Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
The valve also needs to open for the water to drain instead of recirculating the water. Is the water circulating during the wash or rinse cycle? If yes, check the diverter valve. Follow the drain hose to the valve - check for lose wire, if it getting current, remove wires, check conductivity. etc. It may have 120 Volts, so be careful. Do at your own risk.

SOURCE: water wont drain
OE-pump blocked. Disconnect the power before attempting any work. Use of an RCD (plug in power breaker) is recommended.
Disconnect pump from sump hose and check for obstruction in either item. Pump removal: power off, remove cover, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.

Thanks for using FixYa. You are right OE error is caused when the washer is unable to drain for 10 minutes. As you have already checked and cleaned the drain hose and it seems that you have cleaned the drain pump filter & still the issue is not resolved then it seems that the pump has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
