Question about Candy 24 in. CD622 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Timer not advancing

My Candy CD623 dishwasher has stopped working. The Timer does not advance no matter which programme I use. It fills with water and then stops. If I advance it myself it appears to function o.k. i.e. the motor goes, water comes out of the arms, the arms spin and I can also advance it to drain. I have checked the wiring to the timer but it all looks O.K.


I have not checked the thermostat or element but I would not have thought this would cause the timer not to advance anyway. Am I right assuming this?


Could there be a fuse supplying power to the timer? If so where is it located. I feel it is likely to be the timer itself but I would like a second opinion before buying and fitting a new one.

Re: Timer not advancing

Jallen, your troubleshooting skills are right on. The timer itself is the problem... specifically, the motor that drives the timer cams. Unfortunately you have to replace the whole timer, not just the motor.

You asked about a fuse that might supply power to it. No. The timer gets its power from a redundant switch assy at the door lock. If even one of these switches fails, no power at all will be sent to the timer... therefore, you'd get no power to any other component. Since all other functions of the DW are working OK, you can safely diagnose it with having a failed timer.

Good job!

Water is not being taken in on our candy Aquaviva CD 623 dishwasher

First check and see if there is plenty of water coming into the machine by examining the fill hose inself.
You likely will have to disconnect that hose, not at the machine end, the sink end.
Then, find a way to test the wires to the fill valve, should likely be 110 volts when the machine starts, allowing the fill valve to open.
A volt-ohm meter will tell you, set it to over 110 volts on the A.C. setting.
If no power to the fill valve, you may be facing a new timer.
Be blessed.

Machine don't fill & Control knob don't advance automatically

Every machine is wired differently. It's possible but not likely that it has a fuse in the circuitry. My guess is that the level sensing tube is blocked and the washer thinks it is at the preset level, ior that the sensing tube has a leak in it. Similar to a hole in a straw. The washer can not advance and operate in automatic if its preset is not satisfied. The preset here is wherever you or it sets the level. Once thw washer fills then a contact closes and turns the timer motor on and advances the timer.

Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

* It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never
advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace
the timer.

* It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates,
drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Candy nova cd112

I appear to have solved this problem. Firstly I slightly adjusted the door catch on the actual machine, the strong wire bit, outwards. Then I undid the screws on the top part of the door exposing the electrics of the dial and door micro switch. I noticed that the microswitch (the small metal part pushed in and let out by the plastic arm rotated when opening and shutting the door) was dirty or rusty. I sprayed a little WD40 on this and played with the door catch a few times. I then screwed everything back in to place and the machine works perfectly. Easy and quick and a lot cheaper than the £80 I had just been quoted by a service person to come and change the switch mechanism as he called it!
