Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Help - I'm up to my knees in water! Got a Candy DQW150 washer/dryer and it won't drain. Half way through a cycle. Taken the screw thing off (sorry, don't know technical name) and loads of water comes out. Can't feel a blockage. This seems to be the only way of getting the water out. The drums going round but won't drain the water. Don't know what to do!!!

First, turn the water off at the wall.

I cannot determine if the timer is manual or electronic, but if manual, try rotating it through to the pump drain cycle. I did find where the pump is a separate unit from what drives the agitator, and because I found it so quickly indicates that it may have a high rate of failure. If the pump has failed, you will need to have the water siphoned or pumped out of the washer, then have the pump serviced or replaced.

I have a Candy washer/dryer. When I have come in from work this afternoon it has not emptied the water out t the end of its cycle. Could the filter be blocked!! I am not sure where to locate it


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Herewith my standard/generic guidance notes for such problems ;-0)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I have a candy ciw 100t washer dryer and the water never gets hot, is this a cold fill washing machine?


to find if this is a cold fill machine only, just check the back and see how many hoses are fitted to it.I would assume it is cold fill and the problem is within the heater.

Find out where your filter is; it is at the end of the thick hose coming down from the bottom of your tub; open up and clean out. Another possibility is there could be something stuck in your drum, feel if you could locate it. Next clean out the hoses in machine. After all this flush out with a hot wash, without clothes.

Hi, I have a Candy CIW100T washing machine and its recently stopped draining the water aty the end of the cycle. Can you help please? Thanks


Check filter behind kick plate on bottom front of machine. Drain water out first by lowering drain hose into bowl or bucket.
Plz come back if further help required.

Clothes dryer


washer dryer and dryer ony machines differ in a huge way. the big diff. is the drums on each are completly different sizes. the conventional dryer has the bigger, giving better air flow and tumble to clothes. the w/d has a smaller drum thus less air flow and less tumble between clothes. the best way to see this effect is remove half the clothes after a wash and then select a drying cycle. u will see that by giving the clothes more room to tumble free of each other rather than tumbling in a large ball will dry them. washer dryers are really only a marketing tool.

Dryer heats but no condensing of steam


The cold water feeds for condenser cooling and for wash cycle drum fill are controlled by separate solenoid valves (manifolded together at the cold water inlet hose union). When the solenoid on my condenser coolant valve failed a couple of years back, I got symptoms like yours. A new pair of valves isn't expensive to buy and is a trivial job to fit. If this is what has been happening, suggest you also inspect the insides of your dryer fan and of the pump - neither of mine took really kindly to having been cooked for hours on end. Alastair.
