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:

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.

What causes a Samsung dishwasher to flash heavy and smart auto on control panel


Hello. The lights you describe are an error code that means over-level filling (overflow condition) and/or the leakage sensor underneath has detected water. You need to check underneath the unit for any moisture. There is a leakage sensor located at the center of the base, underneath the unit. If it detects water, it will notify the main board which will stop the unit until the condition is cleared.

What could be the problem on my Samsung DMR57LFS dishwasher with an E9 error after the low-level sensor is cleaned but the error still exists?


I have a Samsung stainless steel tub dishwasher and only 2 months after we had it installed we had all sorts of issues with it. We were lucky it was under warranty and turned out parts needed to be changed - upgrades from Samsung that were not done i nthe store where we purchased the dishwasher.. You may want to check with Samsung with your Mode land Serial Number you never know, there might of been a recall. Good Luck!

What is a E3 code on Samsung dishwasher


The E3 error code on Samsung dishwashers is due to the overflow water level being abnormally high inside the machine, this is caused by a blocked pressure system. Start by checking the supply hose for kinks and restrictions.

We have a samsung dmr77xxx dishwasher and it keeps getting a 9E error and stopping> what is causing this error? thank you


Most 9E error codes are caused by a sticky float located on the LHS of the dishwasher. You can sometimes do a temporary 'fix' by 'thumping' the left panel inside the dishwasher (towards the bottom).
