Water pump hums and then doesn't pump out water, the machine keeps saying OE, but there is nothing stuck in the filter. Is the water pump bad or maybe a relay?

Get a shop vac and try to **** water out through the drain hose, if water comes out at least you know your drain hose is not restricted, if you can get all the water out you may have something inside your pump not letting the impeller turn, especially if you can hear the pump humming, Drain water out and open unit up to check pump for restriction

Problem with LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer. It has stopped with water inside and it says OE. I have checked the back pipe, but with water inside, can i open filter


The OE error is telling you the water hasn't drained out in ten minutes. To fix I would first start with cleaning the filter on the pump. If that doesn't fix i would recommend replacing the pump. I would also have towels and a mop in hand because when you unscrew the filter top the water that is inside the tub will come out. You should try leaning washer back before removing filter to prevent the mess.If you have to replace the pump they run about 50 or 60 bucks. I hope this helps.

I have a Starbucks Barista Espresso Sin 006 that I got used from someone. They hadn't used in it awhile and didn't have the manual. I'm told that before using I should Prime it. The instructions says...


Hi
Since the machine hadn't been used in a while you might have a stuck check valve in the pump. You say it hums. Does it rattle or just hum? If it hums something is stuck in the lines that is keeping the pump from moving water. If it rattles and makes a lot of noise its the pump check valve or it could be a plugged flow meter/ intake line.

It won't drain...keeps stopping and says OE


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.

Lg wahser wm1832cw flashes oe on readout. nothing in drain


Hi,


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 !!

I keep getting an error OE on my LG WM0532HM front load washing machine and it won't spin out the water, just stops after a few minutes


The OE error is "Outlet Error" for the draining the water from the unit.

The unit is having trouble draining the water from the unit and that is why there is an error code.

You need to be sure there is nothing in the pump's filter (located at the bottom left on the front panel) that is restricting the water's flow.

If the pump's filter and housing is clear then it is the pump that has or is going bad.

The pump will fail because a seal will let water into the back side of the motor and case it to lock up.

If you need a part number for the drain pump, let me know.

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.

You do not have an "OE" error, you have a "DE" error. DE error is "drain error" which displays if the washer has not pumped out after 10 minutes. If there is water in the machine and no obstruction in the filter I would suspect that the pump impeller is bad, and you would need a new pump motor. (part # 4681EA2001D) Pump motor is located directly to the left of the filter, and can be accessed by tilting the washer back and reaching it from underneath. The pump housing is held onto the machine by three phillips head screws.

If you have "DE" error and there is no water in the machine that's a whole different problem I'll address if you say that's the case.

If you need good service, try calling a small dealer who sells and services the procuct line you are having a problem with. You can find LG servicers at us.lgservice.com but avoid the utility companies, A & E, Sears, and all the big guys who try to service every brand but often times are not very familiar with your brand.

That should help. Carl S., factory authorized LG technician for over 10 years.
