If you found coins and such in the drain filter then there is a possiblility that the impeller in the drain pump motor was damaged and you are not getting good water flow thru it. The machine will error out and stop mid cycle if it detects it has not drained in a set amount of time. OE indicated a drain error. I suspect you need to have the drain pump motor assembly replaced.

Why does my 5 year old machine keep stopping mid-cycle?


Check the door sensor and clean it. Or one or more(i believe there are three) of your tub sensors may be bad.

How do I stop my washing machine from stopping and showing an error code E20 when it gets to the spin part of the cycle?


These type of machines now have a balance sensor fitted, if you have to much in the drum, or like I did once washed just a single bathroom mat, the drum sensed that the single item fell against the drum making it uneven & stop the spin to protect itself, this could be the problem, try taking some out or even putting more in to even out the wash? if this does not cure it, then you may need to get the error code reset, unfortunately only a washing machine mechanic has the ability to do this, I don't agree with these tatics, but you cant get round it, some can be got from the web.

My washing machine stops mid wash and on d LCD display it has the letters OE sometimes the machine doesn't spin an if t does the cycle it doesn't let the fabric conditioner go n the was


An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes. However, the OE error code does not always mean that the washer requires a service call. If periodic maintenance has not been performed on the washer, there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service. Clear the filter located on the bottom left on the face of the machine. You will find a access panel located there that you need to open. richroth_61.gif Happy Holidays The FixYa Team

I have an lg front loader washing machine...it keeps stopping mid cycle and gives a troubleshoot code of oe...i cant find my owners manual and the lg site is awful....can you help me?


OE is drain error..Most likely problem is partially blocked pump filter...This is accessed via the small door at floor level...Unscrew the pump cover and clear the filter..Any water in the machine will flow from the pump cover...Empty the machine first...Leaning it back can help....Good luck....Nomess

Stops mid-cycle, does not drain, displays nd error code?


Hello.
That code is telling you that the unit is draining to slow. After 15 minutes it is not below the low water level and will not spin out. The best repair for this is to replaced the pump on your unit.

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE


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.
