LG Washer WT1101CW OE Code, but all is working?
« on: November 26, 2019, 02:36:17 PM »

Greetings all, I've been fighting a broken washer for over a week and I'm hoping someone on this page can shed some light.

I have the above LG Washer and I'm getting an OE Error code at the end of a cycle. OE code = Water not draining properly, but the water is draining just fine.

When I first got the code I pulled the pump out and inspected/cleaned it, no problmems found. Drain Hose is clear/not kinked.

I ran a rinse/Spin cycle when the washer empty, filled up about half way, rinsed, and then drained (visual water in the tub was gone in about a minute, drained pretty quick). Issue is the pump just continued to run after the washer was empty.. Ran for about 15 minutes, and then chimed and flashed the OE code.

I called an appliance repair person, told him what I'd done/what was happening, he said with good certainty to replace the board. $190 later my board gets in, I put it in, run a rinse/spin cycle and the exact same thing happens (fills/rinses/drains, but never realized the tub is empty. Pump runs for 15 minutes and then errors out "OE".

Can anyone give me another idea to try? Is there a sensor or something somewhere on the machine that senses when there is water in the tub? the shots/absorbers on the tub are fine, can't think of what else to check given the brand new board.

Thanks in Advance!

Possibly there is some gunk in pressure switch hose causing witch to not recognize that the unit is empty soon enough
