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.

Ge electric water heater. 3 years old. keep tripping reset. both elements show 13 ohms, with no gronding out condition. help!

Have you replaced the thermostat they will short out and keep tripping to they go bad. Check the ends of the elements also for any bad places. Ran along this a few times and it ends up being a bad thermostat causing it to trip. You will reset it and it may last a day or more and keep resetting it and eventually it will short out or burnt out. So please check it out and this helps you.

The Samsung washer (Top Loading) WA80V3WE not switching on and water drains out continuously. The display shows time 22 and I ve selected quick wash mode and extra low water level. I ve checked the child...

if water just keeps draining check the drain hose,if it's down to far into the stand pipe the water will just keep siphoning out,if that's ok,when it starts let it run for the first two minutes and then it should reset and start,also try unplugging it for like 5 to 10 minutes and plug it back in,that will reboot the computer board.

Water keeps dripping in the tank, but the tank doe...

This description is a little vague, but I will do my best to help. The first question I would ask is. Is this water going down into the bowl? This can be checked by adding a couple drops of food coloring to the water in the tank and waiting a little while before looking for colored water in bowl. If there is colored water in bowl than the most common problem would be a faulty flapper or flush gasket. If no colored water shows up than the ballcock valve may need to be adjusted or replaced. I hope this helps.
