Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: E2 error in smeg dishwasher
e2 is overfill or flooded base.
take the bottom front panel off and see if there is water in it and if so, mop it out. if it reoccurs, then you have a leak.
you will see a float device in the front approx middle and this is what actuates e2. if fault is intermittant, try putting a small weight on this - a washer for example.
if e2 is being caused by overfill and not a flooded base, then the water intake moulding needs replacing

An Idea: the Overflow sensor or float is bad, stuck, disconnected and its messages to STOP filling aren't getting thru to the CPU
This is usually located in the right frony of the machine or in the side wall. Float types get gummed up with 1/2 dissolved soap powder (god what we do tho the water systems) see if it moves. Sensor types have a hole that feels or senses water. If clogged, they lie. Clean out with toothpick and blast with a bit of hot water and air. Retry
If fixed, let me know... if not, see the yellow pages for parts dealers ;-)

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

The E8 fault is generated when the internal switch on the alternating valve fails to register that the diverter valve has switched over. It may be that the disc inside your valve isn't moving completetly over or the switch isn't working. The feedback from this device is to the main pcb, therefore there are only three parts involved, the pcb, the diverter valve and the wiring. It is possible to test the valve using a multimeter to confirm it is indeed switching properly.
I don't have a part number unfortunately but if you go to www.smeg-service.co.uk you'll be able to get the part number and price of the part.
Good luck with your repair.

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.
