Question about Smeg 24 in. STX2 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The machine starts, does not heat the water, and just continues to run unless turned off manually. I am thinking either the timer or the heating element has failed. The machine is a model with the control buttons on the top of the door, only accessible when the door is open.

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Bosch SHU 3032 dishwasher gets stuck halfway through the wash cycle and just continues to wash until you manually advance it. I turned in on before bed one night and it was still running the next morning....


Hi,
It obviously sounds like a timer issue here, and as it's embedded in a big chip on the control board, I would think a new control board is needed.
The exception to this is if it is not heating at all, in which case it won't advance if the water is not hot enough. Try it again and see if it gets warm.
If not - replace the heating element.
Most machines just stop to heat up the water, but to cut down cycle time they may recirculate the wash-water first to speed things up.

Commercial glass sterilizer draining hot water tank


SOUNDS LIKE THE TIMER RUNS CONTINUOUSLY, DOES IT RUN WITH THE DOOR OPEN. HOW DOES IT GET WATER IF IT IS NOT "ON" THE WATER INLET VALVE COULD BE LEAKING INTO THE UNIT, BUT UNLESS ON SHOULD JUST OVERFLOW UNLESS IT AUTOMATICALLY SENSES AND HEATS THE WATER . IT MAY BE AS SIMPLE AS A TIMER OTHER THAN THAT CAN YOU JUST TURN OFF THE UNIT WITH A SWITCH, MIGHT BE CHEAPER........

If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your 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. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section.

Cycle stops, won't drain


This is either a bad timer or a bad heat sensor. On most cycles that call for the water to be heated it will pause the timer and continue washing/heating until the sensor is satisfied the water is hot enough. Try selecting a quick, delicate, or china cycle without heated rinse or dry. If it works this way the timer is fine but the sensor is bad. Sometimes cold water to the machine will cause this problem because the machine is not capable of totallly heating cold water. It is only designed to boost the temp. Make sure you run hot water at the sink before you start the machine.

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url: http://www.download-manual.com/shop/Zanussi-FLE1416W-User-Manual-pr-8261.html

Delonghi Incredible heat machine can't turn off the timer.


Timer is set by moving the little black switches out over the orange ring. You may need to use a coin--but slide it so that if the orange ring is visible when looking at it dead-on (crouching down, obviously) then it's off at that time and vice-versa.

Dishwasher not completing cycles


Is the water being heated??? When the timer reaches the stage where it will not move forward any further, after 5 minutes or so, open the door & see if the water is heating up. The timer often waits for the water to reach the correct temperature. Temp is measured by the thermostat. If the element tests OK, then it could be the relay that switches the element. The relay is turned on & off by the timer. I would say that if the timer is OK & the element has the correct resistance, then it is is more likely to be the relay. Last resort would be the thermostat, but my money is on the relay.
