Smeg dose not takein water


Is the dispenser door opening.....f not the the dispenser is faulty
It the dispenser is opening but the product dose remain plugged in the cavity, the top wash arm may not be turning.
Clean out all of the particles blocking the top spray arm holes and spin the arm to ensure ti turns freely.
Also check that there aren't any items placed it the top rack that could stop the arm from rotating freely.
Product not coming out of the dispenser id usually always due to the top spray arm . if it is blocked with particles you may not have been cleaning the filter in the sump properly and 'bits' of food ate passing th filter, Make sure the filter in the sump is well firmly in place.
The last important point is to always run the machine at 60 degrees or more You need temperature to do the job properly.

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions. Water comes out of the holes on the top bar but it won't...


try starting the washer, then opening to door and checking the water level in the bottom of the machine, as far as I know, there should be enough water there to disolve the tablet when it sits in the bottom. if not that much, bung in a few cupfulls and you should see the pressure dramatically increase!

Detergent tablet not dissolving.


sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

Frigidaire FDB740RCS0 Upper Armnot Turning


the motor stops and runs in the opposite direction to pump water up to the top rack. you first need to listen for the motor to stop and start. if you hear that open the door and try to tell if water was coming out of the top spray arm.

Lower arm spinning slow/intermittent


running with the door open indicates another fault that could be dangerous unless you have bridged the catch for testing only, water should flow fast and forceful at all times that it circulates, through both spray arms at once, you have to look for blockages in the system, is the waste outlet pipe high enough, this allows the machine to fill adequately so it doesn't pump intermittently, i doubt very much this is an electrical problem hope i have helped a little
