Question about Smeg DWI614 Built-in Dishwasher
I took the front panel off the diswasher in order to re-fix the handle on the decor cover (couldn't manage to get decor cover off any other way) & after putting back together again the door closes, the wash cycle displays but nothing happens - as if the dishwasher still thinks it's open? - any help greatly appreciated
thanks for the above. I solved the problem by cleaning ALL of the drainage pipes--removing them and thoroughly cleaning in detergent and bleach--the small diameter outlet from the dishwasher WAS partially blocked. More to the point I connected from my hot/cold sink tap to the end of the outlet hose and put (carefully) back pressure into the D/W--after a short wait there was a surge and loads of rubbish including small bit of broken glass, a large staple (?) etc came back into the bowl below the d/w filter. I cleaned it all out and repeated 3 times, vacuuming out from the bowl any debris. After that I tested the d/w and it worked faultlessly. Why can't they tell you this in their troubleshooting? Trust SMEG service!

Thanks to hijoloo for pointing me in the right direction. The offending part is the diverter valve, a paddle inside blocks one of two outlets in turn actuated by a micro switch, a motor and reduction gears. Check switch for continuity with multimeter (ohms) then check motor and gears turn freely by hand. My problem was a stiff paddle due to limescale. Soak in boiling water to free off then oil cog (externally) and rebuild.
turn the washer on its side and open up the bottom black plastic plate, than disconnect the two black hoses from the white pumphouse in the middle of the washer. disconnect the connector and open carefully the housing by removing two screws and the motor. check the switch and clean the white housing. Check also if there is nothing inside the rotorhouse. after this build every thing back and hope that its running. it worked for me. succes!
