Question about Candy DQW150 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Programme 1 When the machine is switched onto the above programme 1, there is a loud humming noise and water leaks out from the front detergent dispenser. The machine only partly fills, and does not dry properly in that programme. That does not happen in other programme numbers. I have checked all hoses and there are no apparent leaks Both drier elements are ok, all overload swithches are ok and condenser seems to be unblocked and water flows through it.The dryer fan motor is running as is the drain pump motor. Is there a cold solenoid problem here or is it something else?

Re: Programme 1

Make sure both solenoids have a working supply (if two fitted) at rear.

Front Loader LG Inverter 7.5kg model WM-12330 FB On the last wash it wouldn't drain the water away. Tried 'drain' programme and rinse & spin programme - all works normally till it needs to drain and...

Have you already check your drain clean out? If it's not draining, you'll need to manually drain the washer, via the small hose that pulls out, once it is drained you can unscrew the large clean out filter, and see if anything is caught up in that area.

If all that is clear, it's most likely, you'll need a new drain motor. Also, did you notice if your getting a "OE" error code on the display?

Sure it's not SUD ?? which means you may be using the wrong detergent for a front loader. Use HE detergent.. it has no suds.

Rinse the machine out by using the quick or express wash cycle with cold water and two cups of vinegar in the soap dispenser.

Once those suds are gone, it may take a while, ie a couple of vinegar rinses, it should work just fine.

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never

the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

On the power pcb panel, there is an eeprom. This gets corrupted and throws the machine into a frenzy. A replacement should include a new pcb and a new eeprom. Only from dealers unfortunately.
