My washing machine LG WD1238C keeps showing error message OE hose is not blocked or filter blocked does not finish any cycle or work correctly

This sounds like a blockage in the small hose connected to the waste pump. Take the lid off and find the waste pump down near the bottom of the machine below the drum, then remove any one of the hoses connected to the waste pump and check inside the pump to make sure the fan can spin using your fingures, maybe a small kids sock or similar jammed in there, if nothing in the pump check both pipes on the waste pump

Le Error on front load machine

Hello,This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged. Usually this small door is on the left side front below of your washer. Expect some water to come out when you open the door, etc. Clean out your filter and refit.....things should be fine.

Won't spin out at end of wash cycle code is OE

Please clean the filter.
Filter is behind the little door located on the front left corner of the unit.

Please read the owners manual for proper cleaning.

If filter is clean the drain pump may have failed.

LG front load washer OE error. cleaned filter need

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..

To check and clean the filter, you need to remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction or blockage here and in the pump as well.
Hope this helps to solve your question.
Please leave feedback.

Lg tromm front load leeks water from somewhere around bottom of mach.

You most likely need to clean your pump filter and the drain hose next to it. Both are located on the lower left section of the washer's front side. There is a door (cover cap) you need to simply pull open to gain access to the two items I mentioned. The cleaning process is available in your owner's manual - in the maintenance section.
