Hi.

Ensure that there is no water at the bottom of the tub. If there is water, check drain well and drain hose, then test pressure switch in the drain system.

If there is no water, the the thermostat (or the dryness) sensor must be replaced.

In that case, cintact Smeg at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Dishwasher washes dishes but does not dry even though that display shows dry icon


First ,Check for a water puddle on the bottom of the dishwasher .If you have water there, you more than likely have a plugged drain or drain hose, or bad drain pump (less likely) If no water is there see if the dishes are hot after a cycle. If they are not you could have a bad heater (that circular thing on the bottom of the dishwasher) other problems could be the timer or computer Depending on the model brand and age of the dishwasher .One last thing there is a vent to let moisture escape that could be bad but then you would have hot wet dishes

Most dishes in any dishwasher are still wet when cycle is finished. The heat built up in the dishes during the washing cycle is what causes the water to evaporate when the machine stops.
If you want to accelerate the evaporation, simply open the door very slightly so that as the hot air escapes it causes the dishes to dry quicker.

Dishes still wet upon end of cycle


Check if the heater is working. This can be done by checking if the dishwasher has steam and dishes are warm when cycle is complete. Also check if the Rinse aid has not finished. Make sure the Rinse aid dosage is not at too low.

The dishwasher dose not get hot at all and when it has finished washing every thing is still wet


  • Well, the dishes inside the dishwasher will still be wet unless you use a dry cycle at the end of the washing cycle. Not all dishwashers have this option. Even though mine does I rarely use it as the dishes will dry on their own in two hours.Saves a little money. Even when washing on a normal cycle the dishwasher itself should not get hot. It may blow a little steam out the front vent. Hope this helps.
