I am using LG frontLoading washing machine! My machine works with all cycles until it comes to drain water it shows no drain signal! we took the dirty water out from the bottom part still it shows no...


Are you getting the "OE" message? This seems to be a common problem with these machines based on all the posts I've seen. I had a similar issue and I am down to replacing the main drain water pump. Have you been cleaning the filter at the bottom of the machine regularly (our problem started here)? Are you using "low sudsing" soap? Are you following LG's suggestions for how much soap to use? and hopefully . . . . is it still under warranty? There are a lot of good posts here with training manuals and everything. Good luck. didn't answer the question did I?
Is the OE message coming on? -> (YES) -> *** TURN OFF AND UNPLUG MACHINE 120vac AND WATER DON'T MIX EVER! ** a) Drain via little black hose in front.b) Remove filter(big black round thing next to drain hose) and clean within an inch of its life. Take a flash light and shine in the hole to see if anything is stuck in the baffle (good choice of names), if so remove the object carefully so as not to tear the rubber. c) with a wet towel (you'll have some in front of you by now) clean the filter receptacle of all the crud. d) PRAY!! e) plug machine back in it should make it's happy sound. f) pick a short rinse/spin cycle (keep praying) and push "go". If all goes well it will fill do some agitating and then start to drain. If it drains your done. I'll be over with my clothes as I am waiting for parts to fix my drain. I didn't pray hard enough I guess. If (NO) -> Sensor may be bad but I've not seen anyone with the drain not working and the OE not lit. Keep trolling here you'll find something. Cheers Myles

I have a problem with my LG Tromm front load washer. It will wash seemingly normally up to the point it gets to the spin cycle. Then a motor comes on and the machine does not spin or drain. The display...


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..

What does the flashing OE mean? My washer is flashing OE and the water will not drain after the cycle.


OE means the drain hose is clogged. UE means unbalanced or overloaded. This is decribed in the owner's manual page 31-32. Pull the hose from the back of machine and rinse it out. Then, check the lint filter on the bottom, front left side. Put drain hose back and close lint filter. Unplug the machine, press and hold the start button for 10 seconds to reset machine computer (not the on button...leave machine turned off and unplugged while resetting computer) plug back in, put on no spin and start the machine. It should drain.

Washing machine My washing machine coming up with OE error before spins and drains water


this means the machine has tried to empty for 10 minutes check the filter and unblock it or else the drain hose is kinked or crushed, worse case scenerio is that you need a new water pump

My washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle


OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..

Front loader wm2277hs washer with OE error sign


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.
And from your original post, I see that you have checked the drain pipe and the pump filter..

Those are the only 2 things I would of asked you to check aswell.

As for the price, I cannot answer that as most manufacturers wont publish their prices unfortunatly.

Sorry I couldnt of offered more help.

Error Code OE and Door will not unlock


error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.try running the spin cycle alone till the water empties completely.If the problem still continues it means that the pump is clogged where you cant reach, since you've tested with the drain hose.
