How to fix drain hose on LG WM2487H M


The following are a number of things to check for the OE (drain error) indication.
If the washer does not drain then the drain pump may be clogged, damaged, or defective.
Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Open the drain pump filter tray at the lower left of the machine and check whether it is clean, check also that the pump impeller spins freely. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.
First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions. If the drain hose has any obstructions, try to remove them. If necessary, replace the drain hose.
Check the machine's water level frequency by pressing the WASH/RINSE + DELAY WASH buttons simultaneously. Check the reading on the display, if it is below 260 (26 Khz) then have someone measure the resistance of the pump motor coil.
It should be between 10-20 Ohms resistance, if too high or too low, replace the pump assembly as it cannot be repaired.

A drainage problem causes "OE" to be displayed on the digital display panel. The drain hose is likely kinked, clogged or frozen. Inspect the hose and remove kinks. Unclog the hose, if needed. Replace the hose if the problem is not resolved. If the dishwasher still does not drain,

Error code 0E on LG WM1290 FHB ?


The error code 0E stands for obstruction error, meaning that the drain line is obstructed. This is why the spin fails as all the water is not being drained. Check the drain hose for kinks and clean the drain filter. If they are not the problem, there could still be an obstruction in the drain hose in or about the drain pump.

I have wm1814cw lg front loader washing machine with oe light on and not draining we have clean filter unclogged drain hose and reset by unplugging and holding down power putton and start button als


The OE error or fault code indicates 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. Filter cleaned but makes terrible


You still have something caught in the drain line on the machine. Check the filter again and the lines coming from the tub to the pump, and from the pump to the waste line. Here is a link to LG's document on the "OE" error.

"OE" message


OE is actually DE - Drain Error. Pop open the little door on the bottom left of your washer, and unscrew the cap on the little tube on the left. ***Water will drain out!***
Once the water is out, unscrew the bigger tube on the right. This holds your drain filter. It is likely clogged, so clean it out and reinstall the filter and cap from the small hose.
Hopefully this fixes it!

Washer stops midway incycle and code says OE


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

3. Drain Filter
Check the drain filter for clogs as well. This filter can become clogged overtime, preventing the free flow to exit the drain tube. It is located inside the unit, mounted on the pump housing.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

NOTE-If the hoses filter,and pump check out ok, this will confirm that there is a serious within the actual control sector(Timer module or control board). It should be replaced i this case.

For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check drain hose and filter, all clean. Try different cycles, TUB CLEAN, SPEED WASH. Same error code. No drain.


Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.

Oe code


The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1st) Blocked drain hose 2nd) Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction) 3rd)Failing drain motor.
Gool Luck!
