I inherited a smeg dishwasher when I bought my own flat.
When my dish washer finishes its cycle, it sticks on the bio setting and the final 3 lights are lit. I can't seem to make it reset to the start.
It takes an awful amount of nudging and turning the on off switch to get it to reset.
what am I doing wrong?

there is a float, usually at front left side inside dishwasher, that may be stuck..possibly an utility holding it up, or the fill valve is stuck. When dishwasher calls for water, it fills until this float rises to proper level and shuts the valve off at proper level. If it sticks, water will shut off at improper level.
Some dishwashers have some sort of float switch. They can stick , try rocking dish washer if stuck mid cycle, I would make sure the food collect grid at bottom is clear, try flushing machine through with an empty load now and then, you can buy stuff for cleaning dishwasher insides too. pete
dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the
dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water
temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the
kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the
temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
