I doubt he actually back flushed the line. I bet that after he cleared the filter and removed debris under the filter, he started a quick cycle, then after the dishwasher was filled, he pressed the two buttons together that make up "Cancel" , held for 3 seconds and the unit automatically began to pump the water out and prepared to shutdown.
The cancel button can be used that way anytime it is needed.
Hope that helps.

What is wrong when the code oe shows


This OE error or fault code to indicate that the washing machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Sometimes objects that are put into the washing machine, for example combs, money, hair pins, etc. end up in the filter. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear and functioning properly, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

OE ERROR CODE


The manufacturer has assigned the OE error or fault code to indicate that the washing machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Sometimes objects that are put into the washing machine, for example combs, money, hair pins, etc. end up in the filter. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear and functioning properly, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

LG dishwasher - stops washing


Hi there Romey. The error code OE relates to the drainage system, there are some things you can check to helpdiagnose the fault. you can check the filter in the bottom of the dishawaher isnt cloghed up or blocked. While you hae got the filter out have a look for any signs of large debrit that may cause a blockage. If all of this is ok you will need to check the waste pumps operational condition. make sure the pump impellar hasnt come loose/broken off or become jamed up.
If you cannot find any fault wit any of these things you may need to replace the control board. please let me know if there is anything else I can do to asist you with this issue.
Regards Gary

I have a message on the dishwasher saying EO do you know what this is?


Hi there Mark, are you sure of that code? there is no referance to it but there is a referance to OE, Oe relates to water drainage. it either took too long to drain if thats the case check your filter for blockages or it didnt drain if thats the case I would be looking at the waste pump for bockages.bent armiture or failure. I hope this helps regards Gary.

Im receiving an OE error code on my LG Dishwasher Model LDF7811st. The machine runs for a little bit and then it dings a few times with the "OE" code and stops running. HELP please


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..
