If your LG is similar to mine, there could be water in a hose that is located behind the small door on the bottom front of the washer. Open the door and drain the hose. Be sure to have a bowl or pan to let the water run into. Once the water is drained hopefully the washer door will open. When i brought my washer this was one of the selling features the sales person told me about.( The door and hose are accessible to the consumer to prevent them from having to call for a repair) Hopefully this will be your only problem. I bought an LG washer on June 28, 2008. It is now August 21st and my machine is still broken. It broke the FIRST time I ever used it (July 13th) and it still has not been repaired. (Per the repair person it is a water sensor problem which has been "ordered") I wish I had purchased another kenmore instead. I had my kenmore 16 years and never ONCE has a problem with it. I simply wanted to update my laundry room. WHAT A MISTAKE for me to purchase LG!!!!

Do I have to take apart the whole machine to fix the drain pump on my LG WM3455HW washer/dryer combo? I can't seem to find any instructions on this model.

Lucky You. The newer models of LG Combo units WM34xx have the filter on the right hand side and the pump can be changed through the bottom panel.

How do I open to remove the water on an LG tromm front load washing machine to repair/replace the pump?

LG machines normally have a small diameter rubber pipe folded up in the drain pump basket area on the lower left side of the front panel.
Pull out the pipe and remove the small plastic end stopper to allow the water in the tub to drain.

Water wont drain

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

It is a long drain error and appears when the washer is not fully drained after 10 minutes of draining. It can be due to a clogged or kinked drain hose, clogged pump filter, or the pump is not working properly.

WM 0642HW Drain Pump?

I have seen these drain pumps fail before, sand builds up behind drain pump impeller and prevents the impeller from spinning fast enough to drain machine. you will need to replace this pump but it is not easy tadk, I recommend you call for service to authorized LG servicer that is factory trained. These machines are delicate and need professional service, call Geek Squad they will service it (yes they service appliances). Since Best Buy sells so many LG machines, they have great experience with this. Try calling Sears as well, they have training on same product.

Lg washer serial # 308kw00211

That OE is really DE (drain error). Open the access door at the lower left on the front of the washer. Drain remaining water using the small hose. (at least if it is not plugged) Unscrew and remove the large knob. Clean out filter. If filter was clean, you may need a new pump motor, or something may have made it past the filter and is jamming the pump impeller. You can remove the pump without taking the front off the machine. Do an "Ask Me" if you need to do that, and I'll give you further advise.
