LG Washer/Dryer won't drain

My LG WM3431H washer/dryer combo will not drain. I get the error "OE" on my machine which is the drain hose or drain filter is clogged. The filter is fine, but I cannot figure out how to disconnect the drain hose. And once I disconnect, how should I clean it?

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..

I have an LG washer/dryer combo wm3987h. I had the OE error which I followed instructions on how to fix now my machine comes on but it does nothing despite me picking a cycle. It does not wash, dry or...


OE = Drain error. Cause: not fully drained within 10 minutes
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.

Gives message...oe


On pg 18 of the service manual for this combo, front-load LG washer/dryer, it basically says if the drain's not working and you see an OE error code, clean the drain pump filter and retry. So first do that.
