Oe means drain error (outlet error)
Poss causes:
drain hose kinked,
filter blocked,
pump impellor blocked.

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.
Good luck

Hello,

Some models of washing machine come with a digital readout display that informs the operator of the unit's function and any errors. Error codes indicate that a problem has occurred and should be addressed. Different models of washing machine may vary in their fault displays. Some washer models use flashing lights at the unit's start, door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control indicators to display error codes.


  • The washing machines is a modern convenience that many homeowners are not willing to live without. Rather than spending hours at the sink, busy homeowners can simply rinse dishes, place them in the dishwasher, and turn on the machine. Modern washing machines such as the Frigidaire brand display error codes when something is wrong, so you can call a service technician right away, rather than trying to figure out the problem yourself when the washing machines breaks.
  • Codes Related to Vents
  • Frigidaire washing machines display one of two error codes if there is a problem with the ventilation system. A code of "uo" means the vent is open, while "oe" stands for open error. If your Frigidaire dishwasher displays either of these codes, have your service representative check the vent and vent fan


  • However, what you are to do is to ope the door of the washer then close it properly then the error code will be solve.

    Thank you and thanks for using fixya.

    OE error please


    There may be a few different reasons why the OE error code can display on your washing machine. Is it the LG washer getting the OE error code? The OE error code on the LG washing machine display is an indication of a NO DRAIN issue. The 3 issues that may cause this fault code is a bent drain hose, the drain pump filter is blocked, or the drain pump may have foreign objects lodged in it making it unable to drain. All these issues can cause your LG washer to display the error code OE. With all these different reasons, checking all 3 components will clear the error and fix your LG washing machine.

    Lg d/washer about 8yrs old Oe code. Checked grey wire thiery. Cleaned hose filter etc. Was working fine moved house.Whats next.


    A drainage problem causes "OE" to be displayed on the digital display panel. The drain hose is likely kinked, clogged or frozen. Inspect the hose and remove kinks. Unclog the hose, if needed. Replace the hose if the problem is not resolved. If the dishwasher still does not drain,

    What does 'OE' display mean after washing circle?


    The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked".
    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.

    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Wash cycle works ok but will not spin and oe appears in digital display then it switches off. We have just had drum and shaft and bearings replaced, repair man ran it then when we trid to use it it has...


    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

    Make sure you check to see if anything is caught inside the drain line, or the bottom bellow (black hose that connects from the tub to the drain pump/motor.)

    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..
