OE is normally down to blocked drain pipes, mcalpine (connection under the sink) or a blocked front filter. empty the machine and unscrew the filter behind the flap at the bottom right hand side, check for any obstructions, icoins, hair grips etc are normally blocking here
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
On my machine the pump filter was clogged preventing the water from draining out of the machine properly. This would leave the clothes soaked in water as the machine tried to spin, the extra weight caused the drum to rub against the door seal while spinning, causing the burnt rubber smoke! I removed the 3 screws on the lower fron panel of the machine and opened the drain ( make sure you have a pan or bucket to catch the water! ) cleaned the fliter and put everything back. Works like new again. Good luck.
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.
And from your original post, I see that you have checked the drain pipe and the pump filter..
Those are the only 2 things I would of asked you to check aswell.
As for the price, I cannot answer that as most manufacturers wont publish their prices unfortunatly.
OE is a drain error - 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
Had the same problem. After checking that all the hoses etc were clear and no blockages, then suspected that the pump (cost $90 Australian dollar) was faulty. The Westinghouse service technician acknowledged that that was probably the problem, which I then confirmed by pulling out the pump, and then carefully connecting 240V across the pump terminals. Certainly was a faulty pump. So I spent the money on a new pump and installed it and now the washing machine (6 to 7 years old) works fantastically.
"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.
