Question about Candy CNW156 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Washer Dryer overfills and pours out through front door

Candy Eclypsa CE10 washer dryer. Been told its either the pressure switch or pipe to it.
I removed pipe and blew down it to clear but could be the wrong pipe. It seems to go down to a plastic chamber behind the drum but the switch at the other end is located between the two water inlets at the back. This switch boes not look like the one in a photo as it's square and small not round and about 50mm diameter.
If I have the wrong pipe how can I find the right one
Thanks for your help

    Thankyou for your reply. There are two switches on my machine I blew down both pipes and into the switches. This appears to have done the trick.

The pressure switch tube is only about 5mm in diameter so is easy to find, to be certain it is not blocked you need to remove it and check to see it is clear, and that the lower end where it is fixed is also clear, also make sure it is not punctured as this will result in loss of air pressure and stop the switch from working..
I assume it stops filling when you turn m/c off.
If it does not then you have a sticking water inlet valve.
plz rate my solution. Thanks.

My washing machine motor not rotating in washing cycle. Motor works well in Spinning cycles, but not working agitatewashing movement in any cycle. It's water filling, stopping and draining all works

Would help to have the model and type...but typically if the tub is not agitating the coupling between the motor and the tub is worn out or broken. However, if it is spinning properly, it probably indicates a problem with the transmission. Really need to know what type of washer it is to help pin down the problem. Any "burnt" smells coming from the washer? Give a little more information and maybe we can figure it out. Top load...side load, make and model preferred. You can locate that information on a plate usually attached inside the door on most models.

EWX14450 washer dryer. Drain works fine. Why is it overflowing?

Found the problem with mine that had identical symptoms... after taking the lid off. i took the pressure switch off the hose. blew on the pressure switch when filling and you can hear the 3 clicks. the machine resumed onto next phase. i blew down the hose and this was clear and bubbling into machine. but then i discovered half way down the hose - it was damaged and had a hole. presumably from the drum rubbing on the hose over many years. now just need too replace this and it should work fine.

Hi my candy eclypsa washing machin cj534. ihave heater element in rear side but icant dryer after washing please can you expline me how to oparate and make dryer thank you your customer

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I think a manual would help you ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

Error code fo5

f05 is normally a fault cause by the pressure switch - often caused by a blockage in the exit hose of the washer. if the water cannot leave the washer in time the f05 will come up because the pressure switch has not told the machine it empty. on hotpoints there is a filter inside the exit pipe from the drum to the pump which gets blocked up. need to remove and clear out the sump assembly and this normally fixes the f05 error. if this does not cure the issue then the pressure switch is probably faulty but its notmally just a blocked pipe.
