    Same thing happening to my LG WM1832CW, Washes fine, goes to spin & drain and makes a grinding noise until the OE or is it DE (Drain Error) code pops up. I did read that the drum won't spin if the water isn't draining. I pulled the drain pump and it looks fine, no clogs or visual damage I will test the motor. If the motors fine it's time to look at the power board (or a new washer)

It's the pump motor - I pluged it into the machine and ran a test cycle (service manual link below) and there was the grinding noise. NOTE - I also tested the spin through the QC test mode (see pg 15 of manual) and that worked fine. BTW I pulled the pump out from under the washer instead of taking the whole thing apart much, much easier.

If the pump is making a buzzing noise at any time it is not normal ive had mine for 2 years and it started doing it and then gave me the oe code so i followed the instructions and cleaned out the pump filter and found out that it was a sock and i had been looking fo the mate for awhile so long story short if the pump makes noise check the filter before you need a new pump from the stress

OE code keeps flashing ; door remains locked


Hello, an OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confirm that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Thanks

NEC washing machine won't spin. Letters OE flashing


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..
