SOURCE: over-level water error

I finally found the cause of my "over-level water error", and I fixed it. In my case it was a gummed-up water level float chamber (part #13 in the diagram here). Once I pulled it out, cleaned it, and put it all back together the dishwasher is running fine. What follows are the symptoms I experienced, and some pictures of what I saw and did to fix it.

Symptoms: After nearly 2 years of owning a DMT400RHS, dishes began to progressively come out with sediment on them. They were not being cleaned nearly as well as previously. This symptom seemed to start fairly suddenly and remain for about 2 months. Then, the dishwasher began to occasionally error out, first with "Drain Error" or "Over-level water error", then later consistently with the "Over-level water error":

For awhile we could just restart the dishwasher and it would do a load. Later, however, no matter how many times we restarted, unplugged, etc. it would not continue. Of note, there was never actually a drain problem, as it would always, well, drain.

The error was never triggered during the initial "drain phase". It was always triggered after that phase, when it was filling the tub with water, specifically after it had been filling for awhile. Eventually, we figured there must be a float someplace that was all gummed up and not moving up with the water level.

Well, here's what I found when I finally pulled the entire dishwasher out and laid it down on its side (facing the door, tip it over to your right):

Inside that little box with all the sediment and glop is a wing-shaped float that couldn't move due to the glop. I simply held the whole plastic thing under the sink faucet to rinse it out. I had to take off the tub pan in order to pull off the drain hose that's attached to the back of this chamber. After rinsing it out, I put it back in and the dishwasher seems to be running fine:

    Have over lever water error on samsung dishwasher

    Your: Have over lever water error Probably means over level? In other words water is too high I would guess. Sounds like you have a bad water level sensor, or connections from or to and from or to the "brain" I'd unplug to reset the "brain". but it that doesn't help it's probably service tec time. Ask to estimate the price.

    Low water level

    I have a Samsung DMT400RHS and I started getting the low water level error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED blinking). The error started intermittently a few weeks ago, but the the last day or two the problem was solid, and simply restarting the cycle no longer worked.
    I looked of the code in the dishwasher user guide and it said 'low water level.' Searched the internet and located the repair manual at for $15. The manual was well worth the $15.
    The manual suggested: 1) loose level sensor connector 2) Faulty Assy case sensor or stuck floater aka 'remove foreign matter' 3) Bad Main PBA assy.
    Since we do 10+ loads a week for the last 18 months the stuck floater seemed to be the most likely cause.
    Go to Samsung DMT400RHS Low Water Level Error ('Normal'+Heavy'+Smart Auto' LED) (new link is click the i on each picture to see the caption - DM 04/17/2016) to see the pictures and read the captions documenting what I did. Do this at your own risk. You must turn off and disconnect the electric power and turn off the water supply before you begin.

    High Water Level ErrorSamsung DMT300

    The parts mentioned, 8058475/SWITCH, PRESSURE and 8058500/HOSE are Asko parts. Samsung should have their own equivalent parts, but the Asko parts should work as well... I think the Samsung parts would be less expensive?

    What is E no 1 on washing machine wa13G7Q1


    Error code 1E means WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR. This error occurs when the Generated Frequency Signal of water level is low or high.
    Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
    Low Level = 30.00 Khz
    High Level = 15.00 Khz
    If the Water level is detected as low or high for more than 5 seconds, then it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 minutes after which you would get this error. To resolve this issue you can try and clean the filter screens inside the water lines. To check this disconnect lines where they go into washer use needle nose pliers to pull out screens clean with water and put them back. This will resolve the issue.

    Error code ( IE ) on my samsung washing machine model wa13g7q1


    * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

    Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
    Low Level = 30.00 Khz
    High Level = 15.00 Khz

    If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

    Samsung washing machine sw7oz1fw-yl start with errorr code E1


    This is Water Pressure Switch Error.

    A paragraph from the Guide :-

    * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)
    Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
    Low Level = 30.00 Khz
    High Level = 15.00 Khz
    If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
