Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hello! I have an LG frontload washer and it was going fine until a few days ago. It had 14 min left of a cycle and displayed the error message OE. Checked my owners manual and it said that the drain pipe was bent or clogged or the drain was clogged. We (my husband and I) Cleaned all that we could get to and each time it gets to the drain part of a cycle nothing happens. No noise, no nothing. It just sits there for a few min and finally displays the same error message. We have checked fuses and unplugged for a while and tried again to the same end. Can you tell me what the problem could be?

    Yes, water is still in drum. We drained it manually a couple of times, but each time we run a new cycle the water just sits there.

    you could have something in your pump stopping it working you dont say if water is still in drum.

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..

What do we when we replaced the pump on a frontload washer, LG, but still get an error message OE?


The DE Code indicates a Drain Error. This means that the washer thinks the water has not drained out of the tub within 10 minutes, which is an eternity for the washer. Since you have indicated that there is no obstruction in the hoses, and filter, and you have replaced the pump, then the only other parts that could be at fault would be the water level sensor, or the main circuit board. Replace in that order.
