During a cycle the water will not drain and the machine simply stops. I've cleaned all the filters and adjusted the drainage pipe, but it is still blocked. Is there anything I can do without calling out an engineer?
This problem is often due to a blockage in the impeller blades which are located under the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove the filter and you should be able to get to the impeller by undoing a couple of torx screws. If the impeller has been blocked (this could be by something as small as a grain of uncooked rice), remove the obstruction so the impeller turns freely.

Can be down to
kink in drainage hose
water drain pump
or an often overlooked drainage problem ...believ it or not can be a malfunctioning heater in the machine...
hope this points you in the right direction..
Only 1 yr old so I assume its a simple fault like partial blockage at pump. Remove filter bottom right of machine check and clean if needed . remember to use an old towel fist as this will contain around half pint of water assuming its drained 1stly , Always unplug machine from Electrics before any repairs, Good luck.
I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is
trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually
this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See
my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:
Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.
If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.
If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.
You'll need to drain the water out manually.
Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.
Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.
Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.
Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.
If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

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.
Hi, The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is: 1. Blocked drain hose 2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction) 3. Failing drain motor. else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD Good Luck!!!
