OE indicates a drain error. Your model number doesn't fit the usual pattern for LG dishwashers; LDT5665WW and LDS4821WW are a couple of recent model numbers.

To start diagnosing and fixing the OE error, first check the discharge hose. Make sure that it isn't clogged, kinked or improperly positioned. Make sure that the pipe or food disposer that the drain hose connects to isn't clogged. (Check into the rest of the drain pipe if needed.)

Next check that the float switch inside the dishwasher isn't blocked. This indicates the water level and if a foreign object is holding it open, the dishwasher will continue to try to drain the water.

Finally check for any blockage in the drain pump. Also check the pump for obvious damage. If the pump is damaged, replace it.

After you've checked and fixed (as needed) the above issues, try the dishwasher again. If the OE code recurs, then you need to replace the drain motor pump assembly.

If your dishwasher is under warranty, contact LG. Otherwise, please check and post your machine's model number. I can check to see if the parts are available.

I hope this helps.

Hi there,
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!!!

SOURCE: Im receiving an OE error code on my LG Dishwasher

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Dishwasher stops working., all indicator lights go on and display shows OE


Hi


OE in your LG dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi rebeccasolom,

OE means "Outlet Error"

The drain pump is either clogged or the outlet hose is kinked.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks.
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it.

Kind Regards :-)

We had a short in the wiring where the dishwasher plugs into the wall. After fixing the wiring, the dishwasher now has a message "OE" when I turn it on.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error OE in your LG dishwasher is a drain error, which is displayed when the unit won’t drain out in spite of 5 minutes drain operation. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose for any blockages, also check the wiring connection to the pump. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to replace the drain pump/motor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Instead of showinf a time my LG dishwasher (LD-2120w) has code: F on then during a cycle it stops and flashes 0E. I have found OE means to clean the filter which i think i have done, but the priblem is...


With an OE error, the next step is to follow the drain hose from where it connects to the dishwasher through the point where it connects to the drain.

Look for crushed hose, kinked hose. Then look for a plugged drain connection.

Please report back what you find. There are other things that ~could~ cause the problem. OK?
