FE is a fill error. As indicated above, it indicates a faulty valve. My machine does the same thing, but only when using hot water .The hot water will start filling and will never stop. Eventually, the machine realizes it's overfilled and gives the FE error - but since the valve can't close the water keeps coming. That's why the suggestion is that you shut off the tap. That's the only way to make the water stop filling. After your unplug the unit, it resets and you can try continuing with another cycle. It will start by draining any water currently in the tub. My current workaround while awaiting a technician is to wash in cold water.
But does anyone knows what FE means?
I would say the most noticable thing is to check the drain pump and piping for blockages or jambing up. especially if it was all of a sudden.
