The buzz that you hear is the water line solenoid. It probably is not opening up to let the water through. You should replace this solenoid and it will fix your problem as long as you have water coming up to the diswasher's solenoid valve.

SOURCE: NO WATER COMING THROUGH ON DISHWASHER JUST LOUD BUZZING NOISE

Check the instruction manual, Smeg often use the program lights to give an error code.

You'll have to first ensure that the valve is open where the supply gets its water from the sink supply, and water is getting to the dishwasher. There is a garden hose type swivel adapter after the valve, right? Close the valve tightly- even if it scrapes the wood - and then unscrew that hose coupling and see if the hose is full of water. Look there for a strainer inside the hose that is clogged. Clean it. If that is good, reconnect and ensure it's tight.Open the valve. Now check the dishwasher to see if it's getting water. Then at the point where the hose enters the dishwasher is a spring loaded hose ring coupling, right? If not, and there's another garden hose adapter, remove that (after turning off the water again)and see if there's a strainer there. If water is supplied to the dishwasher okay, then it is probably the electric solenoid valve inside the base of the dishwasher.

Loud sounds


Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    My dishwasher is making a loud buzzing noise but otherwise is working ok. What could the noise be?


    Hi,
    Check to see what is working or running when it is making the buzz...is it when the water is coming in ...then it would be the soleniod coil on the fill valve...
    if it is when it is washing, then it would be the motor going bad...
    if it is when it is draining, then it could be the pump if you have a separate one or it could be a soleniod that directs a flapper to run the water out...
    lots of possibilities...

    SMEG Dishwasher - Water fill level is too low


    Hi, I found your problem stuck here from one year ago.

    I will post my solution the same, as reference for you and more users with same problem, apologies.

    Re: smeg dishwasher fails to fill with enough water to sucessfully wash. It does put some water in.. but nowhere near enough.


    Before checking parts inside the machine, ensure that water is coming from the faucet at the back with regular pressure.

    To start check the water level sensor.

    This is usually a floater sensor located on a side inside the dishwasher.

    Check if water level is working properly, if the floater is getting stuck then that is the problem.

    If the water level is OK, then the responsible is usually the inlet valve, or clogged inlet lines.

    From description it looks more like a faulty water level.
