OE stands for drain error. The unit does not drain completely within the 10 minute time.
Please check the water pump filter for blockade.

You can bring down the drain hose for the water to come out. Most likely pump trap is clogged up. Access it behind small door at front. Drain water out through small hose that is there otherwise water will be all over the floor when you unscrew the trap.
-------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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.
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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi

Error code LE indicates that either the motor is not turning or has locked up for some reason. It can also be due to Hall sensor which monitors direction and speed of the motor. If the sensor is faulty then also this error appears. Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor. To make sure it's not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if there is any resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn't move freely then the motor is locked and you'll need to get it replaced. If the motor seems to be fine then you would need to replace the Hall Sensor. To replace the hall sensor, take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Hope this helps...

You may have a broken drain pump and will need to be replaced. Check the filter screen on the bottom left corner to be sure it's clean.
Good luck

if you get it soon before the bearings rust completely and the motor stator shorts out from water leaking into it

Home Depot Sales Associate-

The end of the hose connected to the washer is internal and held in place with a retaining clip. A Technician would have to remove the rear panel and an access cover to reach the unit. Do not attempt to do this yourself, it will void your warranty. LG hoses are designed for a maximum height of 96" and are not designed for extension. if the unit is too far away from a drain source, you will need to locate the unit closer, or extend the drain to the units location.
