Error "(upside down FE)" means that your thermistor sensor has failed or at least the washer thinks it has failed. The thermistor is mounted into the bottom of the washer tub so you'll need to pull the washer forward and tip the washer backwards to access the sensor. Below is a link to the part so you can order it if needed and see what you're looking for. CLICK HERE for sensor Follow the wires from the sensor up to the board and make sure they are not broken. If they check good, then order and replace the sensor. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
