LG Washer Machine Error Code: OE
If your LG washer is displaying the OE error code, it means that there is a problem with the draining of the washer. This can be caused by a number of different reasons, such as a blocked drain hose, a clogged pump filter, a problem with the drain pump itself, or even a faulty pressure switch.
If your LG washer is displaying an OE error code, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem. First, check to make sure that the door is properly closed and latched.
