Question about Smeg Dishwashers
Smeg Dishwashers dwa149s has water remaining after wash. After cleaning out water, no lights come on; checked filters, spray arms, water inlet and drain. What should I try next?
Reset it by turning power off to it or unplugging it for a minute. If it still wont work then you need to take the kick panel off and see if there is leak under the machine.

Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.
Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.
Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.

SOURCE: check water light is on
I had the same problem! First disconnect mains power, then switch off the mains water to the water input hose, and disconnect the hose. Disconnect the waste outlet hose from your drainage. ( this will release some water from the hose ends, so a washing up bowl would be handy ) You will need to tip the dishwasher on to it's back, be carefull not to damage the waste outlet hose, and watch out from more water spillage. Next remove the two screws on the base metal cover, and spring out the cover from the two side clips, the cover can then be removed, you should have a screw holding an earth lead remove screw and lead from cover.
Inside the bottom of the dishwasher you will see a small electric pump fitted to the side of the dishwashers drain, it has two wires with spade connector on them, disconnect these from the pump noting colour of the wires for reassembling. The pump has the same diameter hose as the outlet hose. Next carefully remove the rubber elbow pipe from the pump and hose end this will need to be washed with clean water. Then to remove the pump, press and hold down the locking tab, where the pump is fitted to the drain, and twist the pump anti-clockwise. The pump will then release from the drain. Inspect the pump impellers for damage, and that the pump has free movement, also check condition of the rubber O-ring. Inspect inside of drain for broken bits of china and glass, remove and clean, also check the outlet hose for any blockages.
( run some water though the hose backwards from the water tap and collect it in a bowl from the pump end of the hose ) Reassembly is the reverse of the above, check electrics inside have not got wet, if ok switch on. The check water light should now be off.

F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.
