Default Bad Drain Pump or Clog? OE Code
Model Number: WM1812CW   Brand: -other-   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com



I have an LG WM1812CW washer and we’regetting the OE/0Ecode. We unhooked the water tube on the front/left/bottompanel (with thefilter next to it) and let that run for a moment. We thenunscrewed the filter and cleaned it. We also blew in drain hose from theoutput.



Seems to be either a clog inside the drainhose or a bad pump.


Is there anyway to figure out if the pump is bad or thedrain hose is clogged? We've checked the filter screen, etc...We can hear themotor on the pump working so is there a way I can figure out which is actuallywrong? The grey drain hose isn't kinked or frozen. I'm not sure I want to gothrough completely taking that apart to check to see if there is a clog withoutpossibly having the part on hand to take care of it.



Candebris really get in the drain hose?

Also,the service manual for this specific machine states the OE error stands for

Not fully drained within 10 minutes.



I alsowatched a video showing how to replace the hoses and it shows removing a clampand the boot seal. Is that a must?

Here is a service manual that may be useful to you.
You will have to joint the site to be able to download the manual.

You will have to open it up to find the problem.

If all the drain plumbing is clear then you will have to replace the pump.
Sometimes it is hard to tell if a pump is bad.

These pumps do not drain very fast and that can let stuff grow in the drain hose.
My daughters unit had an orange algae growing in it. It had reduced the inside diameter of the hose to less than half. Took me half an hour with it hooked up to a tap and shaking the hose to clear it out. Smelled sort of like the fabric softener she was using which was blue and that is why I think it was an algae.
