Question about Washing Machines
SOURCE: washing machine nec nw-652
I had the exactly the same problem and then got to the stage that it wouldn't work at all. So i looked it up in the manual and found out that it was the filter, (and thats not the lint filters like i originally thought lol) so i cleaned it out and now it works better than new. Hope this helps you cos it was such a relief that i didn't have to buy a new one.

It was actually NEC (apologies), I was able to fix as 'OE' means there is a problem with draining water, after manually draining water from wachine i removed the draining pump and pulled it apart a hair elastic was wrapped around turning mechanism of motor after removing that and putting back together the washing machine now works as good as new.

i am having the almost the same problem with what i have, if it is turn, the water will just keeping on pouring in non stop, it does matter wether it is wash, rinse, dry or spin the water will just keep on pouring in at all time, it is not a good machine at all.

I had the same problem , I replaced the pump havent had the problem again. Then the heater element blew, (kept triping the house fuse) replaced that, then the door would'nt lock everytime, now it will fill up then give a code "E8" I think it's the mother board

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.

SOURCE: OE error
First, open the small access door at the lower left on the front of the machine. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine. Then, unscrew the big knob to remove the filter and clean out any obstructions there.
If you have the "OE" error code, which is really a "DE" (drain error) code, and you have checked the filter and it is clear, then most likely the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall. You can reach through the large hole in the bottom of the washer base to access the pump. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 5.5 or a 6.
