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.

SOURCE: OE error
First, open the small access door at the lower left on the front of the machine. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine. Then, unscrew the big knob to remove the filter and clean out any obstructions there.
If you have the "OE" error code, which is really a "DE" (drain error) code, and you have checked the filter and it is clear, then most likely the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall. You can reach through the large hole in the bottom of the washer base to access the pump. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 5.5 or a 6.

It's actually a DE error code which stands for drain error. Pull the
little basket out that's behind the small door on the lower left front
(where the drain hose is) and look inside. The drain pump intake is
about an inch in on the left. Make sure there's nothing in there like a
paperclip or hair pin. If possible reach in and see if you can turn the
impeller. If it won't move there's something in there if it will turn
then the motor is probably bad.

• Water supply is not adequate in
• Water supply taps are not
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
