This can be water draining from your sink into the dishwasher via the drain pipe, assuming the drain pipe goes to a spigot on the sink trap.
take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck to prevent this.

I have smeg built in dishwasher. Acts like running cycle but i don't think it's getting enough water. the soap tables are not dissoved. before if opened door during cycle lots of water but now none

Check water inlet filter, check for blockage at the stop valve .

The rubber washer does come loose and blocks/limits the flow into the dishwasher. The fill cycle is on a timer and any restrictions in the water connection will under-fill the unit.
Hope this helps?

Dishwasher cavitates. I have a Smeg DI612CA9

Does the drain hose loop up to the top of the unit before going to the sink drain? If it goes down first it may be siphoning or draining by gravity.

Pump running continuously, Yes there was a drain pack, have emptied water, float switch clicks when moved with screw driver. Only one red light shows ( last cycle - pots ) what else can I do... James

What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

Moved into new house with Smeg Dishwasher Model number SA 425, but no intruction manual.

I found a site that has many, many manuals for Smeg Dishwashers. None are what you asked for. Perhaps you have the wrong number.

Check the site out, maybe there is one there that will match your machine. Good Luck.

Are you saying it overfilled and flooded out, or did it empty onto the floor?
