Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

There seems to be an electrical fault in my dishwasher. It is a slimline candy dishwasher purchased only three years ago. Everytime I try to start it all the electricity goes in the downstairs of my house. I changed the fuse twice and it worked for a while only for the same thing to happen again. I also tried to turn off all other electical equipment downstairs to see if this made a difference, but it still didn't work. Would you have any idea what is wrong with it? Thanks. S. Byrne

Hello sue by rne..
If your fuse blows when you are running the dishwasher alone, I would agree that your dishwasher may have a problem however becuse you stated that it works sometimes..I am more apt to believe that when you run the dishwasher in conjunction with other equipment on that same fuse that the overload condition happens because you've added that dishwasher to an already loaded circuit. The problem is that when you say that you turned off all other electrical equipment downstairs, you may or may not have shut off everything on the circuit the fuse feeds. If there is a way to isolate the dishwasher onto a seperate power feed that you know is not over-loaded then that would prove that the diwshwasher is ok or not.. If you aren't an electrician or trained in this, I suggest you get someone in that is. My initial impression of the problem from your description suggests that your dishwasher is OK but you are somehow overloading the circuit when other things are on.. Hope that helps...

What do I do with a one year old Frigidaire dishwasher that rinses and empties no matter what cycle it is set on. Jusy started doing this 2 weeks ago. I've tried everything in the instruction book?


I would personally contact fridgidaire direct or the retailer that you purchased it from and see what they suggest, sounds like an electronic fault in the control panel

Where can I buy new loading baskets for my DWI 160 dishwasher?


These come as several parts. Not sure if all are available anymore as Candy parts. But you can get replacement Hoover parts to fit.

Main basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Dishwasher Basket

Cutlery basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Universal Cutlery Basket

The Upper and Lower baskets may not be available from Candy but Hoover replacements are
Candy Use HVR41022779 Lower Basket

Best to ask Candy support to provide pictures of the parts for comparison with your model or purchase or a refund policy if not suitable.

There is another site worth checking (but prices seem high)

Water doesn't heat up and cycle seems to be stuck, candy DFI 45


What is a Candy brand dishwasher? Made in the UK? That is not a manufacturer I have ever heard of here in the US.
What do you mean, 'doesn't seem to heat up any sense?'
If the dishwasher is older than 5 years, write it off to age a buy a new, high quality machine. Or do the dishes by hand.
Machines get old and die. If you are UK native, don't buy anothre Candy.

Why is my Bosch SHE4AM15UC dishwashwer not heating water not sanitizing? How do I fix this problem?


The problem could be a failed heating element. If replacement of the control panel results in no change, the element could be the problem.

I have a candy integrated dishwashed and when I set it to do a wash all it does is rinse for hours


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .Inthis case as the machine seems to work on and on it seems that the fault relates to the controller. It seems that the controller does not progress in the cycle and so goes on .

Check how to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html

command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Candy Dishwasher Power Trip Problem...........................


Hi Adam,

Those are tough questions, it depends on accessibility of the parts in question, and the tools you have available to you.
It’s worth remembering that 80% of d/washer faults are mechanical in nature (even the electrical ones). I know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, however I am referring to things like loose connections, broken wires worn parts etc.
First thing to do is have a good look and weigh the job up (English colloquialism) A bad Neutral connection to the heater element would give you these symptoms. An open circuit heater would likely do the same. Moisture in an inappropriate place could also give similar problems.
After gaining access to the business end of the element, check for corroded connectors. If all seems well, and you have access to a multimeter, set it to ohms and measure across the two heater terminals with the wires disconnected. If you get no reading, then the heater element is open circuit and requires replacing. If you do get a reading, and still think the element is suspect, you could try disconnecting both feeds to the heater (not the earth) taping them up with good quality electrical tape so as to isolate them, then try your dishwasher on a cycle where the water would normally be heated. If it doesn’t trip the RCBs then heater is suspect.
This is a good starting point, and will enable you to assess weather you feel comfortable tackling replacing it or not (assuming it is faulty). If you don’t feel comfortable, may I suggest that you purchase the element from a spares supplier yourself, there are many good suppliers on line. Then have a service engineer fit it. This prevents your friendly repair man charging you $90.00 for a $20.00 part.
Of course, it goes without saying, that all these tests should be carried out with the appliance disconnected from the mains supply.

Good Hunting!

Regards……..Dave

Dishwasher


its either the element or the motor, check element for visible signs of damage then if ok remove wires from it and ( making sure to insulate them ) and run the machine if it works then the element needs replacing. and if it doesnt then its the motor.
