Humming can indicate a stalled motor...If a coin is jammed in the pump impeller it will often do what you describe...Check via pump filter access door...Good luck....Nomess

Whenever it gets to almost the end of the cycle and usually while it is in rinse, the error message OE comes up and it won't drain the water from the tub or go any further


Had same problem last night with my LG WM1814CW but mine didnt get to the end of the cycle, it would fill and start humming when it was supposed to be draining then the OE would appear. We drained the machine through the front door hose, turned the machine on its side and removed the drain pump. Very easy access and very easy to remove the drain pump. There was a half a bobby pin against the impeller and that stopped the turning. Took the bobby pin out and put it all back together. It works like a charm now. Very nice system that LG has.

Our LG Tromm WM1814CW frontload washer is not draining in the spin cycle, but its only sometimes. We have tried cleaning the Filter and its clear, we looked in where the filter is to see if its clogged,...


hi Shellinator7.
check the small drain hose on the side of the pump that is clogged, then that is not a failure that will significantly affect the normal operation of the washer. If your washer is not draining okay and you don't mind catching some water that spills out of that pump filter area when you open it up, then you don't necessarily need to remove that front panel and bother with unclogging that small drain hose. If the large hose between the tub and the pump or the discharge hose between the pump and the house drain behind the washer is clogged, then you may need to open up that cabinet.

LG Tromm wm1814cw LE flashing on digital display,


Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.
