Code OE water is not being drained out

During wash cycle when it gets to rinse the water does not pump out because of the OE code. I cleaned the drain filter and checked the drain hose. I think the clog is between the two.

    Thanks for your response but I actually tipped my washer back and loosened the large main hose at the bottom of the washer drum and found a sock. Thank goodness....

You may have a broken or plugged drain pump and needs to be diagnosed by a qualified LG technician.

Washer will stop after rinse cycle and says OE. Then is will not drain rinse water.


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.

Stopping during rinse cycle . not spinning. OE light


The code OE is a draining error. The washer has sensed that the water has not completely drained all of the water within 10 minutes and will display this error code. The grinding noise you are describing is most likely a failed drain pump or clogged with foreign debris.


  1. Locate your drain pump access door on the front of the machine.
  2. Clean out the filter area.

If you are unable to resolve the issue by cleaning, I would recommend replacing the drain pump.

1 1/2 year old lg WM2496H showed oe error code while washing a heavy unbalanced load. I removed the wet blanket (sitting in water) and tried drain/spin command with empty washer but washer will not go into...


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..

I removed the lower left panel on my LG TROMM FRONT loader washing machine and cleaned out the large black round top/trap. i also blew thru the hose and it sounded clear. i ran another load and it still...


Is it pumping out water,im guessing not! OE outlet error.The pump impellor might be jambed with a hair pin or nail.if not,the pump may just be stuffed & impellor not turning & not pumping water out.Im presuming its not pumping water out on any part of the cycles at all.Also make sure you havnt attached extra hose to the the drain hose to water your garden,these pumps are weak.hope i helped.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and "OE" code shows up. we've cleaned filter and keep draining drain hose. is there anything else to do or check?


You may have to inspect the entire drain system back to the pump, it may be partially clogged. When the unit drains it should drain a substantial amount of water. View the drain discharge, if it appears the discharge rate is not what it used to be, inspect the drain system

My lg intellowasher wd1290 error code OE


I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oe code


I had the same problem. First the grinding noise during the rinse cycle and then after four weeks the OE code. LG had a local repair service come out and he determined that the drain pump was dead and ordered a replacement. Still waiting on part after only 3 days.
