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..

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?


OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

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..

Error code oe


That's not OE, that's DE = Drain Error. Open the access door at the lower left on front of the machine. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine, then open the large knob which is attached to the filter. If there is nothing in the filter, you may have an object which made it past the filter and is blocking the pump impeller, or the impeller may have come off the pump motor shaft, which would require pump motor replacement.
