Intermittant 'OE' error code

Repair man said he removed a piece of tape that was blocking the drain hose. The machine worked fine when he ran it through the sanitary cycle, but two days later the 'OE' error reappeared while doing a regular load.

OE means it has not fully drained with in 10 minutes. Check your button trap and make sure nothing is there. If you want, make sure there is nothing in the unit and you can put it into test mode and check out to see if the drain pump is working.

This is what "OE" Means :

"OE" Drain error. Cause: not fully drained within 10 minutes Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

OE error


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 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..
