Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a smeg free standing dishwasher model df612sdx you turn it on and it bleeps once with a green light on one of the programs. If you push the p button nothing happens along with the start button. If you turn it off and on a few times the program light moves and occassionly it will start then stop a few mins later. Any ideas. Thanks

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle. The light also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The reading should be about 3.6k ohm. If you don’t get a reading then the valve is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser solenoid for this issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Hi can any body tell me whats wrong with my smeg dishwasher it only has program lights which now do not come on at all a part from the power light which beeps/but after that nothing


Probably computer is corrupt. Go to your circuit breaker panel and remove power from the dishwasher for a full minute. THEN< POWER back on. That should reset the computer.....

Dishwasher manual


Hi Rosemarygard,

You filed this question under Smeg DWF614SS. You can get the manual for that model here- http://www.smegtech.com/site/smeg/pdf_libretti/19590081906-GB.pdf.

Searching for model M4608AL isn't leading me anywhere, so hopefully it's some sort of subcategory of the DWF61466. If you realize that your Smeg is another model, go to this page and type your model into the field on the left- http://www.smegtech.com/site/smeg/myapp/libretti/index.php?lang=EN.

I hope this helps.

NO WATER COMING THROUGH ON DISHWASHER JUST LOUD BUZZING NOISE


Check the instruction manual, Smeg often use the program lights to give an error code.

You'll have to first ensure that the valve is open where the supply gets its water from the sink supply, and water is getting to the dishwasher. There is a garden hose type swivel adapter after the valve, right? Close the valve tightly- even if it scrapes the wood - and then unscrew that hose coupling and see if the hose is full of water. Look there for a strainer inside the hose that is clogged. Clean it. If that is good, reconnect and ensure it's tight.Open the valve. Now check the dishwasher to see if it's getting water. Then at the point where the hose enters the dishwasher is a spring loaded hose ring coupling, right? If not, and there's another garden hose adapter, remove that (after turning off the water again)and see if there's a strainer there. If water is supplied to the dishwasher okay, then it is probably the electric solenoid valve inside the base of the dishwasher.

1. Check drain pipe, air gap and drain for blockage.

2. Could be too much dishwasher liquid build up (i.e. too much Cascade used over time, clogging things inside the machine). Remove all standing water first then boil a big pot of water (3 to 4 quarts) and carefully pour in to bottom of dishwasher. Let stand until cool. Attempt to drain.

3. Turn off Circuit Breaker to dishwasher. Open kick plate at bottom and look around for the cooling fan for the motor and spin it free in both directions. Look for any solenoids and push them in to the other position. Attempt to drain on dishwasher.

4. If the above steps don't fix it and you are not handy, it's time to call in the repairman or consider getting a new one. If you are handy, do a web search on more detailed solutions for your model of dishwasher (typical failure points are valves, impellers, pump etc).
