LG Tromm washer problem.

I'm a little perplexed by our 6 year old LG Tromm washer. Two weeks ago we replaced the hot water valve after we got "FE" error codes and the water wouldn't stop filling. It was only occurring with the hot water was used. After the replacement, the hot water still wouldn't stop filling so I started using cold water only (with the hot water turned off at the wall). Worked fine for the past 10 days and then today I did 4 loads...the first two loads washed fine on "speed wash", the third wouldn't stop filling AND wouldn't spin on "speed wash" cycle, drained it and turned off the machine and started a new cycle with same wet "unspun" clothes and so far it's fine - water shutting off and spinning. What could this be??

From what you are describing it does sound like the control board is the problem. However, before you replace this part I would suggest testing it just to be sure. For this you will need an ohm meter and you will be looking for a open circuit. The image below will provide a wiring diagram for you to follow. You will need to check both the pressure sensor and the inlet valve connections. If one or both of there give you an infinite reading, then the board needs to be replaced. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
