I add water and it pumps it out

Thanks for your question.
The unit has detected a leak in the flood basin under the unit. You likely have water in that flood basin under the unit. This will make the pump run non stop as the flood sensor has been activated. You need to remove the lower panel and check it and dry out the flood basin and source the leak to get that to work again.
