LG front load washer OE error / doesn't drain after rinse

I get OE error code at beginning of spin cycle. Sometimes it errors out and stops sometimes it runs through the cycle but mostly it never drains the water. The pump makes a noise (like normally) for 10-20 seconds but no water drains.

It does drain the water after the first wash cycle however not at the spin.
I have checked hose for kinks and the pump filter and also replaced the pump earlier.
What I don't understand is why it would drain properly after first wash cycle but not after the rinse cycle.

Model number F8056QD does not pull up as good, please recheck your model number.

Like I mentioned in this thread:
The ONLY way to eliminate the PCB as the problem child is to do the voltage test I mentioned to do to make sure you are getting a constant 120 volts to the drain pump when the drain pump should be running.:)

Do you have a multimeter to check for a constant 120 volts to the drain pump when the drain pump should be running in the final drain cycle before the final spin cycle?

It is actually valid.

BTW mine seems to randomly pump water out successfully (very rarely) but most of the time it fails (the pump wurrs but it doesn't get anything out...and then the OE error after a lot of waiting)
Ok, that is a European washer, look on page 4 of that manual and you will see 220-240 volts 50 hz.

We don't know anything about European appliances here in the USA.

Try UK Whitegoods.

If your in the USA how are you using this washer on 220-240 volts 50 hz?

60 hz is USA. 50 hz is European.
