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....

Re: Candy Nova CD112 dishwasher
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

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.
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
Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:
* Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.
* Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.
This control panel switch regulates the temperature of the water in the tub. It also plays a role in controlling the fill cycle. If you suspect this switch is faulty, remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing (the test takes special equipment). Or, hook a test wire across the switch terminals; if water flows, the switch is faulty. If the switch is faulty, replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected. If there's a problem with both water temperature and tub filling cycles, both the temperature switch and the timer may be faulty. Test both components and replace them as necessary. Procedures for testing the timer can be found below.
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!
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.
