    I have an LG LDS5811ST Dishwasher, it is 3 years old, when I turn it on now after 2 minutes of hearing the humming sound (normally did that at the beginning) an OE error code appears, I checked the drain line and it is clear can get water through without any problems. is it the the pump or electronics?

Hi
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

In older units prior to mar 07 LG has had a problem with wires getting stuck in the insulation and breaking. Remove door panel and check for broken wires. (turn off power) Check for continuity splice and put insulation in between. This is most likely the problem.

Remove right side cover. There is a clear trap for the drain. Unscrew vent inside dishwasher to remove. Cleaned out food which was blocking one-way valve. Problem solved!

What do i do to fix error code OE on my LG dishwasher


Based on what it mentioned on the LG website it is an error indicating a drainage error. The solution might be to clean the drain filters at the base, check drain hose under kitchen sink and behind dishwasher for kinks or blockages. On make sure the kitchen sink drain is not blocked. Worst scenario is a clogged drain pump. you will have to provide the model number for any further analysis.

What is error code OE for my LDF 7561ST


The OE error code indicates a "Drain Error". Check the drain hose for kinks or blockage. Check also the drain outlet of the sump inside the dishwasher for blockages.
If the above is all well, disconnect the electrical supply to the machine, close the water supply. Now check the wiring firstly for security and condition then the resistance of the drain motor by removing the electrical plug supplying power to the motor.
Measuring between the "Live" and "Neutral" pins of the plug on the motor side, the motor coil should have a resistance reading on a multimeter of between 20 and 40 Ohms, if not, the motor will have to be replaced.

Have a LG dishwasher with a OE error. Took machine ouside and it works well with the garden tap hooked to it. Put it back inside and does not work. I noticed a major kink in the inlet hose, would this be...


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..

We had a short in the wiring where the dishwasher plugs into the wall. After fixing the wiring, the dishwasher now has a message "OE" when I turn it on.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error OE in your LG dishwasher is a drain error, which is displayed when the unit won’t drain out in spite of 5 minutes drain operation. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose for any blockages, also check the wiring connection to the pump. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to replace the drain pump/motor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Error code 0E


OE is OUTLET ERROR.
More often than not, a blockage is in the pump(not that easy to get to and quite a long step by step process)
You might also find the blockage at the end of the drain hose, where it connects to the drain pipe- remove the hose clamp and inspect hose and spigot.

Oe error...manual says clogged but cant find clog


It is important to start where the drain hose connects to the drain. Probably connects indirectly to the garbage disposal. Look for blockage there and work your way back to the dishwasher.

IF you can't find a blockage, then it is time to remove your lower spray arm and the approximately 9 screws that secure the filter assembly to the sump floor. Rinse everything that you remove.

Using a flashlight, inspect the entire sump area for debris (watch out for broken glass!) Look closely where the drain pump is located. You will probably find some sort of blockage jamming that pump.

Reassemble and test. It is rare, but an OE error could be created by a failing drain pump motor. But try everything else first.

Good Luck!

Error code LE and OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged.
LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with the machine.Please do post the results and comments.
