Make sure the inline filters between the hoses and the back of the washer are clear. Take hose off back of washer and look into water inlets on washer for small filters. If that is not it, obviously make sure water is turned on. Next, if that doesn't help, take top off no check electrical connections on inlet valves. If they are ok, then try a cold water only wash. Then if that doesn't work, try a hot water wash. Good luck.

SOURCE: For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check

Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.

That's a real pain. Even if you remove the hose, it is hard to clean out. You can get at the pump end of the hose by tilting the machine back and reaching under it. Replace the hose will save a lot of time, or I'd suggest next time you want to clean out your filter do this:
Pull the machine out about 18 inches or so away from the wall and tilt it back until the back rests against the wall. (front feet now up in the air) Now, all the water will be back at the back of the machine and you can remove the filter to clean it out without spilling water.

SOURCE: how to clean pump filter on lg wm2688hwm

No, probably have a bad water pump, very common for this washer. I would pull the washer out, lean it against your wall, brace or block it up so you can crawl under it. You will see where the drain hose comes out of the bottom left of the drum and enters the drain filter. Remove the hoses and check for debris or clothes in the hoses or where the drum outlet is. If no restrictions then replace your water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

SOURCE: LG Washer/Dryer won't drain

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..

THE WASHING MACHINE WASHES THE CLOTHES BUT WHEN IT COMES TO "SPIN"THE MACHINE STOPS. SPIN ICON KEEPS ON BLINKING.


Check your drain pump. It is on the front lower side of the machine. There is a small door which opens to it. Unscrew the filter and the pump cover. Be careful when you do this. There is a small drain hose next to it. Use this hose to drain to a pan before opening the filter lid.

My lg washing machine is flashing OE i have looked at my manual and ir says to clean drain filter and clean drain hose! done the filter which hasnt helped and how on earth am i supposed to clean the pipe...


Could be a manufacturers glitch ,might want to cal a servoice center to see . Basically the washer is having problems draining ,check the drain hose going to the tub sink and make sure it isnt up in the air or something. Another posibbility is that the hose or drain has something in it backing it up to a sensor,could run some bleach through it to see if it clears

Washing machine flashing oe


OE = Drain Error • Not fully drained within 10 minutes.
Check and clean the pump filter. The access panel is located on the front, bottom left of the machine. Place a towel under the front of the pump filter access panel opening before opening to catch any water that may flow out.
Check drain hose on the back of the machine for any kinks or blockage.

OE code keeps flashing ; door remains locked


Hello, an OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confirm that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Thanks

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.
