    I cleaned the front drain. I still have the same error code oe

  • epblj Aug 11, 2008

    Same problem here! Took off the drain hoses and rinsed them out, they were clear. We clean out the 'trap' once a month so it's not that. The washer makes a grinding type noise when trying to drain, also like something is caught in the pump or something. How do you access the pump?

  • Anonymous Sep 26, 2008

    I ran into the same problem. I took the washing machine outside and opened the front trap and ran about 10 gallons of water through the system. Then I back washed the system by running water through the drain hose at a high pressure for 2 or 3 minutes. I had some very ugly grime/sludge come out of the drain hose. I flushed the system until it was clear. Then I put some drain-O into the drain hose and let it set for a few minutes and flushed it again. I put it all back together and brought it back into the house and the system worked perfectly.

    I was very worried it was the pump, but turned out not to be the case...

    Good Luck...

I had the same problem. First the grinding noise during the rinse cycle and then after four weeks the OE code. LG had a local repair service come out and he determined that the drain pump was dead and ordered a replacement. Still waiting on part after only 3 days.

This may be obvious but have you cleaned the filter that precedes the pump? Open the small access panel on the bottom left ( front of the washer) and twist out the filter trap.. clean all debris.. and the little bit of water that trickles out onto your floor.. Hope that helps...

SOURCE: LG WM2277 "OE" ERROR. PLEASE HELP

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..

SOURCE: For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check

Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.

OE error please


There may be a few different reasons why the OE error code can display on your washing machine. Is it the LG washer getting the OE error code? The OE error code on the LG washing machine display is an indication of a NO DRAIN issue. The 3 issues that may cause this fault code is a bent drain hose, the drain pump filter is blocked, or the drain pump may have foreign objects lodged in it making it unable to drain. All these issues can cause your LG washer to display the error code OE. With all these different reasons, checking all 3 components will clear the error and fix your LG washing machine.

What are the common fixes for OE Error Code?


OE error code is an Outlet Error.

That has to do with the drain itself. It can come up when the unit is draining slowly, it has nothing to do with water-level really. I would suggest makign sure that your drain hose is not crimped / crushed / or obstructed first before going onto other problems.

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.

Won't drain code OE


Hi co3256,

The "OE" error code you are seeing, means "Outlet Error"

The drain pump is either clogged, or the outlet hose has been kinked.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks. - If any, straighten the hose
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it.

Kind Regards :-)

Fault code oe please explain what this means


"OE" Drain error. Cause: not fully drained within 10 minutes Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/applianceshvac/help-center/fault-codes/fault-codes-washer.html if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your applaince situation it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks
