SOURCE: candy nova cd112 dishwasher fills with water then stops working

nova cd112 this is a simple fix the machine has a electronic switch to add water to the machine it then has another switch to say the machine has water iin it , this switch is the one that is not working this is the one that turns on the element and heat the water .it costs around a tenner to replace u can find it as it is connected to the element via a wire conection .this a a common problem of over enginearing as this switch is not needed and is not on older machine .ie this switch can only come on when the machine has water in it in other words only after the switch to put water in the machine has been on.can this go on i hope u know what i mean lol. now u can replace this yourself or get an engineer it should take an engineer no more than 10/15 mins to fix better still have him bypass this switch and u will never haver the problem again as this switch is prone to going fixthis and the machine should last years no problem as its not a bad machine not quite a bosch but better than a zanussi or indicit etc hope this helps and may i just say that i tried everything including replacing the element ,stat and cpu non of which worked before realizing it was this .i must also say before u try this. Switch on your machine on put it on a universal cycle as u hear the water going in the machine open the door and add hot water as hot as u can close the door and the machine should do a full cycle including emptying and reheating the water this proves its not the cpu ,element or stat note the machine will not do the cycle without the hot water going in at the start if it does the cycle then its 100 % this switch hope this helps and sorry for the lond explantion bye

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.

E3 - Water heating time out or fault

The dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element.

Check water heating element wiring

E3 - Missing heating of the water.

Could be:
· Clogged filtering plate.
· Defective heating element.
· Defective wiring (open circuit, leads
off place or loose).
· Defective electronic control board.

You have already changed all major electrical components energized during the heating phase. But do not forget that failures sometimes could be mechanical. For example: failure could be in hydraulic circuit of pressure switch, sometimes hydraulic circuit can lost air pressure. Another note would be that your dishwasher have NTC thermistor which every second gives information about temperature to electronic than electronic controlled heating element by a relay.
In order to heating element come under the voltage is necessary to fulfill a couple of requirements. Microswitch on the door in the closed position, the pressure switch in position 11-13 (full position , level of water) and the main switch is turned on.
