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.

Smeg Dishwasher Humming Noise


Hi olsworth,

 

I think you may have something hung up in the pump.  This is a bad situation.  See if you can remove the dish baskets, and remove the strainer cover in the bottom of the chamber and see if something is in the pump drain area. I am not real familiar with the Smeg, But I do know that humming is related to the pump motor in a strain. I will study this more and get back with you soon.  Please do not vote yet.  I am wanting to get this solved for you, and it may take a bit of study on my part to get you an answer.  Please give some feedback in to what you are finding on your end.

WE HAVE A SMEG DISHWASHER AND IT KEEPS COMING UP ERROR 1 MESSAGE ANTI FLOODING SYSTEM HAS BEEN TRIPPED HOW DO WE FIX


there is a water leak in your dishwasher. Need to find the source of the leak. Usually a cracked hose or water leak through door gasket.

You can check this by turning off the water supply and mains power. Take dishwasher out from under bench if you can and tilt it back and forth a few times. Wait 10 minutes and turn back the power. Check if flood message has disappeared.

Machine not takin any water


Before starting a washing program make sure that:
• The water supply tap is open.
• The correct amount of detergent has been added to the
dispenser.
• The baskets have been correctly loaded.
• The spray arms are able to rotate freely and without
obstruction.
• The dishwasher door is securely closed.

After you check all start the dishwasher again.

Keeps showing check water


As you know E9 is linked to the water inlet problem.

There are two scenarios here - 1) Are you using the Aqua-Stop safety system? If this is trigerring then it can shut the inlet water. The reason it can trigger is if the flood device located at the base of the dishwasher under the tub is seeing water. Now it is possible the 2 weeks wait for the technician caused the water to dry out and the dishwasher worked on his arrival. But the leak could have started again when it worked once again. So you could have a leaky hose or the door gasket.

2) going by the description of the error codes in this smeg document, I can foresee the error E9 is linked to the water level system which is not able to detect the level required for the dishwasher to start wash cycle. Possible cause is gunk around the sensor that detects the water level in the tub.
Refer a possible solution reported at this forum site.

What I am not clear is why is the dishwasher not doing anything now when you press the start button. Maybe try one thing at a time.

Please post a comment to confirm which way it progressed.

My Samsung dishwasher has a error code 4E after i start it up could you please let met know what this means thanks


Most common error codes that are caused by installation errors are:
  • 4E. If your dishwasher is displaying error code 4E, it can be caused by the water supply valve. The water supply valve may be closed, or not fully open. Most water supply valves are not frequently opened or closed. Because of this, they may be difficult to turn. To make sure this is not your issue, turn the supply valve to the fully closed position, clockwise, and then turn the valve to the fully open position, counterclockwise.
    • Check your water pressure. Your dishwasher requires a minimum of 20 psi and a maximum of 120 psi.
    • Water filtration info.

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.
