Question about Smeg CSU2001 Built-in Dishwasher
Recently our Smeg Allegra NZL705 have been filling the bottom of the machine with water after it managed to drain it all after a wash cycle. I took the dishes out after the machine has finished and everything looked fine. The next day the bottom of the machine was filled with water (that looks clean). I left the machine turned on... could that be the problem? The basket is clean... could it be blocked somewhere else? What can I do?
SOURCE: Machine won't drain fully
If the drain pump is working fine, and water flows from the machine and there are no clogged drain lines, then the problem is usually the water level sensor.
This is usually a floater sensor located on a side inside the dishwasher.
Check if water level is working properly, if the floater is too low then that is the problem.

First turn off the mains power to the dishwasher then check the internal filter and screen and clean it thoroughly. Then check the waste water hose and any outlet valve and make sure that it is unblocked and free of any obstruction or waste material. If you have access to the water pump you can check that it is free of obstruction and is able to turn and that none of the impeller vanes have been damaged. Then if all this is OK then try turning on the mains power and running a hot wash cleaning cycle to flush out any remaining sludge / debris. If this fails and no water is entering the machine then the most likely cause of the problem will be a defective water inlet valve or logic controller board and both will need checking and / or replacing by a service engineer. In this case it is most likely that the water inlet valve has become defective and will need replacing. This is quite a common fault with dishwashers and washing machines and is a relatively simple and cheap repair.
