Followed suggestions for LE message and it solved my problem with the OE message - cleaned the drain filter located on the front of the machine near the floor.

You may have a broken pump impeller - you will have to order the whole pump (the filter on this machine allows BIG stuff through and it can ultimately damage the impeller)

Have you run this through diagnostics and determined if it is the drain or recirculating pump?

To run diagnostics:

Press and hold the "Spin Speed" and "Soil Level" buttons at the same time - then hit the power on the button

All lights should display - Press the Start Pause button throught the following cycles:

1 - Tumble clockwise
2 - Low speed spin
3 - High speed spin
4 - Prewash inlet (let it run for a few seconds to put some water in the tub)
5 - Wash Inlet
6 - Hot Water inlet
7 - Bleach inlet
8 - tumble counter clockwise
9 - Heater
10 - Circulation pump (see if your noise occurs here)
11- Drain pump (let this run until the tub is empty)
12 - Power off, finished

Once you figure out which pump, order the correct replacelement

SOURCE: lg wm3677hw combo washer drain pump repair question

You replace the whole drain pump. Pretty easy to do from the opening in the bottom by resting the unit on its back. (Make sure you drain the unit completely) You should be able to get the drain pump (pt #4681EA2001D) from for less than $50 + s&h.

My lg frontloader will not drain. I read the comment, but how do I get to the impeler?

I just got through replacing this and found the service manual at (it applies to several LG wasers, but this was a huge help to me to step by step get to the pump motor). Also, there are two identical motors (with impellers) on the WM2277HW, one pumps the dirty water out, the other recirculates the water back into the drum to help mix the "cycle water" with the appropriate liquid (after it is dispensed). Hope this helps

LG washer with OE error


If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem

Thank You !!

My lg WM2277HW is not draining water. It's filling with water and spinning but not draining the water. An oe error is being displayed. I checked the hoses and they seem fine. I checked the filter and there...

Remove and inspect the drain pump. (access is from the bottom of the washer once you remove all screws holding the pump housing in the front)
If no debris found when removing pump or pump impeller is damaged - replace. PArt number 4681EA2001D.
If found debris when removing the pump - reassemble and check again.
Good luck.

I have the LG Tromm, WM2277HW. I followed the

I took the entire washing machine apart. I checked the drain pump as the repair service said I needed a new one, as well as a rear and front drum, shocks rear bearing assembly. Would you believe the only thing wrong with the unit was that the drain pump was clogged at both ends. Machine is running fine and not throwing the LE Code. The repair service (LG recommended dealer) should be shot for telling me to throw out the unit.
