You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

The OE error is really a DE error. (Drain error) Drain all water out of machine as you have done before and remove the square recess around the filter by removing one screws and using a putty knife from the side of the recess. Now you will be able to remove the two more screws holding the pump to the front housing. Tip machine back (best to just lean it against an object like a wall that's about a foot and a half away) and reach under machine to remove pump. Pump is held by a plastic tab which should be depressed to release pump. If you take off wires to pump and the two bigger hoses you can pull the assemble completely out. Take the three screws out which are holding the pump motor on. Replace pump motor with a new one. Reinstall pump assembly.
If you list a model number I can look up a part number.
Not too sure how you got water to come out vent, as machine should not spin with water in drum. Possibly you may also have to clean out the water level hose. Remove four screws holding back cover, take off cover, remove and clean out thin black hose from bottom back of machine and the nipple it was pushed onto.

OE is a drain error (indicating the machine has not drained out in under 10 minutes). If the drain pump is not coming on at all then you have a bad drain pump motor. If it is trying to drain then you may have a clogged up drain hose. The most likely cause is a bad drain pump motor. Hope this helps.

its not easy, but you'll have to lay the washer on its back and take off the crate like bottom panel. Discontect all the hoses. Disconnect the electrical line going to the pump. If you can, try and seperate the pump motor from the housing by unscrewing two screws on the housing, which will seperate the motor from the housing, If you cant get to it, I actually broke the screws on the drain filter housing to get it loose. I secured it back with the other front loading screw and some gorilla glue, shouldnt be a problem. I should at least get another 6 years out of this pump. Good luck.

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..
