OE error code means the washer is unable to drain the water out. Basically its a draining error code.

What you need to do depends on the model. Most LG washers have a filter at the bottom on the front. You need to slowly drain the water out from there into a shallow tray.

Then once the water is out you can then fully remove the filter and then give it a good clean out and make sure the pump impeller is all clear as well.

So thats what OE error code means its a draining error code.

Hope this helps you.
