This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

SOURCE: water coming out of drawer & door

Hi Gary,It sounds to me that you have a blockage within the pressure systemas this is a classic sign. If you take the top off the machine you will see a round switch with a few wires going to it.This is the pressure switch. at the bottom of this switch is a thin pipe,normally black or clear. there is a small spring clip holding this pipe to the switch, If you remove this pipe and gently blow down it you will probably find it is blocked. You will then need to follow this pipe to the bottom of your machine. At the bottom of the machine where this pipe is fitted you will see there is a chamber and it is this chamber likly to be blocked.Some times you may clear this with a small piece of wire by removing the small pipe and poke wire through, but best way is to see how this chamber is removed and remove it for cleaning.Ensure machine is off at mains. this chamber fills with water and causes air pressure within the switch at the top of machine, which in turn tells programe when machine is full and also when empty. If this fails then machine will not turn off water supply as long as it is on. there fore when you reconnect parts ensure they are tight and clips back in place. Good luck and hope this works. Failing this working you may need to call an engineer to check switch and possible fault on board.

SOURCE: i have a problem with my LG Tromm front load

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..

SOURCE: washing machine stops after wash,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
LG's 'OE' means 'drain (Output) error.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?


Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000010-20150140270078-other-error-codes

The site shows the following:

The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

1. Close both water taps.

2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

Have an LG FRONT LOADER WASHING MACHINE THAT IS OVERFILLING


Make sure that you get the correct pressure switch and also check that the rubber hose that comes off the tub onto the pressure switch is completely clean inside. Any gunk that prevents the pressure build up in the tub, when water is being taken on, from going up the pipe to the switch will cause an overflow error FE.
This could also be a faulty water inlet valve, but more likely the switch.

"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.

Display code FE... what needs to be done


FE in an over fill error. (the pump should automatically come on to drain water) If the machine is not overfilling, check the thin hose that goes to the water level switch. If it is overfilling you will either need to replace the inlet water valve if it is filling with no power to the vavle, or the main control board if it is receiving power in the FE condtion.

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.
