Having problems with your Smeg STA4645U 18" Fully Integrated Dishwasher with 5 Wash Cycles, Stainless Steel Racks, 9 Hours Del... Dishwasher ?

Smeg integrated dishwasher continually washing - won't move to drying cycle.


Answers :

You should check the heating element. if the water is not hot enough, the timer will not advance. crack open the door mid-cycle. let the water stop flying around. then open it all the way up. if you don't get a big ball of steam, you have an indication that your heating element may not be working properly. this is not too hard to check the resistance with a multimeter and then replace, if necessary. good luck
My Smeg pl 622-x dishwasher,(no digital display - just a mechanical timer) wouldn't advance past any heat part of a cycle ie a heated wash or drying. The thing just got hotter and went on for hours.Turned out to be a broken thermostat in the bottom of the tub. Replaced it and all worked perfectly.

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill 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

Hi, I have a Siemens SE24A230GB/17 dishwasher and it is not completing the wash cycle (any selected). It appears to be stuck on the 'wash' part of the program. I have done the reset actions as advised in the User Manual and tried another program, without success. I have found that the possible causes could be the timer or thermostat. The estimated time remaining display counts down, but the program does not complete the wash and move onto rinse and dry. Any help or advice you can provide would

I have a Fisher & Paykel 913T soft touch dishwasher. On all types of washes when the wash cycle starts there is no 230 volts on the element & after 5 minutes the wash cycle finishes & then goes onto to the next cycle. None of the wash or rinse cycles heat the water but on the dry cycle their is 230 volts onto the element & dries the dishes OK. Is my problem the power supply PCB or could it be the Controller PCB?
