Question about Smeg DWI614 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have the E3 error on my Smeg DWI614 dishwasher which would indicate a heater error, however it is heating the water in the bottom of the machine but it seems to time out. The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested). When I have done this (both times) the dishwasher has started again and run for 20+ cycles fine, then the issue comes back. Any ideas what this could be? The motor/pump seem to work fine when tested on my bench. All I can think it might be is the main PCB or maybe another sensor/switch which needs to be on condition prior to the pump starting and my fumblings are allowing it to work for a while. Powering off and on does not reset the problem. Any help appreciated. Regards, Mike

Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine. Test that it get power (with a multi- meter). In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve. Good luck

Check to make sure there r no kinks’ in the drain line or that it is not clogged it sounds like the sensor is tripping because there is too much strain on the pump just like a breaker.

Hello Friend,

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

Try this remedy.

When we have an error code this is the remedy.
This can reset the system.
First turn it off.
Cut power to the washer at the breaker and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Write back right away and let me know that it worked and solved the problem .
Bless You

How old is the appliance?








Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: Smeg dishwasher Beeps when trying to drain...seems to wash ok but

thanks for the above. I solved the problem by cleaning ALL of the drainage pipes--removing them and thoroughly cleaning in detergent and bleach--the small diameter outlet from the dishwasher WAS partially blocked. More to the point I connected from my hot/cold sink tap to the end of the outlet hose and put (carefully) back pressure into the D/W--after a short wait there was a surge and loads of rubbish including small bit of broken glass, a large staple (?) etc came back into the bowl below the d/w filter. I cleaned it all out and repeated 3 times, vacuuming out from the bowl any debris. After that I tested the d/w and it worked faultlessly. Why can't they tell you this in their troubleshooting? Trust SMEG service!

E3 Error


the E3 error is a result of water temperature not getting to a nominal value within a particular time. This could be caused by several factors like heater faulty, wash pump not working well, wash arms not circulating water as required. Need model number to help you further pin point if possible.

Refer this site for 60 inch dishwasher and this site for 45 inch ones.

E1 error code indicating anti flood has been tripped,it doesn't sound like it's taking on water. All the filters are clear. This unit has cost me a fortune in repairs since the warranty ran out,it wasn't...


Hello there:
Yes this is a common error code on these machines the anti flood switch that is a sensor that sits at the bottom of the machine when water builds up on this switch this error code will illuminate
So what you need to do is disconnect any power to the machine
then if your has a panel at the bottom that can be removed remove it and look to see if there is a little tray in there if so it needs to be emptied this is normally done by tipping the machine towards you at a 45 deg angle then hold it there for 45 seconds this allows for the flood switch to be reset
Now take a towel and dry up any wires that are wet you may be able to see the sensor too where the tray is if so make sure this is totaly dry
then restore power to the machine and give it a try i have had to use a hair dryer sometimes also to help dry the wires under these machines ok that is just a hint though ok?
Hope this solution has helped you out Please feel free to rate this solution for me it helps get the best posiable solutions for customers ok?
Best regards Mike

My smeg dishwasher is saying e5 what is the problem how can it be fixed


This means there is no water loading into the machine. Most common cause is a faulty water inlet valve.
You can test the power to the valve with a voltmeter. If there is power to the valves, then valves are bad. If no power to the valves, then there could be a problem with the selector switch or control board

E 3 code on smegf614ss dishwasher


A dishwasher that can not heat water means that the heating element has probably failed. Replacing that should do the trick. I do not have a source or cost of the part for you.

Stops pumping in middle of program


Hi there,

I know it is a bit late, but maybe it would help the others.
This E3 error means, that the water temperature did not reach desired level (for example 60C if you are using 60C program) in a given time.
The dishwasher starts the heater and waits for example 10 minutes for the water to reach the temp.
The heater is located on the left side of the dishwasher - it heats
water flowing from the bottom bowl to the sprinkler on the top.
There can be few reasons:
- the heating device is dead - easy to check - if the water is hot when E3 appears, then this is not the case
- the water duct from the bottom bowl to the top sprinkler is messy, and needs cleaning (there are some rubber pipes of quite small diameter)
- the temperature sensor (thermistor) is dead / not responding fast enough. It is mounted to the bottom bowl and can be reached from the front cover, under the doors.

Hope it would help to somebody.
I have already had this and few other problems. All of them have about 5-6 reasons to appear, and I think I know all of them for now :-)
For me, knowing what to expect and how to fix each E-something, this dishwasher is perfect and will last forever :-)

Regards,
Piotr

Smeg dishwasher


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.

You don't say what you're missing. Smeg maintains websites with contact info to get what you need. www.smeguk.com is in the UK.

What you should generally have is all sliding racks and a utensil holder. Included should be a drain hose and a manual. If a door panel is interchangeable, that is usually bought separately. Water inlet fittings are not included and neither is an exhaust drain connection.

Control panel


Try turning off the breaker to it for a few min… and then turn it back on that might reset it.

Stuck on Glass cycle!


Hi melH Sounds like the water is not heating. Will be either an open circuit thermostat, heater element, or the switch / relay that controls the element. Using an ohm meter, test the element for resistance. Check thermostats for continuity. Regards
