Water pump out malfunction lights flashing on new SMEG DFC 612 S

We have just bought a 24in freestanding SMEG DFC 612S dishwasher. We have connected it up and we have checked that the water inlet pipe and oulet pipe are not blocked. However when we start the machine it appears to start but after about 30 sec the water pump out malfunction lights start flashing. The manual suggests checking the siphon but we are not sure how to do this. Please advise

The second problem is almost certainly a symptom of the first - leaking water is reaching some of the electrical terminals and shorting them to earth.

First thing to do is to make sure the strainer in the bottom of the cabinet is clear - if it's really badly choked, you can brew up quite a spectacular flood.

After that, best I can suggest is to move the machine onto a piece of dry carpet, run it for a short while and see whereabouts the carpet gets wet first. Use this to guide your subsequent leak-hunting.

If there's any hint that the leak is from the front of the machine, check the seal between the lower edge of the door and the bottom of the washing chamber. On some machines, this gets covered with a thick layer of hardened grease (which is fine, until bits of the grease start to break off). If this is your problem, scrape the remaining gunge off, give the metal surface a good clean,and expect the last vestiges of the leak to cure over the next couple of washes as the seal recovers its proper shape.

Next thing to look for is the device which senses when the machine is full enough (and tells it to stop filling). Let the machine get to the stage when it is leaking nicely, then turn it off, open the door, and see if the cabinet has filled to overflowing. If it has, then drain it, then unplug the machine and take the back cover off. Look for a thin hose coming out the bottom of the washing chamber and running up to a small unit mounted on the case some way up with a pair of wires going to it. Check this hose for cuts, splits and blockage.

If the leak is coming from further back, then you are going to need to look inside to see how much of the inside of it is wet. Use this to guide you to where you need to do a more detailed inspection.

Check all the nearby hoses, looking for splits - especially where they push onto fittings, cuts (especially anywhere they're pulled over sharp edges) and just generally to see if they've pulled off completely.

Next, check any plastic fittings in the area to make sure they haven't cracked, and look to see if there's any evidence of water seeping out of the joints between the different fittings (in case you've blown an O ring, rotted a gasket away, or just had some screw work loose)

My smeg Module DF 612 SDX7 dishwasher tripped the circuit last night early into its cycle. We could smell burning coming from the dishwasher. Any ideas and what we can do to fix it?


If you can get it to operate for a few seconds, that will at least tell whether the motor is still good and turns freely. Otherwise it sounds like board may have failed.

Good luck!

White knight dishwasher flashing red light and. Won't. Empty .
could be something in drain pump need to bail the water out of dishwasher best way is a small scoop take filter out and you can get to the lowest point of sump. Take water out and use sponge for the dregs . Un plug appliance and turn water off remove inlet hose and waste pipe. Lay the appliance on its back and remove the base of the appliance you will then see the drain pump remove 3 screw and gently remove pump head and remove object but watch finger if it's a shard of glass .

You don't say what you're missing. Smeg maintains websites with contact info to get what you need. www.smeguk.com is in the UK.

What you should generally have is all sliding racks and a utensil holder. Included should be a drain hose and a manual. If a door panel is interchangeable, that is usually bought separately. Water inlet fittings are not included and neither is an exhaust drain connection.
