According to the handbook: drain hose is kinked or clogged; the drain filter is clogged.
Solution: clean and straighten the drain hose; clean the drain filter.
I have tried both but have not yet solved the problem.

SOURCE: LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

OE is a drainage error.

This can be anything from a plugged filter screen to a faulty drain pump.

The filter screen location and cleaning procedure can be found in your owner's manual or online at the LG website.

SOURCE: OE message on our LG WM1832CW washer

I just was searching for the same exact error on my LG WM1832CW washer. From reading the other posts on different manufacturers I realized this was a pump clog issue for mine too. There is a small door near the bottom of the front of the washer and if you open that there is a filter basket. Once you start turning it and break the seal, the water will come out quickly, have 2 flat large tupperwares so you can catch the water. Once you clean out that filter it's good to go. A 5 minute job.

SOURCE: LG Washer/Dryer won't drain

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..

Gives message...oe


On pg 18 of the service manual for this combo, front-load LG washer/dryer, it basically says if the drain's not working and you see an OE error code, clean the drain pump filter and retry. So first do that.

LG Trom wm2077gw OE error code and won't come off and empty macine I washed a comforter and it shredded part of it and is stuck on OE what does this mean and how do I fix it. Thanks


OE means it has not fully drained with in 10 mins. You may have something in the drain. Open the little door on the front, ust the small hose to drain it first, then take out the button trap. If you don't see anything, you can also check your drain hoses and if you want tilt back the unit, support it with something and look in the bottom hose make sure you don't have a sock or something there.
