After 12 years in charge, Germany's head coach will be under intense pressure to resign in the coming days, despite having only signed a contract extension until 2022 last month.
"It's too soon for me to answer, it will take a few hours to see things clearly, the disappointment is very deep in me," 58-year Loew when asked if he will resign.
It is the first time Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup since 1938 as the holders became the latest defending champions to crash out early.
"This is a huge disappointment for us - there was deathly silence in the dressing room," said Loew.
"Congratulations to our opponents, the Swedes and the Mexicans. We were rightly eliminated from the tournament.
