Question about Dishwashers

2 Answers

Smeg diswasher model numbe4r DF612SDX. Just coming up for two years old, various codes re error messages. E2, E5, E8. We have taken off the front panel where the buttons are - nothing obvious. We have taken the bottom off and tried to locate a reset button, but can't find one. We have cleared all the filters inside and checked the water intake and the filter there. Out of ideas, can anybody else suggest what we can try?

    Kindly take a this guidelines to check the unit, i'm right here thinking where could be the problem came from..



    Here take this simple steps:



    1. Note all sounds or other symptoms the dishwasher shows.



    2. Look for some of the more common problems. This includes water temperature deviations, poor washing, failed motor, overflows or leaks or door-latch problems, among others. Anything that can't be dealt with through your troubleshooting guide needs the use of a professional. Check for obvious causes, like blockage in any area or extremely dirty situations affecting water flow.

    If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

    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!

DWF614SS smeg dishwasher E8 error code


The E8 fault is generated when the internal switch on the alternating valve fails to register that the diverter valve has switched over. It may be that the disc inside your valve isn't moving completetly over or the switch isn't working. The feedback from this device is to the main pcb, therefore there are only three parts involved, the pcb, the diverter valve and the wiring. It is possible to test the valve using a multimeter to confirm it is indeed switching properly.
I don't have a part number unfortunately but if you go to www.smeg-service.co.uk you'll be able to get the part number and price of the part.

Good luck with your repair.

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

I have a smeg dishwasher which keeps displaying error code 8. I know this has something to do with the water supply to the baskets but have checked and there does not seem to be a blockage. Any help...


Hi

I saw your post today and see your fault was dated back in July 2008. Well its a year late and I had the same problem coming up on my machine SMEG DWI 614, error E8 to be exact. After 6 hours of trying to resolve this cleaning PCB, etc. (one can see its the recession and money is scarce) I finally pulled out the diverter valve, dismantled it and left it in some boiling water with limescale remover. I made sure the plastic teeth in the mechanism could spin properly and inserted back into the machine....

And finally the machine works once again. It was 6 hours of my time but probably saved me +/- £150.

E6


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.
