hi i have same front loader i have 3 lines showing where the time of cycle should view.


Just to add to this I took mine apart and just cleaned the pump and it has been working for a year-and-a-half since. The pump basically has no moving Parts it's a magnetic impeller mounted in a housing. Took it apart cleaned it I threw a little bit of a light oil where the shaft of the impeller sits in the pump housing. Don't waste your money on buying a new pump if your pump is trying to pump and it can't it's probably just a dirty impeller. Very easy fix and it was free!


My machine shows t lc

wat does that mean it’s not in booklet


LG smart drum being DUMB.

IT'S not making connection to pump on draining cycle?

What else could be happening,

I replaced with new pumps

2 x ,everything works if I lay hose on floor on draining cycle. Can my main board be damage? Or can I replace a contact or something?


I had the same problem with oe code, took machine apart nothing in pump or hose, no filter on my top load model, so I tested the water fill valve by unplugging the machine while it was filling and it did not stop flowing water. Ordered the water fill valve assenbly for 32.00 replaced it in 10 minutes and my machine runs like a new one with no code!

The error code "OE" is a Drain error.

Cause 1

Drain Pump

Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Cause 2

Clogged Pump or Hose

Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

When you guys are replacing your pumps do they come with a new housing and impeller or just the electric motor? Mine was giving me all kinds of problems till I finally dug into it today and found that the impeller was the problem. Pried the impeller out of the housing cleaned it all out regreased it and the machine works like a charm now.

Hi @rafitas ,

What is the model number of the washer?

Is the machine not draining at all, draining too slow in the allocated time or just not draining completely?

You state "....,everything works if I lay hose on floor on draining cycle."

Have you checked the drain itself to make sure that it is not clogged etc, therefore not allowing the water to flow away freely?
