Smeg Dishwasher Error Code E05
Dishwashers have become very popular over recent years to become one of the most used luxury appliances in your home. It has been proven that using the dishwasher to clean your plates and cutlery uses less water than washing up by hand.
Just like any other appliance though, your dishwasher can also suffer from developing some faults from time to time. One such fault could lead to an E05 error code to be flashing on the LCD display. This error code is usually associated with a water filling issue.
Luckily for you though, we can help you with this problem - and talk you through the most likely causes of why your dishwasher may not be filling.
Solenoid Inlet Valve
A possible cause which could lead to your dishwasher not filling at all may be a faulty inlet valve (also known as a fill valve). If you suspect that your valve is no longer operating at its optimal performance, you can see our helpful steps below to assist you in some checks that you can do - so you can hopefully get your dishwasher working like new once again.
Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.
- Check the solenoid valve flow meter for any signs of damage.
- Remove the fill hose.
- Carefully remove the small filter from the inside of the valve or the hose seal filter if fitted and inspect for blockages. If the filter is clear, the solenoid valve is likely to need replacing. Prior to replacing check the water valve for faults using a multimeter.
