Check the pressure switch, aka water level switch. If this isn't the problem, it may be the water valve.

I think all you have to do (that's how I do it anyway), is turn the program knob so that the line is at the beginning of the drying stage (the little 'sun'), having first of course chosen the desired amount of drying time with the knob on the far left...
Hope this helps, good luck...

Hi, Take the top cover off and click the little red button on the thermostat/overload (small black box). Then try again. Sometimes these trip out as a safety precaution.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Could be that there is water still inside keeping the garments wet so sorry, try this but no promises!

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

I have a smeg washer drier wdi 146 with error code e13. Can you tell me what the problem might be. Thanks


i beleve your door interlock is fautly
or the wiring too it can overheat and cook
so youll need a new one from smeg uk
and check out the connector for any issues

see here for some details
although its a different model i would assume the company uses the same error code setup for all its models
and i would order direct from smeg

Smeg wm16aaa error code e06 Can anybody help me on the above please


HEre's a link to Smeg's web site with all the error codes:
http://www.smeg-service.co.uk/support/index.php?a=1#1

The only problem is that the code doesn't really tell you a lot though apart from it's probably not draining properly. Does any one have any ideas for E06?

This happened to us before and we had to actually reset the unit. I had to call the tech support and they walked me through the process.
