There should be an access door for Pump on front lower left if your unit according to diagrams I am looking at. Remove that small access door. Pump has a screw out filter in front of pump that should be easily accessible. Screw that filter out and clean that and place it screws into. Have thick towels handy as there will be water that comes out when filter is remived. Reinstall filter and access door.

SOURCE: Duet error code F 02.

Just had this problem. Remove the kick plate in front of machine. The drain pump filter maybe clogged. Turn the white screw to remove filter, but be sure to have towels or a bucket handy. I clean mine out and now is working fine.

SOURCE: Front Loading Washer won't drain

The problem is most likely change in the drain pump and sump area (rubber boot going from tub to pump). It is axcessed by removing the lower front panel. Disconnecting and reconnecting the hoses to the pump are real tricky!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Clogged pump on Affinity Washer

Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.

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..

Hello, My L G washing machine has an error code OE... what does that mean?


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.

It says it is not draining properly. What should I do?


There are 3 places to check:
  1. Drain tube
  2. Drain hose
  3. Drain pump
Debris often clogs a line or pump once it works it's way out of clothing. This could be a piece of paper, a crayon, a piece of gum ie. First check where the hose pumps out into the drain tube/line. A clogged line would back up all the way into the washing machine. If this is clear, check the drain hose for debris. Lastly, if the top 2 are clear, it's most likely in the drain pump itself.

OE error message checked drain hose for kinks drain hose is clear


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. As you have already checked the drain hose and it is clear so check the drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. If the problem is still there after cleaning then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Our LG Tromm WM1814CW frontload washer is not draining in the spin cycle, but its only sometimes. We have tried cleaning the Filter and its clear, we looked in where the filter is to see if its clogged,...


hi Shellinator7.
check the small drain hose on the side of the pump that is clogged, then that is not a failure that will significantly affect the normal operation of the washer. If your washer is not draining okay and you don't mind catching some water that spills out of that pump filter area when you open it up, then you don't necessarily need to remove that front panel and bother with unclogging that small drain hose. If the large hose between the tub and the pump or the discharge hose between the pump and the house drain behind the washer is clogged, then you may need to open up that cabinet.
you could also check out this link and read up some more on this.

Clogged drain in front load LG Washer. Cleaned filter and the drain hose in bottom is not draining any water. Clogged up


hi
To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain, use a pipe auger (snake) through the drain hose and look out for any debris/cloth that might be clogging the hose.
Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.
look for any clogging from the orifice which opens up for the drain.
if this doesn't solve the problem, you have to open the machine to look for blockage in the drums, which is better handled by a serviceman.

cheers

Wht does the code OE Mean I can't find my manual for my LG 2077 washer


HI. this code represents a drainage problem. The drain hose may be bent or clogged with debris or, it may be a clogged drain filter as well. I recommend cleaning and straightening the drain hose and i would also clean the drain filter. this should fix the issues you are having with this washer.


please rate and god bless.
