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.

What does fault code 03 mean?


The O code on an LG washer is a long drain code. It is saying that it has not drained within ten minutes.
You will need to check the door on the lower left hand side and clean out the filter. If the filter has nothing in it, you will need to replace the pump.

LE error on washer. What can I do without a tech?


The *dreaded* "LE" error is overwhelmingly caused or triggered by incorrect type detergent **OR** too much *HE* detergent (a special low sudsing detergent).
In all LG washers-when too much detergent has been used-this will cause the "LE" error to be displayed & the wash cycle will be interrupted. Unplugging the washer for more than one minute will cause the MAIN BOARD (computer) to power down and re-boot when the washer has been plugged back in.
On LG washers built *before* 2008-after several "LE" error events-the error *cannot* be reset by unplugging the washer. This indicates that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR has failed and will need to be replaced.
On all LG washers built during and after 2008-a more robust resistor was used in the HALL EFFECT SENSORS-which eliminated damage caused by higher electrical loads placed upon the sensors due to oversudsing. HALL EFFECT SENSORS virtually never fail in 2008 and newer LG washers but the "LE" error will still occur if too much or the wrong type of detergent is used. This will be "resettable" by unplugging/replugging the washer.
The CORRECT amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to be used is as follows:
HE : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X : (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X : (1) Teaspoon
USE THESE AMOUNTS RELIGIOUSLY-NO EXCEPTIONS-IN ALL FRONT LOAD WASHERS WITH 3.0 cu ft DRUMS AND LARGER

The machine wont empty water gives a code of 03 I have cleaned the drain filter and check the drain hose still wont drain water unit is 1 1/2 years old


03 is drain error, as you know. The machine is sensing that the water isnt draining enough in 5 minutes...Unless there is an electronic problem the main reasons for the error code is because the drain hose is blocked, or the pump has something preventing it from turning, like a coin jammed in the impeller, or the pump motor itself needs to be replaced....These pump motors tend to get detritis in behind the impeller shaft seal and this often causes the pump to fail.....Good luck....Nomess

Diagnostic complete


Your washer apparently did not complete diagnostics. The display indicates that it stopped at the segment of the test where it was attempting to fill by using the hot water solenoid. The diagnostic test segments check the following:

C:00 - Door Lock
C:01 - Flow Meter, Cold Water Solenoid
C:02 - Dispenser Motor, Dispenser Contacts
C:03 - Hot Water Inlet Valve
C:04 - Motor rotates CW at wash speed
C:05 - Heater & NTC (Heater Sensor)
C:06 - Drain Pump
C:07 - Motor rotates CCW at 35 to 90 rpm within 15 seconds
C:08 - Motor rotates CCW at max. speed.

If there is an error associated with any portion of the diagnostics, the washer will shut down, an audible alarm will be heard, and an error (F) code will be displayed. Sometimes the washer will experience momentray glitches during testing, however. I would recommend unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). The is the main "brain" of the washer. Upon reset, attempt diagnostics again and let me know the results. I hope this helps you.
