The method we use on our LG WF 8071TTP top-loader:
Load stuff to be soaked.
Set load size and water inlets.
Start wash cycle.
Wait until water is full, and begins washing.
Press Start/Pause button.
Press Auto Stop button to switch machine off.
Press Auto Stop button to switch machine on.
Press Start/Pause button.
The fuzzy logic (if machine has this) will register that machine is full, and washing will continue.
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.
*Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over
time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the
machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel
down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter
thoroughly and restart the machine.
*Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain
properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter
higher than the bottom of the washing machine.
*Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The
front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not
properly leveled, the water can flow back into 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. Confirm that the washer is leveled from
side to side and front to back.
Hope this helps.. Good luck! ;)

Either a main control board or you have a drain line problem causing the water to siphon out. If you house drain is lower than the washer water fill line or if your drain hose is sealed into the house drain line then you can have the water siphoned out of your washer. Check to make sure the drain line is not to far into your house drain pipe and that there is air around the drain hose where it enters the drain pipe, (not sealed tightley). If it is not the drain siphoning then you need a technician to diagnose the main control board and to replace it. Good Luck Appliance Specialists
