I have a FE and a PE code on my washer, I recently had a drain back up, could this have caused the error, and would I have to replace both water valves?
A backed up drain could potentially cause the unit to come up the error codes. The PE is a pressure sensor error and the FE is overflow error. If the water backed up into the washer it could have gotten debris into the pressure hose which would cause this issue. If that is not the case then you will want to replace the pressure switch which would be out of order.
I have an FE fault. How can I tell if it is a hot or cold water valve problem.
Answer Hello Rick,
The FE fault code indicates an overfill condition. Spin out all of the water and unplug the unit. Locate the pressure switch and blow out the hose that leads from the pressure switch to the tub.If you would like, I was sending you some service related material pertaining to your machine, but your e-mail came back as permanently failed.
My pre-wash flows water, but my main wash only flows cold water no hot. I am not getting any error codes. The valves test at the correct resistance. Would this be a valve problem or a board problem?
Answer Hello Kris. This model uses a heater and a thermister 6322FR2046C to determine water temperature. It brings in cold water to fill the tub, but turns on the heater to heat the water up for a hot wash cycle. The valves work different chambers on the dispenser, so cold will come in on a hot cycle to empty the dispenser. Hope this helps.
How do I check to see if the drain hose is siphoning water back into the tub?
Answer Hello Ljsciortino. If both water connections, cold and hot, are turned off at the same time, then the water has to be coming from the drain hose. There is no way for water to enter through the water valves if the water is turned off. Hope this helps.
