Question about Smeg FA311X Top Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

Smeg dishwasher fault - stops mid cycle.

My SMEG DF 612 SE dishwasher has flashed a fault code. From the manual: E6 "The appliance is not able to pump out the water from the tank". There does not appear to be an obvious blockage in the machine or the outlet pipe. Subsequent washes have either finished but left a residue that looks like an absence of rinse aid or it has just 'stalled' during the cycle and left all the lights on. Any ideas? Thanks

SOURCE: smeg dishwasher problem

Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine. Test that it get power (with a multi- meter). In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve. Good luck

Its not possible for water to get in your pump, its a sealed unit, and runs in oil/gas mixture I would look for water in any motor relays, and wiring junction boxes.

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.

My smeg Module DF 612 SDX7 dishwasher tripped the circuit last night early into its cycle. We could smell burning coming from the dishwasher. Any ideas and what we can do to fix it?


If you can get it to operate for a few seconds, that will at least tell whether the motor is still good and turns freely. Otherwise it sounds like board may have failed.

Good luck!

Smeg dishwasher. Fills but will not run


Sounds like the pump is jammed, the humming is probably from the pump motor.

I had this problem and fixed it tonight. When selecting a program water pumps into the machine, but with no drain i ended up with too much water and error code E6.

I traced the fault to a broken wire between the electronic module in the door and the pump. The point at which the door opens and closes on the cables had frayed the insulation and broken through the wire. As this was the live feed to the pump and a potential short from 240VAC to the chassis its dangerous!!

Repairing the wire break and re-insulating fixed the problem
