Question about Smeg DWI614 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

E6 I have been getting E6 error message over and over again. I have had the machine to pieces, cleaned out the pump and hoses, and still the same problem. Occasionally, the error message changes to E8 or E1, but no matter what, I can't get it to work. Any ideas? When I start the machine, select any program and close the door after a short while the machine does not complete the wash cycle and I get the following message either: E1 or E2 will appear in the control panel Any suggestions Dave M

    bizarrely we have just started having the same problem - long beep and E next to the programme number

    Select program P4, close door and you can hear the dishwasher start but can't hear any water spraying inside the machine. There is a highpitched beep and E6 displayed on panel. Opened the dishwasher and the crocks are still dry, no soaking as per the norm.

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.

What do we do after replacing the pump on an LG frontload washing machin, yet still get error message OE?

Assuming you cleaned the pump strainer?

Likely the drain hose leading from the pump to the drain, the section

inside the cabinet that "u-turns" back down is plugged up with

junk.. I had to remove the hose from the machine and force water

thru it at a outside faucet to clear what looked like a turd from the

inside of the drain hose..My shop vac could not dislodge it..

My washer stopped mid cycle and wouldnt drain or spin or anything. The error message is "nd". Can I fix it myself? thanks


ND=-no drain error.
Remove the back panel you will see the pump. Simply remove the pump and remove the obstruction that is keeping it from draining. Check for thongs, baby socks and sometimes hair pins or even screws can obstruct the water pump. There's going to be some water left in the pump and drain hose, so get a large towel ready. Remove screws attaching black piece (motor) to white piece (housing), pull out motor and clean the housing and motor impeller. Reverse steps to assemble it back together. If you don't hear pump running after completing the cleaning, you may need to check the wiring and/or replace main control board located inside the console. If the pump seems to be running but no water is being drained - replace pump.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting

Error 21 was on washer, we cleaned out drain then started washer it appeared to be working, but then error message 21 came on again. It is very late so tomorrow morning we will open drain again.

Hello, it can only be dirty filtersomething in the pump drain line blocked up or failed pump. I would check the filter again and if its clean put the drain hose in a bucket see if it drains but chances are you will need a new drain pump. hope this helps please rate my answer thanks

I have a drain error

this basicly means you have something either caught in your drain or in your pump first thing to do would be to clean out through the clean out trap small door on lower part of the machine if after you clean this out and put the pump knob back in place and you still have the error then you would have something caught in one of the lines that go froom the pump which is a headache because you have to take the whole front of the machine off and disconnect each hose from the pump and the drain line and find out what is blocking but start with the pump and message me back if you are unable to clean out the pump please call a technicain if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

Error message on washing machine E20

E20 is "A problem with water draining"
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked
the drain pump may be blocked
or possible your filter is totally blocked. Clean out the filter everything will work again. Put a large bowl under the filter as you unscrew it; a fair amount of water could be there.
Good luck.Please rate the solution if accepted, also do post comments in case of any doubts.

Will not drain and shows E6 error code

I had this problem and eventually found a small piece of mussel shell in the bottom part of the machine, it seems they are very sensitive to the tiniest fragment of debris.
