Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'oe' for LG's normally does refer to drainage problems. Were you able to see if the pump motor was clear and working? If not try these, especially the bit about the motor ;-0)
Here are my (complete, general) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor.
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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!
Good luck!

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: water wont drain

Hi,
OE-pump blocked. Disconnect the power before attempting any work. Use of an RCD (plug in power breaker) is recommended.
Disconnect pump from sump hose and check for obstruction in either item. Pump removal: power off, remove cover, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.

Good Luck!!

SOURCE: For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check

Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.

SOURCE: OE Code LG washer - cleaned filter, checked pump

It is a long drain error. The washer is not fully drained after 10 minutes of draining. Remove the cabinet cover and check the following:

  1. Connector The connector may disconnected or disassembled. Reassemble or repair if necessary.
  2. Drain pump coil
    Check pump coil resistance between the terminals using an ohmmeter. Resistance should be between 10-20 ohms. If the resistance is too high or too low, replace the drain pump.
  3. Voltage Check the voltage between the connector in step 1 during spin. The voltage should be 120Vac, else replace the main board assembly
Main board replacement:
  1. Disconnect the power connector and sensor switch assembly.
  2. Remove the main board protective cover.
  3. Disconnect the connectors.
  4. Remove the screw on the back of the main board.
  5. Slide the main board to the right then pull it up.
  6. Replace the main board in reverse order above.

WF328 AAG OE error code...how do reset this? or can I reset this?


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.


  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.

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.

My washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle


OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..

Morning, LG WD1295FB error OE, plese advise


An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes. However, the OE error code does not always mean that the washer requires a service call. If periodic maintenance has not been performed on the washer, there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service. oe_led.jpg oe_lcd.jpg LED display models LCD Display Models Step 1: Check the drain pump filter. Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly. Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine.

If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a LEVEL on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
