Question about Candy Washing Machines
Candy Grand comfort Model GCC 580NC - 80 2 years old when it is on it makes a little buzzing noise but as I say nothing happens. Turned it off at the mains, lint cleaned and water tank empty.
Could be the door interlock or simply there is no water entering the machine. Check water supply and also the vales inside the machine . the solenoids should buzz nd hum a little if they are energised but could still be blocked ???

Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.

These older units had an insert in the agitator that would strip out. Remove your agitator and take to a parts store. They should be able to help you out.

SOURCE: Frigidaire affinity not draining
The problem is that on the infeed side of the pump there is a catch/filter in the Hose/boot that will catch lint and coins (LOTS OF COINS) and will not allow the water to flow through to the pump. This will stop the cycle and prevent the tub from spinning and the basin will not drain.
to fix this turn your washer over and access the pump from the bottom. the boot can be disconnected from the wash basin with a phillips screwdriver, reach in the boot and pull out the plastic catch and empty the debri, reinstall the the catch after cleaning it and put the boot back on. Set your machine back upright and conncet all the hoses and plug it in. It should work. This is a easy job but it will take an hour or so.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually located on the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first. Then, check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading for item number 11 for the lid switch and item number 20 for the lid strike (if needed). If you do not wish to order online, take the part numbers provided by Sears and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These are common parts that most will carry in their store inventory. The following link explains how to replace the switch:
This is a very inexpensive repair that you can easily accomplish on your own. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
PS This is a common problem experienced by this line of washing machines. To prevent future failures, do not slam the washer lid or place anything heavy on the lid. Repeatedly slamming the lid to get it to work, or manipulating the timer can also cause more potential problems.
