Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher works for a short time the gives a beep and error code E9 and stops working. what does this code indicate?
E9 is a repetative E1 error - flood protection activated. Check tray under machine for leaks. If dry, find youself a nice long cable tie and lift the rubber flap at the back of the sump moulding underr the filters. Proceed as if rodding out the drains - you'll be surprised how much muck and goo comes out. Usually solves it.
If problem still persists, let me know.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

click the link directly
also click this link directly to get the exact picture
also try this
open the door, switch it off, switch it on and immediately press the program button 4 times within 3 seconds. (Don't wait for any lights when you switch it on, just quickly press the button 4 times).
The two end lights should light up. Press the program button and one of the lights should go off.
Switch it off for about 20 seconds, switch it on, switch it off for about 20 seconds, switch it on and it should be reset.
If resetting doesn't cure it, check that the base isn't flooded and the anti flood device activated.
If you're getting any other error code don't do the reset, just post the lights that are flashing, 1 being left and 5 being right. ------------- Check for water in the base of the machine, not the tub.
Drain the water from the base, if there is any, and the machine will reset itself.
If there's no water follow the reset procedure as previously described.
You must get the two end lights lit first before you can carry out the rest of the reset procedure.
If you can't get the two end lights lit then it's possibly a faulty pcb. ----------- if by chance its faulty pcb then Faulty PCB.ne pcb costs £120 + VAT + call out charge so not worth doing

As you know E9 is linked to the water inlet problem.
There are two scenarios here - 1) Are you using the Aqua-Stop safety system? If this is trigerring then it can shut the inlet water. The reason it can trigger is if the flood device located at the base of the dishwasher under the tub is seeing water. Now it is possible the 2 weeks wait for the technician caused the water to dry out and the dishwasher worked on his arrival. But the leak could have started again when it worked once again. So you could have a leaky hose or the door gasket.
2) going by the description of the error codes in this smeg document, I can foresee the error E9 is linked to the water level system which is not able to detect the level required for the dishwasher to start wash cycle. Possible cause is gunk around the sensor that detects the water level in the tub.
Refer a possible solution reported at this forum site.
What I am not clear is why is the dishwasher not doing anything now when you press the start button. Maybe try one thing at a time.
Please post a comment to confirm which way it progressed.
