Customer Question

I am looking for a diagram on how the connectors fit & in which order to the control unit behind the program button on my SMEG DF612SDX dishwasher. My botton failed too and it was the plastic lever that had broken so I have replaced the parts with the correct SMEG parts, but I must have put the connectors back incorrectly as the program cycle now is too short! :(( is this something you can help with please? Thanks Toni

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Are all of the programs off now? Can you please post a picture of the way it is wired now?

Hi Kelly,
I wrote down the order of the connectors before removing them so I am pretty sure they are in the correct order & place, so not sure why when I choose a program, it only lasts for a quarter of the time it should! Please see the attached images. Thanks

Those connectors are "keyed," in that they will only fit on one spot. There are cutouts on the connectors that orient them accordingly. So, I also agree that they are on correctly. Can you double check that model number because I cannot get it to come up on the service site to access the programming information.

The model no. Is definitely DF612SDX as this is what I have used when ordering the spare parts I've fitted.

For some reason it is not coming up on the tech site. I am going to place your questions up for others to see while I wait upon a request for the technical information for this unit. Perhaps another has that information readily available.

Okay, thanks

I have since downloaded the manual for my dishwasher and have realised that the dishwasher is showing an E8 fault as the program is interuppted (not shortened) as I have a blinking 4th light and static 5th light, which according to the manual is an Alternate washing system malfunction. Before I call an engineer out is there anything I can try to resolve this myself please?
