I never heard of a smeg DW but you can bet the door interlock is hung up in some way. Ususally its micro switches on the latch assy. Then again, could be a bad relay on the control board. I would dis connect the switch first and see what happens. The way I would do that is disconnect power at your circuit box and dis connect the switch, tape off the wire, latch the door and return power. Bet it doesn't run. Most likely the switch assy. Would help to know the right brand name tho...

anti flood device has been activated, this means you have water in the base of appliance. most likely a leak, or if you have been using 3 in 1 tablets, and rinse aid this will over foam appliance and foams leaks into base.. try tipping d/w back to let water out of base..then try d/w again... if anti flood activates again...call an engineer.. ps check big nut that secures salt container to base of d/w, it can come loose which will cause water to leak into base ally

SOURCE: Dish washer will open and let the gel pack out.

The gel packs are not supposed to go inside the dispensor. It is for powders & liquids. The gel packs & blocks just go into the dishwasher, per directions on package. They either go into the bottom or with the silverware.

SOURCE: water wont drain after wash!! Dishes wont dry all the way also

HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I have smeg built in dishwasher. Acts like running cycle but i don't think it's getting enough water. the soap tables are not dissoved. before if opened door during cycle lots of water but now none


Check water inlet filter, check for blockage at the stop valve .

The rubber washer does come loose and blocks/limits the flow into the dishwasher. The fill cycle is on a timer and any restrictions in the water connection will under-fill the unit.
Hope this helps?

Dishes not cleaning after full cycle running


Your screens are plugged with food residue in the bottom of the unit. clean it out. You can use 1 gallon of white vinegar for your wash after you clean the screens. Start your washer to fill with water but after the water starts, open your door and pore all of the gallon in the unit. Let it now run for 4 minutes and stop it by opening the door. Leave the door slightly open for 1 hour. close the door and let the cycle continue for 4 more minutes. open the door and repeat it a couple of more times. Let it sit all night with the vinegar in it and in the morning - close the door and let the cycle continue to the end. This should help soften and clean out the food particles in the unit. You can repeat the process and get a better cleaning then too. All the scale should be off your dishes now.

My dishwasher no longer cleans my dishes and white spots remain even when jet dry is being used.


Dishwashers rely upon water circulation. Make sure there is nothing blocking the pump receiver at the bottom of the washer, like paper labels from gars, or large food pieces. It also relies upon the proper amount of water in the washer. After the washer fills and starts its cycle, squeeze the handle to open the door but do not open the door until all the sound has stopped. The water level should be visible and close to the top edge of the basin. Don't worry, opening the door after the pump has stopped will not spill water on the floor. If the water level is good and you are sure there is nothing blocking the pump receiver, check the stem in the center of the basket.
