LG washer 2016 gets FE warning. What can be the
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
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

Error code LE what does it mean
The LE error indicates that the Controller is having trouble communicating with the motor.
The most common cause for this is if something gets wedged in and the drum can't turn freely. Try turning it by hand to make sure it is free. The next most common cause is if someone spins the drum moderately fast with the washer turned off. I.e. if you give it a spin to make sure their isn't a sock stuck to the drum.. To fix this, unplug the machine and turn the drum counterclockwise 4 full rotations followed by 4 rotations clockwise at low speed. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it.
If that's not it, then there is a sensor called the Hall Sensor that could be the problem. I've never had to replace one of these and can't comment further.

I had the same error code along with the drum "freezing" up. The first unit that was delivered 2 years ago leaked water from the detergent compartment and they sent a second unit. I have only had this unit for 2 years and I am very disappointed in the LG product. LG was no help on the phone and I the only people that could service it were 45min away from were I live. I took the advice of a posting on this website that it could be a part called the sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A) and ordered it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). To get to the sensor assembly, you first unplug and take off the back plate that has 4 small screws. Next, unscrew the big bolt in the middle and take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing. Next unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at (the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace). Next you will unscrew the 6 or so smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to. Take it off, unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one – and reassemble. This worked perfectly for me and the part only cost $18 bucks plus shipping. When working, this product works well but I will not be purchasing any LG products in the future.
