Question about LG WM2487H Front Load Washer
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 Washing machine has an OE error code

Possible this is relative of a poor drain time which means a clogged draining pump and system. So it si best to remove and clean the drain pump/filter and reset.
check if the machine drain hose is connected to a outlet which is not clogged when the water is flushed out . Also the washing machine must be slightly tilted to drain to the pump to reduce the drain timing.
Finally check if the machine was overloaded to produce a strain on the motor so as to give an error. If so shut down remove plug remove load , check if the agitator is jammed and reset.
