Question about Smeg 24 in. DWF614SS Stainless Steel Free-standing Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a SMEG DWF614 SS dishwasher. I continue to get an E8 error message. The diverter valve motor turns freely & the motor turns freely when they are seperated. However, when they are assembled, the motor turns the valve & continues to try turning the valve when the valve is on its stop position. Is the motor & valve faulty or is it the control. If you can answer, what part number would I require. Regards Leighton Davies

Hi, Every 2nd time I use my DWD612SS dishwasher the code E8 comes up - (anomaly in the system which distributes water to the basket). How can I fix this. Thanks


E8 - Defective alternate valve functioning
This alarm is generated when the programme starts and the timer card does not detect the signal
that the alternate valve is positioned.
This defect can be caused by:
- defective alternate valve
- electric connections are not properly positioned
- defective electric card

What does fault code 51 mean?


Error code 51 usually means a faulty diverter valve. Try and run a wash cycle, and observe the drain hose. If water comes out, the diverter valve should be fine, if no water comes out you should take your diverter valve out and check for debris, or continue to read through the following possibilities of why your washing machine is acting up, and the actions to take.

1. Diverter valve
Action - Check diverter valve continuity. If open circuit, replace diverter valve.

2. Motor Controller Board (drive circuitry blown).
Action - Replace Motor Controller Board
3. Diverter valve harness/connectors.
Action - Replace wiring harness

DWF614SS smeg dishwasher E8 error code


Thanks to hijoloo for pointing me in the right direction. The offending part is the diverter valve, a paddle inside blocks one of two outlets in turn actuated by a micro switch, a motor and reduction gears. Check switch for continuity with multimeter (ohms) then check motor and gears turn freely by hand. My problem was a stiff paddle due to limescale. Soak in boiling water to free off then oil cog (externally) and rebuild.

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

Is there a buzzing noise from the bottom of the machine as soon as you turn the power on?
E8 states the diverter valve has a fault.
Turn the machine and water supply off.

You can feel which part was making the buzzing by carefully touching each part under the machine (caution: shock risk!) It's a flattened conical shape in the middle, with two hoses connected to it, one screw and 4 thin wires.

Undo the screw, pull the hoses off by pressing the clips together, and disconnect the multiplug for the wires. The motor simply clips off the grey gearbox, and the gearbox itself is clipped to the valve body and retained with two screws.

If the seals on the valve are stiff, work some silicone into both the main bearing seal and into the valve faces themselves and the diverter should be OK.
