Question about Smeg 24 in. DWD1SSE-1 Built-in Dishwasher
When i turn my dishwasher on, it sounds as though it is going to work but suddenly stops after about 1 second. You can hear what sounds like the motor beginning to kick in and then it stops and you hear a quick swoosh of water if you put your ear to the base of the dishwasher. I have checked for power, cleaned the filter inside and tried the tip on how to start a stalled dishwasher but it is still not working. I have had the dishwasher out and unscrewed various parts of it to try and get to the motor but was afraid to go any further in case i forgot how to put everything back together again. Have you any suggestions or will i have to get a repairman out. Thanks.

My dishwasher tried to start but would not ,it tried but could not, the panel showed no fault.
The fault was caused by the failure of the solinoid (electric magnet) which opens the soap dispenser mechanism, located inside the door. I used an electric light up screw drive (from £ shop) which glows when you touch the end, to test the solioid, you could also use a multi meter though not as reliable.
We replace solinoid, (Common solinoid from any appliance repair shop) but I note on ebay there is a dishwasher guy selling the complete dispenser unit with new solinoid fitted.
Hope this helps( we have just had our first wash)
