How do you fix an over flow error on a LG front load washer?

Resolved Question:

How do you fix an over flow error on a LG front load washer? Works after about the sixth or seventh time of restarting, but then right back to the FE code.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

does the water keep entering the machine even if you shut the machine off ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The water keeps running if you press pause, which it didn't use to. I am not sure if you shut the power off, I think so. I will have to go check.

Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
okay let me know. try it and then hit off, if it doesn't then try unplugging it and see if it does.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes the water keeps pour into the machine.

okay you need to order and replace the water inlet valve. is not shutting tightly when the machine is off. this allows water to fill and thus the overflow condition, do you have a model # ? I can see if I can find the valve for you. let me know, thanks, Bryan
