Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The 9E code as it pertains to your Samsung is as follows according to the Samsung service manual...

ERROR TYPE - Low water level detected.

OCCURING CONDITION - Occurs when low water level even after water supply resumes after low level is detected the 1st time.

POSSIBLE/EXPECTED CAUSES - a) Low level sensor defective. b) Low level sensor wire loose/not connected. c) Main PBA fault/defective ( main board )

Steps to resolve-check.
Check for foreign material in the floater of the Low Level Sensor.
- Check the voltage between both ends (pink and brown wires) of the Micro Switch.
When operating normally after water is supplied:
- Check only the Micro Switch.(Remove the connectors before checking.)
Lift the lever: Short
Lower the lever: Open

- Faulty: Replace the Low Level Sensor, Remove foreign material from the floater
- Normal: Replace the Main PBA assy.

If you don't think this is something within your scope of abilities please call an authorized Samsung service center in your area.

Let me know what you find and I'll be glad to help you in whatever manner I can. I do have a generic service manual for Samsung dishwashers ( essentially all the same as for components and repairs) but you'll need to provide an email address for me to send it via pdf attachment. Good luck.

Dishwasher starts and then stops with 9E flashing in window.

The 9E issue indicates a low water level in the dishwasher. Check your hoses. Make sure that no dishes flipped and filled with water. Make sure that the dishwasher is level. Next check if there is any debris blocking the water level (overflow) sensor. It's in a small square plastic box on the left side of the dishwasher. Pull the dishwasher forward and check for loose or damaged wires to the water level sensor.

If the wiring is good and the error persists, replace the sensor. Replace the wiring if it is damaged. If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to point you to the replacement part. If your dishwasher is under warranty, contact Samsung for the repair.

I hope this helps.

I have a 3 year old Samsung DMT800RFS dishwasher. It had a 9E error, so we changed the part on the side and replaced the interior gasket. Now we get a oE error and I can not enter Service Mode to re

I don't know if this is the same. However, on my washing machine I had to clear out the water trap at the bottom of the machine. I know I have to clean it out every 6 months to be on the safe side. This also helps the machine to not smell like old stagnate water and helps your clothing smell fresher with not having that water build up and sit. I found all strange things in all kinds of water overflow tubs.

I have a Samsung Dishwasher DMT800RHS, dishes have brown film, tried Lemon Magic, fixed 9e code, still dirty dishes. Used liquid detergent, still dirty dishes. Sometimes white film.

Sounds like its not draining properly between cycles. Its time for an appliance engineer I'm guessing. Can you access the drain pump hose area to see if its clogged.

Why won't my samsung dishwasher wash

There are so many things that can cause this problem; things like a bad controller, a bad door switch or latch, a bad pump motor, a bad case-brake assembly, a bad ECS sensor, a bad fuse; bad wiring in the junction box, and more! I would need more information about what happens when your try to run it; for example do any lights light up when you press different keys? Are any lights flashing, and if so, which ones? Do you hear any sounds? etc....

9E error code on dmt800rhs dishwasher

I also had the 9E error code on my Samsung dishwasher DMT800RHS mmodel. I had to call Samsung and the nearest authorized Samsung service representative came to my house last Tuesday, January 29, 2013. The cost of the call is $100 which really annoyed me off considering the dishwasher is only 1 1/2 years old. Two South Korean guys showed up and to fix the problem just press down on the Heavy, Delicate and Power button at the same time for a few seconds and a menu will appear on the top left hand corner of the panel. Scroll down the menu by pressing the Normal button until you reach "FT" and the dishwasher will automatically fill up and then autimatically drain. If it does not drain then scroll down to "S" and the dishwasher will drain. Thsi should get rid of the 9E error message and your dishwasher will work fine but if not you have to repeat the procedure maybe 2 or 3 times until the 9E error message disappears. If you constantly get the 9E error message then you may need to replace the part which is about $60. The part is extremely sensitive to either hard water or food particles which is why the 9E error message appears. Therefore, scrape your dishes thoroughly so the food particles are minimized and the sensor does not go off which causes the 9E error message.
