Question about LG SteamWasher WM2801H Front Load
I have this LG washer... in the past couple weeks it has intermittently thrown an "FE" error code on the LCD. After the first time I replaced the hot water valve as was recommended by many on different forums. This seem to fix the error but it occurred today. This error has occurred during Sanitary and Allergiene cycles. Also will note after the error code has shown up the water level was unusually high so I initiated the spin down and drain mode as per the manaual. However, I left the room and the machine ran for a bit then finished and unlocked the door and the water that never draind spilled out into our basement... this was a lot of water not a little. Very frustrating. There was still some residual water in the tub so I tried the spin down and drain again and the following atempts work. Has anyone had this kind of behavior happen before? Seems intermittent, what else can I check or replace?
I am having this issue right now. BUT it was -42°C outside and my washer is in my poorly insulated back porch. The drain pipe is blocked off with ice,so my washer is full of water and it doesnt want to drain. Working on heating the ice blockage to get it running again. It did this on the coldest day of the year last year as well. Just hoping again to be lucky and not have any permanent damage due to the ice

SOURCE: intermittant 'OE' error code
OE means it has not fully drained with in 10 minutes. Check your button trap and make sure nothing is there. If you want, make sure there is nothing in the unit and you can put it into test mode and check out to see if the drain pump is working.

I have this problem and you can find the solution on this same web page by searching. It is likely the Hall Sensor that needs to be replaced (see proflevy posting on Jul 16, 2008). According to the postings, it is from soap build up on the sensor and replacing it costs $18 for the part and is easy (many responses on this). I am waiting for the part and will try to fix mine soon.
