I had the same problem, and ended up taking the front of the machine off, and removing the pump assembly. I then pulled the motors off and cleaned the impellers. It will now drain, the only problem that we still have, is that leaks. With the machine off, I poured a small pot of water into the drum, and it slowly leaks onto the floor. It has done this even before I pulled the pumps

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.

Appliance Repair Kuna - LG Washer OE Error


OE errors. An OE error on a LG washers suggests a pump problem. Check the drain filter on front bottom of washer for any obstructions. If this is clear, call for service. The pump impeller may be damaged, pump windings shorted, or a obstruction in line.

How to fix drain hose on LG WM2487H M


The following are a number of things to check for the OE (drain error) indication.
If the washer does not drain then the drain pump may be clogged, damaged, or defective.
Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Open the drain pump filter tray at the lower left of the machine and check whether it is clean, check also that the pump impeller spins freely. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.
First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions. If the drain hose has any obstructions, try to remove them. If necessary, replace the drain hose.
Check the machine's water level frequency by pressing the WASH/RINSE + DELAY WASH buttons simultaneously. Check the reading on the display, if it is below 260 (26 Khz) then have someone measure the resistance of the pump motor coil.
It should be between 10-20 Ohms resistance, if too high or too low, replace the pump assembly as it cannot be repaired.

The washer stops at 39 minutes on a regular wash cycle and the code OE is displayed


This fault code can mean that the pump is faulty as well as blocked, first of all check for a blockage and, if none is found then the likelihood is that the drain pump is faulty. Should you need it, the most common drain pump used on LG washers and washer dryers is this one.
On non-display panel models this fault code is denoted by the lights for 800, 500 and No Spin being lit or flashing.
  • Check pump filter is clear and there are no obstructions
  • Check the drain hose for obstruction
  • Check the drain hose is not kinked
  • Check the drain pump filter and clean if required
  • Check the air chamber and pressure sensor hose
  • Check drain pump, normal resistance is 152-175?
  • Check drain pump rotor
  • Check connections to water drain pump

Keeps stopping and showing OE


Hi tpearsgolf,

The "OE" error code you are seeing, means "Outlet Error"

The drain pump is either clogged, or the outlet hose has been kinked.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks. - If any, straighten the hose
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it. You can remove the filter, as well as the metalish sieve underneath it, check the sump underneath near the drainage holes, make sure nothing is obstructing the flow out of the machine from there.

If not successful, you will need to replace the Drain Pump.

Kind Regards :-)

If you found this solution helpful, please rate it.

What does oe mean on my washing machine display


Hi,
"OE" code in your washer indicates a Drain error. This is because the washer is not fully drained within 10 minutes. You have to check whether there is 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.
Thank you !!
