AE indicates a leak into the base of the appliance or the anti flood / safety device has been activated.
Unplug the appliance and take the rear panel off.
Check for water in the base.
Remove the water and the switch should reset.
If no water, check the switch in the base for any obvious problems.
The switch, wiring and control board are the three items involved in this fault.
Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help
You need to watch the appliance working with the rear cover off.
The only way to find a leak is to see it happening.
Good luck with the appliance.
Thank you for the payment, it is appreciated.
