There are a few different reasons why your GE washing machine might display an error code. The most common reason is that the washer is not draining properly. This can be caused by a clogged drain hose or a problem with the drain pump. Other possible causes include a faulty water inlet valve or a problem with the washing machine's control board.

If your washing machine is displaying an error code, it is best to consult the owner's manual for troubleshooting tips. You can also try unplugging the washing machine for a few minutes and then plugging it back in. This may reset the machine and clear the error code.
