The OE error is "Outlet Error" for the draining the water from the unit.

The unit is having trouble draining the water from the unit and that is why there is an error code.

You need to be sure there is nothing in the pump's filter (located at the bottom left on the front panel) that is restricting the water's flow.

If the pump's filter and housing is clear then it is the pump that has or is going bad.

The pump will fail because a seal will let water into the back side of the motor and case it to lock up.

If you need a part number for the drain pump, let me know.

OE is normally down to blocked drain pipes, mcalpine (connection under the sink) or a blocked front filter. empty the machine and unscrew the filter behind the flap at the bottom right hand side, check for any obstructions, icoins, hair grips etc are normally blocking here

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..

Washing machine My washing machine coming up with OE error before spins and drains water


this means the machine has tried to empty for 10 minutes check the filter and unblock it or else the drain hose is kinked or crushed, worse case scenerio is that you need a new water pump

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

LG Intello wm-1460FHD stops spinning during the wash load.


OE is a drain error (indicating the machine has not drained out in under 10 minutes). If the drain pump is not coming on at all then you have a bad drain pump motor. If it is trying to drain then you may have a clogged up drain hose. The most likely cause is a bad drain pump motor. Hope this helps.
