Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
The washer goes through the wash cycle but when it comes to rinse and spin it seems to stop with soapy water in it and gives us an error code. I have tried for hours to shut down and restart. Sometimes it works but only after many tries.
I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

I removed the filter (Bottom left) and like others found some sludge in the filter but not enough to stop water getting through. Inside the filter housing on the right hand side is a tube which goes in for about 2 inches where I guess it joints the rubber drain hose and the pump outlet pipe. I found 2 coins inside this tube a 5p and 1p. I got them out with my little finger and hey presto, all sorted.
Thanks to previous posts for pointing me in the right direction.
Hope this helps.
