Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; Check page 14 about cleaning the large filter and removing the lower spray arm to do so, you will probably find a blockage there that is stopping the water flow (the rotation is driven by water pressure). If there is nothing visible and cleaning in there makes no difference, first check that the water can freely run through the spray arm by simply holding it upside down and filling it with water, checking that it comes out of ALL the holes (think of them as jets) and that there is no significant limescale build up. If you are unsure or the holes seem blocked, put the spray arm in a bowl of vinegar for a half day or so and the limescale should be dissolved. There can also possibly be particles of food blocking it (rice is a favourite) which can only really be removed by a bit of persistence with a tap or hose - a garden hose in the garden is the easiest and least traumatic way. (some spray arms can be opened up - if it can be it should be fairly obvious but it is unclear from the manual and unlikely for this model). Make sure when you reassemble it that everything is exactly in the right place and tightened down properly if still no luck, then check that the water inlet hose is not kinked, the tap (if present) on the inlet hose at the wall is not half off, and the filter in the hose where it joins the machine is not blocked (to check this you have to turn off the water supply and remove the hose). Inadequate water pressure due to a restriction in the pipe will stop the spray arm spinning. The last thing to try is a complete descale - there could be limescale blocking the water in a part you can't get to - a bottle of vinegar on a hot cycle with nothing in the machine works, or you can buy "dishwasher cleaners" which are usually strong citric acid or similar that you just put in as if it was detergent and run (again empty). If you haven't done this recently it is almost certainly worth doing anyway. In Summary if there is water at mains pressure getting to the spray arm and the holes in it are clear and it is fitted properly, then it will spin. Hope this helps - please ask again if you need any help carrying out these procedures :)

Keep getting a white film on all my dishes, not cleaning properly.

Check the temperature of the water. Should be 120 deg. Also are you using powder or liquid? Liquid dissolved a lot quicker that powder. So liquid is actually better to use. Try running the hot water at the sink until it gets hot before running the dishwasher. Also you may want to try mixing half cascade liquid and half lemon shine.

DWF614SS smeg dishwasher E8 error code

The E8 fault is generated when the internal switch on the alternating valve fails to register that the diverter valve has switched over. It may be that the disc inside your valve isn't moving completetly over or the switch isn't working. The feedback from this device is to the main pcb, therefore there are only three parts involved, the pcb, the diverter valve and the wiring. It is possible to test the valve using a multimeter to confirm it is indeed switching properly.
I don't have a part number unfortunately but if you go to you'll be able to get the part number and price of the part.

Good luck with your repair.

Dishes on the top tray still come out dirty after washing

This is probably a clogged internal disposal screen. This is a relatively simple procedure that requires 2 tools. There is a screen behind the cutter in the built in disposal unit that gets clogged easily. You may want to order a new part before disassembly. To disassemble: You will need 2 sizes of torqs (star shaped) screw drivers and some patience in reassembly. Be sure to note how things are assembled before removing them. You do not need to unplug the unit to do this as you will be inside the unit and not around any exposed electrical components. Make sure the unit has been off for a while so that the heater element is cool. Remove the top rack by squeezing and sliding the plastic locks upward (on the ends of the rails) Then slide the rack out. Remove the bottom rack turn the center plastic retainer on top of the spray mast cclockwise (opposite most all other screws) and lift out main spray arm remove screw from back center water pipe (oblong flat 2 piece plastic unit on the back wall inside) and rotate it clockwise to release the tabs under the pump cover. Lift above a carefully move out of the way loosen and carefully remove 4 screws from the pump cover/ diverter/ screen unit and lift out exposing the top of the pump and motor housing (usually grey plastic) Locate the screw at the front left of the pump cover that holds down the disposal cover. remove the screw and note which groove the screen is in as well as the side of the screen the blade is on. Replace the blade/ screen unit or clean the old one (under a tap of warm water and with an old tooth brush) and reinstall it. Assembly is reverse of above. Note! Be sure locking tabs are under pump cover as before and you don?t drop the screw for the oblong water pipe!

There is smelly water left in the Salt container. How can I solve this and drain it away? What is the cause? The model of dishwasher is Zanussi, Aquasave, DW24.

I was very disappointed to find out that you did not actually offer me a solution to this (surely very simple) problem. For this reason I certainly would not take out a plan with a company like yours. You have offered me no advice whatsoever although you promised assistance.
You are obviously a company that cannot be relied on.

Rud4000mq0 the paddle does not spin, i'm getting water but the paddle 's not spinning

Hello. Have you actually seen the water flowing thriugh the paddle? I suggest taking the washer out of its home. Remove the arm in question. Spray a good amount of CLR on the mounting hub and through the arm Calcium does build up and cause the force of water to be less than needed to rotate the arm. Its also ok to run some CLR in the washer once a month when its empty to keep it running calcium free. Thank you , Quinn

F2 flashing on lower drawer

F2 means "motor not sensed to be rotating"
You said "very rarely used" also. The two go hand-in-hand in most cases. If you leave the drawer sit unused for months and months, this can ruin the motor rotor. The rotor comes out with no tools. Remove the dishrack, the wash arm (both simply lift off) and then the stainless steel filer/cover. This is removed by rotating the collar counter-clockwise and lifting it up. Now rotate the collar for the rotor counter-clockwise and lift the motor rotor out of the pump base. See if it spins freely. it;s probably frozen. You also can try swapping the rotor from the upper drawer into the bottom and see if that will work for you. if the rotor is bad, it is a part number 525884P and you can get them here:

If you find this info to be accurate and correct, please rate my answer as a FIXYA.

Upper sray arm does not turn

Take the bottom spray arm off and take out the screen etc. When these are removed it will expose the volute cover. The volute cover is what the lower spray arm attaches to, there will be a few screws that hold it on, when the screws are removed it will lift off. Under it you will find a check ball, it should move freely, it is most likely stuck in place, if it is free it and clean it and the track it rolls in. re-assemble and it should work. hope this helps
