Probably about the easiest job you can do.

1) Unplug washer
2) Remove one screw at each end of the top console, (looks like they will be in front on your model, if not in front look in back).
3) Push timer knob in for off and turn it counter clockwise to unscrew the knob from the timer and pull the dial skirt off.
4) Remove the one or two 5/16" screws that you will find under the timer dial skirt and timer will drop down into console.
5) flip console up and unplug connector from timer
6) Install new timer and reverse procedure to close back up.

How to fix a Samsung DMR57 or DMR78 dishwasher making a grinding noise and error code 9E

Sublime Master john63 reveals the kata for this encounter:

<<<There is a grinding noise when first started up>>>


Many Samsung DMR57 & DMR78 dishwashers are known for developing a rattling/grinding noise during DRAIN MODE.

This is usually caused by a broken plastic mounting tab from the upper rack ADJUSTERS.

Each side of the upper rack has a tan/gray square RACK ADJUSTER---after a mounting tab (or 2) breaks off---this piece of plastic eventually ends up in the DRAIN PUMP HOUSING.

The DRAIN MOTOR should be removed to inspect for debris.


<<<after a minute or two I get 9e error code>>>


A normal amount of water in a DMR78 dishwasher would be---at about 1 inch past the HEATER SHIELD in the tub.

If you've tested the SWITCHES on the LOW LEVEL SENSOR---then they're not at fault.

Press the following buttons at the *same* time:


The word "ALL" appears for 3 seconds followed by "t1"

(NOTE: Test #1 checks the functions of the INLET VALVE--FLOW METER--LOW LEVEL SENSOR)

Press the DELAY START button---the DRAIN MOTOR will run for 45 seconds. Then---water will enter the tub.

When the PULSE COUNT (on the display) reaches "660" or greater---press the NORMAL button four times.

A flashing "t5" will be displayed & water will drain for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds---the "t5" will stop flashing.

Press the NORMAL button again---"t6" will be displayed. The word "OFF" should appear in the control panel display---indicating that the LOW LEVEL SENSOR SWITCH is in the correct position for *No Water* in tub.

If the INLET VALVE--LOW LEVEL SENSOR--FLOW METER function normally----replace the MAIN BOARD.

Check the plug connections behind the JOG DIAL of the Control Panel.

Check the plugs on the MAIN BOARD for good connections/no damaged wires.

If all look good---replace the MAIN BOARD.

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter
will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash.
Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2
and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4.
The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time.
The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

An F06 is usually the motor control board. And yes there could be a bad connection at the plug. You can pull the motor control out and inspect the solder joints on the board. Although usually the board will require replacement I have heard of people cleaning the board and connections with electronics cleaner and the problem was solved.
