The problem is in the drain system as what error code OE stands for.The grinding noise is coming from the drain pump. Loose change, hair pins and the likes can get into the pump filter and sometimes into the pump impeller causing a grinding noise during the spin cycle because the pump works while the machine is spinning. The pump impeller may also be broken causing the grinding noise.

Disconnect power then open the filter door on the bottom left of the cabinet.

Remove the drain plug and drain the water out completely into a shallow basin or the likes. Once drained, lay a piece of towel under the filter then turn the filter knob counterclockwise and remove it. Clean the filter and reach in the pump impeller to check it if blocked or broken. If cleaning the filter does not solve the problem, you need to access the drain pump assembly and check the pump particularly the impeller thoroughly.

    from my adventure;
    Are you getting the "OE" message? This seems to be a common problem with these machines based on all the posts I've seen. I had a similar issue and I am down to replacing the main drain water pump. Have you been cleaning the filter at the bottom of the machine regularly (our problem started here)? Are you using "low sudsing" soap? Are you following LG's suggestions for how much soap to use? and hopefully . . . . is it still under warranty? There are a lot of good posts here with training manuals and everything. Good luck. didn't answer the question did I?
    Is the OE message coming on? -> (YES) -> *** TURN OFF AND UNPLUG MACHINE 120vac AND WATER DON'T MIX EVER! ** a) Drain via little black hose in front.b) Remove filter(big black round thing next to drain hose) and clean within an inch of its life. Take a flash light and shine in the hole to see if anything is stuck in the baffle (good choice of names), if so remove the object carefully so as not to tear the rubber. c) with a wet towel (you'll have some in front of you by now) clean the filter receptacle of all the crud. d) PRAY!! e) plug machine back in it should make it's happy sound. f) pick a short rinse/spin cycle (keep praying) and push "go". If all goes well it will fill do some agitating and then start to drain. If it drains your done. I'll be over with my clothes as I am waiting for parts to fix my drain. I didn't pray hard enough I guess. If (NO) -> Sensor may be bad but I've not seen anyone with the drain not working and the OE not lit. Keep trolling here you'll find something. Cheers Myles

I hate to say it but it sounds like the controller. I used to have one that had a similar problem that was fixed with a diverter and a controller. Another year or two later it was doing the same thing, so we just replaced it. Just a warning.

Try setting a lower spin speed. You may have a bulky load which the washer is having a difficult time getting up to the high speed spin you have selected. Also, did you know that on most LG washers, you can do just a spin without a rinse? Just turn the washer power on, then, without selecting a cycle, just push the spin speed selector to select the spin speed desired. This should set the cycle for about a 12 to 14 minutes pump and spin only. Then push start. You can spin that bulky load at the lowest spin, then try it again at the next faster spin if needed, without adding rinse water.

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.

Kenmore 80 series top load washer. In the permanent press mode the machine will stop when it moves to the rinse mode. I can manually move the time past the midpoint of the cycle it will run for a minute...


So it will spin and drain when put in the spin cycle right? More than likely it is your timer if you have to keep manually setting. I would check on timer prices and go from there.

My Kenmore wash cycle stops between rinse and spin


Hi, Does the washer fill in the rinse cycle and then stop? Does it fill and agitate before it stops? If you advance the timer manually past that point, will it finish the cycle?
Question I need to ask in order to help you.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.
