HI Milan. Sounds like you may have a partial obstruction in the drain water pump. To check this out remove the lower front panel and you will see the drain hose attached to a small plastic pump. Disconnect it there and remove the pump from the dishwasher frame so u can look inside of it. Remove any piece of glass or other obstruction in the pump and also check the hose. That should solve it for you.

Smeg Dishwasher not circulating water

Sound like the thermostat doesn't know what the water temperature is set at.

It could be the wash pump. Check to see that the float on the bottom of the DW is unstuck by gently picking it up and setting it down { It is shaped like a mushroom and controls the water level in the bottom of the DW }. Did it move freely?

Locked lite is on machine wont work


If in addation to the light being on and the door is actually locked the most likely problem will be because not all the water drained out of the washer.... the door lock is tied into the water level sensors in the washer and until the water level sensor determines that water has drained it will not unlock the door. The usual reason the water hasnt drained is because the filter screen on the drain pump is built up with debris and the water can not drain,This tip i wrote will tell ya how to take apart the washer to access the pumpo and clean the fliter screen.

It's worth repairing.

Check water level switch inside the machine.
Check the inlet solenoid for proper operation. It might have got stuck and remain
in open condition always. You can reach this area by opening the back door of the machine. give a gentle tap with a wooden piece on the valve , it may return to the closed position.

Clean all the inlet and drain areas of the machine.

Dishwasher water level drops during washcycle

Check the stand pipe for the drain hose it must be higher than the water in the machine or it will just run out should be 30 inches or higher. I just worked on one with this same problem the drain was about a foot high it would fill and run out almost as fast as it came in.The pump will pump it out when it drains.

This problem is caused by a faulty water level switch.

It is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub.
As the water level increases, pressure increases on the air in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle.
Look for any obstruction or defect in the tube. The switch can be checked for continuity with a multimeter. If it has no continuity the switch is defective..

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Wont fill with water

Hi, Check the drain hose to make sure it hasn't dropped lower than the water level in the washer.
Sometimes when working on the machine, the drain hose gets moved. Does the drain hose go into a sump pump?
PLEASE let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

There is a drain hose that runs from your dishwasher to underneath your sink. (usually connects in right below the drain spout)

It sounds like this may have become clogged, or the sink drain is clogged causing the water to back-up in to the dishwasher drain hose.

Water not draining out of dishwasher, goes into spin, but water stays

Low water pressure can be an issues. Also incorrect drain tube install.

For most dishwashers if the water level is below the heating element its actually normal. Sometimes like i said due to hose length or water pressure the water will not always drain but if its below that level its ok.

Last if you have a garbage disposal run it to clear lines.

Water stuck in th machine like what you said is not normal.First you need to drain the water by taking out the hose behind the machine which is into the wall. Plug off first before these jobs. Bring the hose to ground level, the water will run off. Bucket or whatever to collect. Re-fit pipe to correct level in standpipe carefully, without pushing in too deep. The pipe level is important; you can check, there is a water level mark behind machine. You need to clean out your outlet filter;(which is accessible thru the front bottom right side of machine, small push door, or plastic screw) this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. For the pump, tubes, etc you hav to open up behind the machine. Be prepared for water to come flowing out.......
And don't forget to rate me pl, if the solution has worked......
