FE error? My washer/dryer unit abruptly stopped working yesterday, 2 days after the warranty ended. An "FE" is being displayed, and wet clothes are locked inside of the machine. No problems are apparent. I've unplugged and replugged the machine, to no avail. What should I do, please? Thanks!

    I have the same problem and the troubleshooting guide suggest water overfills due to the faulty water valve. The suggested solution is to close the water tap, unplug the power cord and call for service. Before I call the service anyone have the same problem and eventually suggest solution without calling support. I am out of warranty

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.

    An update to my posted workaround solution: You don't have to unplug the machine. Simply shut off the water, reopen the tap, Pause the cycle (with the Start/Pause button) and restart the cycle (same button) and it will actually pick up right where you left off!

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.

Not heating

If you can hear the dryer start and operate but at end of cycle your clothes are wet then it is likely (assuming the heater is turning on) that the fluff collection on the condensor unit is blocking its operation.
Refer manual at this site and follow instructions on page 20.

Samsung washing machine

Based on my experience, the same thing happens to me as you have mentioned that it happens every end of a cycle. I doubt if it was a fan error or a frequency error. for me, its just a simple overload for the autodrying. for example on my model. the manual says autodrying cotton-cupboard dry must be max 3 kg. since you cannot measure your wet clothes and it sometimes exceed the 3kg autodrying, that is when the FE comes out. but when i remove some clothes or spin the laundry again and put it into drying, everything works fine. when i use the machine with minimal clothes say 2kg dry, the whole cycle up to drying work fine without FE errors.

So i believe its just an error for drying overload. also the manual says nothing about FE nor Error code for drying overload.

Hope this help.

I just got a malber 1000 washer/dryer. Can it be used as a dryer only?

NO THIS UNIT USES CONDENSED DRYING AND WILL WET THE CLOTHES BEFORE IT EVEN TURNS ON THE HEATER. BASICALLY YOUR COMBO USES STEAM CIRCULATION THRU YOUR CLOTHES. AS THE SMALL WATER PARTICLES IN THE STEAM MOVE THRU YOUR CLOTHES IT COMBINES WITH SMALL WATER PARTICALS IN THE CLOTHES(THINK OF 2 WATER DROPS COMBINING ON YOUR WINDSHEILD AND HOW THEY ABSORB TOGETHER) WHICH RISE TO THE TOP OF THE TUB AND COLLECT INTO WATER AGAIN. THEY THEN ROLL DOWN THE SIDES OF THE TUB AND COLLECT AGAIN AT THE BOTTOM TO BE PUMPED OUT. BEFORE THIS PROCESS EVEN STARTS THE UNIT WILL ACTUALLY ADD WATER TO GENERATE THE STEAM. MOST PEOPLE FIND THAT IF THEY WANT TO JUST FRESHEN UP SOMETHING, IT WILL END UP DRENCHING WET IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES.

Thor laundry system won't dry clothes I have a thor no venting washer/dryer combo machine, that has been working fine for years. Suddenly it is not drying clothes and instead, clothes are soaking wet...

I am having the same problem on a WD9900A. The wash cycle works great. Spins fast and clothes are completely rung out. Dryer cycle heats up well. Fluffs and heats cloths. At some point during dry cycle water is injected on clothes and they end up sopping wet; much wetter than after wash. Filter is clear. Outlet pipe clear and functions well. Possible problem with dryer timer? Or washer timing kicking back on?

I have LG DLE2101W just installed yesterday. It

I found your manual and learned yours is a GAS dryer... the FIRST check is to be SURE the gas valve to your dryer is OPEN.

There is a Troubleshooting section, but NOTHING about no heat?

Know that LOW gas pressure CAN be a issue too!

I did find this:

"If the dryer no longer heats then the heating element may have failed, but it is not the most common cause. The most common cause for a dryer to stop heating is a blown thermal fuse."

The SECOND Link will be VERY helpful...

More help?
Cause 1 Thermal Fuse
Cause 2 Gas Valve Solenoid

Tumble dryer not working

I managed to solve the problem the following way: I noticed that if you unplug the Sensor-NTC(part nimber 154431 https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=WET2820GB%2f13 ) that controls temperature of air in the air channel, the drying cycle runs as you describe above. So this circute was checked up to the power module. Contacts of the Sensors plug were tightened; I think this solved the problem; resistance of the sensor checked. It must be 4.8K at 25 degree C. and decrease when temperature increases. I dipped the sensor in a glass with hot water.

LE Error??

your handbook should say what "fe" (a fault code) is. it may be not draining. have you checked the filter? on many machines the door can not be opened if water is still inside. try putting the drain hose at floor level into a bucket. otherwise undo the filter and let the water out that way - you may have water everywhere!!
