I have a Smeg DWD1SSE-1 dishwasher that has started randomly tripping the breaker on my fuseboard. I initially thought it may be the heating element, but after restarting the dishwasher I found that the water was getting hot. I then wondered if it could be the thermostat in the dishwasher. As there is only a vague timer that seems to be different on every load, I cant fathom out at what stage of the wash is causing the problem. Any help or advice on this situation would be much appreciated.

Re: Smeg dishwasher tripping out fuseboard
Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.

When you say "trips out" do you mean the circuit breaker trips? If so the breaker in the electrical box may be bad. Also do you have anything on that circuit pulling high amps when the dishwasher is running? Also when does it "trip out" during a pump cycle or when the heating element cycle starts?
If the pump does not work at all then the pump may have went out. If it happens when the heating element cycle starts then it may be the circuit is overloading or the breaker is bad.
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.
your english sounds fine to me - far better than my bulgarian!
literally - in the front of the machine down at the bottom there is a panel about 10 cm high which can be unscrewed to give access to the base of the machine
e2 is overfill or flooded base.
take the bottom front panel off and see if there is water in it and if so, mop it out. if it reoccurs, then you have a leak.
you will see a float device in the front approx middle and this is what actuates e2. if fault is intermittant, try putting a small weight on this - a washer for example.
if e2 is being caused by overfill and not a flooded base, then the water intake moulding needs replacing
Hi WE give this answer in good faith that anybody who benefits from it will make a donation to COMIC RELIEF, because I've just fixed my smeg d/w which is a great relief and no joke when not working, SO DONATE. My dishwasher tried to start but would not ,it tried but could not, the panel showed no fault. The fault was caused by the failure of the solinoid (electric magnet) which opens the soap dispenser mechanism, located inside the door. I used an electric light up screw drive (from £ shop) which glows when you touch the end, to test the solioid, you could also use a multi meter though not as reliable. We replace solinoid, (Common solinoid from any appliance repair shop) but I note on ebay there is a dishwasher guy selling the complete dispenser unit with new solinoid fitted. Hope this helps( we have just had our first wash) Do not forget to donate Minnie Moon (twitter) P.S. Sorry I can not remember how to spell solinoid (electro magnet)
