  1. Thank you! My wife was having a heart-attack, so I watched your video and cleaned the filter in the bottom left of the washer. My wife is now miraculously healthy and happy again.

  2. Thank you!!! None of the other videos showed this exact model! I really appreciate you making this video! It was so easy to fix!

  3. I have a top loader lg my pump is good I believe its stopped up from hair and don’t know where to clean it my drain hose is clear I double checked it any advice

  4. Thanks. My filter was plugged with a stupid washable face mask that someone washed, and it somehow got out of the tub and into the filter. LOL. Sign of the Covid times.

  5. Thank you very much for reminding me why I will never buy a front loading washing machine, ever. These things look so pretty, but they are a maintenance nightmare. Good luck with yours.

  6. I have error code OE as well, I ran through the diagnostics and it runs the first 9 steps exactly as in the video but then at step 10 it just powers off the washer

  7. LG washer is crap, I’ve never been more unhappy with a washing machine. I’ll be ordering a new Speed Queen or Maytag Commercial and throwing mine away.

  8. Our machine can’t be open, I turned it off when it says OE . How to unlock it?hope you can save my day.Thanks
