Smeg Dishwasher not circulating water

I have a Smeg dishwasher model sa823x and it initially fills with water then stops. After awhile the water seems to be boiling (you can actually hear it) but is not circulating to wash dishes etc. If i reset the cycle the water drains OK from the bottom. Is there more than one pump or can the drain pump be ok to drain but faulty to circulate? Hope this makes sense.

Possibly blocked with fat build up. Boil kettle and poor boiling hot water in drain area at bottom of machine...along with a cup of white vinegar...leave to soak for a few minutes and try again to flush through a few times. Good luck!

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?

SOURCE: dishwater fills with water, hot...but doesnt wash?

when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

SOURCE: Smeg dishwasher Beeps when trying to drain...seems to wash ok but

thanks for the above. I solved the problem by cleaning ALL of the drainage pipes--removing them and thoroughly cleaning in detergent and bleach--the small diameter outlet from the dishwasher WAS partially blocked. More to the point I connected from my hot/cold sink tap to the end of the outlet hose and put (carefully) back pressure into the D/W--after a short wait there was a surge and loads of rubbish including small bit of broken glass, a large staple (?) etc came back into the bowl below the d/w filter. I cleaned it all out and repeated 3 times, vacuuming out from the bowl any debris. After that I tested the d/w and it worked faultlessly. Why can't they tell you this in their troubleshooting? Trust SMEG service!

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?

Dishwasher cavitates. I have a Smeg DI612CA9


Does the drain hose loop up to the top of the unit before going to the sink drain? If it goes down first it may be siphoning or draining by gravity.

Simpson Silencio 850 leaks - the water doesn't seem to stop filling. Replaced all seals, but it keeps filling until it leaks and we have to stop it manually.


Hi, I've just purchased a 2nd hand model of your dishwasher. mine actually leaks from the black lining underneath. I've just patched it with some Sellys bathroom sealant. I don't know more about your problem but sounds like it could be something not timing out to stop the water, maybe buy a new 1 :P

SA 660 SMEG dishwasher constantly filling....


this can be water draining from your sink into the dishwasher via the drain pipe, assuming the drain pipe goes to a spigot on the sink trap.
take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck to prevent this.

SMEG Dishwasher - Water fill level is too low


Hi, I found your problem stuck here from one year ago.

I will post my solution the same, as reference for you and more users with same problem, apologies.

Re: smeg dishwasher fails to fill with enough water to sucessfully wash. It does put some water in.. but nowhere near enough.


Before checking parts inside the machine, ensure that water is coming from the faucet at the back with regular pressure.

To start check 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 getting stuck then that is the problem.

If the water level is OK, then the responsible is usually the inlet valve, or clogged inlet lines.

From description it looks more like a faulty water level.

My Smeg dishwasher DWF 64 SSE won't go onto rinse or dry


Easy one first try this to see if it helps

Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take a look at this link http://www.smeg-service.co.uk/support/index.php?a=1&cat=4

Would seem to be the anti flooding device on the inlet hose
