Error E9 means a problem with your water pressure sensor. Check the sensor by pulling the hose attached to the bottom part of the tub and blow on it and test the terminals of the sensor if it will close or open.

Hope helps.

Here's a solution I've gotten from one of the experts..

"Clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!"

Hope this helps.. Good luck! :)

SOURCE: 1100 Defy laundromaid. hi, my

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Either the washer is not balanced (see below) or if it is correctly balanced the technician has not fixed the problem!
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is STILL malfunctioning. Recall the technician and do not expect to pay the full cost.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: my washer has an LE

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'LE' stands for Lock Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor when there is vibration/movement from the drum turning, requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My defy laundromaid 720 does not stop the waterflow once the drum is full, which leads to water running out the bottom of the machine and then gives me an error LE


problem either in the water level control switch or the solenoid valve that shuts off the water
if the water doesn't shut off but it progresses progress to wash while still filling, it will be the water solenoid valve

My defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 suddenly stops spinning and gives a ue error


I had the same problem: E9 error when switching the machine on. This indicates something is wrong with the pressure switch. (or connection to the pressure switch). When you open the top cover at the back of the machine it will be in the right hand corner (when looking from the back of the machine). This is a round device with a clear tube coming in at its bottom and a three wire connecting plug at its side. When unplugging I found one of the pins corroded (green tarnish). After cleaning it off with some steel wool the problem became intermittent - indicating the connection is not too sound. Just bending the pin slightly did the trick causing it to soundly make contact inside the plug. Problem solved!!

Error E9 means a problem with your water pressure sensor. Check the sensor by pulling the hose attached to the bottom part of the tub and blow on it and test the terminals of the sensor if it will close or open.

Defy Laundromaid 1300 has a serious leak. I've checked the filter, and there is nothing in it to cause it to leak. We had a Defy techinician come out and he also cannot find the leak. Please advise...


water pump is not functioning properly, when in spin cycle water in drum pushes up and over the top, symptom is water leaking out the bottom which indicates a leak but its actually the water pump not pumping out all the water. Gets air trapped in the pump which results in air lock and no head for the pump to function properly. Fix is to lower your drain pipe to same level as pump when in spin cycle so that the water runs out freely this will not solve the problem but will allow you to continue washing until you have the problem sorted.
