Error Code "OE"

Right before the rinse cycle, our washing machine always goes "OE". We open it up and move laundry around. Even happens when we are washing a few items on the delicate cycle.

The manual says that the reason why it's coming up with that error message is that the machine hasn't drained properly in ten minutes. The manual suggests that you make sure there isn't anything clogging the filter, which is in the little door on the bottom left hand side of the machine, and if that doesn't do it, check the drain hose to see if it's either frozen, crushed, or kinked. if that still doesn't do it, then you must have it serviced.

Sounds like your machine needs rebalancing..check the feet and floor to ensure it's level and balanced

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

It seems there is not accepting cold water on wash . The solenoid for the wash is probably open circuit. Check the solenoids with a meter for continuity. I bet you will find one open circuit. Then you can go get a new one and replace it. Might also be the pressure sensor failure, but that is not consistent with a successful rinse cycle. Make and model would have helped ..... Cheers

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..

Washer get to rinse cycle then reads OE on the


OE means OUTLET ERROR. If you have water in the machine, you can either drain the water using the small hose inside the lint filter door(bottom right hand side), removing the end cap. A second, and quicker method, is to lean the machine up against the rear wall at approximately 45 degree angle(TAKE CARE to secure), unscrew the lint filter cap, looking down the barrel you will most likely find: a coin(s), wire, rubber band(around impellor) etc. If your pump is unusually noisy, one of these items will have damaged the pump. ALWAYS take care checking clothing for these items before placing in washing machine as bowl damage is costly and NOT covered by warranty.

HI, this is a Door Open Error.

Possible Causes are..-

* Door not all the way closed
* Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Control Board)
* Door switch assembly is out of order(Miss aligned)
* Gasket on door may be creased in

Most common issue here will be a defective door lock switch. check all causes before replacing the switch.

My LG 2277HW gave the LE error and we replaced the entire motor based on a Washing Machine Repair Company's advice. Within the month the machine would not spin the clothes all the way out and eventually...

The LE issue should of been for the followinig, not a motor:
LE LOCKED MOTOR ERROR


• The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY.


• The electric contact between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS and 4-pin, female, white connector in the MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is bad or unstable.


• The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited).


• The ball sensor is out of order/defective.

The OE error means it is not draining. Two diffrent issues.
Are you sure you cleaned out the drain filter on the bottom? Not just drained it. You have to drain it then pull the filter out and clean it.

My lg intellowasher wd1290 error code OE


I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.
