Question about Smeg DWI614 Built-in Dishwasher

Brand New Machine, can't open the door

Smeg di612ca intergrated dishwasher, delivered 2 days ago, just tried to take the protective packaging off, i have removed the polystyrene and clear plastic but there is what seems like a 'transportation device' a black piece of plastic with a screw through the middle, unhelpfully this screw is upside down so all that i can see is the treads. The door is not budging. It has been suggested that I plug it in and see if the door then opens, no luck, any halp will be appreciated. Cheers, J.

    yep same problem. how the hell do you open the door??

    I have the same problem as above really. The screw he mentioned seems to be on the underside of the base unit, right at the top where the door should close too (not actually on the door). I am baffled as to how to open this thing. Incredibly silly that there isn't a single instruction on the packaging, nor on the online help files.

    I have the same issue.

    The door appears to be clamped by a black locking mechanism which is screwed tight from inside the machine. The screw is inaccessible.

    I have a plumber coming tomorrow to organise the waterfeed so will let you know then if we've managed to sort it.

Leaking dishwasher

1-if it is brand new it should be under warranty 2-try changing soap brand, some suds up more than others and sneak past the seals 3- where is it leaking? (around the door, or underneath ie likely motor seal or plumbing) 4- check Plumbing connections 5-most "tubs" nowadays are one piece plastic, look it over carefully with a good flashlight. if you think you have found a crack remember where it is start the dishwasher and run it till it starts leaking and then open it and examine that spot-with the heat it may open up more or otherwise change

The machine starts, does not heat the water, and just continues to run unless turned off manually. I am thinking either the timer or the heating element has failed. The machine is a model with the control...

hi test the element,the wires in the door can also break,it may be a thermostat/thermistor.if all these test ok it may be the pcb which is known as an intergrated these boards can be very expensive.

I have a Smeg DWF410 dishwasher with error message E9


E9 is a repetative E1 error - flood protection activated. Check tray under machine for leaks. If dry, find youself a nice long cable tie and lift the rubber flap at the back of the sump moulding underr the filters. Proceed as if rodding out the drains - you'll be surprised how much muck and goo comes out. Usually solves it.

If problem still persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Smeg Intergrated Dishwasher

Do any objects hang down (or stick up from below) and block it? Is the shelf pushed all the way in so it gets water through it? Does it seem to be spraying water, but not spinning?

Try spinning it by hand to see if it moves freely. It may just be blockede by a small object in the water.
