No matter what setting I use and no matter what cycle I set it on the washer uses only hot water! I checked the obvious - if hoses were connected hot water hose to hot water valve and they are indeed connected correctly after the last filter cleaning. Could it be clogged cold water hose? I will be grateful for any suggestions.

For LG washers, the OE error indicates a problem draining the wash tub. This could be caused by a problem with the drain hose, a clogged filter on the drain pump, or a problem with the pump itself.
First make sure that the drain hose isn't kinked or too high for the pump to force the water up. (Most washers can pump the water 4-6'.) Next grab a bucket and open the washer to reach the pump. (Usually you either need to remove a plate below the door or an access hatch on the back.) Find the pump and open the filter that is on the front. Remove any foreign objects from the filter. (Use the bucket to catch any water that spills.) Look into the pump itself and check for any obvious objects.
Try a new rinse cycle and see if the error persists. If it does, then the pump or the pump motor has an problem. If you add a comment with the model number of your washer, I may be able to find the correct part numbers for the replacements. If your washer is under warranty, contact LG.
Hi Try using bleach with hot water, run a cycle with hot water and bleach. Or spray bleach +water mixture on the seal. Run a cleaning cycle with hot water and bleach or vinegar at least once a month to reduce the growth of mold in other parts of the washer. You can also try using 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it. This would remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. This would clean the mold from the door seal as well. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps... Daniel
Wash empry with detergent and double bleach with extra hot water. When cycle is complete open the door to the washer and let airdry. When you close the door with it wet it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. You may also not be using the correct detergent or the correct amount of detergent.
It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.
Embarrassing as it was, the hot/cold water hoses were switched - although it was installed by HomeDepot that way. It just didn't seem consistent enough for it to be such an easy solution...but it did the trick!
