Hello Kyle;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have 3 sensors in your unit, a thermal sensor, a position sensor and a door lock switch. These components will prevent you from running but, would not affect your power.

I assume you checked your circuit breaker to make sure you have power to your washing machine.

The slightest change in power supply, electrical power surge or power outage will knock out your boards. Magnetic fields and static electricity will knock out your boards. Are your appliances near a main power supply line in your home?

All appliance manufacturers recommend surge protectors if you have control boards in your appliance. Individual wall socket surge protectors cost about $20.00 at your local Home Depot or where ever. This is a good investment.

Ok, your have 3 control boards in your unit. One is the digital display board which has nothing to due with power supply.

The others are your main control board and your control panel board. Each of which can turn off power. The highest probability is the main control board. The part number for this board is EBR 44289820. The part cost $225.00 locally. You can probably get it for $180.00 if you search the internet. This is item A450 on the following link.

Remember static electricity can not out a board. Ground yourself by rubbing your hands over something that is steel. Either unplug your unit or turn the power off at your household fuse box. There are several clips holding the board in the casing. you must push outward to remove the board. Inspect the circuit back side for burn marks. If there are no burn marks you can still have a board component failure. DO NOT DISCONNECT ANY CONNECTOR PLUG IN. When you replace the board, you will replace one at a time.

SOURCE: LG Intello washing machine, model: WD12235 Front Load

Why dont you people read the user's manual? You wil learn abt your machine, to a certain extent. Try "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds. Works for other machines...............And please rate me if helped................

SOURCE: LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE

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: LG front load washing machine water leaks with heavy loads

If your water is leaking with heavy loads, the first thing you want to check is the gasket (door boot) attached to the tub. Look for holes or rips in the bellows part(where the water settles) and around where it contacts the door. Any nicks or holes will cause leakage. Also, check the glass dome on the door towards the bottom. If it has dirt or hair buildup on it, it will leak with any pressure on the door.

The dispenser is plastic, so it is not rusting. If there is rust on it, the rust came from your water. Try cleaning it with some Wink (or similar) rust remover.

SOURCE: LG model WM2277HW front load washing machine,

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
1) in my experience, sometimes this proves to be intermitent, and upon unplugging and waiting for 5 minutes does not seem to resurface again...
2)Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount.
this could prove to be very challenging to somebody who does not know what they are working with, i suggest if the problem is not intermitent, call a tech.. hope this helps.

Do I have to take apart the whole machine to fix the drain pump on my LG WM3455HW washer/dryer combo? I can't seem to find any instructions on this model.


Lucky You. The newer models of LG Combo units WM34xx have the filter on the right hand side and the pump can be changed through the bottom panel.
