“Built in obsolescence”

Written on: 22/09/2019 by BarbaraAustralia (1 review written)

I bought a Smeg 14 place dishwasher on the advice of a salesman . We had the extra 2 yr product care replacement . It required one repair during that time .This was completed well and efficiently at no cost to myself.However....... At 3 yrs it started to pour water all over the kitchen floor . Damaging my wooden floor and of course its now out of warranty. Don`t be misled by the Smeg name. I think from my experience they are relying on previous good products to sell inferior short term… Read Full Review

“It’s supposed to be in the name! ”

Written on: 02/07/2019 by Scaffspence (1 review written)

This Smeg DI6013D-1 is Possibly the worst product I’ve ever bought! Don’t buy one thinking it’s an upgrade to any other one...it really isn’t. This morning it couldn’t even remove the coffee from a cup, well 2 cups actually. It is a shame that these items are so large and plumbed in as we would have returned it long ago. As I believe many other people would too. It is not fit for purpose and I feel aggrieved at having spent the extra money on one. The one it replaced was a Bosch, but… Read Full Review

“Design disaster”

Written on: 03/11/2018 by Woodwardxj142 (1 review written)

We recently replaced a NEFF dishwasher after 6 years service with a Smeg. Aptly named it is a truly awful piece of kit. It must have been designed by an absolute imbecile with no practical experience of putting stuff in a dishwasher. Not enough space for plates, the cup/ glass section is all at angles which means if you have any bottom heavy items like most glasses, they will not stand up and so roll around unless you have them wedged in. Every day becomes like a jigsaw puzzle of trying to… Read Full Review

“Thought Smeg were supposed to be decent?”

Written on: 20/08/2016 by abPorterfield329 (1 review written)

We moved into a newbuild house where most of the appliances were included. Our developer had chosen Smeg and we were pretty OK with that as we thought Smeg were a decent make. Six years on, we have a very different view. The double oven element went after two years and needed replacement after 2 years, and then the replacement element went the same way 3 years later. Enough was enough and we replaced the oven with a Neff model which is excellent. Even replacing the oven, the difference in… Read Full Review

“Service”

Written on: 09/12/2015 by Wiltcher (1 review written)

I have a Smeg dishwasher, model D16012-1 which is now 1 year old. Despite being instructed not to rinse the dishes etc before putting them in the machine, I find that there is a residue on the back of the dishes where the drying process has baked on food residue. I also 'lost' the cap to the rinse-aid department. It would appear that Smeg won't supply the cap alone, but insist that you purchase the complete tablet and rinse-aid component at a cost of just under £70 which, if one was to… Read Full Review

Richardhardwick1953's Response to Wiltcher's Review

Written on: 16/04/2018

We purchased a Smeg dishwasher in January 2017 but not working until March due to fault in manufacturing. Took 3 visits to fix and complaint to Smeg was just ignored and they would not extend warranty for further 2 months for time it was not working. Very disappointed by Smeg’s attitude

“Really dreadful dishwasher in every regard”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by Isobel34 (1 review written)

We recently moved into a house which had had an integrated Smeg dishwasher fitted less than 18 months previous. It does not clean well, resulting in the need to re wash many items from the top level after the cycle which is rather wearing. For reasons I do not understand, you cannot fit standard dinner plates into the bottom section or chopping boards as the rotating arm would hit them. I can't wait to replace this ill designed model for another make which may serve the basic requirements of a… Read Full Review

“smeg dishwashers don't wash”

Written on: 05/04/2014

Hi bought our Smeg dishwasher a while back , but have to say it is nowhere near as good as our previous Hotpoint Dishwasher which lasted years and years.The Hotpoint used to give you sparkling dishes etc the Smeg just does not do that, we have the finish of the cleaning in the sink with lots of things very disappointed. Would not recommend Smeg dishwashers as they don't wash good enough… Read Full Review

“DON'T BUY SMEG!!”

Written on: 09/01/2013

Purchased a Smeg Dishwasher DC136LW from Curry's online in July 2012. By Sept 2012 it had packed up completely. Under guarantee as only 2 months old. Waited 3 weeks to get it repaired. (Parts coming from overseas). Beginning Dec 2012, stopped working again. Engineer came out 13th December 2012. Same issue as previous. Got to order parts again, should only take 4/5 days. Its now 9th Jan 2013 and when I called to chase, parts still not in!!! Therefore all of Christmas had inconvenience of… Read Full Review

Exactly the same thing happened to me! bought a Smeg Dishwasher just before Christmas, broke down in January - had to wait over a month for spares to arrive from Italy. Engineer came back on Monday to fix it and today it is broken again - same fault. Smeg Service won't get an engineer to me for another week! Today - I booked it in for a full refund. I used Bosch previously too - will be going back to them!

We have had our smeg slimline dishwasher for nearly 8 years..... This is the second time the dishwasher has broken down.....the first time it broke down was within 3 years of the Smeg included 5 year guarantee where there was a major electronic console fault.
Even then it took two attempts to verify the fault with the dishwasher.
Nearly 5 years later our dishwasher has developed a fault and we have
Have invested over £100 to call out an engineer via a smeg repair specialist to replace a part within the machine and unfortunately the dishwasher has become even more noisy and flooded the kitchen floor and has generated a new error code while still displaying the original error!
We contacted smeg headquarters and they do not want to know.....they are only interested in selling new dishwashers....very very disappointing.They are very good at fobbing off existing customers whom have existing appliance smeg problems....
As for smeg specialist repair operation they refunded part of our money for the repair but kept £44 admin fee!

The runners in our smeg dishwasher lasted less than 12 months and the design does not allow plates to stand up without hitting the spinning washer. It is absolute rubbish… Read Full Review

“Smeg Dishwasher is awful”

Written on: 09/04/2012 by CarlosSta (1 review written)

I have never had such a poor product, it won't take plates properly, it doesn't wash and the detergent compartment opens as and when it can be bothered. Truly awful design, build quality and capability… Read Full Review

“We bought a stainless steel Smeg dishwasher and it...”

Written on: 04/01/2011

We bought a stainless steel Smeg dishwasher and it stopped working soon after the guarantee ran out. We wasted money having it repaired because if failed again soon after. It was junk within 2 years of purchase.

Smeg products look stylish but are very badly made and unreliable, it is a brand we avoid completely now… Read Full Review

“I have yet to find a dishwasher sales person in Comet...”

Written on: 07/03/2008

I have yet to find a dishwasher sales person in Comet - from whence I bought this piece of rubbish- who knows what a 12 place setting comprises let alone what size a "dinner" plate should be. I have also learned that as Comet have bought out the manufacturer's guarantee Smeg will do nothing to help or rectify the situation and have basically washed their hands of it even though Comet keep referring me back to them… Read Full Review

I think Smeg are highly disappointing products. If you think I'm making it up, go ahead and buy one of their over priced units, and see how long it lasts before flooding your home. Save yourself loads of grief and buy a (working) Bosch… Read Full Review
