Candy Nova CD112 dishwasher

Hi,
This is about a UK bought dishwasher.
My dishwasher doesn't wash!
The water gets hot. The rotors will turn (and do seem to move when it is working), the filters in the machine are clean.
There just doesn't seem enough pressure to make the water reach into a cup, and the stuff comes out as if sprayed with bits - not gritty or sandy stuff - and it washes off easily.
I wonder if the water level is not heigh enough - does anyone know what it should be?
Otherwise (as posted in reply to similar problems) - are there any hidden filters in the machine?
If not - looks like taking the pump apart....
Thanks,
Tony the yodeller

    Hi,

    I have found the water level seems OK.

    I did what another answer suggested on another post - fil the detergent dipenser with cooking oil and run on a hot, long program to clean out any excess detergent (It did sound a rather weird idea) but I've not had such sparkling dishes for ages.

    But yesterday one of the pots semeed untouched by water, so it may be an intermittent problem.

    I think the back of the machien needs to come off and I'll have a poke around!

    Thanks for your help - this is a great site, with such helpful people. It makes a change as I've found so many sites promise a lot and you end up with no replies.

    All the best,

    Tony the Yodeller

Not enough water in machine
do you have hi or low pressure
when machine is washing try adding a extra litre of water manually eg milk bottle or jug
note the sound of washer before and after
if this improves then that is problem

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.

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

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!

Indesit DIF04 integrated dishwasher


Dishwashers normally are hot or cold feed.
My wife runs water at the sink to get it hot going in before turning on the dishwasher.
You can use either cold or hot water.
We have ours hooked up to the hot water side.
They work better hooked up to the hot water.

Candy


"e" is economy wash and the other buttons are temp selection. i suspect that the problem may be the spray arms not rotating. open bthe door when on wash and check the arms are rotating. if not, remove the arms and clean - they tend to get blocked over a period of time. the arms only rotate with water coming out of angled jets at the end
