20 Most Recent LG WM2042 Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

It sounds like you are over-filling the drum with water. Check the fill switch. If the fill switch is bad, it will not stop filling with water.

DE indicates a door lock error.

Either the door lock, wiring or main control board can cause this fault. The door lock is relatively inexpensive so it would be worth trying a new door lock first.

Check the wiring between the door lock and the control board. If a new door lock doesn't fix it and the wiring is ok you are only left with the control board.

Hope this helps.

Before ordering a new control board, check the wiring harness to make sure there are no breaks in the wire from the water valve to the board.  If everything checks out, replace the board.  The board is not that hard to replace and all the wire connectors are not confusing.

There is no need to raise the water level. all modern washers automatically add the amount of water needed to wash the amount of clothes that you put in, I could explain how, but it will put you to sleep. rest assured these machines pretty much look after themselves. I would be more interested to know why you think it needs more water, are you having rinsing issues? wash quality issues?

Remove the screws that attach the top panel at the back of the machine, slide the top backwards and remove the top panel.
Run the machine as per normal, but be careful as the electrics will now be exposed, you will be able to see where the water is leaking from and be able to repair/replace defective part.
