Try this remove the wires to he heating element and try it again if it works the pump then its the heating element at fault not the pump. some reason the heating element works in line with the pump setting on the main board. the element may work but when the pump reads it the resistance is wrong and shuts down.

Appliance Repair Kuna - LG Washer OE Error


OE errors. An OE error on a LG washers suggests a pump problem. Check the drain filter on front bottom of washer for any obstructions. If this is clear, call for service. The pump impeller may be damaged, pump windings shorted, or a obstruction in line.

I have wm1814cw lg front loader washing machine with oe light on and not draining we have clean filter unclogged drain hose and reset by unplugging and holding down power putton and start button als


The OE error or fault code indicates that the washing machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Sometimes objects that are put into the washing machine, for example combs, money, hair pins, etc. end up in the filter. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear and functioning properly, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

"OE" error. Filter cleaned but makes terrible


You still have something caught in the drain line on the machine. Check the filter again and the lines coming from the tub to the pump, and from the pump to the waste line. Here is a link to LG's document on the "OE" error.

I unscrewed the lower panel on the front and cleaned out the large black round cap on my LG Tromm Washer. I blow thru the small rubber hose and it sounds clear. I am still getting the OE when getting to...


As you know OE is drain error. you still have a drain problem and this could be because the pump impeller has a coin or similar jamming it, or it could be that the pump motor itself is failing. If the drain hose is clear and not kinked and the pump is working the machine should drain........Good luck....Nomess

Owners manual above. LG washing machine error code – OEThe 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 - LDS5811ST Dishwasher OE Error Code


hi
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
