Why Won't My LG Washer Drain? Understanding the OE Error Code

The OE error code indicates that your LG washer is unable to expel the water used during the wash cycle. This can happen for a few reasons, but the most common culprits are blockages in the drain hose or filter.

What Does the OE Error Mean?

The OE error code is like a warning light on your LG washer. It means there’s a problem getting rid of the water after the wash cycle.

  • Something’s blocking the drain hose, like a sock or built-up lint, stopping the water from flowing out.
  • The filter that catches debris in the washer might be full, causing a blockage and preventing water from draining properly.
  • The pump responsible for draining the water might not be working correctly, so it can’t remove the water from the washer.

Tackling the Problem:

Before you call in the repair pros, there are a few DIY solutions you can try:

  1. Check the Drain Hose: Unplug your washer and pull it out from the wall. Inspect the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Straighten out any kinks and remove any visible debris.

  2. Clean the Drain Pump Filter: Most LG washers have a drain pump filter located at the bottom front panel, usually behind a small access cover. Consult your user manual for the exact location. Empty any remaining water into a pan (be prepared, there might be some!), then remove the filter and clean it thoroughly under running water.

  3. Run a Spin Cycle Test: Once you’ve checked the hose and filter, put everything back together and plug the washer back in. Try running a short spin cycle only. If the washer drains successfully, the problem is likely fixed!

If the OE Error Persists or When to call a Pro:

If the simple fixes don’t solve the issue, there might be a deeper problem with the drain pump itself. In this case, consulting a qualified appliance repair technician is recommended.
