Wash twice and plates and pots still dirty

Do not buy.
Used for 11 months, always left scum inside the walls and residue on plates. Would also clean it daily but never helped. Eventually it developed orange scum around the drain that only bleach would remove. Took it to the tip still in 'working' order. Piece of junk. Show details

Dishwasher grief

Loved this dishwasher until just shy of 34mths when I couldn’t start it. Oops out of warranty. No error code as the control panel didn’t work even though power to the unit was ok. No easy fix. What ever happened to quality & reliability. Thought a $1000 dishwasher would last @ least 10 yrs or even 5. Hmm clearly regardless of technology advancements we remain prisoners of advertising & a good sales pitch. Show details ·  2

Best configuration for dishwasher

I have had a Smeg for just over a year and it needed a replacement part on the catch. Smeg were great, they replaced the dishwasher with a newer model which has 3 shelves, top one for cutlery as well as a basket. It is the best configuration and washes my dishes super clean. Probably too many programs to choose from but being able to adjust the rinse aid is also a great feature. Show details

As quiet as a mouse

Must admit, I've only had this dishwasher for a few months, but it is the quietest dishwasher I've ever had. Cleans really well too. Very happy with this product so far. Show details

Worst dishwasher I have ever owned!

Worst dishwasher I have ever owned. Completely unhappy with this! The inside is already deteriorating after 1 year. The filter is not user friendly and is so hard to clean. Show details

On-going issues

I had issues as soon as days after the purchase. Have had the device serviced on 3 separate occasions (door latch broke, split hose, float device faulty & flooding). When it has worked (which to be fair has been maybe 1/3 of the time I have had it), it did a poor job of washing/drying the dishes.... It was easier washing by hand than putting one lot of dishes on multiple dish washing cycles (also saved water!).

I am again awaiting a repair under warranty however will be requesting a refund given the issues I've had.

What I've learnt? Opting for a pricier product does not mean you will receive one of quality. Please avoid this product. Show details

Was good till it broke

Door latch broke 1 month out of warranty. Got a new latch. It broke 6 months later. Now power button flashes and eco light flashing and buttons unresponsive. I thought smeg was a quality brand. Never again. No smeg I will not be contacting you. I'm buying a new one that is not smeg. Show details

Good customer service

The machine broken down before, with the door lock issue and they have it fix.

Glad that they were able to do that even in covid time.
I don't normally rinse my dishes and they usually come out very clean, only handful of time have residual left were because of the machine being over loaded or the plastic container moved by the water jet Show details

Won't start issue

Tonight the dishwasher will turn on but none of the programs can be selected/Won't start. It's less than a year old. Very frustrating. Perhaps I also have the door lock issue described below.  Show details

Great Appliance with exceptional warranty service

I scratched the door of this very fragile appliance while trying to remove the sticker. Warranty replaced the door quickly and efficiently no questions.

It is recommended this dishwasher only be washed with a soft cloth and hot water.

It is also a great dishwasher for a couple and the occasional dinner party. only ocassionally things may not get a proper wash (as in one item per load) of you use a shorter cycle. Otherwise it is very effective.  Show details

Have had your dish washer for around six years, worked fine. Tonight the red light to the left came on, and now the first light is blinking and no other buttons work. Can you help?
