My smeg di 612ca dishwasher door will not shut.any ideas?

Check that nothing is protruding from inside of machine. If still won't shut check that nothing is stuck in the closing mechanism. As a last resort contact manufacturer or service agent.

Smeg Dishwasher not circulating water

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?

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.

It is likely the water circulation system is faulty. This dishwasher uses a single motor to run the water pump and the drain pump. If you hear the wash pump operate during wash cycle then it is likely there is a blockage in the water circulation manifold which distributes the water through the arms.

If you do not hear the pump operate during wash cycle then the sensor is faulty. The sensor tells dishwasher to switch to drain cycle from wash cycle.

You need to disconnect the power and the hoses.
Also unsrew the machine from the cabinet to pull it out.
When you have pulled the machine out, put some towls on the floor and tilt machine on its back. You will notice a lot of water come out the base of the machine.
This will reset the flood switch which has been triggered.
Reconnect the hoses while the machine is out and run a cycle. You have a water leak so you need to find out where the leak is from. In Smeg dishwashers, the most common item is a burst drain hose. Normally where it comes out the back of the machine, the hose bends and tears as it pushes against the back wall.
Remove the from kick panel and look inside the base for leaks while machine is running.

Won't drain completely. leaves just enough water that you can feel it with your fingertips. no clogs in the lines. could it be the drain pump or something else. same problem occurs on all cycles.


The most common cause for the problem is a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is used by electronic control to detect water level and stop the drain pump. If the switch is defective, the pump may stop too early.

Check the small drain pump. Possibly its asking the pump do drain to allow for fresh water, but because low level is not detected it shuts down. The dispenser draw normall opens when the hot wash cycle starts.When you think its washing,briefly open door and see if eater is spraying out of the nozzels.If no water visible, check the main wash motor for sticking
