Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

LG Washing Machine UE error but not out of balance fix.

I had a LG front load washing Machine developed a UE Fault. Shocks Pump and drainage good and bearings good. Machine not out of balance.

Everything I looked at for a balance sensor did not provide the answer. Some even suggested the Hall sensor. This senses the drum rotation via a magnetic field similar to car ignition.

The Balance is sensor is part of the water level switch. The water level sensor and bottle at hose was cleared yet the fault continued.
Changed the water pressure switch all fixed and working perfect.
There must be some kind of sensor in the water pressure switch, sloshing and causing the sensor to trip or perhaps the sensor went to sensitive?

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, 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.

I believe that UE is the fault of an unbalanced load which caused the drum to hit the switch or faulty load balance switch.

If the switch is stuck you can try to shake the inner drum kind of violently up and down (you won't be able to hurt it).

If the machine exibits the same error code with the drum empty then it is possible that the switch is damaged and will have to be replaced.
