Hello, our washer drains during some cycles and not during other cycles. There is an OE message. Does this indicate the drain pump motor needs to be replaced?
Answer Jim, Yes, the "OE" error code indicates the tub still has enough water in it to keep the pressure switch from resetting to empty. You will want to dismantle the pump assembly and check the hoses and impeller for damage or clogs> If all's OK, then replace the drain pump 4681EA2001T.
I replaced my drain pump motor on my washing machine (LG WM2277HW) about six weeks ago because the tub was not draining. It worked fine after. Now it is doing the same thing. Could it be a bad motor again or is it something else? Also there is a loud humming noise coming from bottom of the washer near were the drain motor is? Thanks
It is unlikely for the drain pump to fail after 6 weeks, although it can happen. The first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that there is nothing clogged in the drain pump that would cause it to not run and would cause the vibration noise. If there is something clogged then you will want to test the unit by putting it into a diagnostic after the pump has been cleaned. If the pump does not pump the water out then it may have been damaged by the debris.
I have part 4681EA2001D, can I use this or do I need 4681EA2001T?
Both of the pumps are the same and you can use either part number. The APP part number for both pumps is 4681EA2001T.
I would like to install the drain pump but the washer on your your video is for a different than my washer. Please help.
Answer Hello Yasmin,
This pump 4681EA2001T is the correct one for your unit. The video is only to give a general idea of how the job is accomplished and is not exact since there are thousands of model configurations out there.
Was having a problem with this washer draining. Checked the pump and the ohms showed more than what it should have been. Now the machine drains but still comes up OE. All hoses are clear. The new pump shows 15.4 ohms and I am getting 120 VAC to the pump. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Jeff,
You need to remove the hose that runs from the outer tub to the pump and make sure an item, (such as a sock), is not between the tubs and blocking the drain opening. Also check the other hoses for blockages. If there is no blockage and the unit is fully draining, replace the main board EBR32268002 since it is misreading the information to being sent to it.
