Question about Smeg 24 in. DWF614SS Stainless Steel Free-standing Dishwasher
Problem E6 keeps coming on, will not wash as it cannot drain, i have made several attempts to clear the filter and base bit with boiled water, pipe cleaners ......but i cannot clear the problem, the dishwasher is only 4 mths old
Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !

riff...not sure what the bits are...first, they may be food crumbs or the like. Dishwashers have macerators to grind up food particles but they have no really good way to get rid of them in the wash cycle. Scrape plates of any solids before loading them. If the material is shaped like water droplets, you may have hard water stains. Use Jet Dri or a cleaning product which claims to help and use the amount specified. Your water temp may be low...it should be 125F or better. If you can run the hot tap and put your hand under it...it isn't hot enough. You can also use the heated water setting to deal with this.

The second problem is almost certainly a symptom of the first - leaking water is reaching some of the electrical terminals and shorting them to earth.
First thing to do is to make sure the strainer in the bottom of the cabinet is clear - if it's really badly choked, you can brew up quite a spectacular flood.
After that, best I can suggest is to move the machine onto a piece of dry carpet, run it for a short while and see whereabouts the carpet gets wet first. Use this to guide your subsequent leak-hunting.
If there's any hint that the leak is from the front of the machine, check the seal between the lower edge of the door and the bottom of the washing chamber. On some machines, this gets covered with a thick layer of hardened grease (which is fine, until bits of the grease start to break off). If this is your problem, scrape the remaining gunge off, give the metal surface a good clean,and expect the last vestiges of the leak to cure over the next couple of washes as the seal recovers its proper shape.
Next thing to look for is the device which senses when the machine is full enough (and tells it to stop filling). Let the machine get to the stage when it is leaking nicely, then turn it off, open the door, and see if the cabinet has filled to overflowing. If it has, then drain it, then unplug the machine and take the back cover off. Look for a thin hose coming out the bottom of the washing chamber and running up to a small unit mounted on the case some way up with a pair of wires going to it. Check this hose for cuts, splits and blockage.
If the leak is coming from further back, then you are going to need to look inside to see how much of the inside of it is wet. Use this to guide you to where you need to do a more detailed inspection.
Check all the nearby hoses, looking for splits - especially where they push onto fittings, cuts (especially anywhere they're pulled over sharp edges) and just generally to see if they've pulled off completely.
Next, check any plastic fittings in the area to make sure they haven't cracked, and look to see if there's any evidence of water seeping out of the joints between the different fittings (in case you've blown an O ring, rotted a gasket away, or just had some screw work loose)

E1 error code is an antiflood error code.
Water will be in the base of the washer due to a leak. So what you need to do is pull the washer out and tip it 45 degs backwards and the water will drain out from the base. so you may need a towel for that part.
Once the water is out the antiflood switch will reset itself and the washer should start to work again from there.
Then just keep an eye on it and see if you can locate the leak if there is 1.
