There are a couple of common causes for a problem like this. First is a bad door lock assembly that also damages the machine control board (in the control panel). If this is the case the R11 resistor on the machine control board will be burnt.
Maytag has identified seven resistors that relate to specific components that need to be checked or replaced if the resistor is damaged. Listed here are the resistor identification, the circuit involved, and the recommendation:
R9 / pressure switch / check for loose connections or high resistance on switch contacts; replace pressure switch if necessary.
R11 / door lock wax motor / replace door lock mechanism and machine control board.
R51 / hot water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R52 / timer motor / check for loose relay terminal connections and replace machine control board.
R53 / cold water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R143 / (-) 24 Volt DC / contact was made between neutral and the 24 Volt DC circuit.
R162 / electrical buffer circuit / wire harness and machine control board.
Another common issue is a slow water fill fault. If the washer does not fill within a certain time the control will stop on a fault. Usually when this happens the START button can be pushed to continue the cycle.
Washing machines that won't fill or fill slowly often have a restriction in the incoming water supply -- usually in the screens of the inlet hose washers or the water inlet valve itself. Remove the hoses to inspect this condition. If the water inlet valve screens are plugged, replace the water inlet valve.

On the 9700s it's even easier - three screws on the front bottom panel below the door, then use your hand to unscrew the large round handle in the front center. When you can't unscrew any more, pull gently and the filter / catcher will come out.
It's amazing how much stuff mine held - 4 breastfeeding shields, a pencil, a pen, a fake mouse, and lots of grey gunk.
Screw it back in, put the panel back on, and you're in business.

SOURCE: MAYTAG NEPTUNE ERROR CODE OE
The "oe" code indicates a water pressure problem. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the water inlet valve solenoids. They can can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news
