Re: OE message on our LG WM1832CW washer

I just was searching for the same exact error on my LG WM1832CW washer. From reading the other posts on different manufacturers I realized this was a pump clog issue for mine too. There is a small door near the bottom of the front of the washer and if you open that there is a filter basket. Once you start turning it and break the seal, the water will come out quickly, have 2 flat large tupperwares so you can catch the water. Once you clean out that filter it's good to go. A 5 minute job.
