LG Washer model WT1101CW not ejecting water?

Hey guys, this machine stopped ejecting the water during spin cycle, I tried setting it to Spin Only, the load sensor will turn the drum a couple of times left and right then slowly spin and the timer is counting down but the water is not ejecting, any ideas please?

Code OE on LG means not draining properly due to kinked drain hose or clogged filter.
The video link below shows how to clean the filter.

What I have found most times with that washer is either pump is jammed or pump is bad. Usually I have found a small item like a safty pin jammed in impeller of pump. I found a nickle in one.

LG plus their documentation shows that I have to get a tech to repair as this "top loader" does not have a drain outlet like the front loaders:

I always take hose off the back and lay washer down on front. You can than access the pump. Not the most DIY friendly job.

When my plumber friend gets home in a few hours we will try, I have drained most of the water out with a mug, get back to you, thanks.

My research shows it can also be some faulty electrical connectors not triggering the ejection process so doesn't need to be clog-related.

Use a wet dry vacuum on the discharge hose. It will get most of the water out.

I ended up calling a tech who did the job for $100, I don't mind but what got me was how damn easy the repair was. All he did was turn the machine to the back, took off the cover, unplug the black hose from the pump put his finger into the pump's opening and tried to see if there was anything he could find which might have been clogging the pump and that was it.

So even though he did not find anything it worked. He did tell me how to maintain the system to avoid any clogging issues so I will do so on a monthly basis from now on. If this issue ever arises again I will know what to do next time, also even if I have to change the pump I can do it on my own so I learned a few things, thanks guys!

First machines did not have a cover that came off. Things have changed since I retired a few years ago.
