Question about Smeg 18 in. DWF409WH Slim-Line Free-standing Dishwasher
Well, firstly my smeg dwf 409 ss dishwasher was at a rented house, they called and said that they smelled a burning smell from it and that the cycle didnt drain properly- so i took the machine away. When i plugged it in at home it drained and although it seemed to drain and be ok i didnt run a full cycle again i just put it in the garage, where it stayed for 18 months.
I went to plug it in the other day and it went BANG and tripped the whole house- is it worth repairing or should i admit defeat? I am technically ok and have taken machines apart before, but i dont want to waste my time if i can get a new one for a little more.

Easy one first try this to see if it helps
Water pre-heatingYour dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

take the kick panel off. On some smeg, there is a small suppressor capacitor on the lhs tucked in the wiring. this breaks down. snip it off - no need to replace

SOURCE: Machine won't drain fully
If the drain pump is working fine, and water flows from the machine and there are no clogged drain lines, then the problem is usually 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 too low then that is the problem.
