Question about Candy A8001 Dishwasher
My machine started a few months ago to have a red light that indicates salt is missing. Even when the salt is there. For some time it worked anyway. Then (I have no idea if the two issues are connected) the dishwasher started beeping at some point of the cycle, normally within the first 5 to 10 minutes, a few times later, and stopped. I called a guy and he said he should replace the salt tank and possibly the heater, but in any case he would not give a warranty on the repair. So before binning it I decided to disassemble it. I cleaned the vertical tank with a kind of labyrinth in it (some of the ducts seemed obstructed) which is on the side, on top of the salt tank, I reassembled it and it started working again. Fine, it was the obstructions, I thought. After a couple of months, here it goes again. I disassemble it, and there is no more obstructions, of course. I reassemble it, AND IT WORKS WELL AGAIN!!!! Now, a few months later, it has started beeping again, and now we found another trick. We turn it off and on... AND THE SECOND TIME IT GOES!!! This is repeatable. Has Candy got a Windows OS in it???? Any suggestion of what can be the cause of this crazy behaviour? Is the salt LED connected to it? How to fix it too? Is it possible that the resins are exhausted and cause the problem? Is it possible to replace the anti-calcium resins without binning the whole tank, which costs all of 135 USD here? Is putting a polyphosfate anti calcium filter before the dishwasher a good idea? Thanks Maurizio
Try to used air compressor and put it to the host or tube where all the water running flow with it in order to force the water clean in the hole way of your machine. I think there was no problem issue with you electric connector's and other particular system.
Please rate me solved if you like my solution.

The problem is your control board (main electronic board in the console) is no good. by shutting the power off to the unit you are "resetting" the board which gives you temperary relief from the problem replace the main board and you will have no further problems let me know how you make out
