SOURCE: 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.

Where is the distributary valve?


that is a very good question
i cant find a "distributary valve" for sale

lots of water inlet valves hot and cold single units


almost every dishwasher user manual and has code e8 mentioned and faulty distributary valve

why the fault
.If the distributary valve have worked for 150
seconds, and could not reach right
position during wash cycle,after the cycle is finished, the dishwasher will shut off all
loads, the alarm buzzer will ring for 30 seconds and the window will display "E8" at rate
of 1Hz in 30 seconds, and then display "E8" , drain water for 2 minutes meanwhile

Error code E8 appears mid wash, heater is working ok, machine has been hooked up to the hot water instead of cold. I have since directed cold water through water valve.


hot water form the house takes less power to bring up to machine temperature so by hooking it to cold water will increase the power consumption
call a service center and get the explanation for the error codes and that will explain what is faulty
you didn't mention the make and model of the unit and every error code appears different
for example in a fulgor milano machine code 8 is failure of orientation of distributary valve ===causes open circuit or break of distributary valve
for hoover nextra e8 is dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element===causes check water heating element/wiring--check wiring to main control module
go google and type in-- dishwashing machine error code 8-- and see if there is any site for your machine to get the error code and causes
other than that get in a service technician for a correct diagnosis and fix

Was awakened in the middle of the night by the F&P dish drawers (top drawer) playing the "Star-Spangled Banner" alternately with "Brahms Lulliby", lights flashing, lots of beeping! .....the lights...


Not funny Cindy - Any chance you can access the power breaker in the panel for the dishwasher? Sometimes with even short power bumps or outages, electronic controls get out of whack - Leave the breaker off for a minute and then turn it back on - As for the water level, I would question if the hookup was done entirely correctly - The idea is for the drain to connect to the most clear point of the sink drain - if you drain came with a pre-made Dishwasher drain connection, did the installer make sure that the plug was fully removed before connecting - Even in my mobile dishwasher I might get an inch of water, but not what you are experiencing - Good Luck

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.

Later
