Smart Drive machine on starting, water runs straight through into drain, thus not filling up

Most likely the water coming into the washer through the Water Inlet Valve could be siphoned out to the drain pump and out the drain hose because of an issue with the pump or plumbing. Is your washer overfilling?Is the washer detecting an overheat error? Observe carefully as to what part of the washing cycle the water is draining out. By watching the washer as it goes through its wash cycle, you can find out which part or error is causing the Washing Machine To Not Fill With Water and Keep Draining issue.

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.

My Zanussi WJD 1257 washer/dryer's drying cycle has started finishing early. No error codes. The wash cycle works fine but the drying cycle is simply stopping prematurely. You can set it to dry for 45...

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

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.

Washing machine stopped and says "sud". What does that mean?


During Drain Routine

During the Drain Routine, the water level is checked continuously. Normal drain will occur until the

pressure switch senses no water in the wash tub and there is no foam (suds). The drain pump will

operate an additional 15 seconds after the pressure switch reports no water or foam.

If the drain routine operates for four (4) minutes and the pressure switch senses any foam (suds) in

the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will start the "Kill-Foam" Routine. (See description of this

Routine below.) After the Kill-foam Routine is concluded, the Drain Routine will restart. If, after

four (4) minutes the pressure switch still senses foam in the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will

go into Failure Mode. The digital display will show, F02.

During Spin (Extract) Routine

During the Spin/Extract Routine the water level is checked continuously. If, during this routine, the

pressure switch senses the presence of foam (suds) in the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will

stop the drive motor and the basket will stop spinning. The electronic control will count the number

of spin repetitions that are attempted due to foam (suds). There are a maximum of three (3)

attempts for each Spin/Extract Routine.

Kill-Foam Routine

1. The Remaining Time counter is stopped.

2. The digital display shows Sud.

3. The Drain Pump is turned OFF.

4. The Central Control Unit will fill the wash tub with 1 gal. (4 L) of cold water.

5. While the tub is filling the basket will tumble 1 sec. ON/15 Sec. OFF.

6. Once the tub is filled, the drive motor will turn OFF and the basket will rest without any

movement for five (5) minutes.

7. After the five (5) minute rest, the remaining time counter will restart and the digital display

will show the remaining time left in the routine.

NOTE: If the Kill-Foam routine was initiated during a Spin/Extract Routine, the tumbling action

will be reduced to a cycle of 3 sec. ON/13 sec. OFF. If, at the end of either the Drain or Spin/

Extract Routines, a suds condition still remains, the digital display will show Sud.

Sud will also be displayed for a short period at the end of a cycle, if a Suds condition was

detected during the cycle. This will alert the consumer to reduce the amount of detergent in
subsequent uses.

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.

See full troubleshooting here: My washing machine does not drain.

That means that the machine detected a problem at a certain point of the cycle and stopped.

If the machine stops when filling check the inlet valve and the water supply.

If it stops because ofervilling check the water level switch.

If it stops when the cycle is hot water only , then check the heating element.

If it stops when draining, then inspect drain filter, drain pump , and drain hose. You access the drain hose removing a panel at the front side of the machine.

If it stops when motor is supposed to spin faster (rinse) then it is motor control unit or motor coupler.

If it is none of the above, then it is a defective control board.

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
