You don't have to drain all the water out after each use, you just need to clean things up a bit.
There is a problem with the design, in that the drawer area is a breeding ground for mould.
There will be a latch on the drawer you need to press to remove it - take it out and wash it in a hot solution of borax. Alternatively bleach it, and then wash in hot detergent.
Use a spray cleaner designed to kill mould and mildew, and use it with a brush inside the drawer apature to remove all mould build up. It's quite a grotty job - but needs doing.
After that, use a cloth to clean as far back into the pipe as you can.
Do two washes on hot with bleach, then a rinse, and it's good to go.
It is most important you leave the drawer open after a wash, and the door open more than 2" on these machines to prevent it, and a hot wash occasionally for whites. Tell the manufacturer that you won't be buying their brand again.

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

It's actually a DE error code which stands for drain error. Pull the
little basket out that's behind the small door on the lower left front
(where the drain hose is) and look inside. The drain pump intake is
about an inch in on the left. Make sure there's nothing in there like a
paperclip or hair pin. If possible reach in and see if you can turn the
impeller. If it won't move there's something in there if it will turn
then the motor is probably bad.

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..
