My Repair & Advice
The machine would not run a full cycle before it cut off and had the code "FE" and water was too high. The water inlet valve needed to be replaced since it was letting in too much water at time. The repair was easy. Unplug machine and turn off cold water. Remove cold water line and drain water into bucket. Remove back two braces located at the top on each end of machine This will allow you to move top cove back about one inch. Pull back top cover about 1 inch then lift off cover. Remove four screws that hold inlet valve in place near the cold line inlet valve on back of the outside of the machine. Then unplug the three wire connectors to the valve itself. They just pull off. Then using pliers grip each clamp to loosen and slid back up the hose and out of the way. Then gently wiggle each hose until it slides off the valve.
Install new valve starting with the three hoses and then slide the clap back into it's original position. Then install the 3 wire connectors they just slide back on. Then install the valve into place so that the intake is back on the outside of the machine. Secure all screws to make sure it does not move. Replace cold water line to the new valve and tighten using pliers. Turn on cold water to test. If no leaks install top and then two braces to hold top into place. Plug in machine and test run a load. If it cuts off and you get the code "FE" again then the only thing left is the circuit board needs to be replaced.
