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
Colin

    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.

Candy Model CE10 won't spin


It sound like the carbon brushes in the motor may need changing. It sohuld still be okay to get repaired, as most machines have generic brushes for all of thier models. It's worth calling an engineer and suggesting that the brushes have gone in the motor to get a quote on the repair job. Some engineers will come out and give you a free quote anyway.

Candy washer dryer not drying


there is a safety feature which advances the timer to a stop position if it overheats on dry. this is caused by poor air flow.
to cure, take the dryer duct off mand clean of lint. this especially accumulates at the bend where the duct enters the tub.

Over filling


pressure switch pipe is either blocked or damaged, the weight of the water pushes air up the pipe to activate the switch to stop the water filling, for some reason its not doing so,

this is a small thin pipe that goes from a point in the machine low down, to a little round flat object (normally) up near the top of the machine inside up near the top

drain the machine and clear out the pipe at the bottom where it joins  the drum or whatever, make sure joints are made good
if i have helped please rate me
