Cm1146s candy washer wont stop filling

My candy cm1146s, 12-18 ,months old starts a cycle and then runs throught it ,then begins all over again. also,it fills with water despite the door being open. candy want £99 just to visit, i think it might be electrical. the downloadable pdf manual is unbelievably simplistic and does not cover these errors . can anyone help, or has anyone had similar problems?

    I've been suffering with the same issue. Have finally got around to researching potential causes and found this website which suggests a faulty water valve which is not shutting off properly. http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/diy-repair-h...



    Have also noticed that the stop tap under my sink is not working, which could back up the above.

If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Sounds like siphoning. This can happen if your drain pipe is too low and you run the drain hose right into it, or if there isn't any kind of air gap between the drain hose and pipe. Usually it shows up when trying to fill for the rinse cycle - it drains as fast as it fills. Or it might not fill at all. Order a "siphon break kit". They're cheap and easy to install

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    Washer Pauses and Shuts down Repeatedly


    Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water
