According to the manual, OE means the unit did not pump out. It offers the following possbilities: (ver batim)

The Drain Hose kinked or blocked.
Wiring connection is OK?
The drain outlet of sump is blocked.
The Drain Pump/Motor or circuit is troubled.

It goes on to say what to do:

Remove the cause of kink or block.
Check the wiring connection.
Measure the electric resistance of Drain Motor. (20-40 Ohms )
Replace the Drain Motor or repair the Circuit
