The filter is located right after you open the drain cover on the bottom of the washer it's a hard plastic filter, if it is not clogged with any debris, then it sounds like your pump motor is bad, maybe need to replace it. lg's are very sensitive........., find out the part number and search it through google. if not email me and i could set sumthin up for you.

WHAT DOES IT NEED DONE WHEN ERROR MESSAGE SAYS 0E


An OE error code indicates that the washer was unable to drain the water. The main causes for this error code are a kinked drain hose, a clogged drain pump filter, or a problem with the drain pump itself.

Washer wont drain displays OE. Pump makes a vibrating sound lie it is plugged already checked filter cleaned it removed hose how do you replace the pump?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. If the issue returns then yes you should replace the pump, please check this repair manual on how to replace the pump. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Washer machine erroe code oe


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.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.

Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter.

How to clean pump filter on lg wm2688hwm


No, probably have a bad water pump, very common for this washer. I would pull the washer out, lean it against your wall, brace or block it up so you can crawl under it. You will see where the drain hose comes out of the bottom left of the drum and enters the drain filter. Remove the hoses and check for debris or clothes in the hoses or where the drum outlet is. If no restrictions then replace your water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

MY LG WASHER WONT DRAIN, IT SAYS THE ERROR MESSAGE


OE is a drain error - Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

You do not have an "OE" error, you have a "DE" error. DE error is "drain error" which displays if the washer has not pumped out after 10 minutes. If there is water in the machine and no obstruction in the filter I would suspect that the pump impeller is bad, and you would need a new pump motor. (part # 4681EA2001D) Pump motor is located directly to the left of the filter, and can be accessed by tilting the washer back and reaching it from underneath. The pump housing is held onto the machine by three phillips head screws.

If you have "DE" error and there is no water in the machine that's a whole different problem I'll address if you say that's the case.

If you need good service, try calling a small dealer who sells and services the procuct line you are having a problem with. You can find LG servicers at us.lgservice.com but avoid the utility companies, A & E, Sears, and all the big guys who try to service every brand but often times are not very familiar with your brand.

That should help. Carl S., factory authorized LG technician for over 10 years.
