SOURCE: error code oe
That's not OE, that's DE = Drain Error. Open the access door at the lower left on front of the machine. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine, then open the large knob which is attached to the filter. If there is nothing in the filter, you may have an object which made it past the filter and is blocking the pump impeller, or the impeller may have come off the pump motor shaft, which would require pump motor replacement.

if the water continues to fill even with power off, and you have to manually shut in off at the wall valve, the 3-way inlet valve is stuck open. you have to replace it. $90

Remove the bottom panel which would give you access to the pump area if you look up along the side that the door lock is on you will see a cord with a loop on it pull this cord and the door would open. The panel must be removed in order to locate this pull cord. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
p.s if after you open the door and you were to leave the unit unplugged for 7 minutes if the error did not go away or if the door once again locked up you would have no choice but to replace the door lock assembly on the unit Thanks again Rick

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The code OE is a draining error. The washer has sensed that the water has not completely drained all of the water within 10 minutes and will display this error code. The grinding noise you are describing is most likely a failed drain pump or clogged with foreign debris.
If you are unable to resolve the issue by cleaning, I would recommend replacing the drain pump.
