I have a problem with my LG Tromm front load washer. It will wash seemingly normally up to the point it gets to the spin cycle. Then a motor comes on and the machine does not spin or drain. The display...


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

The washing machine quit and an error code of "OE" was showing....what does that mean?


When mine does that, I stop the cycle, and untwist or remove something that made the load unbalanced and start over again. THat has always fixed it for me.

What does oe mean on the front loader lg tromm and how do I fix it?


Not sure what the OE is, but I;ve been having the same letters flashing on my washer this week. I checked the filter at the bottom and it was totally plugged up ! I would check your filter.

NEC Washing Machine when it comes to spin cycle stops and just beeps with the 'OE' light flashing.


Well, what does that mean? Old Engine? Octopus Entering? Oily Electricity? Darn. No clue from that light, is there?

My guess is that it thinks there is an uneven load. Assuming that you've straightened your load, I'd say it must be a bad uneven load sensor. And unfortunately I don't know where that is located. So I guess I'm not much help. Sorry.
