I ask folks to give me some feedback when troubleshooting dC/uC errors with a feel for Wash Basket CCW/Spin direction drive system resistance.
It sounds like the Outer Tub Bearings are going which means you have a Tub Seal Leak that took them out. The Clutch One-Way Roller clutches are probably contaminated. I would bet a bit rusty and are sticking not locking up completely in Spin Cycle causing tumbler movement at the start of Spin Cycle. See my Clutch Fix post I go into a lot of detail for a fix and just what is causing the unbalance errors in Spin Cycle
You could drop the clutch out and see if you can clean up the bearings and relieve the dC/uC unbalance errors for a while longer.
Replacing the bearings is a bit more work see these post for what is involved. If your series is a 12 or above you may have to do as this forum member did.
Series 10 & 11 from what I have learned use the upper One-Way Roller Clutch bearing ring and not the integrated Lower Outer Tub bearing as in I believe the Series 12 and above do.
Series 10 Outer Tub Bearing work I and another forum member are working on. The links will give you some direction if you DIY. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4028403-just_replaced_new_clutch_fav9800aww
What are the first two digits of your Serial Number? Will be 10 through 17.
Post back if we can help I’m an owner like you not a repair person. I feel the cost to have the Outer Tub Bearing replaced will trigger you to make a replacement decision……Rich

It's either a bad door switch, or motor control board. Definitely easier and cheaper to try changint he door switch first, as it fails much more often. Part number is 131763202

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 has some information on this error code..
