SOURCE: LE ERROR CODE ON LG WM-2277HW
It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is the second time it happened to me and I had a repair man come out the first time. You need to have a shop vac with you so you can just pull the plug.

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.

the AE code means that there is water in the base I found that the steam heater element in mine was leaking so after a quick repair using silicon and a good clean after drying the water out of the base it now works again
PS I used to be a washing machine repair engineer! I wouldn't suggest that you start opening up your washing machine!!!!

You are right!
Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.
Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.
Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.
If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.
