LG Tromm having a OE code problem.
« on: November 06, 2012, 04:05:38 PM »

Have a LG Tromm washer, sometimes it works without any issues, and sometimes it register's a code OE, which means it's having a problem draining or there is a clog in one of the drain hoses.  I have cleaned out all of the drain hoses and taken out the drain pump.  Have put all back together, and still have the same problem.  Any idea's, is it a bad drain pump or something else.....  Thank you

Model number? When it's draining does it seem to pump fast or slow?

Usually if everything is clear, it's the pump motor. I would replace it.

I agree with the above techs. I looked up your model and it uses drain pump part # 4681EA2001T

Isn't TROMM an Ikea model?   I noticed they sell "brand name" appliances like LG, Whirlpool, etc. but they also have their pseudo Swedish model name.   Are they different than a similar mainline USA model???    How is parts support for the Ikea version???

Whirlpool makes appliances for Ikea. Tromm is the trade name of LG front load washers and dryers.
