    Sure your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Plug off the wall first. Good luck, & dont forget to rate me......

Problem with LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer. It has stopped with water inside and it says OE. I have checked the back pipe, but with water inside, can i open filter

The OE error is telling you the water hasn't drained out in ten minutes. To fix I would first start with cleaning the filter on the pump. If that doesn't fix i would recommend replacing the pump. I would also have towels and a mop in hand because when you unscrew the filter top the water that is inside the tub will come out. You should try leaning washer back before removing filter to prevent the mess.If you have to replace the pump they run about 50 or 60 bucks. I hope this helps.

I thank you for your support on fixing my OE error. I cleaned out my filter on the bottom left hand corner of my machine. Problem fixed. Be aware that when you unscrew your filter, you may have a lot of water draining.

No, there is no access to the drain pump other than by removing the front panel to get to it.  It is a job that can be done but you will need to spend some time to disassemble the machine to get to it.
