No, there is no access to the drain pump other than by removing the front panel to get to it.  It is a job that can be done but you will need to spend some time to disassemble the machine to get to it.

Wm1814cw le error cade

Make sure your drain hose is not bent - the code looks like a drain issue. It could be your drain pump. I had to take mine off and it was full of "gunk" and that can keep it from draining, causing that code. I have no affiliation with Home Depot, but they have a great web site showing how to get to the drain pump and how to take it off and clean it or probably just to replace it. Go in to the area to order the part and there should be an option to view a video on how to install it - not too hard, just follow directions. 48de78f6-d540-4f0d-8488-f3f5c589abed.jpg 1bc73971-d1f5-473d-8b8f-f05840bc9002.jpg

OE = Drain Error • Not fully drained within 10 minutes.
Check and clean the pump filter. The access panel is located on the front, bottom left of the machine. Place a towel under the front of the pump filter access panel opening before opening to catch any water that may flow out.
Check drain hose on the back of the machine for any kinks or blockage.

I am getting the oe code and i already tried to unplug the washer and drain it. What do i do know?

OE is a drain error, here's some stuff LG recommends.

Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

If you try the above, and still no success, your looking to replace the drain motor on the unit.

Washer won't drain

You either have a foreign debris trapped inside the drain pump or the drain pump is broken.  You will need a qualified LG technician to repair this problem.
