The dishwasher is equipped with a self-diagnostics system that is capable of detecting and signalling a number of possible faults.
|Er 01||The anti-flooding system (where present) has been tripped.|
|Er 02||The water level limitation system has tripped.|
|Er 03||The appliance cannot heat the water.|
|Er 04||The temperature sensor is disconnected.|
|Er 05||The appliance cannot take in the water.|
|Er 06||The appliance cannot drain the water from the tank.|
|Er 07||The dishwasher cannot measure the precise water quantity that has been loaded.|
|Er 08||Problem on the water distribution system to the baskets.|
|Er 09||Water intake system malfunction.|
|E1||Acquastop failure. The anti-flooding system has been activated (for the relevant models only). The system is tripped in case of water leaks. Contact the after-sales service.|
|E2||Safety level. The system which limits the water level inside the dishwasher has been tripped. Interrupt the program and switch off the dishwasher. Switch the dishwasher back on, program it again and start the washing cycle. If the problem persists, contact the after-sales service.|
|E3||Water heating malfunction. The water is not heated or the heating parameters are not correct. Repeat the washing program; if the problem persists, contact the after-sales service.|
|E4||Water temperature monitoring malfunction. Interrupt the program and switch off the dishwasher. Switch the dishwasher back on, program it again and start the washing cycle.|
|E5||Water intake malfunction. The appliance does not take in water or does not do so correctly. Check that the water connections are correct, the water intake tap is turned on and the filter is not fouled.|

|C6||Engineer Intervention. Once temperature is reached the machine will buzz and stop. To continue the test press the Start button.|
|C7||Regeneration. After a short wash the regeneration valve is energised for about 10 seconds with the wash motor running|
|C8||Pressure Switch Test. Wash motor stops and machine fills to safety level.|
|C9||Engineer Intervention. Once the safety level is reached press the Start button.|
|CF||Drain. Machine drains and the regeneration valve is energised.|
If an alarm occurs the appliance interrupts the program in progress and signals a fault.
- Alarms E1, E2, E3, E4, E8 and E9 interrupt the current program immediately.
- The E5, E6 alarms interrupts the running program once the cause is resolved, it will bring bach the execution of the program.
- The alarm E7 is visualized at the end of the cycle that comes, however, brought to the end since the operation of the dishwasher is not harmed.
To “reset” an alarm is necessary: Open and close the door, or turn off and on the machine. At this point is possible to program the dishwasher again. If the malfunction persists, contact your authorised Service Centre.
Smeg Dishwasher Troubleshooting
|The L1 Led Indicator Does Not Turn On||There is no electrical current. Verify the electrical current connection.|
|The Wash Program Does Not Start||The dishwasher has not finished loading. Wait for the ">"led indicator to turn red.|
|Rinse Insufficient||Sprinkler nozzles clogged Calcium encrustations in the boiler. Verify the cleanliness of the nozzles and the correct function of any installed water softeners.|
|Glasses And Silverware Are Stained||Rinse-aid inadequate or not dispensed correctly. Water is of a hardness level above 12°dF or contains many dissolved salts. Verify the rinse-aid container and ensure its adequacy for use with the water supply. If the problem persists contact assistance.|
|Water Is Present In The Tank After Draining||Drainage tube is positioned poorly or is partially blocked. Verify that the dishwasher’s tube and drain are not blocked and that the drain is not in too high of a position; see the connection diagram.|
|If the program fails to start, check that:||-the dishwasher is connected to the electrical power supply; -there is no power failure; -the water tap is open; -the dishwasher door is properly closed.|
|If water remains inside the dishwasher, check that:||-the drain hose is not kinked; -the drain siphon is not obstructed; -the dishwasher filters are not clogged.|
|If the dishes fail to dry or remain dull, check that:||-there is rinse aid inside the special container; -the rinse aid dispenser setting is correct; -the detergent used is of good quality and has not lost its effectiveness|
|If there are visible traces of rust inside the tank:||-the tank is made of steel, and therefore any rust marks are due to external elements - check that the amount of detergent being used is correct. Certain detergents can be more corrosive than others. -check that the cap of the salt container is securely closed, and that the water softening setting is correct.|
