PE error code on LG WF-T653A
PE is a pressure switch problem. Could be a bad switch or it could be that the hose is plugged. The switch looks like a diapharm switch and is located on the main board. It has a black hose that connects under the bottom of the tub. See if that end is clogged. Otherwise you may need a new switch.

The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer.
A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer.
By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser.
Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!!
Look first that they are not any disconnected wires.
Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit).
In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced.
Good luck !!

My washing machine is displaying
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
LG washers 'OE' indicate a drainage problem so I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

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..

The cl lock is on
LG washing machines indicating error code CL may have the child lock activated.
Try holding down the temperature and eco/rapid options together to turn off child lock.
Some LG series use "TEMP and OPTION" at the same time.

Washing process stops, display shows "OE", model WD 1438 RD
It is a drain error code signifying that the pump is not able to completely drain the machine after 10 minutes. It indicates an issue with the drain system. Check to make sure that the drain hose is not clogged and the pump filter is clear from any obstruction. Consider replacing the pump assembly if no issue is found with the drain hose and the pump filter.

LE error code on LG
The LE error code could mean a number of different issues. The advice LG themselves give you is to unplug the unit for 2 hours and drain the tub. There will be an access panel at the bottom and theres a hose you can drain the tub into a bucket. Oversudsing can cause this error. Also can a software issue in the control board.
Most people get this error with the units brand new within the first three or four loads. Other issues could be a bad RPS sensor, Stator, or Control board. We have one of these units in the shop right now that we replaced everything that LG said to replace with no success. We have been waiting on a new control board for 4 months now......
Hope this helps _MJ_

1.) unscrew your cold water conection from the rear of your wash, there will be a little mesh wire thimble in the threaded pipe going into your washer, 2.) remove it and clean it its is most likely clogged, 3.) replace it and put it back together, 4.) enjoy the rinse cycle!!
