Candy CNW156 washer/dryer: spins empty, won't spin under load

When i run the washing machine empty the drum rotates, when it is loaded it will try to rotate, but struggles, then stops and trys to rotate in the opposite direction and has the same problem.

I removed the motor and had a friend check it for me, and he said he was sure that the motor was ok.

I also checked the belt, that looks ok aswell.

Any help would be appreciated

If the belt and the motor are OK, then tell your friend to check the motor coupler, the MCU (motor control unit).

Machine starts to spin out of control


Both problems could be related to a blocked drain, from what I can see in the manual. 3 Things to check -

1. Clean the filter - instructions can be found on age 24 of the manual.
2. Check the drain hose has no kinks/securely fitted.
3. Check the drain trap under the sink for blockages. Make sure waste water can drain away freely.

Keep a couple of old towels handy when checking the drain filter, if water is trapped in the machine, it will flow out of the filter housing when you remove it. Try a drain cycle for a minute or two before you remove the filter, then turn the machine off, and check it. That way you'll have drained as much water as it will allow.

The manual can be found here- http://service.candy-domestic.co.uk/manuals/pdfs/CNW156.pdf

Hi my candy washer/dryer keeps making a odd noise when quick spinning. Lastnite there was a 'odd smell like burning rubber. when i opened it there was a little smoke, and a bit of rubber inside. is it...


You have a mis-aligned drum and you should check the perimeter rubber gasket to verify if there is some rubbing on it. I can't say for sure what the odd noise is except for a rubbing situation. If you ar able to replace the rubber then replace it and I hope you have been removing and cleaning you gasket to prevent any mildew build up. I would replace the washing machine if the motor and transmission is not operating. Good Luck

Wash.machine won't spin


Door lock switch # 131763245 if everything else is working fine this should fix the problem. It shorts out between the motor control board and the door lock from emptying the cycle and spinning. Try running your machine on drain/spin and see if it drains and tosses clothes and then stops with no spin. If that happens then it is your door lock.switch. Easy to replace by yourself and costs $65.00
