Question about Candy AQW130 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer not heating up

The dryer is not heating up. It is a hot and cold fill so the washing machine works okay as long as I only do up to a 40 degree wash. If I wash in more than 40 degrees there is a high pitched noise. Also the dryer is making the same noise but does not heat up at all. Can you please help. Matcaz

Re: Dryer not heating up

I just had Sears Kenmore come out to my house because dryer drum turned, but did not heat up. It was a circuit breaker. My dryer has two voltages, 110 for the drum and 220 for the heater. It was 110.00 for me to learn to press the circuit breaker. I hope this helps you. Karen

Which is hot & cold inlet connection

If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

I have a candy ciw 100t washer dryer and the water never gets hot, is this a cold fill washing machine?

to find if this is a cold fill machine only, just check the back and see how many hoses are fitted to it.I would assume it is cold fill and the problem is within the heater.

The clothes in the washer dryer at the end of the wash are really hot and therefore start to shrink the dryer button is not on and the wash is on a 30 degree heat can you help?

If you have washer set for a warm rinse and the cold water inlet screen is restricted you will get too much hot water. Another thing I have seen is if another near by faucet has a sprayer on it and the sprayer is off, but the hot and cold valves supplying the sprayer are on, the hot water can feed back through that faucet and give you an increased rinse water temp in your washer. Also, make sure hot and cold hoses are attached to the proper side of the inlet valve.
