Re: trap clear on lg tromm. still no spinning and/or...
OE code should appear. I've been able to re-start after unplugging the machine for ten minutes and then re-plug and it did clear the code and spin out but I'm back to the same problem and unplugging isn't working anymore. I'm wondering now if the issue maybe the machine isn't level. Well, something I'm now going to check. Good luck.

Jodie, the OE fault is a drain problem. First thing to look at is the pump coin trap on the bottom of the washer behind the little door. If the washer has water in it, pull out the little hose, remove the stopped at the end and drain into a shallow bucket. When the water stops, removed the trap by twisting the trap handle counter clock wise. If it is full of "stuff" clean it and reinstall it. If it is clean, then you either have a bad pump or something stopping the pump.
As you know OE is drain error. you still have a drain problem and this could be because the pump impeller has a coin or similar jamming it, or it could be that the pump motor itself is failing. If the drain hose is clear and not kinked and the pump is working the machine should drain........Good luck....Nomess
This code is a drain error code
Most likely pump trap is clogged up. Access it behind small door at front. Drain water out through small hose that is there otherwise water will be all over the floor when you unscrew the trap.
Check first if repositioning the drain hose would help solve the problem. If your unit employs a drain valve, have it checked out. It has a solenoid or a small motor that opens and closes the part. Check as well the drain pump if it is running or no power is being supplied. Have the wire checked to see if there are loose connections.
I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.
I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).
Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.
check your pump to make sure that it is clean there is a door on the bottom of the machine open it use the little hose to drain the washer in a bucket then twist the big cap and pull it out clean that trap
Santa says that "OF" code is really a "DF" (drain fault) which means check the filter (behind the access door at the lower left on front of the machine). There is a small drain hose next to it which should allow you to drain out the remaining water in the machine before you remove the filter. If the filter is clear, it is possible that the impeller on the pump motor is off, which requires a new pump motor. (if you push the impeller back on, it will only come off again) Santa would like a "fix ya" rating this year. thanks.
