It's DE, drain error. Hopefully all you'll have to replace is the drain motor. I thought my 4 yr. old machine had an imbalance problem too, until I checked the manual. I also cleaned the drain hose and filter, ran hot water backwards through the machine, etc, no improvement. The machine would stall out when it was time to drain. Repairman replaced the drain motor, it failed again in 3 loads. We are still waiting for an accurate diagnosis, after 3 repair visits, and 4 weeks. I recommend getting on the horn quickly as LG does not train/endorse many repair people, and the parts have not been in stock at the mom 'n pop store I bought mine from. For $1100, I had hoped for better. Good luck with yours.

My LG Tromm front loader has an OE error message and isn't spinning. First received the message during a full load of laundry. Had to drain the water from the hose at the bottom and finally got it unlocked...


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

I have a Westinghouse Mastermind 711 Front Loader Washing Machine which is flashing OE and the clothes inside are very wet. Can you please let me know what this flashing OE means....Many Thanks, ELena


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.

OE over and over. I've drained both openings, restarted, unplugged, cleared out clothes and added new clothes. Still get OE and more water to drain. What to do?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. As you already know OE is a Drain Error which indicates that the water was not fully drained within 10 minutes. To start with check the drain pump filter for any clogs/foreign materials and try to clean the filter. Also as you have already checked the drain hose for any blockage then check the pump for any blockages, if still its not resolved then it seems to be the pump that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My washer machine keeps displaying OE. We have checked all the hoses, and everything seems fine. Will not empty water or finish cycle


Error Message : the OE is (outlet error).

1) If OE error occurs, clean & empty the filter.
2) If this doesn't solve the problem, and it won't drain, then provided that you can hear the pump spinning (the normal whirring the machine makes that should be accompanied by the water going down the drain) then the hose pipe leading to the pump is probably blocked.

I'm sure a lot of dodgy service people might just charge you for a new pump & labor, but if you can hear the pump spinning then you just need to remove the blockage.

Good luck!

My washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle


OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..
