Is there a buzzing noise from the bottom of the machine as soon as you turn the power on?
E8 states the diverter valve has a fault.
Turn the machine and water supply off.

You can feel which part was making the buzzing by carefully touching each part under the machine (caution: shock risk!) It's a flattened conical shape in the middle, with two hoses connected to it, one screw and 4 thin wires.

Undo the screw, pull the hoses off by pressing the clips together, and disconnect the multiplug for the wires. The motor simply clips off the grey gearbox, and the gearbox itself is clipped to the valve body and retained with two screws.

If the seals on the valve are stiff, work some silicone into both the main bearing seal and into the valve faces themselves and the diverter should be OK.

Thanks to hijoloo for pointing me in the right direction. The offending part is the diverter valve, a paddle inside blocks one of two outlets in turn actuated by a micro switch, a motor and reduction gears. Check switch for continuity with multimeter (ohms) then check motor and gears turn freely by hand. My problem was a stiff paddle due to limescale. Soak in boiling water to free off then oil cog (externally) and rebuild.
turn the washer on its side and open up the bottom black plastic plate, than disconnect the two black hoses from the white pumphouse in the middle of the washer. disconnect the connector and open carefully the housing by removing two screws and the motor. check the switch and clean the white housing. Check also if there is nothing inside the rotorhouse. after this build every thing back and hope that its running. it worked for me. succes!

Daewoo Washer Error E8


Hi.

E8 is fault connection from CCU (Control board) to balancing sensor.

When you get E8, this is often because of a faulty control board.

Try first disconnecting power for a couple of minutes, to reset the appliance.

If you still get E8, then you need to call a technician. Testing is done jumping the two wires to the sensor to bypass the sensor, then replacing either sensor or control board.

If you want to arrange a repair, then you can call the phone number listed on the machine owners manual.

Regards.

Smeg Dishwasher - model unknown


model numbers for dishwashers are generally where you can get to from the front, if they are noit on the front panel then look inside the door rim where the rubber seal is, either a small sticker on the door rim itself (inside) or where the door fits on the main cabinet, open the door fully to look for this sticker, sometimes placed under the front of the lid

We have a Smeg SA8605W which has had a similar problem 3 times in its short 3 month life. The problem with ours is that the control panel on the front pushes against a very brittle plastic frame to activate the micro switches. Because of the brittle nature the 'fingers' of plastic break off and either get stuck holding the machine in a set cycle or break off fully so nothing functions. Gaffa tape or Elastoplast is a simple solution.
