No need to meove the door. Should be small silver legs on the bottom and use a wrench to raise or lower the machine.

How do I level my dishwasher?? I can see 1 of the brackets is stretched on the side that is lower.

First and most importantly, unplug or shutoff the breaker to the dishwasher. Some people laugh or scoff at the notion of turning off the power when working on appliances that are energized but for everyones safety this is a must! If the Dishwasher does not have a dedicated electrical breaker the power plug may be located underneath your kitchen sink, thats where my own is located which makes it handy to disconnect the power when working on the machine.
Ok, here we go... Start by removing the bottom dish rack from the dishwasher and set aside. now, place a level on the track either right or left where the dish rack slides/glides. The level should be positioned to the front and back. This will tell you whether or not the machine needs to be raised or lowered from front to back. If it is off level front to back you now know that adjustments need to be made. Next, with the door fully opened and in the down position, place the level horizontally across the front of the door to check how level the machine is from right to left. If adjustments are really needed proceed to the next step by removing the kick panel at the bottom of the dishwasher. This is done by locating two to four screws/bolts that are located at the front, upper right and left and or bottom right and left of the kick panel. Once these fasteners are removed and the kick panel is pulled loose and out of the way you can locate the two jacking bolts at the very bottom right and left of the dishwasher (this is all the way to the bottom under the framework and are touching the floor like little footings. These jacking bolts are similar to the ones used on most washing machines and are used in the same manner. The jacking bolts are used to raise and lower the machine to the right and to the left as well as lowering and raising the front of the machine to level front to back. Next, locate the countertop bracket at the top front underneath the counter and remove the securement screws and set aside. Your dishwasher is now resting freely on the floor and can be adjusted using the jacking bolts at the bottom of the machine to raise or lower as needed by rotating the jacking bolts just like you would turn a screw, in or out to raise or lower. Start by repositioning the level back inside the dishwasher on the dishwasher rack slides/glide area from front to back like you did the first time. Now, turn the jacking bolts as needed to level the washer from front to back, it only takes small rotations to move the machine. Once the machine is level from front to back, place the level on the fully open and in the down position door as you did before and check level from right to left. If necessary adjust which ever jacking bolt(s) is needed to bring the washer level, up or down. Helpful Hint: If it is difficult to rotate the jacking bolts because of the weight of the washer, place a small pry bar under the front of the dishwasher frame and gently take the weight off of the washer so that the jacking bolts can be rotated. Once you have leveled the machine from front to back and from left to right you are ready to to put things back together. Start by re-inserting the countertop bracket screws at the top of the dishwasher underneath the countertop. Next re-attach the kick panel using the screws or bolts that you removed earlier. Once all fasteners are in place and the dishwasher is secured, open and close the door to make sure it opens and closes freely. If all is good then it is time to plug the machine back into the electrical outlet or turn the electrical breaker back on. You are now ready to start using your newly leveled dishwasher! Sorry this is long but I like to be detailed so as not to leave anything out, I hope this information is helpful and not confusing. Good Luck!

Smeg dishwasher leaking from front right hand side, cold leak

The door seal may need replacement, the hot water may soften the seal and fix the leak.

E2 error in smeg dishwasher

e2 is overfill or flooded base.
take the bottom front panel off and see if there is water in it and if so, mop it out. if it reoccurs, then you have a leak.
you will see a float device in the front approx middle and this is what actuates e2. if fault is intermittant, try putting a small weight on this - a washer for example.
if e2 is being caused by overfill and not a flooded base, then the water intake moulding needs replacing

Smeg dishwasher tripping out fuseboard

Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.

SMEG Dishwasher - Water fill level is too low

Hi, I found your problem stuck here from one year ago.

I will post my solution the same, as reference for you and more users with same problem, apologies.

Re: smeg dishwasher fails to fill with enough water to sucessfully wash. It does put some water in.. but nowhere near enough.

Before checking parts inside the machine, ensure that water is coming from the faucet at the back with regular pressure.

To start check the water level sensor.

This is usually a floater sensor located on a side inside the dishwasher.

Check if water level is working properly, if the floater is getting stuck then that is the problem.

If the water level is OK, then the responsible is usually the inlet valve, or clogged inlet lines.

From description it looks more like a faulty water level.

Smeg dishwasher

You don't say what you're missing. Smeg maintains websites with contact info to get what you need. 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.

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
