Question about Smeg Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a six month old Smeg, integrated dishwasher, model D1612CT which has been working fine until recently. The pots are not clean. The cups and mugs have tea "rings" around them and the glassware is covered in a "milky" film, which comes off immediately if rinsed under the tap. I stack the dishwasher as recommended in the manual. I use loose powder rather that tablets, salt and rinse aid. Can you please sdvise me?

SOURCE: DISHES COVERED IN WHITE POWDER

To check on the source of the white powder (calcium?) soak some dishes in vinegar to see if this cleans them up nicely ... or if the 'white powder' is actually permanent etching. You may have very 'hard' water and will need to deal with that with a water softener or additives.

Read the following article for a better understanding and try the vinegar test . (also ensure you are using dishwasher specific salt to regenerate your integral softener... assuming you have one)

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

SOURCE: my glassware is coming out cloudy! the dishes are

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

It may be possible that something fell out of the filter and into the drain pump. The machine will do a short drain cycle at the start of a program and if it is jammed or blocked, this will cause this problem.

How do i fit smeg integrated smeg dishwasher


Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking how you fit your new dishwasher into the old dishwasher's hole, or are you asking how you get the actual measurements of the dishwasher because you're building a new set of cabinets and need to build it to fit?

I put in 12 cups of water and only 4 cups come out with coffee what is wrong with this. It is only one month old


This occurs occasionally if the unit needs cleaning or you are brewing a new pot of coffee immediately after emptying a hot pot of coffee.
Run a cup of vinegar through the coffee maker twice, run at least 2 pots of clean water through to rinse the vinegar out.
This should clear the problem until it needs cleaning. The suggested frequency of cleaning is every 30 pots, but this varies depending upon the type of water you use.

Glasses in top rack not getting clean anymore.


-Have you changed the dishwasher soap recently? What are you using? Is the powder remaining behind in the soap dispenser?
-Have you removed the filter in the sump area, cleaned it and removed any debris under the filter. (watch out for broken glass that is almost always found in 5 year old dishwashers.)

-You are running water at the sink until it gets hot, but you may still have problems if the heating element has failed. Recommend you check that element. If you can get to the element, check resistence of the heater to see if is has any at all.
If heating element checks out good, the next common problem is a failing wash pump motor.

Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir


I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.

We have a Smeg SA8605W which has had a similar problem 3 times in its short 3 month life. The problem with ours is that the control panel on the front pushes against a very brittle plastic frame to activate the micro switches. Because of the brittle nature the 'fingers' of plastic break off and either get stuck holding the machine in a set cycle or break off fully so nothing functions. Gaffa tape or Elastoplast is a simple solution.
