Question about LG WD-3274RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer
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.

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.

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.

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..
