I had the same problem and removed the large black hose from the bottom of the drum to the pump - 3 connectors (2 pressure clamps and 1 large screw clamp). Found a whole host of coins etc.

Then removed the top of the pump - just undo the 3 silver screws and wiggle off the pump top - no need to disconnect the wires. Just be careful that you put the scew you can't see back in the right hole.

All this can be done from the bottom by laying the machine on the side to the left of the door.

We just had the same problem. We called an appliance store and they walked us through the process of finding out what was stuck in our pump and sure enough there was a quarter inside the pump. It broke one of the propellers but we were able to get the quarter out and reinstalled the pump and is still working fine. It is a bit of a hassle and will take some time, but it is definitely worth the money saved! I am forever grateful to the appliance store that supplied us with this information!

You cannot just take the front panel off! You have to set the machine on it's side and work on it from the bottom. My husband and I did this together and are thrilled that we did not have to pay for a service call and at this point do not have to purchase a new pump.

OE is normally down to blocked drain pipes, mcalpine (connection under the sink) or a blocked front filter. empty the machine and unscrew the filter behind the flap at the bottom right hand side, check for any obstructions, icoins, hair grips etc are normally blocking here

I have a problem with my LG Tromm front load washer. It will wash seemingly normally up to the point it gets to the spin cycle. Then a motor comes on and the machine does not spin or drain. The display...


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..

My washer machine keeps displaying OE. We have checked all the hoses, and everything seems fine. Will not empty water or finish cycle


Error Message : the OE is (outlet error).

1) If OE error occurs, clean & empty the filter.
2) If this doesn't solve the problem, and it won't drain, then provided that you can hear the pump spinning (the normal whirring the machine makes that should be accompanied by the water going down the drain) then the hose pipe leading to the pump is probably blocked.

I'm sure a lot of dodgy service people might just charge you for a new pump & labor, but if you can hear the pump spinning then you just need to remove the blockage.

Good luck!

"OE" error message appearing at end of rinse cycle before spin


on the front lower left there is a panel. Pry it open from the top. Unscrew the large black round cap. Be prepared for water to rush out. There is a trap to clean out. To the left there is a rubber hose with a plug in the end. Remove plug and see if hose is clogged. Clean it out. Replace and it should run. If not, try blowing through the discharge hose in the back to make sure all is clear. If not??

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
