    Default LG Washer WM0642HW not draining

    Model Number: WM0642HW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 6-10 years

    Our LG WM0642HW washer gave an error code OE.

    I've removed the pump and cleaned it and removed a clog from the drain line.

    When I tested the washer, it fills but when it goes to the drain cycle it does not drain. If I open the manual drain line water is forced out by the pump.

    I can't seem to find what else may be clogging the drain line. I disconnected the drain line one more time and flushed it with a garden hose, but when I reconnect the line the washer still does not drain.

    Should I replace the pump?

    Hi,

    When I tested the washer, it fills but when it goes to the drain cycle it does not drain.
    Is the drain pump running?
    If yes, something may have happened to the drain pump itself. Some may even make a noise like it is working but it is not.

    It appears to be running. I can hear a noise like it's running, but noting come out of the drain line. The only place water does come out is the small manual line and it does come out with a lot of force if I open it while the pump "is running".

    More and more kinda sounding like a sour drain pump is very possible.
