Since we did not get a call back from the repair rep, my husband decided to check one more thing. It appears that we would always get the OE message when the cycle was in the process of draining. He decided to check the drain pump and there it was two nails that apparently were left in my husbands pocket lodged in the drain pump preventing it from pumping the water out. He removed it and we prayed that we had not burnt the pump out. Fortunately we had not and the machine ran fine. We were able to save our machine and some money too!

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

WASHER DISPLAYED "OE" NOW IT WILL NOT DO THE SPIN DRY


Hi there, my mum actually had that problem with her LG washing machine, we did clean out all the drains and hoses just like you did, and also checked the pipes for any damages(cracks/ bends). Turns out the cause was that the machine just wasn't sitting level, so it wasn't draining out properly. Water just collected inside the front of the machine causing that error. Check if the machine is level, and while you're at it check your filter for clogs.

Hi

OE in your dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. If the issue returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

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..

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.
