Question about LG WM1815CS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I am having an issue with my LG front loader washing machine model number WM1815cs. The water will not drain and the clothes will not spin out. Everything works fine until the rinse/spin cycle and it just stops and reads "0E". Any suggestions??

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a Drain Error which indicates that the water was not fully drained within 10 minutes. To start with check the drain pump filter for any clogs/foreign materials and try to clean the filter. Also if you have already checked the drain hose for any blockage then check the pump for any blockages, if still its not resolved then it seems to be the pump that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Washer not draining


Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'OE' for LG washing machines definitely decodes as 'drain error', sorry!
I know you say that you check the drain hose and filter but have you checked the drain motor/pump as well?
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My front loader washer gets stuck on its last spin and wont drain properly. I am trying to wash a comforter and blanket. This is the 1st time its happened. Thank you


You may to mention the brand and model of machine. Mine is an Lg, I just shut off machine. Turn it back on and then press the no spin and start, this drains the washer. You may have too much clothes in the machine.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean


You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.
