Hi. this may be caused be several issue that i will discus below. Kindly read over the list that will describe several issue that may be apparent. replace any parts that corresponds to the issue you are having.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Our dishwasher keeps stopping its cycle and saying 'OE' It is LG - LD/141ST1


the 'OE' code means clogged or kinked drain line. You will need to pull the dishwasher and disconnect the drain hose from both ends and flush out debris at the sink. Be sure the hose isn't kinked.

Error Code OE


Hi there,
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 

else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

Good Luck!!!

My husband has just installed a LG LD 14AW2 which was given to us


OE = Outlet Error It involves everything related to pumping the water out. Easiest is to start at the drain and work back. Check for a plugged drain. then a kink in the drain hose. A plugged hose?
If problem remains, remove lower rack and unscrew/remove the filter from the sump area, looking for debris. Rinse out any filter in the mesh filter. Look again for anything that is blocking the drain outlet. Reassemble and run a cycle.
If problems continue, the probable cause is a failing pump motor. Servce call time.
Good Luck!

ok. our machine has done this for 6 months or so, it was ok for the 1st 6 months. i have checked and cleaned and unblocked and gone bloody crazy. today i found the fault and fixed quickly.

the installer stuffed up. the waster water hose must head up and be fixed just under your bench top, then come down hill to your exit/spiggot/drain attachment.

ours was just lying more or less at floor level coming up to the spiggot. so whenever the waste water pump switched off, water would run back into the machine, hence the OE error, and also dirty water with food would then get chucked around it what should have been a clean rinse.

a diagram of the waste water house and how it should be done is in the manual.

i just about blew $1500 on a new machine !!

Error


The ?OE? indicates drainage trouble. It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
