It is important to start where the drain hose connects to the drain. Probably connects indirectly to the garbage disposal. Look for blockage there and work your way back to the dishwasher.

IF you can't find a blockage, then it is time to remove your lower spray arm and the approximately 9 screws that secure the filter assembly to the sump floor. Rinse everything that you remove.

Using a flashlight, inspect the entire sump area for debris (watch out for broken glass!) Look closely where the drain pump is located. You will probably find some sort of blockage jamming that pump.

Reassemble and test. It is rare, but an OE error could be created by a failing drain pump motor. But try everything else first.

Good Luck!

LG 1419LF My dishwasher stops during its cycle, it shows an error message: OE, there is 2 inches of water at the bottom of machine...Please help...


Hi

OE in your dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. If the issue returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi


OE in your LG dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.

Lg di dvr 9kg does not spin.ser no f1403fd[oe comes up in window,to stop program]what should i do.


Hi cheyrlsouthw,

OE error is Outlet Error. You will need to clean the Pump Filter, as it is most likely clogged by a foreign object. Check your Manual for instructions on how to do this.

Kind Regards

LG washer getting an OE error. I have opened the pump and drained the water as well as ckeaned the filter...still not working propperly.


OE means your machine has failed to drain within 10 minutes. There are a few posibilities. Your drain hose could be kinked or clogged causing the machine not to drain. Try using a shop vac to remove the water from the end of the drain hose. If a shop vac won't **** out the water either, you have a clog somewhere ing the drain hose, of the hose from the tub to the pump. If it will drain the water you need a new pump. If there is no water in the machine then the problem is either the pressure switch, the hose going to the pressure switch, of the control board. The pressure switch is on the back by the control board. You will see a black rubber hose going attached to it. Remove it and see if you can blow through it. If you cant it is clogged somewhere. If it is not clogged then the most likely cause is your pressure switch and next the control board.

Washer has water still in drum and OE on digital readout


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a drain error, it flashes when the washer won’t drain within 10 minutes. TO resolve this issue you’ll have to check the drain pump filter for any clogs, also check the drain hose for any kinks and clean the drain pump filter. If still the issue is not resolved then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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.
