Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Err 09 means a water filling fault.

Basically the dishwasher has a filling fault in there. Things to check are the water supply it turned on and the water pressure is good.

If thats fine then you need to check the water inlet valve and see if this is faulty. As this is the part that lets the water in.

Other then the water valve the other parts involved in the filling is the pressure switch underneath and the control board.

So check the water supply first to the dishwasher and if thats fine then you need to check the water inlet valve with a multi meter and see if faulty.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

I see the question is still open, Do you need help on this still?

If not then if you could remember to rate the answer that would be great.
