CANDY Dishwasher CD1012 - not heating, not completing programme

Our Candy CD1012 built-in dishwasher has suddenly started not completing the cycle and does not seem to be heating up beyone lukewarm. When it stops the cycle the dishwasher has drained, but it does not seem to be hot, nor has it cleaned particularly well (perhaps due to water temperature) and I'm not sure that it has completed a full rinse. The main noticeable problem though seems to be the temperature.

    My Candy CD1012 dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle, when setting the cycle the light is continuously on but when the cycle starts and the water comes in the light keeps fluctuating and so does the cycle so kind of on and off and carries on like this until the main switch is turned of or the front door is opened. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be ?

SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't drain

Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Leaking dishwasher

Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Water Will not Drain

It could be cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine,but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube from any obstruction. Good luck !

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dishwasher DU850DWGX1 won't completely drain

Commonly this is result of low water pressure or hose height/length

As long as the water is below the heating element and the dishes are getting clean its actually normal. Sometimes the pressure or hose length/height meets specs but will not always drain all water.

But as long as it is below the heating element this is normal

I am sure.

Water doesn't heat up and cycle seems to be stuck, candy DFI 45


What is a Candy brand dishwasher? Made in the UK? That is not a manufacturer I have ever heard of here in the US.
What do you mean, 'doesn't seem to heat up any sense?'
If the dishwasher is older than 5 years, write it off to age a buy a new, high quality machine. Or do the dishes by hand.
Machines get old and die. If you are UK native, don't buy anothre Candy.

Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

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?

Dishwasher starts but never seems to come out of wash cycle


Hi,

Check to see if the unit is heating. Open the door mid cycle. If the unit doesn't heat then the unit cannot advance to the next step in the programme. it is basically waiting to reach temperature which it won't if the heating element or thermostat has blown. Hope this helps.

Bauknecht GSX4756 dishwasher


I have this problem frequetly - it's an easy one to fix! Just press the programme button which changes the programme setting you want (on my built-in GSX4756 it's the last button on the right) and keep it pressed in until the beeping stops. Then start it again (will probably be on the rinse programme if it's like mine).
