SOURCE: LG front load washer OE error. cleaned filter need

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..

How do i fix "OE"code.


if it is like my dishwasher the oe code means the unit is over filled with water. My dishwasher had a major fault that blew up a circuit board and had a faulty front assembly. Still in repair shop waiting for parts.. I would deduct that the washing machine is not emptying water so I think a water pump could be failing. My dishwasher was not activating the washer motor and came up with the same code but..

Water won't drain and it says oe


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?


OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

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.

WF328 AAG OE error code...how do reset this? or can I reset this?


The code OE is a draining error. The washer has sensed that the water has not completely drained all of the water within 10 minutes and will display this error code.


  1. Locate your drain pump access door on the front of the machine.
  2. Clean out the filter area.

If you are unable to resolve the issue by cleaning, I would recommend replacing the drain pump.

Washer has water still in drum and OE on digital readout


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a drain error, it flashes when the washer won’t drain within 10 minutes. TO resolve this issue you’ll have to check the drain pump filter for any clogs, also check the drain hose for any kinks and clean the drain pump filter. If still the issue is not resolved then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Code is OE


The washer only uses 1 gallon of water to wash clothes. You go putting in more than a teaspoon of detergent in there then you is gonna get a sud lock situation. You must use low sudsing HE stuff very sparringly. The washer will detect oversudsing and dump extra cold water in there to try and resolve it. An OE error means it took longer than 10 minutes to pump out the water. 2 things these washers hate is too much detergent and clogged filter/pump.
