Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sounds to me that you have 2 problems.

1) It isn't being drained by the pump 'cos you are having to use gravity (!) so the pump has to be suspect,
2) the wash water is going straight out of the drain hose (with gravity but that's beside the point) so the drain valve has to be suspect. Its job is to be closed whilst water is being used in the machine and only open for drainage.

You can check the pump by the method I detail in the last paragraph of my filter and pump guidance notes below. On principle I would clean/clear out the filter AND check the hose from the bottom of the drum where the drain valve is, JUST IN CASE something is jamming the drain valve partially open ----------->

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!

At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

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

Hello, My L G washing machine has an error code OE... what does that mean?


The OE error or fault code indicates that the washing machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Sometimes objects that are put into the washing machine, for example combs, money, hair pins, etc. end up in the filter. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear and functioning properly, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

I have an lg wd12650tp and it has stopped full of water with the code OE showing. I've tried emptying the filter at the front but it still wont drain? Any suggestions? btw apparently the code means...


Hi.

Error 0E is drain error.

Access the drain pump, located behind the service door at the base of the machine, in the front side, right below the washer door.

Disconnect power before starting the procedure.

Open the door and undo the pump attachment. Have a container ready to collect a good amount of water.

If that does not fix the problem, then there may be a fault. Further blockage, faulty pressure switch and faulty drain pump are the faults that can trigger error code 0E.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models using the link below:

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?


OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

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.

Check the drain hose for blockage. and see if the water filters is clogged. Specific instructions will vary based on your specific LG model. Most LG frontloaders have an access panel on the front for the water filter.

What does the flashing OE mean? My washer is flashing OE and the water will not drain after the cycle.


OE means the drain hose is clogged. UE means unbalanced or overloaded. This is decribed in the owner's manual page 31-32. Pull the hose from the back of machine and rinse it out. Then, check the lint filter on the bottom, front left side. Put drain hose back and close lint filter. Unplug the machine, press and hold the start button for 10 seconds to reset machine computer (not the on button...leave machine turned off and unplugged while resetting computer) plug back in, put on no spin and start the machine. It should drain.

Washer won't drain fully


#1. Turn off power.
#2. Remove door panel and check for broken wires.
#3. Check for the continuity splice and put insulation in between. This is most likely the problem.
