Question about LG WM2233H Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Good Morning Sir/Ma'am, We own an LG WM2233HW with an "error code of OE" which means "Drain hose is bent or clogged" and/or "The drain filter is clogged". I have checked both. I straightened the drain hose in the back and even tried to fish out any clogs with a straightened metal coat hangar with no findings. I checked drain filter only to find it clean and empty. I took apart the drain pump and cleaned out the pump from debris/gunk/and hair wrapped/tangled around the pump. I put everything back together and still to no avail. The machine just sits still at the draining phase right before the drum would start its spin cycle. Just looking for some more ideas before I have to call a repair tech. and spend $400. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

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..

Check the drain hose for blockage. and see if the water filters is clogged. Specific instructions will vary based on your specific LG model. Most LG frontloaders have an access panel on the front for the water filter.

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..

For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check drain hose and filter, all clean. Try different cycles, TUB CLEAN, SPEED WASH. Same error code. No drain.


Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.
