    I have the OE error code that mean the filter is blocked or the draining hose is folded.

    But this is not the case, the repair men say that the main PCB need to be replaced. I did not trusted him so I thank him goodbye.

    Our dishwasher sounded like it wanted to turn on, but no water coming in. Came up with oe error code. Cleaned drain/filter thing and checked outlets and inlets. Pulled dishwasher out - aaggghhh yukky behind there - and it worked !!! Must have kept pushing it in and leaning on the hose. What a super site... thanks for saving me a plumbers bill.

I have LG dishwasher for 2 years now. Working perfectly until one day one glass gets broken during washing cycle. Immideatly we get EO error. We check possible reason of error in the manual then decided to try to fix ourself. We open bottom cover and drain outcoming part. Immideatly we discover a piece of glass that was preventing a small plastic piece to rotate. We remove that piece of glass. Put back covers and machine. We connected it back to outlets and run it. All was working again !!! This is advise for everybody do not call service before checking the same by yourself ! As I read in internet in general service is qiute expensive and offten they are saying - you need to replace some part etc.... and this is very expensive. Try to do steps that I wrote and hopefully you are saved.....

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?


OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

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.

Getting an error code OE in LG inverter direct drive dishwasher and water not draining


Hi Ged Lunny,

The OE error code means "Outlet Error"

The drain pump is either clogged or the outlet hose is kinked.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks.
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it.

Kind Regards :-)

Check the drain hose for blockage. and see if the water filters is clogged. Specific instructions will vary based on your specific LG model. Most LG frontloaders have an access panel on the front for the water filter.

What does the flashing OE mean? My washer is flashing OE and the water will not drain after the cycle.


OE means the drain hose is clogged. UE means unbalanced or overloaded. This is decribed in the owner's manual page 31-32. Pull the hose from the back of machine and rinse it out. Then, check the lint filter on the bottom, front left side. Put drain hose back and close lint filter. Unplug the machine, press and hold the start button for 10 seconds to reset machine computer (not the on button...leave machine turned off and unplugged while resetting computer) plug back in, put on no spin and start the machine. It should drain.

My washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle


OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..

Morning, LG WD1295FB error OE, plese advise


An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes. However, the OE error code does not always mean that the washer requires a service call. If periodic maintenance has not been performed on the washer, there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service. oe_led.jpg oe_lcd.jpg LED display models LCD Display Models Step 1: Check the drain pump filter. Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly. Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine.

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.

Error Code OE and Door will not unlock


error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.try running the spin cycle alone till the water empties completely.If the problem still continues it means that the pump is clogged where you cant reach, since you've tested with the drain hose.
