Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have an LG Tromm Washer that continures to display the OE message regardless of what I've done. THe filter in clean, I've dranined the water several times, and I've pulled out the drain hose from the rear and chck for clogging. Still keeps holding water on any cycle and eventually pops up the OE error message. What else could cause this? Is there a reset button?

    mark1963,



    Thanks!



    It wasn't easy to turn the impeller in scuh a tight area but I was able to easily rotate it about 180 degrees so my motor must be bad as it never actually turns on during a cycle to attempt to drain. It is three years old so I'm glad I bought the 5 year service plan!

It's actually a DE error code which stands for drain error. Pull the little basket out that's behind the small door on the lower left front (where the drain hose is) and look inside. The drain pump intake is about an inch in on the left. Make sure there's nothing in there like a paperclip or hair pin. If possible reach in and see if you can turn the impeller. If it won't move there's something in there if it will turn then the motor is probably bad.

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 problem with my LG Tromm front load washer. It will wash seemingly normally up to the point it gets to the spin cycle. Then a motor comes on and the machine does not spin or drain. The display...


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..

My Tromm washer blinks an OE message, the door will open, but the wash won't finish and there is water still in the washer. Please help


OE error means the water hasn't pumped out. 1st you need to check the filter behind the flap in the bottom corner. This may be blocked a check your outlet hose where it goes into the somethimes they get blocked there sometimes. When the filters out get a torch and shine it into the hole where the filter came from to see if theres a blockage in there. If all is clear will prob require a new pump.
