LG front loader won't drain

I have an LG front loader that won't drain. I can hear it buzzing like the drain motor is trying to drain, then I get an "OE" error ("no drain" issue), and it stops without spinning.

So, I removed wet clothes, drained the washer manually and checked the drain filter/trap (it was clear). I then turned on the drain/spin cycle with an empty load and it worked (started spinning).

I put the very wet (soaking) clothes back in, started the drain/spin cycle and I hear the drain motor trying to drain and then get the OE error again and no spinning.

I tried a master reset as described in LG WASHER won't drain or spin. No joy.

Any suggestions on what to try next. Thank you!

So, I called in the professionals - he said it was a problem with the pump impeller. Cost to fix is $311.

Do I need a trap on my drain

The water sits in the pump and sleeps through into the impellers trapping stagnant water so I would say you need a new pump
