Question about Candy CN146 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Candy Activa C2 510

Hi Guys,

I have problems with my CANDY. Every time I start it - it reaches a certain point when it stops (in the middle of washing) and 2 leds from the indicators start blinking (led R++ and the led for 90 minutes remaining). After I start the program again - it completes OK. How can I solve that or I should bring the machine to technician?

Thanks

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

You can start with cleaning the drain filter pump assembly located inside the front bottom panel of the washer. After it's cleaned and the problem is back then replacing the control board is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a candy CMI 146 ACTIVA SYSTEM washing machine it stops half way through a cycle. The water does not drain away and the door security light comes on and the door does not open.


  • You probably have a blockage in the drain outlet. heck the outlet trap and then the hose from the bowl to the pump
  • Often coins get in this hose.
