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.

SOURCE: LG TROMM noise during spin cycle

Dear Customer,

for ur water not drainin out, please do the the followin checks

  • Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the water pump
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect the motor coupler

  • n for ur rattling during spin cycle please do the followin checks..

    Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs

    Before working on the washer, unplug the appliance or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

    A washing machine may wiggle, rattle or move across the floor. It is often accompanied by excessive noise. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some machines more than others.
    The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid and when it comes to a stop, redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit.

    A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. See our article on how to level your washing machine.
    The outer tub is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.
    Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be called for.
    Another common cause for excessive movement is the floor on which the washer rests. The washer is heavy and even more so when filled with water. Any floor, other than a concrete slab, will tend to pick up and amplify the vibrations from the machine.
    There are a couple things you can try. If you have access to the joists under the floor, you may be able to beef up the support. Another thing to try is placing a large sheet of plywood under the washer. It should be 3/4" or even 1" thick and as large as possible to distribute the weight. Use a sheet big enough for both the washer and dryer to sit on. If possible fasten the plywood to the existing floor.

    • General tips mentioned above
    • Balance the load
    • Level the machine
    • Inspect the water pump for a blockage
    • Inspect the coupling
    • Inspect the transmission
    • Adjust the drive belt tension
    • Check the motor bearings
    • Check the drum brakes
    Please rate this solution.Thank you..

    Why on an LG Front loader does the FE code come on and not on Rinse & Spin?


    Here is the LG site for washing machine error codes, you can scroll down and find the FE code there:
    http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000010-20150140270078-other-error-codes

    The site shows the following:

    The FE error code indicates the washer is overfilling. This is usually the result of a faulty water valve.

    1. Close both water taps.

    2. In order to drain out any trapped water, power the washer back on and press the Spin Speed button until No Spin is selected and press the Start/Pause button.

    3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.

    Check the pressure switch and hose. Pressure switch is what turns the pump on and off. Trouble is usually in the hose so check it first. Look for the hose to be unattached or clogged.

    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

    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..

    LG Intellowasher 7kg, Model WD-8074FHB - noisy spin cycle


    You are right!

    Bearings have to be replaced. Replace with the same type and design. All the bearings connected to the washer center shaft has to be replaced at the same time with new set.

    Replace the water seals also connected to this. Check the shaft where the bearing sits, for any abrasions or metal damage.

    Check the bearing housing also. While carrying out these repairs check the drive belt also. If needed replace it.

    If you are happy with the machine outer body and other aspects repair it and re-use it.

    LG Intellowasher cannot complete spin cycle.


    Unplug power cable, remove top cover and inner panel, locate water level sensor on the right with 3 wires and a thin tube, remove the tube and puff into it until you hear water bubbling. This will clear any blockage caused by suds build up. Replace tube, covers and plug back in. It should complete cycles now.
