Question about Candy Dishwashers

1 Answer

Stops pumping in middle of program

Hi,
I have a dishwasher from Candy A9010 Smart, 6 years old.
It sometimes at the early phase or at a later phase of the programm starts beeping 3 times fast and it gives error code E3 in the display. The fresh water has entered the machine. Starting up a new programm correctly pumps away the water.
Sometimes the machine runs ok for 6 weeks (daily use) and then for 2 weeks after it stops 20 times during a program and I need to open and close it and it runs for 5 minutes. eventually the error E3 pops up if i do nothing.
According to the manual this should be an error to the water heater on the left side of the machine. Since the water is heated I called the servicedesk and they told me it might be a dirt blocking the waterline to the top of the machine (through the water heater).
I disassembled the complete waterways and all is clean and open.
Does anyone have any idea what this might be?
If the machine stops it sounds like it is stopped by some protection system. A lot of air-noises in the machine. Could it be that there is a safety feature check with air pressur block or something? Can this be dirty?

Hi there,

I know it is a bit late, but maybe it would help the others.
This E3 error means, that the water temperature did not reach desired level (for example 60C if you are using 60C program) in a given time.
The dishwasher starts the heater and waits for example 10 minutes for the water to reach the temp.
The heater is located on the left side of the dishwasher - it heats
water flowing from the bottom bowl to the sprinkler on the top.
There can be few reasons:
- the heating device is dead - easy to check - if the water is hot when E3 appears, then this is not the case
- the water duct from the bottom bowl to the top sprinkler is messy, and needs cleaning (there are some rubber pipes of quite small diameter)
- the temperature sensor (thermistor) is dead / not responding fast enough. It is mounted to the bottom bowl and can be reached from the front cover, under the doors.

Hope it would help to somebody.
I have already had this and few other problems. All of them have about 5-6 reasons to appear, and I think I know all of them for now :-)
For me, knowing what to expect and how to fix each E-something, this dishwasher is perfect and will last forever :-)

Regards,
Piotr

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

I have a AEG Favorit 65011 VI dishwasher which stops in the middle of a programm an shows error ,60 that is not mentioned in the Users Manual. Can you please help me?


Fault in heating phase. Could be:
Heating element, wiring between heating element and power board,
power board (usually relay). Sometimes can help to resoldering (cold solder joint) or replaced relay on power board.

My Candy DFI Plan shows E3 and stops washing after 10-15 minutes. The problems started because electronics( I swithed with new) than I change the water pump, the heater, the thermostats and when is on,...


E3 - Missing heating of the water.

Could be:
· Clogged filtering plate.
· Defective heating element.
· Defective wiring (open circuit, leads
off place or loose).
· Defective electronic control board.

You have already changed all major electrical components energized during the heating phase. But do not forget that failures sometimes could be mechanical. For example: failure could be in hydraulic circuit of pressure switch, sometimes hydraulic circuit can lost air pressure. Another note would be that your dishwasher have NTC thermistor which every second gives information about temperature to electronic than electronic controlled heating element by a relay.
In order to heating element come under the voltage is necessary to fulfill a couple of requirements. Microswitch on the door in the closed position, the pressure switch in position 11-13 (full position , level of water) and the main switch is turned on.

I have a candy cdi 3515 and after about 1/2 an hour into the programme it stops and a continuous alarm bleeping starts.


Is there water in the dishwasher when it stops?
Are you able to check if the water is normal temperature or warm/ hot?

Can you try the dishwasher in a short cycle and see if it completes the cycle?
