LG washer wm2032hw toruble code OE
« on: October 13, 2011, 06:47:49 PM »
Ive downloaded the service manual and is says I need a service call.  The code is for drain error.  The pump works fine and is not clogged, the lines are all clear and not kinked or blocked.  The problem is?  Im thinking its the control board, any one have any ideas.

OE error code means that there is still water in the tub or it is taking too long to drain.  Do you still have water in the washer when it goes into an OE error code?

Most likely your problem is with the water level pressure switch. 


The part number is AP4445151

I really doubt it's anything with the control board.

I doubt it.  Try unplugging the unit for 5 minutes to reset the control board.  See if that will cure anything.

Turn the drum 4-5 times by hand to resettle the load, move spin speed to highest, Quick Wash, Speed Wash.
Might work might not.

What didn't work? What have you tried so far?

Unplugged for 30mins, tried the rotating the drum thing and even took clothes out.  The pump is pumping fine,when it activates.  OE code is always the code displayed when trouble arrives

So I guess the answer to your question of what's next would be...

Did you do the water level frequency check? When you press the "SPIN SPEED" button and "SOIL LEVEL" button the water level frequency should be above 246. If it be below that number find the small tube going to the control and blow it out. Get rid of the sediment in the air bell and reconnect tightly. Pump out water and retry.
