CE stands for " Over Current Error".

The cause according to the book is

"MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is out of order.
• Winding in the STATOR ASSEMBLY is short-circuited.

The door will not open until after you drain all the water out. There is a little access panel on the bottom of the front panel you can open and unscrew the cap to drain the water out if you like. As far as the CE error goes, it's generally the board itself that is bad. You can pull the unit forward and remove the back access panel to look at the motor on the back of the outter tub. If water is leaking on it or you see anything burnt then you may have a bad stator, but in generally it means you are going to need a new main control board.
