Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

OE Error I'm getting an OE error which is a drainage trouble error. I checked the hose and the drain, and everything is clear. My diswhwasher runs 98% of its full cycle and usually with 2 minutes to go I get this error. I have 2 opinins as to why this is happeneing. 1. Maybe the clog is in my trash compactor, however that seems to be working fine and my sink is funning with no slow down. 2. My 2nd theory is I have to reset the progam within the dishwasher. Like how sometimes I have to reset my cable box. Is there a code or a button code to reset the dishwasher like a cable box?

Water is not draining.... OE symbol appears on display. Checked the connection up to sink and drainage out to garbage disposal. everything seems fine there!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter by removing the bottom front access panel for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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 :-)

OE light comes on and the water does not pump anymore - what can i do????????????

Hello there :
Hey lg is having all kids of problems with their machines i have the error code for you but if you have a warranty i think i would use it this error code is the one i got from lg them selves ok?
"OE" Drain error > Condition: the drain hose kinked or blocked.
The drain outlet of sump is blocked. The drain pump/motor or circuit is troubled.(shorted )

and here is what you will need to check
Remove kink. check all drainage system and clear as necessary

Check wiring. Measure the resistance of drain motor if the resistance is (20-40ohms) Replace the drain motor or repair the circuit.
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Error code OE; dishwasher stops with error message 2 min into cycle, drainage seems OK, water doesn't appear to pump into machine - any advice?

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

The ?OE? indicates drainage trouble. It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
