After getting some sleep and getting home I wondered the same thing about the filter. Going over what happened again before I open it up after this and some new info came up
She went to check if the wash was done. It was not. Tub was empty and would not spin. Display said OE, now it could have shown another prior to that but she didn't see it if it did, so she cleaned the filter and a small amount of water came out. Added the rags she used to wipe up the mess to the same load and re started the wash.
After a bit she noticed the carpet seemed dark.... Washer was spinning like everything was normal showing no code. Lots of water had been dumped, she shut it off and says she believes it leaked for a little after shutting it down.
Sounds like something broke. Well, without actually watching it do whatever it really did that's what it seems like so far. Going to open it up and have a look around and see what I see
maybe something very obvious will be wrong.
I found the service manual area, very nice! I have yet to get the model number and download the manual though. I'm afraid to run it or do any testing without looking inside it first. I am not a tech but it seems like something had to be very wrong for the machine to be spinning on a empty tub like everything is normal while actually all it was doing was trying to convert my living room into a lake.
More info in a bit...
