Question about Smeg Dishwashers
My dishwasher works fine until after the final rinse, then it does not drain all the water.
This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.
PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

Commonly this is result of low water pressure or hose height/length
As long as the water is below the heating element and the dishes are getting clean its actually normal. Sometimes the pressure or hose length/height meets specs but will not always drain all water.
But as long as it is below the heating element this is normal
I am sure.

have a Smeg STX-45 dishwasher. After washing the utensils, machine is not able to drain the water. Can you please tell me what could be the problem. Is there any switch I need to press for the same or something else. I have used the machine for the first time.

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

Now is a good time to remove the spray arm and the filter/strainer underneath it. Clean everything you remove in the sink. With a flashlight, inspect everywhere in the sump area and remove debris (watch out for broken glass!) Inspect the impeller, making sure it is not broken and that is spins freely. While you are in there, look carefully at the heating element for damage and breaks.
Reassemble and test. If it continues to leave a film on the dishes (especially visible on the glassware) suspect the heating element (no kidding) If it is not heating during the final rinse and drying cycle, that is your main problem.
If problems continue when the heating element is working, then the wash motor is failing and needs to be replaced.
Good Luck, please post back here with what you find, OK?

I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.
