Question about LG Dishwashers
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
FE is a fill error. This can be cause by a problem with the water supply, the inlet water valve, the Float sensor or the Flood sensor. Check the float sensor usually in the front left or center positon of the tub. It should lift and drop for a distanct of about 3/8 inch. If they get coated with food stuffs on the stem they stick. The flood sensor is usually mid point right or left side of the lower tub. Same thing here... if they get stuck in the UP position they waill not allow water to be introduced into the tub. Since you did not include a model number... I have to include all types of sensors. Some float and flood sensors are finger like and have a small slot in them to sense water level. The small slot clogs and they no longer sense properly or hold water when the tub is empty giving erronous inputs. Wipe off the finger slots.
IF the Float and flood sensors are ok the next step is to first POWER off dishwaher circuit. Then turn off the water supply and disconnect the water line at the inlet water valve to inspect for debris. Also you should briefly test the water supply line by placing a rag over the input line and turning on the water while catching the water in a short sided baking dish. (
If there is not a problem with water supply or debris then the final step is to measure continuity of the inlet water valve solenoid. No continuity = open coil and will require the inlet water valve to be replaced.
Since you did not include a model number this is a very generic response.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
