Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer

Open Question

I had the OE error and replaced the drain pump on my LG TROMM WM1814CW front load washer. It is on a pedestal drawer so we had to remove the front of the washer. My son helped and didnt pay attention to how the drain pump motor was attached to the plastic housing that the hoses connect to. There is a black and a brown wire and we are unsure which post thest connect to. My quesition is...when mountd in the washer The two electrical posts on the pump motor, are they horrizontal to the bottom of the washer or are they vertical one on top of each other as if the motor is mounted on its side? also If Im looking directl at the back of the pump motor how do I verify what wire connects to what electrical post. Right now we get a hummm early in the cylce and turn it off as not to burn up the motor. IF someone has a picture of the pump mounted in the washer that would be helpful.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

No, there is no access to the drain pump other than by removing the front panel to get to it.  It is a job that can be done but you will need to spend some time to disassemble the machine to get to it.

SOURCE: LG Tromm wm1814cw LE flashing on digital display,

Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

Problem with LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer. It has stopped with water inside and it says OE. I have checked the back pipe, but with water inside, can i open filter


The OE error is telling you the water hasn't drained out in ten minutes. To fix I would first start with cleaning the filter on the pump. If that doesn't fix i would recommend replacing the pump. I would also have towels and a mop in hand because when you unscrew the filter top the water that is inside the tub will come out. You should try leaning washer back before removing filter to prevent the mess.If you have to replace the pump they run about 50 or 60 bucks. I hope this helps.

Error message oe. and will not spin.


Actually, that is not oe, it is DE, which stands for Drain Error. Check the filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the washer. You should be able to drain the water out using the small hose there first before opening the filter. If there is nothing in the filter, you will have to replace the drain pump motor.
