Question about Smeg 24 in. DWI612 Built-in Dishwasher
Hello geoffdavies ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
It must be a hose leak or one of the seals around the, solenoid, or pump.
Or the least likely, if you ever heard a big bang ever inside the wash compartment!
I had a knife or fork that has been catapulted across the inside and it made a little body whole that that caused the leak. you may have not noticed because it is so small and only happens when it is on and running with pressure and a full load of water!
I'm only outlining all the possibilities!
And giving you ideas to check considering you sound like you did the repair your self.
Ideally to have it running and outside the whole you could see the leak.
Or we keep the front panel open and with a flash light in hand, lay on your back or side on the floor and look under the machine when it starts until you see the leak.
Let me know where the leak is!
Bless You Huuum,

How old is the dishwasher?
Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
