Having problems with your Smeg 24 in. STX2 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a SMEG dishwasher. Can't find the model number on dishwasher or manual. Had two flashing lights and referred to manual - indicates a blocked filter. Cleaned that out, but now when I try to put it on "light" cycle (indicated by wineglass symbol), that light flashes (but no others as would indicate a problem).. All the other cycles work fine. Any ideas? Thank you!

Hi.

If only the crystal light is flashing and no other light is on, then that is not an error code. Problem can be a temporary malfunction, or a defective control module or keypad.

The delicate (crystal) light flashing with last light on the right (heavy washing) steady on means that overflow has been detected. I quote:

Safety level
The system limiting the water level in the dishwasher has tripped. Interrupt the current program. Switch off the dishwasher, switch it back on again, program a new cycle and press start. If the problem persists, contact the technical assistance service.

Disconnect power. Move the dishwasher. Dry water from the inside again. Test the dishwasher with the drain hose at the back laid down in a bucket. Incorrect drain hose height settings may cause water flowing back into the appliance (siphoning).

Regards.

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working bu

I have whirlpool Dish washer model GU 120 ES (bought in 2001). When we start the dish washer cycle the unit starts for a minute, then the "start indicator" light flashes. As indicated in the instructions, we press the "start button" for five (5) seconds, at this time the washer clears the water out and stops. If you can assist this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start. The 'start' button was acting up and would have to press a few times before light would flash and then the dishwasher would work. Now everything lights up but start button does not work. Opene

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
