At the bottom right hand side of the front of the appliance there is what looks like a circilar shaped disc. prise this open, you will then reveal the top of the filter, just unscrew it and look for any blockages

I have a whirlpool WFS1073CD and getting a red light indicator saying clean pump. It appears to be washing normally but wont go into the spin cycle. I have drained the water via the filter plug under

Hi Maureen
Wow.... at least this model has an indicator light telling you what the problem is. Many machines don't!
I think the reason it won't go into the spin cycle is that the water can't exit through the pump.
The usual cause is that a sock or something is caught or blocking the pump.
Power OFF of course.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump & try unclipping the hose off either side to feel for a blockage with your finger.
Pump blockage is a common occurrence in washing machines.
Good Luck

press pause / cancel button twice,,,, the problem you are having is it took too long for washer to drain, check discharge hose for blockages, second the motor didnt spin fast enough in the spin cycle, check all connection inside the washer , you'll have to remove some panels to access them SHUT POWER OFF BEFORE OPENING WASHER

I have an error code oe displaying on my washer and washer will not spin , can you tell me where to start to fix the problem? thanks dwayne


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a Drain Error which indicates that the water was not fully drained within 10 minutes. To start with check the drain pump filter for any clogs/foreign materials and try to clean the filter. Also if you have already checked the drain hose for any blockage then check the pump for any blockages, if still its not resolved then it seems to be the pump that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Smelly cloths and on the fast wash did not rinse well

check the drain pump motor. if partially blocked it will restrict the outlet. Open the thumbwheel and remove the lint. Chech the 2 pipes for any blockages

No water flowing through jets

CLR can be great if it is hard water blockage. If it is food blockage or a lot of hardwater you will have to dissassemble part of the sump pit and manually clean the blockage. Please rate this post.

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..
