    No there are no suds and I follow the user manual to place some bleach in the softener dispenser but no clothes or detergent. I then turn on the washer, press "tub clean" and start. It goes through the cycle almost to the end but then stops with the "OE" error and water remains in the tub. I stop the machine and restart a "spin drain" cycle and it empties and shuts off. All other cycles work fine. It's just the "tub clean " cycle.

    you may have a lot of buildup in the tub . yout can try using white distilled vinigar instead of bleach on a heavy cycle with hot water

    Yes I only ever use HE detergent and only 2 tblspoons but I will try your suggestion of just running white vinegar through an empty hot wash cycle. Not sure why the potential "build up" problem, OE error would only happen during tub clean sysle. Thank you for your responses!

SOURCE: For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check

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.

L have a samsung front loader and the water wont stop unless l turn power off at the socket! it shows a oe code




Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is overflow error which occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected. If the issue remains then clean the drain pump located at the front lower panel. Please revert back for further assistance.


Thanks

Stops in cycle, not sure if its when rinsing? I notice it stops and an error code of OE ?


This error code OE means the tub is not fully drained 10 minutes after the drain pump is turned on.This is possibly due to a clogged/kinked drain hose or the drain filter is blocked. Make sure the drain hose is clear then open the filter door located at the bottom left front of the machine. Drain the remaining water from the tub through the emergency drain hose located in the filter door area. Once completely drained, turn the knob counterclockwise then pull out and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller area and turn it with your finger. Replace the drain pump if the filter is clear and the impeller is broken or restricted and cannot be freed.

My lg front load washer stops and give me an error message OE


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..

For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check drain hose and filter, all clean. Try different cycles, TUB CLEAN, SPEED WASH. Same error code. No drain.

LG WM-2032HW front loader washer gives error goes OE and IE


"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.

My lg intellowasher wd1290 error code OE


I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oe code


I had the same problem. First the grinding noise during the rinse cycle and then after four weeks the OE code. LG had a local repair service come out and he determined that the drain pump was dead and ordered a replacement. Still waiting on part after only 3 days.
