This seems to be a fault in the motor wiring harness, check all the connectors to and from the motor, check the male and female connectors. Also check the sensors to the motor which can cause this motor to show up as overload.

Have you checked the moister control sensor. You also need to clean entire vent system.

When pipes are disturbed, often times debris is knocked loose from inside the pipes and ends up blocking the inlet screens on washers, etc. Turn the water supply off to the washer, remove the hose from the back of the machine, and look for a plugged screen right there where the hose connected to the machine.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
No promises (as I haven't seen that display!) but I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a similar problem with my LG WD-3245RHD. I had a repairman come out to look at it and he said I needed a new circuit/control board. I have not been able to locate this replacement part to date. RepairClinic.com has one listed, but it is not in stock.

Child lock has been activated in your washer.

Please press Temp and Option button together in your washer for about 5 seconds after you turn on the washer.

If you do not have these two buttons check whether you have any button with a child's face as symbol , press and hold that for 5 seconds.

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..

The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle.If the bearing is getting out of its way then its faulty weak motor causing this.Check out both the bearing and the motor. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

if your trying to test the pump u can do this by stripping the end off a extension cord and connecting two connectors and then breifly plugging the pump into an outlet the pump spins an impellar when u plug the pump in it should be quiet if it is not replace yr pump there are no pump parts sold they sell it as a whole part you can get this part from marcone appliace parts hope this helps they are probably the cheapest to order it from have your model number in hand when u call them

Yes, sounds like a service tech is a good idea.

Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.

Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.
