Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Candy washing machine fills with water when not on.

The washing machine seems to work no problem, washes, spins and empties. Yet when left for a while, I come back to open the door and it is at least half full of water. It did this once before, while still under warrenty, but stopped doing it just as I gave up trying to work out why and was about to call in an engineer. Can you help with ideas?

Do check your outlet filter, this requires periodic cleaning according to your usage. Refer to your user manual re cleaning filter.

Good evening Julie

Try this way, turning the machine off, waiting and over to the programme you want.

The machine washes and spins but stops whenever it should be emptying the water- so now it is full of water and I need to empty it and fix it.

Check water level switch. may be the small tube that carries water to the switch assembley. Either clogged or air trapped. Pull it re fix it. it should become ok.

Before that fill the m/c with water manually. Switch off power supply to the washer and attempt. ( Safety precaution)

Washing machine candy grand'o 1400 has stuck, vanish stain light

Ok, turn the washing machine off and unplud. Open the flap at the bottom left of the machine. Put a bucket underneath it. Unscrew the cap. Water will pour out - lots of it and very quickly - so make sure you have a bucket underneath it and lots of towels round that.
Once the water has drained out, check there are no blockages in there. You may find that some coins or buttons flush out with the water. That will be your problem.
Once clear, screw the plug back in and turn on machine.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....

if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Candy Model CE10 won't spin

It sound like the carbon brushes in the motor may need changing. It sohuld still be okay to get repaired, as most machines have generic brushes for all of thier models. It's worth calling an engineer and suggesting that the brushes have gone in the motor to get a quote on the repair job. Some engineers will come out and give you a free quote anyway.
