SOURCE: MY LG WASHER WONT DRAIN, IT SAYS THE ERROR MESSAGE

OE is a drain error - Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

SOURCE: LG washer with OE error

Hi,

If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem

Thank You !!

SOURCE: OE Error

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..

Error meaasage 0E Drain Error what to do?


This OE error or fault code indicates that the machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

OE errors. An OE error on a LG washers suggests a pump problem. Check the drain filter on front bottom of washer for any obstructions. If this is clear, call for service. The pump impeller may be damaged, pump windings shorted, or a obstruction in line.

What do we when we replaced the pump on a frontload washer, LG, but still get an error message OE?


The DE Code indicates a Drain Error. This means that the washer thinks the water has not drained out of the tub within 10 minutes, which is an eternity for the washer. Since you have indicated that there is no obstruction in the hoses, and filter, and you have replaced the pump, then the only other parts that could be at fault would be the water level sensor, or the main circuit board. Replace in that order.

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.

OE error message checked drain hose for kinks drain hose is clear


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. As you have already checked the drain hose and it is clear so check the drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. If the problem is still there after cleaning then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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

No, there is no access to the drain pump other than by removing the front panel to get to it.  It is a job that can be done but you will need to spend some time to disassemble the machine to get to it.
