Customer Question

I intermittantly get error code OE. Sometimes it takes several goes to get a load done, other times it's fine. Surely that isn't a blocked pump, or it would happen all the time? Jill

OE means that the unit isn't draining properly and it could be a blocked pump or a faulty pump giving a bad signal to the control board. It sounds like you've already cleared the drain catch filter behind the lower access panel so if you still get the same issue then make sure the drain hose isn't kinked and if everything checks good, replace the drain pump motor.
