG WM2487 Leak Front Left


Not sure if this machine is similar to the WM2277, but here is the procedure for that - my leak was in the "baffels" hose that connects the drum to the drain pump:

1. Drain the machine - pry the panel at the front left lower corner to get access to a stoppered tube. drain as much water from here as possible.
2. Remove screw visible inside this area and remove the white molded plastic - also remove the screw behind that plastic.
3. Open the washer door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door gasket. Carefully pull the door gasket away from the panel push inside and then reclose the door.
4. Remove the detergent drawer and the two screws visible behind it.
5. Pull the top of the electronics panel away from the machine and lift up - place on top of machine or hook it out of the way
6 Remove the 4 screws that are visible holding the front panel to the machine. Left the entire front panel up about 2 inches and swing to the right (there is a wire connecting the door to the machine on the right)

You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap and softner.

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
