SOURCE: SKT5102/gb1 - not pumping out
I had a problem that seems to be related, but it came out that the pump was blocked. I had service to open and remove a small plastic clip that had came into the machine accidently. I do not recognize that water was pumped back as you explain but if the water is not emptied may be this is the result...

There is a pump that pumps this water out of this unit have you tested the pump itself outside of the unit to see if its is pumping water at all? the motor pump kit you bought for this unit was it certified by the manufacture to be a actual replacement for this unt? Dishwashers are so inexpensive they can be baught for less then what the old one is repaired for. I seen a slew of information and you bee nthrought a lotf of experts for information i am jst wondering if there getting any benefit from trying to help you out with your issue?
1. check pumps outside of unit!
2. check hoses for clogs outside of unit!
Make sure these pumps are geting signal to pump water from unit. You need this part direct from them
Thanks and rate me please!

SOURCE: My GE Nautilus dishwasher keeps PUMPING water "out" of the machine during the entire wash cycle. I have removed all covers in the bottom of the unit to see if anything is stock. Used vinegar and CLR
If this convert-able dishwasher is permanently installed, you will have to take off the lower access panel to get to the pump area. If it is still in a portable configuration, it may be easier to lay the dishwasher on it's back or side to do this. Now, examine the pump / motor assembly. There is not a separate water pump on this model. There is a diverter pump out solenoid which get's pulled down to direct the water out the drain hose for pump out, which is suppose to spring back out of the way to allow water to go up to the spray arms for washing. I suspect that the solenoid got to hot and the plunger will no longer slide in the solenoid. If this is the case, you can replace it with a WD21X802. If the arm and plunger move freely, check the spring, or for obstructions in the pump housing, or possibly the diverter arm in the pump housing has come loose from the shaft. The solenoid is the most likely.

If you "Lower" the hose to the bucket and it "drains" you are just using gravity to remove the water. The pump may be helping a little but if you raise the hose up and the water stops coming out, it's a good indication that the pump is bad. Unless the place you are attaching the hose to is plugged up, you need a new pump or a new impellor. Since the motor is good, try to get a replacement impellor, that the thing that moves the water. One other thing, you did say how well it washes the dishes? If the impellor is bad, it probably doesn't.

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 by removing the bottom front access panel for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
